SOLiD was recognized as a finalist in the category of Metrocell Backhaul for the INFINITY ACCESS 2.0 solution. 

INFINITY ACCESS 2.0 is an elegant and efficient optical transport solution that increases capacity within existing fiber deployments to address the explosive demand for bandwidth. This tunable DWDM Access solution is ideal for CPRI & Ethernet fed LTE Networks and provides Tunable Optics at Access Network prices -- a first for the industry. INFINITY ACCESS 2.0 solves the Access bottleneck and gives wireless operators the tools they will need to manage the Small Cell node deployment revolution under way.

Finalists’ applications were judged by an exclusive carrier-only panel of executives from AT&T, CableLabs, Cablevision System Corporation, Comcast, Cox Communications, Inc., Orange, Sprint, TeliaSonera International Carrier, and Verizon. Full profiles of the judges can be found at https://www.fierceinnovationawards.com/telecom/2014/judges.

All applications were evaluated based on the following criteria: technology innovation, financial impact, market validation, compatibility with existing networks, end-user customer experience, and overall level of innovation.

“Extending capacity and bandwidth holds significant potential for the industry in terms of both operational efficiency and enhanced services for consumers, but realizing this potential can often be challenging for those in the wireless ecosystem. INFINITY ACCESS 2.0 is designed to meet this challenge by reducing the OPEX costs and making networks easier to scale," said Seth Buechley, president at SOLiD North America. "We are delighted to have been recognized for innovation by the Fierce panel of judges, who clearly understand the complexities of the Access bottleneck and the need for new solutions.”
