FCC Shutdown Stalls Licensed Microwave; Exalt Comes to the Rescue

Exalt license-exempt systems deliver carrier-grade performance, can be deployed in one day

CAMPBELL, Calif. — October 3, 2013 — Exalt Communications, Inc., the leading innovator of next-generation wireless connectivity systems for private networks and Internet infrastructures, today announced that its license-exempt microwave backhaul systems are the solution for companies trapped by the Federal Government shutdown while waiting for FCC spectrum licenses. Rather than lose valuable time-to-market revenue while waiting indefinitely for the shutdown to lift and any license applications backlog to clear, companies can deploy Exalt license-exempt microwave backhaul systems within one day.

Exalt has deployed tens of thousands of carrier-grade, license-exempt microwave backhaul systems for Tier 1 carriers, public safety agencies, enterprises, and wireless Internet service providers. Exalt systems in the 2.4 GHz, 4.5 GHz, 4.9 GHz, 5.3-5.8 GHz and 24 GHz frequency bands can deliver up to 440 Mbps per second throughput with carrier-grade reliability.

“The Federal Government shutdown can bring the building or expansion of wireless networks to a screeching halt, but business demands don’t take a holiday,” said Joe Schraml, Exalt vice president of product line management. “Companies delayed waiting for FCC licenses will not only lose time-to-market revenue, but may face additional delays restarting deployments once the government shutdown comes to an end. To move ahead with their plans now, these companies can opt for Exalt license-exempt systems that can be deployed within a day. Exalt wrote the book on license-exempt microwave, and we can immediately ship systems in indoor, outdoor, or split-mount configurations to meet our customers’ needs.”
