Rural telcos and Tier 2/3 service providers need affordable technology to help them deliver wireless service to customers in under-serviced or hard-to-reach areas, and the XPANDAcell RPT-9000 helps them do this
Los Angeles, CA (Vocus) October 7, 2010
Pulse Inc., the leading supplier of enabling technologies for next-generation networks, today announced that its XPANDAcell RPT-9000 Cellular Repeater received a “Best of Show” award in the Best Wireless Category at TMC’s ITEXPO West 2010 in Los Angeles.
Pulse’s XPANDAcell RPT-9000 cellular repeater technology extends the reach of cellular towers up to 95km (60 miles) without having to install a new switch. It enables cellular providers to bring service to smaller markets, or hard-to-reach areas in a cost effective manner. It also helps providers minimize dropped calls across their existing service areas, without having to install additional cell towers.
“Today, the demands placed on wireless networks are increasing exponentially – as smart phones, and iPad/tablet devices are no longer simply used to make calls - but also to access the internet, update social media applications, and send photos and video at an ever-increasing rate,” said Pulse’s Vice President and Co-founder, Michael Banschbach. “Rural telcos and Tier 2/3 service providers need affordable technology to help them deliver wireless service to customers in under-serviced or hard-to-reach areas, and the XPANDAcell RPT-9000 helps them do this.”
The RPT-9000 is transparent to the type of information carried, delivering CDMA, GSM or AMPs, to enable the transmission of voice, data or video to mobile phones. It can be utilized for business, consumers or utilities, and when compared to the cost of adding a switch, or a new cell tower, the savings are almost 80%.
