Cingular Awards 3-Year RAN Equipment Contract to Carrier Access

Cingular Wireless awarded a three year supply agreement to Carrier Access Corporation to provide next generation equipment for their radio access network (RAN). Cingular selected the Carrier Access MASTERseries platform with "FLEXengine" technology, which incorporates IP management, voice and data prioritization, dynamic bandwidth re-use, and transport data convergence.

Cingular has over 47,000 cell sites, of which over 17,000 are already installed with Carrier Access MASTERseries nodes. This new contract not only gives Carrier Access the opportunity to place new nodes in the remaining 30,000 sites, but also the ability to upgrade the existing sites with incremental hardware and software capabilities.
