Virginia City Deploys Microwave System from Exalt (8/6/13)
Tuesday, August 06, 2013 | Comments

The city of Danville, Va., upgraded an aging copper network infrastructure with Exalt Communications microwave systems. The microwave network provides radio service for police, fire, public works and utility departments within the city and eliminates monthly recurring lease-line charges.

Danville is a city of 43,000 located along Virginia’s southern border. The city had long used leased copper T1 lines to carry radio traffic for its public agencies, but the copper was degrading, and the city needed another solution. By choosing all-outdoor microwave systems, the city not only reduced its monthly operating expense costs, but also now owns the network.

“We replaced the copper with microwave for higher reliability and availability, and also to bring the network in-house,” said Erik Chambers, communications systems manager for the city of Danville. “Exalt supplied the zero-footprint, all-outdoor systems that we wanted, and we have saved thousands of dollars by eliminating the cost of leased circuits in our network.”

GCS Electronics & Communications of Martinsville, Va., deployed the Exalt microwave systems.
