Overview

Rise Broadband, the nation’s largest fixed wireless broadband provider, has been named “Telecom Service Provider of the Year” at the Fierce Innovation Awards, has been recognized for its innovation and acumen in closing the information gap by providing high-speed internet and digital phone service in rural and suburban areas, often under-served by traditional wireline and cable carriers.

Challenge

The customer was looking for a solution to reduce the rack space and to put order in the requirements of the site. With legacy power equipment many devices required their own individual power supplies. Other legacy power equipment supports only a specific vendor. This was not sustainable from a power, space, and management perspective.
Moreover power emerging equipment requires direct DC power and many devices did not support that.

3 years ago I remember visiting one of our sites for the first time. I was surprised to see a whole rack of individual power supplies each connected to a specific device. I thought to myself “there has to be a better way to do this!” Unfortunately, this set up is all too common throughout our company. Dialing in on Cambium devices specifically, there is little in the way of a unified power system for all products.

Solution

A modular products combination of GigaSync + NCore + NCore-Lite, to select 12 or 29 or other kind of voltage and obtain a more streamlined power system with less points of failure.

Results

GigaSync allowed customer to avoid a costly cabinet upgrade by reducing the rack space requirements of the site significantly. This reduced overall capital spending, avoided a lengthy night cutover to a new cabinet, and allowed to harvest legacy equipment.

The GigaSync has been the perfect solution for both of these problems:

1.Individual power supplies and CMMs can be replaced with a single GigaSync that offers a single POE injector solution for all kinds of devices.
2.GigaSync is extremely flexible and modular by nature and can be used to support both small and large deployments with ease.
