Cambridge Broadband Networks (CBNL) has has announced an agreement with global technology provider, CenturyLink, to extend the reach of the network service provider´s fibre-rich world-wide footprint and to make their robust portfolio of network services and managed solutions available to businesses across South America, the company said.
CBNL is deploying a carrier-grade, 10.5GHz, Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) network to provide last-mile connectivity for CenturyLink´s core network, serving hundreds of businesses in Peru, Argentina, Ecuador and Venezuela.
CenturyLink has one of the world´s most powerful networks with approximately 450,000 miles of fibre deployed globally and more than 150,000 fibre-enabled on-net buildings. The service provider has previously used point-to-point (PTP) fixed wireless links to bring additional customer on-net. 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.
