IPWireless Deploys 'Pre-LTE'
SAN BRUNO, Calif. -- IPWireless today announced the first deployments of its mobile broadband solution designed for both the public safety and commercial service provider frequency bands in 700MHz. Southern Georgia Regional Information Technology Authority (SGRITA) and USA Choice Internet Services Company, a provider of Internet services to the underserved economic areas in Northwest and Central Pennsylvania, are moving forward with the first deployment of the IPWireless 700MHz solution to offer mobile broadband services to both consumers and local public safety agencies. The Company has also started trials of its 700MHz solution with public safety entities leveraging the same technology that is being used in NYCWiN, the most comprehensive multi-agency wireless broadband network of its kind.
“We have been trialing IPWireless’ solution over the past few months and have been extremely impressed with the results to date,” said Dustin Springman, Director Network Operations, at SGRITA. “The pre-LTE system is based on proven hardware and software, provides the best-in-class mobility performance we require and allows us to easily roam between 2.5 GHz in more urban areas to 700MHz in the deep southern Georgia forest areas. Based on these benefits we have decided to trial the 700MHz solution for our public safety agencies as well.”
SGRITA’s network will cover 2,000 square miles and will serve the Southwest Georgia farming community including schools, residents, and government agencies in the rural 5 county area, including police, fire, and EMS public safety agencies. SGRITA is deploying their mobile broadband network in conjunction with Civitium, a consulting firm that provides business, technology and public policy services to local governments, state agencies and high-technology industry leaders.
“It’s clear that the market is leaning towards LTE as their technology of choice. IPWireless provides the performance and technology advantages our public safety and commercial constituents require, and allows us to deploy a proven pre-LTE solution today,” said Brian Fielding, President, at USA Choice.
