Leading wireless test solutions provider, LitePoint, recently announced its 5G test solutions have been fully validated by Qualcomm Technologies, Inc in the Qualcomm® Development Acceleration Resource Toolkit (QDART), for verifying and tuning Qualcomm’s products using its FSMTM 100 5g RAN platform, which helps address mmWave and Sub 6GHz small cell and remote radio head products.

Qualcomm’s FSM 5G RAN Platform offers reliability and high performance while meeting challenging cost, size and power requirements for outdoor as well as indoor requirements, this makes it the leading solution for small cells.  

The IQxstream-5G and IQgig-5G products from LitePoint provide extensive non-signaling small cell test coverage for 5G FR1 and 5G FR2 technologies for Qualcomm’s FSM100 5G RAN platform. These technologies enable a thorough testing environment that keeps pace with the progression of small cell research and development from R&D to manufacturing.

Small cells are increasing 5G cellular coverage and capacity in densely populated metropolitan areas and private enterprise networks because of their cutting-edge capabilities and variety of use cases. Due to the increased demand, small cell testing will have to keep up with the expanding 5G network deployments.

John Lukez, Vice President of Applications Engineering at LitePoint, said, “5G small cell infrastructure promises to lower the cost of 5G deployments, and in turn brings 5G to billions of more users. LitePoint 5G small cell test solutions allow test costs to be minimized while ensuring the rigorous radio performance required for 5G infrastructure.” He further added, “We are pleased to work with Qualcomm Technologies to realize this promise and bring greater value to global customers developing 5G small cell products.” (Source: GlobeNewswire)

EnerTribe and Tarana Partner to Quickly Expand High-Speed Internet Access in Tribal Communities

businesswire | April 03, 2023

EnerTribe, a Native American and woman-owned consulting firm specializing in telecommunications and infrastructure projects, and Tarana, manufacturer of the Gigabit 1 (G1) broadband platform, the first of its kind in next-generation fixed wireless access (ngFWA), today announced their partnership to enable the rapid deployment of reliable, high-speed internet in tribal communities across the United States. EnerTribe serves as a resource for operators, value added resellers, and other organizations that provide essential services to tribal residents, governments, and enterprises. Their partnership with Tarana aims to provide their customers with tribal-focused go-to-market initiatives to deliver high-speed wireless broadband to indigenous communities throughout the country. Over the past 14 years, EnerTribe has successfully helped fund and manage over $450 million in similar projects, securing funding from dozens of state and federal agencies to improve infrastructure and services in tribal lands. Tarana is the inventor of ngFWA, a groundbreaking technology category developed for fixed broadband that provides reliable, fiber-class internet service with network deployment times measured in weeks, as opposed to the years it takes to implement pure-fiber projects. Tarana’s G1 platform, which was launched commercially in late 2021, is currently in use in over 210 active operator networks across 19 countries. EnerTribe selected G1 for its performance in challenging radio environments. Traditional fixed wireless solutions only work in line-of-sight (LoS) scenarios — failing if there are trees or buildings blocking the wireless connection — and are heavily influenced by spectrum availability. Backed by ngFWA technology, Tarana G1 works in both near- and non-line-of-sight (nLoS and NLoS) scenarios and in high-interference, unlicensed spectrum. These two industry-firsts set ngFWA apart from legacy fixed wireless and will allow EnerTribe to provide unprecedented service levels to their customers. With G1, EnerTribe will assist the Round Valley Indian Tribes (RVIT) in deploying wireless infrastructure to provide improved broadband capacity and coverage in Covelo Valley, California. This upgraded internet connectivity will be crucial to the RVIT’s local health clinic and its many telehealth patients, as well as hundreds of residents. EnerTribe will also manage the engineering, procurement, and installation of Tarana G1 equipment for up to 200 other customers in the area. Forest James, EnerTribe CEO, shared, “We are excited about our partnership and go-to-market strategy with Tarana. As a tribal member myself, I see the dramatic, positive impact that reliable broadband can have for the entire community, whether that is remote work, telehealth, education, or internet connectivity in general. The Tarana G1 product will enable EnerTribe to bring reliable, high-speed internet to the tribal communities that need it so crucially.” Tarana President, Dirk Gates, added, “We are thrilled to be partnering with EnerTribe on such significant projects. EnerTribe’s focus on providing broadband and other essential infrastructure to indigenous communities is well-aligned with our mission to enable connectivity in un- and under-served regions. We are excited about the prospects for our partnership, which will expand quality internet access to the Round Valley Indian Tribes and beyond.” About Tarana Tarana’s mission is to accelerate the deployment of fast, affordable internet access around the world. Through a decade of R&D and more than $400M of investment, the Tarana team has created a unique next-generation fixed wireless access (ngFWA) technology instantiated in its first commercial platform, Gigabit 1 (G1). It delivers a game-changing advance in broadband economics in both mainstream and underserved markets, using either licensed or unlicensed spectrum. G1 started production in mid-2021 and has been embraced by more than 200 service providers globally. Tarana is headquartered in Milpitas, California, with additional research and development in Pune, India.

globenewswire | April 06, 2023

High Wire Networks, Inc., a leading global provider of managed cybersecurity and technology enablement, was awarded a $5.3 million mobile Wi-Fi access refresh project for a nationwide retail store chain. The win was secured through one of High Wire’s premier global channel partners. As one of the world’s largest technology resellers and integrators, the partner has now secured more than $35 million in projects for High Wire over the past several years under High Wire’s innovative channel program that now spans more 600 partners worldwide. High Wire will roll out the wireless technology refresh to more than 2,000 retail store locations across the U.S. It will upgrade every store’s Wi-Fi technology to the latest, most secure wireless networking systems. The new wireless infrastructure will enable the retailer to execute on a digital transformation strategy designed to enhance the in-store customer experience. Initial deployments are already underway at multiple stores locations, with the project planned for completion by the end of November. “After securing more than $18 million in similar multi-site deployments last year, this latest major win highlights how our channel partners increasingly rely on us to deliver such multi-site technology for their high-profile clients,” stated High Wire CEO, Mark Porter. “It also demonstrates the significant growth in demand for next-generation Wi-Fi technology by retailers who are looking to deploy new in-store shopping technology that can drive greater sales. In-store Wi-Fi technology is effectively becoming new profit center for major retailers.” “Now with more consumers returning to in-store shopping post-Covid, and supply chains able to supply this technology without delays, system integrators and technology enablers like High Wire and our channel partners are becoming one of the greatest beneficiaries of this growing trend,” added Porter. “A growing wave of planned upgrades is reflected in our record backlog and expanding sales pipeline.” High Wire wireless deployment capabilities include predictive surveys and network cabling solutions which leverage its extensive network of field technicians and engineers. High Wire will also provide project and logistics management for its channel partner through the company’s Chicago-based global command center. According to High Wire EVP Don Schmidt: “High Wire has developed a cost effective, highly efficient operational delivery model for these multi-site projects that place our partners in a confident and trusted position with their clients. Our success is a direct result of our partners’ success, and with our proprietary ‘continuous improvement’ methodology, we believe we will continue to be seen as a global leader for such multi-site technology deployments.” This new wireless technology upgrade win follows a similar engagement for a multi-site, multi-tech rollout announced last fall that expanded from $5 million to a $12 million project. Together with the other high growth segments of the company’s business, such as its Overwatch managed cybersecurity services, these projects support High Wire’s recently announced pro forma revenue growth outlook of 59% to 74% in 2023, reaching $43 million to $47 million, with this driving positive operating income and cash flow.
