Dual-Carrier microwave and 10Gbps millimeter-wave radios deliver ultra-high bandwidth capacity following Category 5 hurricanes.

April 14, 2020, Dallas, TX. - SIAE MICROELETTRONICA, Inc. a leading supplier and innovator of licensed microwave backhaul solutions announced today that Broadband VI, LLC, the leading fixed wireless internet service provider in the United States Virgin Islands (USVI), utilizes their ALFOplus80HDX 80GHz and ALFOplus2 RF-multicore microwave backhaul solutions for network growth and resiliency.

Broadband VI provides fiber and wireless-based services to residential, commercial, enterprise, academic and public sector customers, and has a history of continuous investment in its outside plant to meet growing customer demand. Category 5 hurricanes Irma and Maria devastated the USVI with windspeeds exceeding 175 mph and wiped out most telecommunications services. Broadband VI was the first ISP to restore service and looked to build a scalable multi-gigabit infrastructure while also improving resiliency and reliability.

Broadband VI turned to SIAE Microelettronica to supply highly reliable and resilient microwave systems. With 10Gbps (ALFOplus80HDX) and 1.4Gbps (ALFOplus2) capacities, all with hardened, carrier-grade construction, these solutions exceeded the requirements while designed to stand up to the harsh conditions periodically experienced in the USVI.

“We are pleased BBVI entrusted our multi-gigabit solutions during this critical multi-gigabit network renewal”, said Augustino Lucenti, vice-president of North America for SIAE MICROELETTRONICA.
