Tranzeo Wireless Technologies Inc., a wireless broadband equipment maker based in Pitt Meadows BC, has received U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Utilities Service (RUS) acceptance for a wide variety of its products operating in the licensed and unlicensed frequency bands. The equipment includes backhaul, point-to-multipoint, and public safety bands gears. “This announcement means that rural communities will have a variety of low cost options for both last mile and for long range backhaul equipment. Tranzeo's low cost point to point links will allow service to be brought quickly and inexpensively to underserved areas,” said Damian Wallace, CTO, Tranzeo Wireless. “As the acceptance includes our NLOS 900 MHz equipment many rural communities now have options that did not exist previously.” The U.S. Recovery Act appropriated US$7.2 billion and directed the RUS and the Department of Commerce's National Telecommunications Information Administration to expand broadband access to unserved and underserved communities across the U.S.
