TeleBarbados Deploys ARRIS 700 MHz Wireless Access Solution
Suwanee, GA: ARRIS (Nasdaq: ARRS), today announced that TeleBarbados, a dominant communication services provider on the island, has deployed the ARRIS WiDOX 700 MHz broadband access solution at multiple locations to deliver high-speed data service to its customers throughout the island.
“We are very excited to be deploying a high quality, reliable and secure high-speed internet experience for our residential customers,” said TeleBarbados CEO Brian Harvey. “Using this 700 MHz solution from ARRIS allows us to differentiate ourselves from the incumbent provider and uniquely positions TeleBarbados to easily expand our service offerings in the future.”
ARRIS WiDOX technology employs DOCSIS protocols in a wireless environment to deliver high quality data experience to customers in rural environments. The ARRIS WiDOX solution provides fixed wireless solutions from a single tower to cover large geographic areas, thus eliminating the need for high infrastructure costs in rural environments.
ARRIS has successfully deployed this technology in regions around the world since 2004, with several operators supporting as many as 20,000 subscribers per installation. The topography of Barbados lends itself well to this technology by virtue of its terrain and population density.
