We are very excited to announce the partnership and launch of a new platform with the fastest growing telecommunications company in California – GeoLinks.Globtel and GeoLinks have successfully developed a first of its art wireless platform based on the DOCSIS 3.1 standard.
The platform is utilizing the previously untapped, license exempt frequency spectrum from 69 GHz to 71 GHz and from 81 GHz to 83 GHz.
The 70/80 GHz platform is a spinoff of Globtels flagship product series AIR GIgaray, developed specifically for GeoLinks so that it can be utilized in their planned expansion.
»We believe, that this type of solution that does not require specific spectrum license, is quick to deploy, provides gigabit connectivity to the home or office and does have enough cummulative throughput capacity on the transmission side will be very efficient in virtually any use case scenario in the US and globally« said Pavle Mikuz, VP of Sales at Globtel.
A crucial piece which powers the solution is Harmonics revolutionary, software based virtual CMTS – CableOS.
The platform is a unique wireless point to multipoint solution that is particularly suitable for areas with less developed infrastructure due to its low set up time and ability to cover a wide area. It can deliver fiber-like services without the need for major construction or long deployment times. In its 360-degree coverage configuration GIGA-AIR can achieve 14 Gbps of total throughput at a base station location and up to two Gbps per single customer.
»We searched for 3 years to find a company to be able to build the ideas we had for a radio platform. We went to many major manufacturers and developers, some said no and some failed. Ultimately Globtel said they could do it and not only did they deliver but they over achieved. On top of that the communication and dedication this this process has been something we have never seen before. This is the stuff long term exciting relationships are built upon. Globtel literally exceeded our expectations and I don’t say that trying to be sensationalist« said Skyler Ditchfield, Co-Founder and CEO of GeoLinks.
GeoLinks has the exclusive rights to market the platform in the US market and it is available for WISPs and Cable Companies where there is a lot of interest as due to the platform utilizing the DOCSIS standard an integration into a cable network is as seamless as it can be.
“The developing of the whole platform was our key r&d effort and it would not be possible with exemplary cooperation we had with GeoLinks and Harmonic in this endeavor as there were several challenges on how to ensure distance and throughput in high mmWave bands. We are excited with the possibilities that this opens for service providers in rural, urban and suburban areas in the US and elsewhere as now there is a platform that can quickly and cost efficiently expand a services operators footprint”, said Sandi Osvald, Globtel CTO.
