Cambridge Broadband Networks to Provide High-Capacity Enterprise Access for QSC
By Raju Shanbhag
Cambridge Broadband Networks (News - Alert) (CBNL) has announced that the company, along with NEC, has been selected by QSC to offer high-speed wireless Internet access to its enterprise customers. QSC will be using CBNL’s VectaStar multipoint microwave equipment for this purpose.
Exceeding today’s data demands and offering a wealth of benefits to network operators, VectaStar Gigabit is a point to multipoint microwave wireless backhaul and access solution.
Proven to enhance capacity and efficiency, whilst being low cost and quick to deploy, its unique blend of features offers a competitive mobile wireless backhaul and access solution for high capacity dense urban networks.
To aggregate data over the air and to dynamically handle peaks in data traffic, VectaStar makes use of available spectrum. It also allows users to maintain a consistent quality of service. The unique system architecture needs approximately half the radios of conventional point-to-point microwave and also efficiently uses the available spectrum.
This new partnership will allow QSC to be quickly and affordably installed and upgraded to meet new customer requirements, the company has stated.
“QSC has set about upgrading its existing enterprise access infrastructure and required a high-capacity solution that would provide the flexibility needed to quickly provision connectivity in city and urban environments to offer their competitive business solutions. VectaStar's multipoint microwave architecture is ideally suited to this task, enabling QSC to provision links and services in a matter of hours as opposed to days," commented Peter Norton, Global Account VP at Cambridge Broadband Networks.
Recently, the company partnered with O2 to backhaul that operator’s first public small cell Wi-Fi network in London. Providing cost and efficiency benefits, particularly for next generation mobile, the VectaStar multipoint microwave backhaul technology from Cambridge Broadband Networks allows O2 (News - Alert) to backhaul mobile traffic from multiple small cell networks to a single aggregation point. VectaStar will use the available 28 GHz spectrum band.
