Nemont Telephone Selects Mimosa Networks for Fiber-Fast Wireless Broadband Services

5G Fixed Wireless Solutions Deliver Ultra-broadband Services to Underserved Rural Montana Subscribers     SANTA CLARA, Calif. – September 12, 2017 – Mimosa Networks, the leader in 5G Fixed wireless solutions, announced today that Nemont Telephone Cooperative (Nemont) has selected the company’s fiber-fast wireless solutions to deliver ultra-broadband fixed wireless services to underserved subscribers in Montana.   With thousands of rural customers in its 14,000 square mile service area, Nemont is challenged with delivering a compelling broadband experience to all of its customers over existing copper-based DSL infrastructure.  The business case for deploying fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) architectures is difficult, if not impossible, in some of the extreme high cost, low customer density areas within the Nemont footprint.   Enter Mimosa Networks.  “Fixed wireless is another tool in our broadband tool kit to rapidly advance our mission of connecting rural customers to the world,” said Mike Kilgore, CEO of Nemont.  “It enables us to connect these customers in an efficient and cost-effective manner, making it possible to deliver a compelling broadband experience to our customers sooner when compared to other wireline-based alternatives.”   Prior to selecting Mimosa, Nemont considered alternative solutions to deliver the minimal broadband speeds of 10Mbps down/1Mbps up to meet the FCC mandates.  With the new Mimosa MicroPoP and GigaPoP architectures, Nemont can now far exceed the FCC minimum requirements, delivering in excess of 100Mbps services to its...

The cloud-based service offers automated clipping with metadata and caption synchronization simultaneously   Fremont, CA, September 12, 2017 – At the upcoming IBC Show in Amsterdam, Digital Nirvana will showcase its new all-in-one automated sports clipping service. The sports clipping service is coupled with automated caption synchronization, and enables broadcasters to easily capture and share every fast-paced moment in a game. Designed to empower users to publish sports media content online and via social media without time lag while complying with new FCC regulations, Digital Nirvana will show the automated sports clipping service during IBC in Hall 14, Stand P25. “The way that viewers consume sports has changed in recent years, with the consumption of conventional broadcast of entire games decreasing, while an ever-growing percentage of audiences are tuning into games and matches via social media, online, or on mobile devices,” said Hiren Hindocha, Digital Nirvana’s CEO. “This translates into more viewers consuming sports snippets, rather than watching the entire event. In response to growing demand, we developed our automated sports clipping service so that broadcasters can easily capture and reproduce any fast-paced moment of a game. The service allows them to effortlessly create relevant video highlights and better cater to their evolving audiences.” First introduced earlier this year at NAB, Digital Nirvana’s sports clipping service automatically analyzes sports broadcasts in real-time and generates ready-to-publish clips of those highlights....
