IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Future Technologies has chosen to deploy IgniteNet's MetroLinq™ PTMP platform to provide gigabit connections throughout Lincoln and Omaha, Nebraska. This project is marked as one of the first commercially deployed 60GHz PTMP fixed broadband networks in the world and highlights the great potential of this innovative platform.
"Future Technologies has chosen IgniteNet's 60GHz MetroLinq™ platform for deployment in the downtown Lincoln/Omaha metro areas to deliver high capacity connections," reports Jon Truell, CEO at Future Technologies of Nebraska. "We have seen an increasing demand for connections in excess of 100Mbps and have struggled to find a cost-effective product that could achieve this outside the increasingly noisy 5GHz spectrum. We have recently deployed several links for area businesses in the Haymarket area and for many of the Greek houses on the University of Nebraska Lincoln campus with impressive results. IgniteNet's products have finally given us a means to compete with the fiber providers in the metro area. We look forward to using their new products and to our continued relationship."
"We are very excited to work with Future Technologies to give them the right products that they need to deploy ultra-fast internet connections to their customers," said Chad Dewey, VP of Product Design at IgniteNet. "We really enjoy helping our customers usher in the next generation of internet service at fractions of the cost of other technologies."
The key to bringing gigabit internet connections to more customers is providing the right combination of cost and speed of deployment. IgniteNet's MetroLinq™ platform is the first to reach this milestone and allow operators to quickly deploy fiber-like wireless service across large areas at unprecedented price-points. Operators with fiber assets can add MetroLinq™ to their network to build hybrid fiber-wireless networks to lower costs and speed up the deployment. For operators without fiber assets, MetroLinq™ allows pure "wireless fiber" networks to be built quickly.
IgniteNet has a proven track record of producing powerful, reliable, and easy to deploy innovative cloud managed wireless solutions and the industry's lowest cost 60GHz wireless technology through channel partners worldwide focused on Enterprise and service provider customers.
