Hometown Cable Selects Trilliant's SkyPilot Network for Rural Broadband Access Solution

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Sept. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Trilliant, a leading wireless communications provider, today announced it has been selected to provide broadband wireless networking equipment for Hometown Cable, a triple play service provider serving customers in Ohio.

Hometown Cable received a $2.4 million grant from the Department of Agriculture's Rural Utilities Services (RUS) program, part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), to expand rural broadband access in its service territory. Trilliant's SkyPilot wireless broadband network will help reach customers who have been under-served or un-served due to distance and challenging terrain. The grant will fund wireless network equipment as well as create new jobs for project management and installation.

Hometown Cable recently acquired g-Wireless, a broadband Internet service provider. g-Wireless has an existing SkyPilot network that will be expanded for Hometown Cable's needs. "The reliable performance of our existing network made Trilliant's SkyPilot mesh network a logical choice for expansion," said Bill Kessler, project engineer and manager of Hometown Cable. "Trilliant's SkyPilot mesh technology does an exceptional job overcoming the challenges of our geography and delivering the throughput we need over long distances. The ease of deployment and operation is an additional benefit of Trilliant's SkyPilot solution that impacted our decision." "Rural broadband initiatives continue to be important for many service providers across the country," said Arnie Liepa, senior vice president of channel businesses at Trilliant. "Trilliant's SkyPilot solution already has proven success for these challenging deployments and we are proud that Hometown Cable has selected us for their project." WAV Distribution, in partnership with Moonblink Communications, will be providing the equipment and logistic services for the project. The first phase of the project will involve installation of network gateways, extenders and connectors to deliver wireless Internet access to residential and business customers as well as rural schools. The SkyPilot Element Management System (EMS) software will be utilized for provisioning, configuration and overall network management.

"As one of the first distributors to embrace wireless broadband technologies, WAV is proud to be supplying Moonblink and ultimately Hometown Cable with Trilliant's high performing wireless broadband platform to give under-served areas the opportunity to receive wireless Internet service," said Zach Hubeck, sales and marketing director at WAV.
