NexxCom handles the complete customer relationship cycle including network design, project management, spectrum licensing, facility acquisition and management, install, commissioning, and on-going service requirements. The company also manages the facilities that the wireless capabilities rely on with its in-house, time zone diverse 7/24/365 network operations centers.
NexxCom believes in employing company owned and developed technology and limits deployment and integration of off-the-shelf products. “Much of the digital technologies that we deploy in our networks belong to us and is company developed intellectual property. We are constantly improving and developing our technology to a point where we will be introducing 10 gigabytes per second capability in the near future,” explains Benti. NexxCom also provides high performance broadband capabilities to a number of vertical market segments such as alternative access solutions for route diversity and potential disaster recovery for Data Centers and Carrier Hotels.
“NexxCom is a compliment to fiber carriers,” adds Benti. In the Carrier and Enterprise vertical the company works closely with companies like AT&T in the U.S. to service their end user bandwidth requirements. The company has partnered with Level 3 Communications—an American multinational telecommunications provider, on the largest worldwide hybrid-fiber Trans-Atlantic sub-sea route, connecting NY and London financial markets. “We supply capabilities to many well known fiber carriers in the U.S. for off-net services where customer access is not yet available or economically feasible to build fiber to,” Benti reckons.
Benti further elucidates that financial services firms (Banks and High Frequency Traders) require building and maintaining absolute lowest latency services to remain competitive. NexxCom probably has 25-30 percent of U.S. and European Equity, commodities, futures and currency trades running over its networks, which have been largely private networks thus far, although Benti adds that NexxCom is providing more shared bandwidth networks due to industry demand for its services.
We are constantly improving the technology to a point where we will be introducing 10 gigabytes per second capability very economically with an entire suite of value added capabilities in the radio
Going forward, NexxCom’s focus is on solidifying its strategy as a full spectrum network provider that employs best-in-class technology. “We will continue to improve wireless communication capabilities and will look to employ fiber technologies in co ordination with wireless,” says Benti. The company is developing a new technology in the high performance wireless offering, which will provide very economical millimeter wave capacity of 10Gbps per radio. Benti strongly believes that it would be an absolute industry game changer and the most economical radio in terms of deployment costs in the market.
