Wazco and Lindsay Broadband partner on optical backhaul for LTE metrocell
June 16, 2011 // Jean-Pierre Joosting
Wazco, a provider of multi-sector metro LTE picocells and Lindsay Broadband, a last-mile communications specialist, have announced a first-of-its-kind, strand-mounted optical backhaul solution for Wazco's family of MetroStorm basestations. Dubbed “MetroStrand,” these LTE 4G-enabled optical gateways allow cable operators to deploy managed gigabit services “right at the strand.”
“MetroStrand is specifically designed to take full advantage of existing multiple system operator (MSO) assets,” explained Mike Nasco, Wazco’s CEO. “MetroStrand is specifically designed to be deployed in less than an hour, allowing rapid, straightforward, cost-effective, and scalable network augmentation. In addition, MetroStrand is powered by eSON™, the advanced RAN management software by AirHop Communications, facilitating seamless integration with MetroStorm clusters.”
“Lindsay’s Optical Gateway platform eliminates the need for expensive outdoor cabinets and provides Wazco’s Metrostrand outdoor hardened access to the MSOs infrastructure for optical backhaul.’” added David Atman, Lindsay Broadband’s president. “Our FLEeX LM™ Architecture is an ideal fit for MetroStrand and has a wide variety of deployment options and configurations.”
Wazco MetroStrand is a "single sector," 700 MHz strand-mounted base station which is functionally equivalent to one of the 4 sectors of the Wazco MetroStorm metrocell announced last month at the LTE World Summit in Amsterdam.

Internet of Things (IoT) manufacturer Ciseco has launched the Raspberry Pi ‘Wireless Inventors Kit’ (RasWIK), featuring 88 pieces to provide everything a Pi owner needs to follow a series of step-by-step projects or to create their own wireless devices, without the need for configuration or even writing code.
RasWIK has been designed to be highly accessible, demystifying the dark art of wireless and enabling anyone with basic computing skills to begin building wireless devices with a Raspberry Pi. You can create anything from a simple traffic light, to a battery monitor, or even a temperature gauge that sends data to the Xively IoT cloud so billions can access the data.This month, Ciseco is giving away twelve Raspberry Pi Wireless Inventors kits, worth £49.99 each for EETimes Europe's readers to win.
And the winners are...
In our previous reader offer, Farsens was giving away five kits for EEtimes Europe readers to evaluate its FenixVortex, Kineo and X1 wireless, battery free sensor tags.
Lucky winners include Mr A. Neil from the UK, Mr. E. Delvaux from Belgium, Mr Lengal from the Czech Republic, Mr H. Bijlsma from the Netherlands, and Mr G. Pfaff from Germany. All should be receiving their packages soon. Lets wish them some interesting findings with their projects.
