Airborne Wireless Network (OTC QB: ABWN) has entered into an agreement with Electric Lightwave Holdings, Inc., creating a mutually beneficial relationship in which the ground segment of Infinitus Super Highway will be supported by Electric Lightwave´s 12,500-mile fiber optics cable and data center network, which is located throughout the Western United States, including an undersea cable link to the Hawaiian Islands.
The company said the deal provides access to strategic properties on which the company may construct ground stations.
Airborne Wireless Network intends to create a high-speed broadband airborne wireless network by linking commercial aircraft in flight. Each aircraft participating in the network will act as an airborne repeater or router sending and receiving broadband signals from one aircraft to the next creating a digital superhighway in the sky.
Currently, the world´s connectivity is achieved by use of undersea cables, ground based fiber and satellites. Airborne Wireless Network believes that Airborne Wireless Network´s airborne digital highway is the logical solution to fill the world´s connectivity void.
Electric Lightwave provides regional fiber-based network services in the western United States. It provides critical data networking solutions, unified communications platforms, and cloud and security services to enterprises, governments and wholesale carriers. Headquartered in Vancouver, Washington, the company offers a fiber optic network that includes more than 8,000 miles of long haul fiber, 4,000 miles of metro fiber and high bandwidth access with up to 200 Gbps connections.
