Fastback Networks' radio deployed during Obama commencement address at Rutgers

Fastback Networks' Intelligent Backhaul Radio (IBR) was deployed to provide the temporary wireless backhaul during President Barack Obama's commencement address at Rutgers University on May 15 at High Point Solutions Stadium, Piscataway, N.J.

Deployed by the wireless infrastructure services company AMP Communications to carry Tier 1 operator traffic, the Fastback IBR delivered 100 percent up-time, averaging 880 Mbps throughput performance to meet the level of demand for mobile service for the 52,000 attendees to President Obama's commencement address.

AMP deployed Fastback Networks' IBR backhaul using a Cell [Site] on Wheels (CoW) as a temporary tower to provide backhaul connectivity for the stadium's Distributed Antenna System (DAS), which in turn supported the surge in mobile traffic that was expected for the event. Release
