ClearSky Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of mobile data services to regional wireless carriers, today announced the launch of its FastStart Program, designed to allow carriers with small footprint requirements to quickly and cost-effectively build an LTE network and offer fixed-wireless broadband service. The program offers a rapid start-up and simplified operations environment, and is fully upgradeable to a network that supports mobility and roaming.
ClearSky offers a comprehensive suite of LTE services that range from its License Preservation Program, designed to fulfill FCC coverage requirements, to a roaming-enabled, full-scale LTE network that supports 3G Circuit Switched Fall Back. FastStart is positioned in the middle of this array of LTE options, offering a high-performance RAN and a state-of-the-art core architecture that is ideal for launching wireless broadband service to rural markets. FastStart delivers a variety of benefits including:
- Cost-effective deployment with as few as two towers.
- Low on-going operating expenses in line with fixed wireless revenue opportunities.
- Access to value-added services such as RF planning, tower installation, as well as devices and SIM/UICC cards.
- Upgradeable to full mobility and roaming.
“All national carriers have already begun their LTE build-outs, and regional carriers need to move forward now with LTE or risk being left out of the wireless industry,” said Dean Fresonke, ClearSky Senior VP of Business Development. “We developed the FastStart Program to speed and simplify the purchasing, installation and configuration of an LTE fixed wireless network—all at a significantly reduced cost. We can provide everything from initial RF planning to end-user device fulfillment through our open ecosystem of partners. We allow you to choose only the services you need today, so you can avoid locking yourself into an arrangement that will greatly limit your future options.”
