Resound Networks and Globtel Holding Successfully Perform Fixed Wireless Access Test With 1 Gbps Downlink And 500 Mbps Uplink Throughput at 7 Miles

Globtel Holding | June 30, 2022

Resound Networks and Globtel Holding announced the results of testing in the fixed wireless gigabit tier. Globtel`s flagship product AIR Gigaray 70E achieved the RDOF gigabit throughput milestone at 7 miles utilizing unlicensed and license-exempt spectrum. The achieved distances are arguably the furthest at which any fixed wireless technology has met the FCC gigabit tier requirements. AIR Gigaray 70E supports up to 10 Gbps downlink capacity per one 90-degree sector and can serve several hundred subscribers at a single base station location with 360-degree coverage. Capacities like these provide the tools needed for WISPs to successfully compete with fiber providers. "The performance of the technology in the field was extraordinary and exceeded our expectations. Globtel`s AIR Gigaray will help us in our commitment to expand our gigabit network throughout rural America and will easily fulfill our RDOF obligations as we plan to use Globtel`s technology in our RDOF build-out." Resound's CEO, Tyson Curtis "We are excited to partner with Resound Networks, one of the pioneering wireless internet service providers. Globtel Holding is focused on supporting WISPs in providing state-of-the-art technology easily achieving gigabit speeds at significant distances which enables WISPs to comfortably compete with fiber in terms of service quality but at a much lower cost. Additionally, as FWA buildouts are faster, customers will get their service quicker while the ROI period for the service provider begins almost immediately," added Pavle Mikuz, VP of Sales at Globtel Holding. About Resound Networks Resound Networks was founded in 2015 as a rural-focused ISP determined to close the digital divide. The company is based in Pampa, Texas, and its carrier-class network provides coverage to over 400,000 homes throughout Texas, Oklahoma, and New Mexico. Resound plans to expand its network coverage to multiple neighboring states beginning in 2022, funded in part by the $311M awarded to the company in the FCC's Rural Digital Opportunity Fund auction. About Globtel Globtel Holding enables Cable companies, WISPs and Fiber based companies to deliver high speed broadband and services related to it like IPTV, DVB, VoIP via fixed wireless access. Globtel has developed a revolutionary fixed wireless access platform based on the DOCSIS standard which allows operators to provide triple-play services and gigabit access to residential and enterprise users in a flexible and efficient manner at a fraction of the time it would take to deploy a wired network and as such monetize the network virtually immediately.

BackBox | August 03, 2022

BackBox, a leading provider in network automation, security and management, announced the general availability of the latest version of the Backbox Automation Platform. This latest version adds cloud-based SaaS features to a platform with a largely on-premises footprint, giving customers the best of both worlds, and includes new capabilities that improve user experience, accelerate time-to-value, and deliver insights into usage and automation performance. BackBox’s product release delivers greater scalability and faster onboarding for both managed service providers (MSPs) and managed security service providers (MSSPs), as well as enterprise customers. The release expands capabilities for network inventory, and adds cloud-based telemetry reporting based on system performance and inventory data into an easy-to-use executive dashboard. “Organizations around the globe rely on BackBox’s network automation solutions, including some of the largest MSPs and MSSPs in the world, We are aiming to change the way network automation tools are used to enhance network security, performance, and compliance. While many of our enterprise customers require an on-premises solution for network automation, especially when managing secure, closed, and OT networks, many other customers require a distributed approach to best manage their multi-cloud environments. This has been especially evident as we’ve worked to partner with our MSP, MSSP, and cloud-first customers. With this product release, we can better support our on-premises customers and offer new capabilities for customers managing hybrid environments.” Andrew Kahl, CEO of BackBox The new hybrid SaaS model of the BackBox platform allows for new features like the executive dashboard.

The dashboard will help both customers and MSP/MSSP partners better validate and justify their work while identifying common and recurring issues, and strategies for overcoming them. "This latest release and the upcoming releases we have scheduled for later this year are focused around improving capabilities of the product for MSPs and enterprise customers with a need to automate network security posture improvements,” said Craig McDonald, Head of Product at BackBox. “We are also continuing to enhance our product capabilities around network inventory and cyber asset attack surface management (CAASM), as these have been key areas of interest amongst our customers. This latest release both advances our capabilities in these areas and positions us for rapid expansion of these capabilities throughout the remainder of the year and beyond.” “One new capability we are particularly proud of is a greenfield provisioning tool for MSPs. We’ve worked with some of our largest MSP/MSSP customers to develop a new tool to accelerate their deployment and onboarding of client firewalls and other network infrastructure gear. This latest release of our automation platform includes several key capabilities required to connect the platform to the provisioning tool in the ways our customers want to use them,” said McDonald.

The platform currently supports thousands of different physical and virtual device types from over 180 different vendors including Cisco, Fortinet, Palo Alto, f5, Juniper Networks, and Check Point.
