CAMPBELL, Calif. -- Exalt Communications today announced that ACT Telecommunications Limited of Antigua and Barbuda (ACT) has deployed Exalt microwave backhaul systems to link key aggregation points in its WiMAX network. ACT switched to Exalt systems when older microwave radios were not able to provide the security and traffic prioritization capabilities it needs to meet the requirements of its government, and retail WiMAX and Wi-Fi customers.

As configured for ACT, the Exalt split-mount microwave backhaul systems each carry one DS-3 circuit and 100 megabits per-second (Mbps) of Ethernet traffic, and include 256-bit AES encryption to ensure the utmost network security. The security is impenetrable, and the capacity of each system is more than ample for the company's current needs, although the Exalt systems can be easily upgraded with software license keys to carry up to 200 Mbps of Ethernet traffic if necessary.

"Because we serve government agencies as well as commercial customers, we require systems that enable full 256-bit AES encryption at any speed, and the Exalt systems meet our needs perfectly," said Salomon Doumith, President and CEO of ACT. "We also wanted our new systems to be able to prioritize TDM traffic over Ethernet, and we like that the Exalt systems support both traffic types natively and prioritize TDM automatically."

In addition to their built-in encryption and traffic prioritization capabilities, the Exalt microwave backhaul systems feature five-nines reliability to maintain link performance, even during heavy downpours, and a web-based graphical user interface for easy configuration.

"Because we understand that every network has unique requirements, we offer customers more system options and unique capabilities than any other microwave backhaul manufacturer," said Amir Zoufonoun, CEO of Exalt Communications. "These include native TDM and Ethernet, a rich set of data networking features, pay-as-you-grow scalability, and optional 256-bit AES encryption that is hardware-based, so encrypting data does not affect throughput or add latency. Capabilities such as these are critical for customers like ACT, whose business spans government and commercial markets, and whose backhaul network must be as reliable as fiber."

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.
