BARCELONA, Spain and VANCOUVER, Canada -- fSONA Networks, manufacturer of the highest-quality, highest-performance, free space optical wireless communications equipment on the market today and Touch, formerly MTC Touch (Mobile Interim Company 2 - MIC2/MIC 2), today announced a partnership to utilize SONAbeam 1250-M free space optical wireless links to provide mobile backhaul connectivity enabling Touch to deliver 4G LTE (long-term evolution) services to customers in Lebanon. With Phase 1 of the project underway, this newly adopted optical wireless technology is being installed throughout Beirut, Lebanon. Multiple links will continue to be deployed in the greater Beirut area over the coming year. This partnership will allow Touch to continue to lead the way with innovative, value-added services made possible by 4G LTE connectivity. SONAbeam optical wireless allows Touch to quickly move forward with modernizing the mobile network in Lebanon without the delays associated with trenching optical fiber or negotiating spectrum frequency use for microwave links. Furthermore, SONAbeam transceivers easily integrate with equipment from other mobile supplies due to their standard interfaces and compatibility with existing NMS systems. fSona Communications Corp.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
