ELK GROVE VILLAGE, Ill. -- ISCO International, LLC, a leading provider of flexible spectrum conditioning solutions for wireless service providers, today announced that Shenandoah Telecommunications Company (Shentel) has successfully implemented ISCO's Proteus spectrum conditioning equipment in order to increase capacity, improve performance and provide a superior customer experience from Shentel's PCS network.

The implementation of Proteus spectrum conditioning is part of a comprehensive effort by Shentel to increase capacity, expand coverage and enhance the quality of its 3G wireless network. Shentel provides network coverage along the highway I-81 corridor from Harrisonburg, Va. to Harrisburg, York and Altoona, Pa

"It is very important for us to ensure that Shentel's customers enjoy an exceptional network experience, free from the many types of interference that negatively affect the performance of the RF link and their cell phone service," said Dexter Torculas, Director of Wireless Engineering for Shentel. "The Proteus digital signal processing technology from ISCO helps us to achieve our performance goals."

"Spectrum has always been a scarce commodity and now with mobile data traffic beginning to overwhelm the network, wireless service providers need to do everything possible to protect that valuable resource and squeeze all available capacity from it," said Gordon Reichard, CEO of ISCO Intl. "We help carriers maximize spectrum utilization via a process known as spectrum conditioning -- which means applying digital signal processing to deliver an RF signal clear of a variety of interferers, recover otherwise lost capacity, and possibly add capacity by enabling additional channels in the frequency band."

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.
