RADWIN 5000 JET PtMP with Smart Beamforming Antenna Selected by ATC Communications in U.S.
RADWIN have announced that the RADWIN 5000 JET Point-to-MultiPoint radios with smart beamforming antennas were deployed by ATC Communications – a leading service provider in Nebraska, U.S. ATC Communications is using RADWIN 5000 JET to deliver high-capacity broadband services with guaranteed SLAs to enterprise and residential customers.
John E. Koller, General Manager, ATC Communications:
In 2014 we evaluated different technologies and chose the RADWIN 5000 Point-to-MultiPoint (PtMP) radios to provide service packages of over 25 Mbps. This June we moved to RADWIN’s new platform – JET 5000 – because of its frequency re-use capability which allows us to utilize the scarce 3.65 GHz band with greater efficiency and significantly boost network capacity. Hands down, RADWIN 5000 JET technology is superior to anything we’ve ever worked with in the past. With RADWIN’s products, ATC Communications is able to meet the current and future connectivity needs of the rural homes and businesses in the communities we serve.
Don McCorkle, Information Systems Engineer, ATC Communications:
We have limited tower space but thanks to JET’s smart beamforming antennas we could co-locate the base stations less than 1 m apart, even though they use the same frequency channel. I am constantly amazed at the interference mitigation capabilities of the JET platform, which allows us to operate cleanly in extreme noise environments. Furthermore, the RADWIN 5000 JET installation was both straightforward and simple and the systems operate smoothly in challenging non-line-of-sight scenarios and harsh temperatures.
Dennis Stipati, RADWIN’s GM, North America:
We’re proud to count ATC amongst our service provider customers. We’re seeing huge traction for the RADWIN 5000 JET from both existing and new customers. The accumulated deployment experience proves that JET is a true game changer in the wireless industry, radically improving network performance – capacity, range, robustness and stability. JET’s smart beamforming technology assures immunity to 3rd party interference and self-interference, which is prevalent in wireless systems that do not use smart antennas.
