CBNL is replacing this PTP architecture, which is expensive to scale and maintain, with its powerful and cost-effective point-to-multipoint (PMP) FWA infrastructure using high-capacity millimetre wave (mmWave) spectrum.
Cambridge Broadband Networks (CBNL) is the market provider of millimetre wave Fixed Wireless Access solutions.
The partnership among Windstream, CBNL and Straight Path is the latest example of Windstream investing in its advanced metro fiber and fixed wireless networks, and it also represents the first nationwide deployment of CBNLs new 39GHz solution, which has the ability to scale hub site capacities to 13.2 Gbps.
Windstream will deploy CBNLs VectaStar 39GHz licensed PMP radios and utilize Straight Paths 39GHz spectrum to rapidly expand its last-mile customer connectivity options in key markets.
CBNL will also work with MTN Nigeria to provide programme management, deployment and support services.
Nigel Webb, VP, Sub-Saharan Africa, CBNL, added: "The Nigeria upgrade requires both product expertise and local knowledge to ensure effective transition, with minimal downtime and disruption to MTN's customers."
Established in 2000, CBNL
is the market-leader in licensed point-to-multipoint (PMP) microwave and millimeter wave solutions.
He said that connecting the islands throughout the archipelago via fiber optic cables is a challenge and that is where CBNL s expertise in telecommunications technology comes in.
CBNL is in advanced level of discussions with telecommunications giants Philippine Long-Distance Telephone Company (PLDT) and Globe Telecom (Globe) and expects to introduce joint ventures in the next 45 months or so.
In addition to backhauling cell sites throughout the country, CBNL will be working in partnership with MTN to provide programme management, deployment and support services to ensure delivery of the upgrade.
