Exalt Wins Desert Deal
CAMPBELL, Calif. -- Exalt Communications today announced that Arizona Nevada Tower Corporation (ANTC), an ISP and network service provider headquartered in Las Vegas, has deployed Exalt microwave backhaul systems to expand its operations by providing carrier grade backhaul service and wireless broadband Internet access to select rural communities in the Southwest. The company currently uses Exalt licensed and license-exempt systems in its network from Pahrump in south Nevada to Hawthorne in the north. Ultimately, ANTC will deploy additional Exalt systems to extend its network from Reno to Las Vegas, adding capacity as it subscriber base grows.
ANTC leases backhaul capacity to mobile operators expanding coverage or adding capacity to their existing networks and, through its subsidiaries WestNet Nevada and Atomsplash, sells broadband Internet services to individual subscribers.
"We are building a carrier-grade backbone, and Exalt offers outstanding reliability and far greater flexibility than other microwave systems providers," said Kevin Hayes, vice president of Arizona Nevada Tower Corporation. "Exalt's unique ability to aggregate capacity from 5 and 6 GHz systems on the same link was the real difference-maker for us. We started with just one link, but now Exalt systems are ubiquitous throughout our network, and we have specified Exalt systems for a new project that will connect a total of 28 sites establishing broadband access throughout central Nevada."
