Commdex Awarded Major Microwave Project in Midwest U.S.
Atlanta, GA, January 30, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Commdex, a leading systems integration and engineering firm, has been contracted by Alcatel Lucent to support AT&T’s Ethernet to the cell (ETTC) deployments in the Midwest United States. Under this contract, Commdex will install and configure new microwave hops at sites across Illinois, Iowa and Minnesota. This contract represents new work for Commdex, and expands the company’s growing presence in the carrier market.
“We are very excited to continue building our relationship with Alcatel Lucent and help them serve their customers,” said VP of Sales and Engineering, Chuck Bethea. “We welcome the opportunity to provide our core microwave services for this major, multi-state deployment while advancing our presence in the dynamic carrier space.”
The large-scale migration of wireless backhaul cell sites to Ethernet should continue to be a major factor in the next five years, as carriers complete their 4G LTE deployments. Projects like this help to give Commdex the past performance required to capitalize on this trend and successfully win more business in the carrier market.
The project kicked off in the second half of 2013 and will run through at least 2014, with additional phases forthcoming through the year.
