JET Boosts Network Throughput in Tonawanda, New York

November 30, 2016


RADWIN, the global broadband wireless provider, today announced that the Tonawanda Municipality in New York, U.S., deployed RADWIN’s JET ultra-capacity wireless broadband to replace its legacy network. The JET point-to-multipoint Beamforming systems connect multiple municipality buildings and remote sites such as highway facilities and water treatment plants across town. Transwave Communications Systems, a leading system integrator, was responsible for the network design and implementation.


Michael Kaiser, Director of Technical Support, Tonawanda Municipality: “We sought to replace our aged network because it didn’t support our bandwidth requirements. RADWIN’s JET radios were the best solution for our needs, providing the high throughput needed to support critical applications including high-speed data, voice and video connectivity between remote sites and SCADA network operations. Bottom line, with RADWIN’s JET-powered network, we’ve improved the municipality’s overall operational efficiency, reduced leased line costs and slashed OpEx.”


David Bassanello, Sales Manager, Transwave: “We recommended JET for this project based on our previous experience deploying RADWIN’s equipment, both as an integrator and WISP service provider. This project posed major challenges since the remote sites are spread out and there is a high RF noise floor given the large suburban environment. That’s where the interference avoidance of JET’s Beamforming made this product extremely attractive, and furthermore, we knew the previous design was still god given that the town has access to a large tower facility that strategically overlooks the entire municipality. We upgraded the entire aged radio infrastructure with the new JET platform, enabling the municipality to leverage their investment for many years to come.”


Dennis Stipati, GM RADWIN North America: “JET Beamforming PtMP is the product of choice for municipalities worldwide, enabling them to rapidly extend connectivity to areas where fiber installation costs are prohibitive or where no rights-of-way exist. JET wireless systems enable governments to run crucial high-speed voice, video and data services and realize dramatic cost savings.”
