Alpha Wireless teams up with major California provider
Cal.net, a top 100 provider in the US, is introducing the Alpha Wireless panel antenna – AW3161-M-F CBRS solution – as it looks to improve service for its 538,000 users in Northern California.
“Alpha Wireless is known for its innovation, and with a host of first-to-market successful products, the company was a great fit for us as we set out on our first deployments of CBRS technology in the US,” Cal.net Director of Operations Nick Sekulich says.
“Its long-standing, proven expertise in 3.5GHz and CBRS solutions was also a big draw card. We want to ensure our customers are getting the best possible coverage solutions and Alpha Wireless has consistently proven itself as a trusted partner in this space.”
With a very limited number of macro and panel antennas available in the market place to support 3.5GHz bands, the AW3161-M-F offers unique and powerful benefits.
This four-port, 65° beamwidth panel antenna has greater than 20 dB upper side-lobe suppression. It supports variable electrical tilt T0-T10 to optimise radiation patterns across the tilt range – minimising interference, significantly improving overall network performance, and enhancing network reliability.
Its discreet, ultra-slim design is available in various colours and is an ideal solution for fixed wireless broadband.
Alpha Wireless CEO Fergal Lawlor says he is excited to be working with Cal.net, and to have the opportunity to demonstrate just how valuable Alpha Wireless is as a global leader in CBRS.
“We have over a decade’s experience in the 3.5GHz spectrum, and an outstanding product portfolio of solutions for CBRS applications. Working with Cal.net is another chance for us to showcase that expertise and help to bring high-speed internet to a huge number of people in rural and underserved regions in Northern California,” he said.
