CBNL, TPX Communications get business award for pre-5G fixed wireless

Cambridge Broadband Networks (CBNL), the market leader in point-to-multipoint (PMP) microwave and millimeter wave, and TPx Communications (TPx), the premier managed services carrier (formerly TelePacific), have been named winners of the ´Infrastructure Innovation´ category at the renowned Global Telecoms Business Innovation Awards, the companies said.

The awards honor the telecom industry´s most innovative and successful project partnerships from around the world.

By utilizing CBNL´s VectaStar solution, TPx pioneered a more efficient strategy to unlock the bandwidth of millimeter wave and pass this on to American enterprises in the form of faster and more affordable broadband services. As the first US network to utilize PMP in this way, the project has paved the way for advanced millimeter wave strategies, helping accelerate the advent of multi-gigabit 5G fixed wireless.

Established in 2000, CBNL is the market-leader in licensed point-to-multipoint (PMP) microwave and millimeter wave solutions. CBNL´s carrier-grade VectaStar platform is deployed by over 100 communications providers across the 10.5GHz and 26-39GHz bands for a range of applications, including backhaul (macro and small cell), enterprise access, smart city connectivity, broadcast and residential broadband.

TPx Communications is a new kind of managed services provider — the premier national managed services carrier. Formed from the merger of TelePacific and DSCI, TPx is redefining the way enterprises grow, compete and communicate.
