Challenges

West Central Wireless noticed instability in their network service resulting in losing money due to truck rolls and low performance. In addition to this unreliability service, there was lack of technical support available when problems arose from the equipment. The equipment used was not able to support the deployment distance leaving customers without consistent service.

How Product Helped

West Central Wireless was in need of products that could support over 6,500 fixed wireless customers and an upwards of 500 customers a month. With the help of BEC equipment, West Central Wireless not only did this but was able to support their furthest deployed customer from a tower 19.8 miles away. BEC’s products provide West Central Wireless with a more reliable service and increased performance with more accessible data rates at all distances from the tower. In addition to the router, West Central Wireless deployed remote management system which enables them access into the routers remotely for troubleshooting purposes when needed, greatly reducing their time spent on each support call and reduces truck rolls.
