logosTelrad Networks, a global provider of TD-LTE broadband solutions, announced that ALSAT Wireless, a Missouri-based provider of rural broadband services, selected the Telrad LTE solution to deliver high-speed internet to residents and businesses in their Missouri service areas of Montgomery City and Vandalia.
Deployed in the 3.65 GHz frequency band, the network includes a comprehensive LTE solution comprising a variety of Telrad equipment. Telrad’s base stations, core network solutions, and end-user equipment allow ALSAT to take full advantage of Telrad technology, providing cost-optimized configurations, lower total cost of ownership, and higher throughput than competitive solutions. The initial LTE deployment was made in Montgomery City, and has now been expanded into Vandalia, adding high-capacity service coverage, which is particularly effective in these areas that face Non-Line-of-Sight (NLOS) issues with heavy foliage.
“The new, Telrad LTE high-speed connections are making uninterrupted access to video and data applications available to our customer base,” Commented Alan Luelf, ALSAT Wireless general manager. “The LTE network displays high-quality, low latency and system stability. We are excited to roll out into new areas next spring and continue to offer LTE Internet speeds as part of our service offering.” As part of their commitment to serving rural customers in Missouri since their inception in 2009, ALSAT Wireless offers connectivity packages that demand no contracts and no data caps.
“We are proud to add ALSAT Wireless to our LTE family,” commented Chris Daniels, Vice President and Regional GM of North America for Telrad. “We continue to expand our footprint in North America, offering a superior, cost-effective solution. Our standards-based, future-proof innovation is unmatched by anything offered in the market today. It completely changes the economics of fixed broadband wireless access for ISPs and Telco operators.”
