Parallel Wireless announced that it was selected by Wisconsin-based wireless carrier Cellcom for their network expansion.

Parallel Wireless says that it makes deployments as easy and as cost-effective as Wi-Fi and will connect both consumer and business subscribers in the markets that Cellcom serves. Its unique, low cost, low footprint and virtualized multi-technology solution helps service providers to deliver coverage by making deployments easy and affordable to install and maintain.

The Company claims that its all-in-one multi-technology software-defined compact base station Converged Wireless System (CWS) maximizes data and voice coverage for superior quality of experience for Cellcom's end users. HetNet Gateway (HNG) is an ALL G software platform for configuring, optimizing, and automating the network. It also provides seamless mobility and low latency for the best subscriber experience for Cellcom customers today on 4G and on 5G in the future.

Another benefit is the ease of installing and maintaining CWS. This feature enables much more cost-effective networks for places where business models are challenging and allows faster return on network investment for mobile operators and prepares them for 5G.

Robert Sobieck, Senior Director of Engineering, Cellcom
Parallel Wireless is an innovative, cost-effective provider of network solutions. We're looking forward to adding Parallel Wireless to our vendor portfolio and working with their team on our upcoming network expansion. 

Steve Libbey, VP, Sales, Parallel Wireless
This new network will allow their rural and urban customers to experience new best-of-breed services over both 4G and, in the future, 5G. This network expansion will also empower end users to have access to the best wireless service and will promote business growth.
