Aurora, IL and Milpitas, CA — October 26, 2022 — WAV, MBSI WAV, and Last Mile Gear, full-service distributors of LTE, wireless broadband, networking, and Wi-Fi equipment, and Tarana, the manufacturer of carrier-grade and award-winning next-generation fixed wireless access (ngFWA) solutions, today announced distribution partnerships to supply North America with Tarana’s full product portfolio.
WAV and its affiliates will provide pre-sales engineering, stocking, network design, and post-sales services for Tarana’s G1 platform, to accelerate closing the digital divide and bringing healthy competition to mainstream markets.
Adding Tarana’s G1 platform to the WAV team’s portfolio will allow their customers to meet federal bandwidth obligations in RDOF deployments and to deliver high-speed internet in challenging near- and non-line-of-sight applications, using CBRS, 5 GHz, and as of next year, 6 GHz frequencies. The G1 platform delivers remarkable capacity (up to an aggregate 1.6 Gbps per link in x2 mode), while offering unprecedented interference cancellation in congested unlicensed or lightly-licensed spectrum. As a result, interest in G1 is driving global channel expansion and a steadily growing customer base.
“We are excited to offer Tarana solutions to our valued partners and customers in the United States, Canada, and the Caribbean” said Bob Nelson, WAV’s Chief Operating Officer. “Our mutual dedication to bridging the divide and enabling reliable, high-capacity internet connections for our clients and their end users makes this partnership a great fit. We approach 2023 with a well-rounded portfolio of fixed wireless and fiber solutions to support our clients making a difference in unserved and underserved communities”.
“We look forward to working with the WAV team to leverage their deep experience in service provider, tribal, and vertical markets for our joint customers’ benefit in North America,” said Mike Calabrese, Tarana’s Vice President of Worldwide Sales. “These partnerships will certainly advance our mission to make fast, affordable internet access much more widely available.”
