NEC Corporation of America (NEC) has been selected by Wave Broadband, a Kirkland, WA-based gigabit fiber and broadband services company, to deploy iPASOLINK® EX-Advanced ultra-compact radio communication system as part of its service expansion on the West Coast.
The iPASOLINK EX-Advanced wireless system gives broadband service providers a transmission capacity equivalent to that of 10 gigabits per second (Gbps) optical fiber in locations where traditional fiber construction is either cost- or timeline-prohibitive.
Introduced to the U.S. market in July 2016, the iPASOLINK EX-Advanced is among the most field-proven 80GHz 10Gbps outdoor wireless transmission products in the U.S. market. The compact and lightweight system offers a quick deployment and broadband transmission using multiple optical 10Gbps Ethernet interfaces via licensed 80GHz frequencies.
“NEC’s iPASOLINK EX-Advanced system fully meets Wave’s 10Gbps transport capacity, data capabilities, and reliability requirements,” said John Cruz, Vice President, Network Deployment, Wave Broadband. “By utilizing this platform, specifically where optical fiber is difficult to install, we will be able to continue expanding Wave’s service areas and add subscribers along the West Coast.”
“We are delighted that Wave Broadband has selected NEC’s iPASOLINK EX-Advanced system to bolster the growth of its business in Washington, Oregon, and California,” said Matt Engelmann, Vice President, NEC Corporation of America. “NEC will continue supporting Wave and its commitment to deliver excellent service and value to the West Coast.”
NEC has an accomplished history of providing highly reliable wireless transmission radio systems. NEC’s PASOLINK series features a wide variety of advanced wireless technologies cultivated under challenging environmental conditions.
