ALTIUS Communications Turnkeys Microwave
Project for Caroline County, MD

ALTIUS Communications is pleased to announce that it was awarded a turnkey licensed microwave project by Caroline County, MD. ALTIUS successfully completed construction of the licensed back haul network in early April 2011 using equipment provided by Ceragon Networks.

Caroline County's High-Speed Network delivers reliable broadband connectivity to all government buildings in the county with unprecedented dependability, flexibility and bandwidth. This was the second licensed microwave project completed by ALTIUS for the county.

"Providing a first class and dependable back haul network for our internal goverment customers is always paramount in our overall network strategy" said Jim McCormick , Director of the IT Dept. for the county. "Caroline County is committed to creating and maintaining a cutting edge network that delivers 100% of the time. ALTIUS helps us do that."

Jim Connor, President and CEO of ALTIUS Communications said "Caroline County wanted a robust licensed back haul network and we were eager to help them achieve this goal. We chose Ceragon Networks to provide 18 GHZ microwave radios using 6 ft and 2 ft microwave dishes to help us accomplish this mission."

"We looked at many different factors before deciding to partner with Ceragon," said Connor. "We needed to build a network to support the county that was capable of providing QOS, high bandwidth and allow us to work in a protected frequency band. We also required the equipment we chose to be able to grow with the countyand allow future bandwidth upgrades via software downloads. Ceragon met the challenge."
