Silo Wireless, Inc. and Tazca Connects Deploy Fast, Easy and Affordable 4G LTE Rural Wireless Network in Ontario, Canada

Silo Wireless and Tazca Connects partner to Change the Rural Ontario Wireless Landscape by providing fast, easy and affordable high-speed rural Internet infrastructure

ITASCA, Ill., April 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Silo Wireless, Inc. announces plans to deploy a large multi county 4G LTE Rural Wireless Network in Ontario, Canada that accelerates rural connections and broadband services. Silo Wireless is expanding its high-speed rural Internet infrastructure by deploying fast, easy and affordable 4G LTE Rural Wireless for residents, businesses, government, schools and farmers.

Andreas Wiatowski, Silo Wireless CEO, stated that Silo selected "Tazca Connects since their 4G LTE service was based on Lemko Corporation's virtualized and distributed LTE architecture, a true innovation that makes LTE very cost-effective. With Tazca Connects, LTE is available on-demand with new coverage and capacity capabilities versus traditional WISP infrastructures, even across challenging terrains and environments. Tazca Connects has proven that they have a good Rural LTE model that distributes the LTE core to the network edge and brings industry-leading efficiencies to CAPEX and OPEX expenditures." 

Tazca Connects' service will be powered by an innovative software platform from Lemko Corporation, bringing easy, reliable, and cost-effective 4G LTE connectivity to residents and businesses in the Silo Wireless licensed footprint. This new LTE service will expand their current rural broadband infrastructure and is uniquely enabled by a powerful software architecture which features advanced fixed wireless broadband capability and capacity. The software platform is designed to sit on an appliance at each LTE Macro site and connects directly to the cloud via an Internet connection. This enables substantially lower up-front capital expense, eliminates backhaul, virtualizes the core, and allows for dramatically lower on-going operational expenses. The software, when combined with Tazca Connect's pay-as-you-grow LTE model and rapid deployment, allows Tazca and its local partners to provide the lowest per-subscriber per GB MHz POP cost in any market.

"Silo Wireless is exciting to work with because of their passion for delivering excellent customer service and their mission to enable innovative broadband services across rural communities in the territories they cover. Our partnership demonstrates that powerful software, combined with a powerful vision, can connect people anywhere on Earth with cost-effective, carrier-grade LTE services," said Michael Sisto, Vice President of Sales, Tazca Connects. "Tazca Connects is a leader in providing rural LTE and we are pleased to help Silo Wireless extend affordable Internet access within the Province of Ontario and enable the next wave of 4G Broadband based Internet of Everything (IOE) value added services like Tele-Medicine, Tele-Vet and M2M applications for rural and urban communities with last mile broadband access."
