ROCKLAND, Maine, and MILPITAS, Calif. – Redzone Wireless, LLC, Maine's leading provider of wireless broadband services announced today that it recently completed a two-month pilot project in Rockland, Maine to field-test an innovative new broadband wireless technology developed by partner Tarana Wireless, Inc. The test results confirmed peak end-user data rates of 800 Mbps and the capability for symmetric download and upload speeds. These results were observed in both line-of-sight and harsh non-line-of-sight conditions across the community from a single tower location in Rockland, Maine.
This project demonstrated dramatically increased capacity vs. previous generations of wireless broadband technology. The Tarana platform efficiently distributes 10 Gigabits of total capacity per site — enabling up to 1,000 simultaneous connections from a single tower.
The massive performance and capacity improvements measured in Redzone's pilot project across a 25 square-mile area completely challenge previous conventional thinking about the role broadband wireless can and should play in addressing the digital divide in America.
Fixed Wireless, Finally Fixed
The Tarana G1 platform introduces a range of advanced beam- and null-forming technologies, along with industry firsts in interference cancellation, to deliver fiber-class speeds and performance in challenging non-line-of-sight conditions, even in unlicensed spectrum. G1's multi-gigabit capacity and nearly 1 Gbps peak user data rates represent 15 to 20x improvements over competing technologies, and truly unrivaled network economics at a massive scale.
Redzone network engineers and technicians conducted the broadband pilot from towers located in Rockland, Maine. Various performance metrics including received power, path loss, modulation rates, and data throughput were measured over a 60-day period from more than 50 individual end-user locations spread across an area of 25 square miles.
