We got a bit of color for an RDOF project down in Texas this week via two announcements from Pampa-based Resound Networks. The company is bringing both fiber and fixed wireless to bear on the problem, expanding its reach into new markets across the state of Texas.
Resound has tapped Tarana Networks’ G1 platform to expand its nextgen fixed wireless networks in a 46,000 square mile area touching the Houston, Austin, San Antonio, Victoria, and Corpus Christi metro areas. The move enables them to serve greater capacity across a wider area with fewer towers and simpler installation, enabling the company to reach more people at lower cost of operations.
And to connect all that fixed wireless back to the rest of the internet, Resound will be working with FiberLight. FiberLight will be providing a 100G fiber ring between Houston and Dallas with two data center drop points. FiberLight operates an extensive fiber footprint across the state of Texas.
Resound Networks has been around since 2015, and has aspirations to expand beyond its’ current footprint of Texas, Oklahoma, and New Mexico and into the rural areas of adjacent states this year. They won RDOF grants of $311M for multiple projects in 2021.
