Omaha, NE, United States, 2009/06/19 - Adesta, LLC, was awarded a five-year contract for wireless site development services in the Northeast and Southeast parts of the country from leading wireless broadband service provider Open Range Communications (ORC).
Adesta, LLC, a systems integrator and project management company for communication networks and electronic security systems, was awarded a five-year contract for wireless site development services in the Northeast and Southeast parts of the country from leading wireless broadband service provider Open Range Communications (ORC), headquartered in Greenwood Village, Colorado.
Under the terms of the contract, Adesta will join Alvarion in deploying Open Range’s WiMAX voice and high speed Internet to underserved communities in the Northeast and Southeast United States. Adesta will provide deployment services from site acquisition through installation on this groundbreaking 4G wireless broadband network. The company’s work will begin immediately, encompass five southeastern states and four northeastern states, and is estimated to be completed within five years.
“Open Range is bringing high speed broadband Internet to millions of Americans in communities around the country, and Adesta is instrumental in making this deployment occur quickly in the Northeast and Southeast parts of the country for Open Range,” said Keith Paglusch, executive vice president of Open Range Communications. “Within five years, these presently un-served and underserved communities will have the same level of broadband technology that’s now available in only a few major cities.”
In January 2009, Open Range Communications received a $100 million investment from JPMorgan’s private equity arm, One Equity Partners (OEP). This investment was a prerequisite to a $267 million Broadband Access Loan from the United States Department of Agriculture’s Rural Development Utilities Program (RDUP). Within the next five years, Open Range, through the use of WiMAX technology, plans to deliver wireless broadband to more than 500 un-served and underserved communities within the United States.
“One of the principal benefits of WiMAX technology is the ability to construct and deploy a high speed broadband network rapidly,” said Bob Sommerfeld, president of Adesta. “Open Range has embarked on an important mission through this historic network that will propel the advancement of the broadband initiatives. We are excited to help them realize their vision.”
