Baicells Partners with Tohono O'odham Utility Authority to Deliver High-Speed LTE Connectivity to Residents

PR Newswire | August 25, 2023

Baicells Technologies, a leading provider of LTE and 5G cellular solutions, has partnered with the Tohono O'odham Utility Authority (TOUA) to bring access to advanced broadband connectivity and new opportunity for tribal residents. The reservation boundary is approximately 30 miles west of Tucson, Arizona and extends south along the border with Mexico, the Tohono O'odham Nation of roughly 28,000 members, is spread across a number of remote villages where bringing access to broadband has always been a major challenge. Previously relying on basic Wi-Fi connectivity, in limited locations and with top Mbps speeds only in the single digits, the TOUA long recognized the need to overhaul and upgrade their infrastructure and so built out their network plan. In their mission to bring digital equity they secured funding from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, Reconnect Program, and NTIA. This funding led to the build out of an advanced LTE network across their tribal lands using wireless network infrastructure, CPE, and support from Baicells. Since the project's inception in 2020, the tribe has successfully deployed a dual-band private 4G LTE network, comprising of approximately 50 base stations and looking to serve an estimated 3,000 homes across the Tohono O'odham Nation. The private network utilizes the 2.5 GHz spectrum in LTE Band 41 and continues to add capacity across the reservation using CBRS in Band 48. Given the remote desert landscape and the significant size of the area, as the tribal lands are roughly the size of Connecticut, and the wide population distribution, wireless was a highly effective approach to get residents connected. A network that could still offer high performance and be rolled out quickly to help get residents online. Baicells high-power LTE radios with extended range and favorable economics have successfully overcome these environmental challenges, delivering reliable broadband connectivity to large portions of the community. It is the intention that the wireless network can eventually reach every household. The Baicells LTE radios are installed on towers, ensuring that residents are covered and can get connected. The current infrastructure, on air since 2021, delivers 4G LTE services, with plans to transition to 5G to accommodate the growing demand for capacity and performance. Additional activities for new network functionality and use cases like serving their other utility infrastructure, and even offering mobility, are also in review. "Understanding our remote location and lack of service by any existing carriers, we knew it was up to us to address this issue of broadband access; we have experience and a track record of solving these types of challenges for our communities. And a private network that we can manage on our own was a great fit since we are very accustomed to operating our own infrastructure. We already do this for other key utilities like electricity and water and in today's age, internet access is just another utility." According to Kristan Johnson, the operations manager for the Tohono O'odham Utility Authority who planned, deployed, and operate the network. With lightning-fast speeds now the norm, the Tohono O'odham Nation can utilize modern applications like video streaming and have an ability to view volumes of content like never before. The performance upgrade to connectivity has made video chats a real option now, bringing access to essential services and new opportunities to more residents across to the community. In practice, this has since eliminated the need for long and slow commutes previously required to make routine visits and makes connecting with family on a regular basis much easier. By leveraging a private LTE network, the Tohono community maintains sovereignty over its network infrastructure, offering a reliable and secure solution tailor made and dedicated to their community. "The primary objective of this initiative is to enhance communications and access to content and educational services, with the high-speed connectivity provided by this network," said Minchul Ho, CEO Americas at Baicells. "Baicells core mission is empowering unserved communities and bridging the digital divide with affordable solutions. The success of the partnership with the TOUA showcases the company's dedication and commitment to this mission." Baicells will be exhibiting and speaking at the upcoming NTTA event in Phoenix August 28-30 and the annual TribalNet Conference September 18-21 in San Diego. To learn more stop by their booth at one of these tribal events. About Baicells Baicells is a global technology company offering turnkey 4G and 5G Network Solutions, providing new economic models for service providers, enterprises, and communities. With commercial deployments in over 60 countries, offices on five continents, and an impressive engineering portfolio of 500 patents, Baicells has established itself as a technology leader. Baicells currently operates more than 700 private LTE deployments worldwide, including a significant presence across North America. Baicells innovations aim to connect the unconnected.

Gogo Provides Update on 5G Launch

prnewswire | August 01, 2023

Gogo Business Aviation (NASDAQ: GOGO) today announced a delay in its Gogo 5G system launch, due to a design error in a non-5G component of its chip, which was designed by a third-party subcontractor of its 5G solution provider. "We are disappointed in this delay, but remain confident that Gogo 5G will deliver better performance and better value than competitive ATG or GEO satellite solutions," said Sergio Aguirre, Gogo's president and chief operating officer. Gogo is collaborating with its suppliers on more definitive plans, but expects to deliver Gogo 5G in approximately mid-year 2024, and in keeping with its culture of transparency with customers and partners, will provide periodic updates as warranted. Gogo has already achieved significant milestones in the launch of Gogo 5G, including the launch of the Gogo 5G antenna and the 150-site ground-based network in the United States and Canada. Gogo continues to take 5G orders and is making headway with major OEMs to make 5G a line-fit option. Additionally, customers can pre-provision today with 5G antennas and harnesses, which will allow operators to quickly install the 5G box once the chip is available. Gogo 5G is expected to provide ~25 Mbps on average, with peak speeds in the 75-80 Mbps range, outperforming any competitive geosynchronous (GEO) satellite or air-to-ground (ATG) solution. It has been designed with the goal of delivering high throughput with very low latency, addressing the increased demand in data-heavy services and applications in use today, such as video conferencing, cloud computing and social media, as well as emerging technologies in the future. Despite the delay, Gogo remains confident in its ability to bring to market the first 5G network exclusively for business aviation. Gogo's suppliers have so far successfully conducted extensive testing of the 5G components of the chip, and the design error is not in the 5G block of the chip. Gogo expects the project to remain on budget, but that the delay is anticipated to reduce 2023 revenue by approximately $7 million and defer approximately $13 million in operating and capital expense from 2023 into 2024. Gogo plans to share more details during its second quarter 2023 earnings call on August 7, 2023. About Gogo Gogo is the world's largest provider of broadband connectivity services for the business aviation market. We offer a customizable suite of smart cabin systems for highly integrated connectivity, inflight entertainment and voice solutions. Gogo's products and services are installed on thousands of business aircraft of all sizes and mission types from turboprops to the largest global jets, and are utilized by the largest fractional ownership operators, charter operators, corporate flight departments and individuals.
