Cambium Networks, a global provider of wireless networking solutions, will power efforts to deliver affordable wireless broadband access in Arkansas and bridge the digital divide.
Cambium will provide licensed microwave backhaul and fixed wireless access systems to Aristotle Unified Communications to deliver up to 100 Mbps wireless broadband internet access to several underserved regions in the state at a fraction of the time of laying fiber. The project is critical to improving the state’s bottom-10 ranking in internet connectivity.
Aristotle, which recently secured $30.9 million in CARES Act funding through the Arkansas Rural Connect program, deployed Cambium Networks’ PTP 850 licensed microwave backhaul and PMP450m point-to-multipoint access systems to expand access to residents, businesses, and schools across nine counties in the Arkansas Delta.
The company is managing the network with Cambium Networks’ cnMaestro cloud-based management system. This deployment will deliver affordable internet access to several rural areas in Arkansas that previously lacked broadband access and have been historically overlooked by large broadband providers.
Cambium Networks’ full wireless fabric portfolio of solutions are available through its global network of partners.
