CBNL collaborates to extend its network solutions to businesses in South America

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.
