Caroline County Selects ALTIUS to Deploy Licensed Microwave to Support Broadband Network on Eastern Shore of MD

Phoenix, MD - August 9, 2011 - ALTIUS Communications is pleased to announce that was selected and successfully completed the construction of a turnkey microwave network in Caroline County 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 government 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 county and allow future bandwidth upgrades via software downloads. Ceragon met the challenge."
