Arcwave Signs Cable Deals for Asia-Pacific

Caspian Technology Pty Ltd. will distribute Arcwave Inc.'s broadband wireless extension technology to cable operators in Australia and New Zealand, under a deal announced earlier this week. Specifically, the pact will allow Caspian to sell Arcwave's ARCXtendT fixed wireless DOCSIS bridge solution to Asia-Pacific cable systems. Caspian will also maintain a local repair center in the region. The ARCXtend wireless plant extension consists of a network hub mounted on a cable strand, building or tower and a transceiver/antenna that connects to a standard cable modem. The solution is designed to serve small and medium-sized businesses, which number more than 1 million in Australia and New Zealand.
