RADWIN, the global wireless broadband provider, has announced that High Desert Internet Services – Northern Nevada’s High Speed Wireless Internet Service Provider – is massively deploying RADWIN’s JET Beamforming base stations in its network along with hundreds of PRO and AIR subscriber units to serve both residential customers and businesses such as warehousing and manufacturing plants.
ISP ‘High Desert’ is in the process of migrating its customer base from WiMAX and under-performing legacy wireless equipment to RADWIN’s solutions.
Doug Dawson, President of High Desert Internet Services explained why he chose RADWIN JET Beamforming PtMP: “We reached a point with our WiMAX network where we simply couldn’t meet the demand for bandwidth from customers. We tested the JET product for close to 6 months because some of our mountaintop towers get 120-150 mph winds and we wanted to make sure RADWIN’s equipment would stay on towers, plus we have long-distance connections of 8 to 10 miles and we wanted to see the capacity we could achieve.”
Concluded Dawson: “Before we used RADWIN we had cheaper radios in our network and it was constant truck rolls which hurt our bottom line and hindered network rollout. With RADWIN’s Beamforming wireless equipment you get what you pay for. JET is a high quality product and there are zero truck rolls. Our key objectives are reliability and performance and with JET we’re delivering 25-30 Mbps to residential customers and 100 Mbps services to commercial enterprises and can compete with cable companies in the area. Most importantly, subscribers on our RADWIN network are extremely happy and we reduced turnover substantially. Word of mouth is our biggest sales force and each month we’re getting more and more customers referred to us. We’re deploying JET like crazy and adding new customers every day.”
Dennis Stipati, RADWIN GM N. America: “This latest project with ISP ‘High Desert Internet Services’ proves that service providers whose mission is to deliver high-capacity service to their customers select RADWIN JET. When you buy carrier-grade equipment there are far fewer truck rolls and you’re positioned well to compete with local cable companies and other ISPs. In addition, churn is eliminated and valued customers recommend you to their neighbors and friends. We’re proud to be the leading choice of discerning ISPs and will continue to deliver excellent products to the ISP market.”
