Wave Broadband plans to deploy NEC's iPASOLINK EX-Advanced fixed wireless system as part of its gigabit and multi-gigabit service expansion on the West Coast, announced earlier this month.

The iPASOLINK EX-Advanced wireless system is designed to give broadband service providers a transmission capacity equivalent to 10 Gbps optical fiber in locations where traditional fiber construction is either cost- or timeline-prohibitive. Introduced to the U.S. market in July 2016, the NEC outdoor wireless transmission products use multiple optical 10 Gbps Ethernet interfaces via licensed 80 GHz frequencies.

"NEC's iPASOLINK EX-Advanced system fully meets Wave's 10 Gbps transport capacity, data capabilities and reliability requirements," said John Cruz, vice president, network deployment, Wave Broadband. "By utilizing this platform, specifically where optical fiber is difficult to install, we will be able to continue expanding Wave's service areas and add subscribers along the West Coast."

"We are delighted that Wave Broadband has selected NEC's iPASOLINK EX-Advanced system to bolster the growth of its business in Washington, Oregon and California," said Matt Engelmann, vice president, NEC Corporation of America. "NEC will continue supporting Wave and its commitment to deliver excellent service and value to the West Coast."
