This latest deployment significantly improves the broadband services that business and residential subscribers receive. Alaska Communications can rapidly expand its fiber network with gigabit wireless technology to provide fast, reliable and cost-effective connectivity using Cambium Networks 60 GHz cnWave equipment with Terragraph, a technology developed by Facebook Connectivity.
“Delivering gigabit speed is a big step forward for our commercial and residential customers,” said Bill Bishop, President and CEO of Alaska Communications. “With the ability to rapidly deploy gigabit service with fixed wireless, we can now reach locations that were previously not achievable with fiber alone. Commercial and residential customers will now have 100, 200 and 500 Mbps offerings, as well as Gigabit speed connectivity for video streaming, online education and fast data transfer. “
Expanding broadband access is increasingly essential today, as more workers and students work or at least partially learn from home. Given Alaska Communications’ leadership in deploying multi-gigabit wireless access to replace DSL, Cambium Networks awarded the company its Wireless Connectivity Hero Award, which rewards visionaries who change the world with wireless technology.
“Alaska Communications is ahead of demand and rapidly deploying fixed wireless to expand core network capacity,” said Atul Bhatnagar, President and CEO of Cambium Networks. “Service providers can quickly upgrade their wireless access network service while getting the most out of their fiber infrastructure. Our proven fixed wireless solution delivers multi-gigabit speeds and enables service providers like Alaska Communications to expand competitive service into new areas in a week or month domain. “
“We are delighted to see commercial deployments of Terragraph compatible network equipment take off around the world, including Cambium Networks cnWave 60 GHz fixed wireless access equipment,” said Dan Rabinovitsj, vice president of Facebook connectivity. “This latest deployment in Alaska highlights how our partners enable service providers to deliver multi-gigabit connectivity, even in the most challenging terrain and weather conditions. ”
Cambium Networks’ complete portfolio of wireless fabric solutions is available through its global network of partners.
Cambium Networks celebrates a decade of excellence in 2021 with more than 10 million radios shipped globally since it began operations in 2011.
