Friday, November 06, 2020 | Comments

Nextlink Internet selected BEC Technologies for its fixed wireless Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) deployments.

Nextlink Internet, an internet service provider serving small towns and rural communities across the central United States, adopted a standards-based CBRS system to accelerate fixed wireless access (FWA) deployments to meet the increasing demand for high-speed internet access.

"Nextlink has a strong focus on quality, support and speed for its customers. BEC clearly shares a similar passion in supporting its customers and has played an important role in the launch of our FWA 4G LTE-Advanced and 5G ready network," said Nextlink Chief Technology Officer Cameron Kilton, CTO.

Nextlink selected a combination of BEC's Outdoor CBRS routers, the 4900R21 and 6900R21. The solutions are LTE-Advanced Pro with carrier aggregation up to 3 CA DL / 2CA UL and four-by-four multiple input multiple output (MIMO) advanced antenna technology within a ruggedized IP68 enclosure. The 6900R21 specifically provides increased capacity, higher throughput and extended coverage as the industry's first high-powered LTE CAT B CPE-CBSD.

"BEC prides itself on long-term relationships with internet service providers, and we're excited to be Nextlink's partner of choice for CBRS CPE solutions," said D'Andre Ladson, BEC vice president of marketing. "As a critical component of Nextlink's service offering, we share the same vision for reliable high-speed broadband connectivity to underserved rural communities."

BEC CBRS solutions combine hardware, software and cloud-managed services with embedded spectrum access system (SAS) Domain Proxy that offer deployment flexibility, reduced complexity and lower total cost of ownership (TCO). Purpose-built for performance and reliability, the solutions are Part 96 Authorized and OnGo certified to ensure interoperability for multivendor, large-scale deployments.
