Mimosa Networks, the provider of 5G Fixed wireless solutions, has announced that Nemont Telephone Cooperative (Nemont) has selected the company´s fiber-fast wireless solutions to deliver ultra-broadband fixed wireless services to underserved subscribers in Montana, the company said.
With thousands of rural customers in its 14,000 square mile service area, Nemont is challenged with delivering a compelling broadband experience to all of its customers over existing copper-based DSL infrastructure. The business case for deploying fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) architectures is difficult, if not impossible, in some of the extreme high cost, low customer density areas within the Nemont footprint.
Prior to selecting Mimosa, Nemont considered alternative solutions to deliver the minimal broadband speeds of 10Mbps down/1Mbps up to meet the FCC mandates. With the new Mimosa MicroPoP and GigaPoP architectures, Nemont can now far exceed the FCC minimum requirements, delivering in excess of 100Mbps services to its customers, allowing those customers access to Nemont´s various telecommunications service offerings.
Nemont deployed its GigaPoP networks by using the Mimosa A5c access point, the Mimosa C5 and C5c client devices, and Mimosa cloud-management tools. This next generation fixed wireless architecture allows Nemont to reach customers who previously were out of reach of traditional broadband services.
Nemont Telephone Cooperative is a facilities-based telecommunications service provider serving over 14,000 square miles of Northeastern Montana, Northwestern North Dakota, South Central Montana, and Northern Wyoming. Along with its subsidiaries Sagebrush Cellular, Project Telephone, Missouri Valley Communications and Nemont Communications Incorporated, Nemont Telephone Cooperative is committed to connecting our rural customers to the world through innovative Wireline and Wireless Broadband services. Nemont Telephone Cooperative was organized in 1950 and is headquartered in Scobey, Montana.
