Extenet Systems Joins with Paladin Wireless on CBRS LTE Fixed Wireless Network

ExteNet Systems has just announced plans to deploy a CBRS Part 96 ready LTE fixed wireless network with Paladin Wireless.

ExteNet’s turnkey small cell and distributed evolved packet core (EPC) solution will allow for  fixed wireless service for Paladin Wireless over the 3.5 GHz Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) band, with the goal of delivering high-speed LTE connectivity to Paladin’s customers. The innovative solution will deliver true broadband speeds and will offer clear advantages versus legacy solutions typically available in rural communities.

“At ExteNet, our goal is to help bridge the digital divide in rural and remote communities,” said Jason Osborne, Vice President of Business Development and Strategic Initiatives for ExteNet Systems. “In partnering with Paladin Wireless, we worked to deliver a fixed wireless solution that is a preferred alternative to legacy solutions, like satellite and DSL, to support high-bandwidth applications. Paladin Wireless will have the ability to offer fast and reliable wireless connectivity to its customers in the northeastern Georgia region. In addition, this same infrastructure can support multiple use cases including mobile roaming services from the Tier 1 providers when conditions demand.”

“We chose to work with ExteNet Systems because it’s an established company that has experience deploying networks for other WISP providers in rural markets,” said Stephen Fortmann, President and Chief Executive Officer for Paladin Wireless. “With this partnership, we are addressing the need for innovative wireless solutions that connect northeastern Georgia with the global community.”

“Broadband access is often a community’s key to realizing its dreams and ambitions in the digital age,” said Congressman Doug Collins of Georgia’s 9th congressional district. “We need innovative solutions to deliver last-mile service to much of northeastern Georgia, and it’s encouraging to see companies investing in these families and businesses by providing high-speed access to the internet, which means access to opportunity.”
