Why Partner with BEC Technologies?

Upon initial deployment, LigTel began to notice a wide range of issues centered around their original CPE equipment. These issues included network instability, coverage limitations, and limited management and monitoring capabilities.

As a 5+ year customer of BEC Technologies, LigTel looked to BEC for options regarding a stable and high-performance 4G/LTE CPE solution after benefits from the reliable BEC 7402 and 5200 Series DSL products. After consultation with LigTel’s LTE deployment team regarding their product and network requirements, BEC introduced the 6200WZL 4G/LTE with SX-7 Antenna Technology that can be utilized on LigTel’s 700MHz LTE and AWS concurrently. During the evaluation and testing period, BEC worked closely with LigTel to troubleshot issues and helped develop and customize special firmware for them.

Shortly after the deployment of the 6200WZL 4G/LTE gateway in their network, LigTel began to notice a 30% decrease in support calls and a measurable increase in customer satisfaction. The 6200WZL coupled with the BEC’s SX-7 Antenna Technology dramatically increased the coverage area by up to 30% and allowing for deployment distances of up to 10 miles from the tower. The stability and performance increases gained by the 6200WZL, in addition to BEC’s Value Added Services such as direct local support, software customization, forecasted stock and the rapid shipment of a US-based headquarters have enabled a continuous, smooth and comprehensive LTE deployment. To quote LigTel’s Internet and Marketing Manager, “We have been very pleased with the performance and ease of use of the BEC LTE Radios. They have allowed us to deploy our LTE network quicker and easier.”
