Cambridge, UK, October, 2020 – Cambridge Communication Systems (CCS) Limited is pleased to announce that it has become an approved member of the UK Wireless Internet Service Providers Association (UKWISPA) – the recognised trade body for the fixed wireless access industry in the UK.

CCS joins UKWISPA at a pivotal time for the fixed wireless access (FWA) industry, as changing work patterns, a surge in remote education, and increasing moves to home-working due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic continue to drive demand for faster broadband across residential and business communities. Ofcom, the regulating body of UK communications services, has also recently joined UKWISPA, whose aim is to help government bodies and the regulator understand the needs of – and the opportunities offered by – the UK fixed wireless access community to improve the UK broadband landscape.

CCS Executive Chairman Martin Harriman comments: “With Fixed Wireless Access now coming into its own as a way to meet the urgent demand for high-quality broadband, this is absolutely the right time for CCS to join the important UKWISPA community, and for us to contribute to the organisation’s mission of ensuring better quality internet access for everyone. Our Metnet 60G mmWave FWA solution provides an exceptional platform for Gigabit connectivity and virtual fibre services, and we are looking forward to bringing our experience to bear and working closely with UKWISPA and its members, and helping to serve the country’s connectivity needs throughout and beyond the current challenges.”

Working with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DDCMS) and its broadband delivery team, Building Digital UK, UKWISPA is helping to shape several voucher schemes, which use public funds to support the installation of ultra-high-speed internet access to properties that need it, through both fibre and wireless connectivity.

CCS Metnet 60G mmWave Fixed Wireless Access technology enables operators and service providers to rapidly deliver Gigabit services to residential and enterprise customers – from bustling urban centres to remote rural villages. CCS’s Metnet ultra-high capacity unlicensed 60G mmWave mesh system offers 12Gbps nodes with an all-round multi-radio view plus 1Gbps Metnet CPEs to deliver an unrivalled hybrid backhaul and Gigabit fixed wireless access (FWA) solution. Metnet’s 60G nodes and 60G CPEs connect autonomously and intelligently, forming a flexible mesh network powered by CCS’s advanced self-organising and self-healing SDN software.

Metnet offers an optimal Gigabit FWA solution for deployment spanning dense urban, suburban and rural areas, delivering high capacity and supporting low-cost FWA subscribers.

Teraco Boosts Regional Interconnection With MÉTISS Cable

MÉTISS

Teraco, Africa’s largest and most interconnected data centre operator, has become an integral node to the Meltingpot Indianoceanic Submarine System (MÉTISS)

MÉTISS is a 3,200 km subsea fibre optic cable system connecting South Africa to the Indian Ocean islands of Madagascar, Reunion and Mauritius. The MÉTISS consortium comprises Canal+ Télécom, CEB Fibernet, Emtel, Zeop and SRR (SFR) Telma. The MÉTISS cable lands in Amanzimtoti and is backhauled by Liquid Telecoms to Teraco’s data centre in Durban (DB1).

With MÉTISS consortium members having infrastructure in both the Teraco Durban (DB1) and Johannesburg (JB1)data centre facilities, the Indian Ocean Islands have direct access to Teraco’s ecosystem of over 300 networks, 130 IT service providers, 50 global content providers, and the key global cloud providers says Michele McCann, Head of Interconnection and Peering at Teraco. The availability of a new cable servicing the Indian Ocean Islands region widens the addressable market for content and cloud providers in South Africa. It adds new resilience to the existing telecommunications infrastructure.

MÉTISS provides global telecoms organisations, multinationals and enterprises with interests in the region with the reliable services and capacities to empower their digital strategies.

Situated on Durban’s north coast, Teraco DB1 is a strategic interconnection hub on the African subsea cable map with access to MÉTISS and the cable systems of Seacom and EASSy that are already accessible from the facility. Teraco’s DB1 facility is connected to the JB1 Campus in Isando, Johannesburg through a wide choice of carriers, via diverse regional fibre routes. It will allow clients to increase the number of partners they connect with and expand their reach into new markets. Teraco’s DB1 facility offers clients secure colocation and interconnection services, as well as the ability to leverage Teraco’s digital hubs in DB1 and JB1 directly.

“The cable brings connectivity across regions that were previously hard to reach. Through Teraco, access to this cable is an interconnect away and in keeping with our tagline, ‘the world connects here’, we are very proud to play such a pivotal role in the success of this cable system,” says McCann. Peering at Africa’s largest Internet exchange, NAPAfrica, is now also possible for the island region and brings many benefits: reduced latency; network fault tolerance; reliable exchange of traffic; increased routing control; and improved network performance.

Interconnection and peering successfully addresses a growing need for more bandwidth but at the lowest possible latency. This also needs to be done cost-effectively. The MÉTISS cable system will enable further interconnection within the Indian Ocean Islands region and the growth of its digital economy. Teraco makes it easy and accessible for everyone to connect within the data centre and immediately benefit.
