CENX Expands 4G-LTE Wireless Backhaul Platform – Supports LightSquared 4G Wireless U.S. Countrywide Rollout

Jersey City, NJ, Tuesday Aug. 9, 2011. CENX, Inc., operator of the world’s first and most connected Carrier Ethernet exchanges, with more than 15 million accessible ESLs (Ethernet Service Locations), today announced further expansion of its industry leading 4G-LTE wireless backhaul platform, including support of LightSquared’s deployment of its nationwide 4G-LTE wireless broadband network.

Wireless operators implementing LTE require (i) ubiquitous Ethernet backhaul, which means integrating multiple access providers across a region, (ii) a certain path to multi-class of service, which is the only way to secure the lowest cost per bit, and (iii) support systems for monitoring backhaul and SLAs that are Ethernet ready. CENX’s comprehensive OSS platform resolves all three challenges; it features systems and processes for rapid integration of diverse backhaul providers together a complete set of processes for order fulfillment, tracking, provisioning, turn up testing, and operational performance/fault monitoring.

“Our decision to work with CENX was based on their unparalleled expertise in Carrier Ethernet and its exchange services,” said LightSquared Chief Network Officer Doug Smith. “CENX’s advanced OSS will help ensure LightSquared delivers a best-in-class integrated 4G-LTE wireless broadband and satellite network.”

“Efficiently delivering the bandwidth required in the wireless backhaul space is the single biggest challenge in the industry; Carrier Ethernet, with its Multi-Class of Service capability, can break the bandwidth logjam and drive the lowest cost per bit and higher profitability. ” said Nan Chen, President of CENX. “We are proud to be supporting LightSquared’s development of its industry changing network.”
