ARLINGTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Federated Wireless, the leader in spectrum management software, and BLiNQ Networks (a CCI Company), a pioneer in low-cost, high-capacity LTE Wireless Access (FWA) solutions, today announced a new cooperation agreement that will allow BLiNQ to offer an integrated shared spectrum solution to Wireless ISPs and Cable Operators.
BLiNQ delivers the best cost-per-gigabit air capacity in the industry through massive MIMO technology, providing wireless solutions that are reliable and affordable. Federated Wireless leads the industry with its Spectrum Controller, which is at the heart of all of the major shared spectrum trials underway in the U.S. to date. Together, the two companies will support Wireless ISPs taking advantage of 150 MHz of new spectrum to increase rural and suburban broadband coverage with fixed wireless solutions, and Cable Operators implementing new mobile network strategies.
BLiNQ offers a robust portfolio of advanced wireless technology designed for both indoor and outdoor deployments. The BLiNQ FW 300i, FW 600 and the new strand-mountable SC 300S are multi-sector devices that deliver a superior ROI due to their carrier aggregation and innovative beamforming capabilities. The Federated Wireless Spectrum Controller is an end-to-end solution for shared spectrum access, management and optimization, helping businesses to quickly and efficiently plan, optimize and monetize CBRS services.
"We see the tremendous potential that shared spectrum holds for WISPs and MSOs to cost-effectively expand their wireless coverage,” said Patrick Buthmann, Vice President of Business Development and Product Management at BLiNQ Networks. "Through our agreement with Federated Wireless, our customers will be able to quickly deploy high-speed broadband to areas that don’t have coverage today. We also look forward to applying our mobile network expertise to cable networks, creating a new wireless model.”
“BLiNQ is an ideal partner because they share our laser focus on the CBRS market opportunity,” said Iyad Tarazi, President and CEO, Federated Wireless. “As two nimble companies working together, we’ll be able to quickly address requirements and the changing landscape as the CBRS market and path to 5G unfold over the next few years.”
