Parallel Wireless Inc. has entered into a strategic partnership with Competitive Carriers Association (CCA) to provide network infrastructure for CCA’s carrier members to cost-effectively accelerate and enable their 4G expansion and 5G network migration. This will enable the operators to better serve customers in rural America, businesses and other consumers. Parallel Wireless is also a CCA associate member.

A key goal of CCA and Parallel Wireless’ strategic partnership is to provide CCA’s members with cost-effective solutions to close this digital divide not only to begin experiencing cost savings and operational efficiency, but also to future-proof their networks for 5G and adapt to policy and regulation changes.

According to the 2019 Statista report, only 78 per cent of the US rural population has access to the internet, compared to 92 per cent in urban areas. There are economical and technical challenges that contribute to this digital divide, including cost of deployment, access to spectrum, equipment interoperability and high operational cost in low density areas. With the need to expand the 4G network and 5G on the horizon, rural carriers are looking for cost-effective network solutions that will improve their business models and help them not only to survive but also thrive.

Commenting on the partnership, Steven K. Berry, President and CEO, CCA said, “CCA is pleased to partner with Parallel Wireless to provide our members with a fully-virtualised 4G and 5G Open RAN solution that is flexible and optimised for cost-effective rural coverage. The goal is to help smaller carriers reduce deployment cost, increase revenues, provide ubiquitous connectivity for their customers, whether businesses or individuals, and get their networks ready for 5G, and we are delighted to work with Parallel Wireless in this special partnership.”

Meanwhile, Steve Libbey, Vice President, Sales, Parallel Wireless said, “We are excited to support CCA members by offering our innovative and cost-effective 4G and 5G solutions. We are confident that deployment of Parallel Wireless’ unique architecture can help bridge the digital divide and enable business transformation. We are looking forward to continuing to support CCA and their members to help them achieve their business goals.”
