Achieving Largest Installed Base of Telrad Sites in North America
Telrad Networks, a global provider of innovative LTE telecom solutions, today announced that one of the nation’s leading full-service wireless broadband solution providers, PCS Technologies, has achieved a significant milestone in its growth – attaining the largest installed base of Telrad sites in North America.
Over the past 90 days, PCS has signed 20 new agreements to provide Telrad’s 4G/LTE solutions to new and existing customers, independent telecom operators and Internet Service Providers. The product suite enables dramatic improvements in network performance and connectivity, as well as a smooth migration path from WiMAX to LTE based on a unique Software Defined Radio (SDR) solution. Telrad’s dual mode capabilities help PCS’s customers maximize their return on investment while building cost-effective broadband networks – often without the need for an expensive, time-consuming and service-interrupting hardware replacement.
John Feldman, Vice President and General Manager at PCS Technologies, said, “Once we fully understood Telrad’s latest product offerings, we were on a mission to accelerate demand. More than any other time since our start twenty years ago, the broadband industry has truly come of age, affording the opportunity to bring ground-breaking results to our clients. Telrad stands to revolutionize the fixed wireless market, and we’re going to play an important role in that.”
In areas of deployment where Non-Line-of-Sight (NLOS) issues are common, such as Ocala, Florida (BridgeNet Wireless), Charles City, Iowa, (Unggoy Broadband) and Southwestern Minnesota (MVTV Broadband), Telrad’s LTE BreezeCOMPACT is ideal due to its advanced antenna features. It is the first LTE-capable SDR product operating in the 3.65 GHz frequency band in the U.S. and Canada.
“As a long-standing partner in our industry, the team at PCS shares our vision for the future. Their reputation, experience and engineering resources are unmatched in the industry,” said Chris Daniels, General Manager of North America for Telrad. “Working with PCS, we will help established WiMAX customers migrate their network to LTE, or new customers start with LTE from the ground up.”
