Globecomm Systems — The 3G Switch Is On

Globecomm Systems Inc. (NASDAQ: GCOM) has announced Indigo Wireless, a rural wireless operator in Pennsylvania and Nebraska, is the latest carrier to use Globecomm’s 3G switch platform, which offers affordable, 3G hosted mobile services to under-serviced areas worldwide. The platform provides switching facilities for Indigo Wireless subscribers and its roaming partners, with services for voice, video and data.

Globecomm’s carrier-class 3G switch platform, which entered service in November 2009, enables carriers to have access to broadened wireless coverage without a major capital or operational investment. With full redundancy for all major components, the switch provides a 100 percent IP-based soft-switch architecture with a forward path to 4G technologies. The switch core has a capacity to service more than 1,000,000 subscribers. To support the new switch, Globecomm installed dedicated power systems in its Network Operations Center in Hauppauge, New York, where technicians and engineers provide 24/7 network-monitoring and customer support. Redundant fiber circuits and generator systems support the Globecomm facility.
