Angie Communications Announces Fiber Agreement with California’s Wilcon
Angie will utilize Wilcon’s 3,000 miles of fiber and communications infrastructure for the backhaul and servicing of its ubiquitous Gigabit wireless Internet network in California, starting in Los Angeles City.
LOS ANGELES, CA – June 16, 2016 – Angie Communications USA, Inc. today announced that the company has entered into a Master Services Agreement with Wilcon, a premier West Coast provider of best-in-class fiber optic network and data center infrastructure, to utilize Wilcon’s infrastructure for the backhaul and servicing of its upcoming ubiquitous wireless Internet networks in California.
Angie is the world's largest telecom startup. In the coming months, Angie will start rolling out large scale wireless networks in Europe and the USA, delivering Gigabit connectivity to wireless users under its Wireless Extreme brand. The company is building the world's only multi-nation next-generation communications infrastructure, anchored on optical fiber, which the firm either directly owns or leases from -or builds in cooperation with- some of the world's largest fiber network operators. In aggregate, Angie will connect its Wireless Gigabit users to multi-(ten) terabit pipes.
Angie will roll out cutting-edge 5G-ready telecommunications networks in USA cities and neighborhoods. Angie’s outdoor wireless infrastructure will include the latest carrier-class Wi-Fi technology. In each neighborhood, 10 -15 outdoor wireless access points will be directly connected to Angie’s fiber optic network, strengthened by many street level access points. Industry experts are well aware that the 5G promise cannot be fulfilled without such an ultra-dense wireless infrastructure, which needs to be fiber-fed. Only fiber backhaul (with multiple terabits per second connectivity) can handle the upcoming exponential growth of mobile and wireless data usage. Angie’s wireless network is beyond 5G-ready; due to the connection on Angie’s virtually unlimited fiber capacity, its network is 5G-primed - intelligent, connected, wired and wireless.
Angie brings fiber to thousands of buildings and sites in its markets, fully equipped with the most advanced wired and wireless technologies. As a result, Gigabit wireless speeds per user could be available. Parallel to its Gigabit Wireless Extreme service, Angie will also start providing 10 Gbps speeds to businesses at very competitive rates, soon followed by residential services at 10 Gbps per connection.
Angie was founded by an international team of highly qualified technology professionals. Angie’s team includes renowned visionaries and industry pioneers who have helped shape the 4G mobile, 5G wireless and Fiber-To-The Premises industries. Angie’s founding team has a combined 500+ years of experience in business; its executive team consists of industry pioneers and experts with a combined 300 years of telecom experience.
Recently, Angie named Gregory Nemitz to lead the USA and Canada 5G Wireless project. He has been involved with the firm since 1999, and is one of the founding architects of Angie’s international business and technology models.
