FiberTower Provides High Capacity Ethernet Service To DSCI

SAN FRANCISCO and WALTHAM, Mass., April 28. FiberTower Corporation, a wireless backhaul services provider, has completed its interconnection to DSCI Corporation, Inc. and has begun delivering wireless Ethernet service to select DSCI enterprise accounts. The partnership will allow DSCI to strengthen its footprint by adding more connectivity options and, most importantly, expand its coverage where no high capacity was previously available.

"We are committed to supporting new customers by leveraging our fiber and fixed wireless expertise in backhaul services," said Patrick Coughlin, FiberTower's senior vice president of sales and marketing. "Targeting wholesale customers, we have actively pursed relationships with facilities-based communication providers. We are pleased to have established a master service agreement with DSCI, a leader in the space, and look forward to providing transport solutions in its other regions."

This interconnection will allow DSCI to provide its next generation services around the Boston, MA area, plus the other 12 major US markets where FiberTower has established its network. DSCI will begin delivering end-user solutions using this transport method starting in May 2010.

Rick Girardin, vice president of engineering for DSCI, said, "By providing a fixed wireless solution that meets our stringent criteria for performance and reliability, FiberTower has helped us deliver our entire product set. Now we can provide QoS-enabled VoIP, video, and MPLS, when previously we had to qualify each customer for fiber access. Each customer we deploy with FiberTower's solution has high capacity bandwidth that we can manage and by aggregating the traffic over a fiber interconnection, DSCI can gain access to the entire FiberTower coverage area."
