  • CAMPBELL, Calif., February 2, 2011 – Exalt Communications today announced that Central Electric Power Cooperative (CEPC) of Jefferson City, Missouri has deployed Exalt microwave backhaul systems to carry mission-critical TDM and Ethernet traffic among its power facilities and eight member cooperatives. CEPC is a transmission and generation cooperative, and its members provide power for approximately 165,000 customers across 27 counties in Missouri. CEPC’s network is crucial to providing operational and management information across a network that spans the central portion of the state.

    Analog SCADA Backhaul
  • CAMPBELL, Calif., April 13, 2010 – Exalt Communications, the company that is reinventing microwave backhaul, today announced that the city of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, has deployed Exalt microwave backhaul systems to support reliable, high-speed wireless connectivity among 20 public buildings. Winter temperatures as low as -30 Fahrenheit had put the City’s fiber optic links out of commission, but Exalt microwave backhaul links have been completely reliable, causing the City to rethink its annual spring efforts to repair freeze damage to its fiber lines

  • CAMPBELL, Calif. — Feb. 8, 2012 — Exalt Communications today announced that Corn Belt Power Cooperative, a generation and transmission (G&T) electric cooperative providing power in 41 northern Iowa counties, has deployed Exalt microwave backhaul systems to consolidate its legacy communications network and better manage the traffic load on its smart grid and SCADA systems. A mix of Exalt licensed and license-exempt microwave links is helping Corn Belt Power cut operational costs and help its members more efficiently manage peak consumption.

    Corn Belt Power Backhaul
  • CAMPBELL, Calif. — September 19, 2012— Exalt Communications today announced that Houston County, Minn., is using an Exalt microwave backhaul system to connect all of the county’s public safety radio communications. The system connects Houston County to Minnesota’s Allied Radio Matrix for Emergency Response (ARMER), the interoperable emergency communications network that links agencies, local governments, and first-responders throughout the state. The Houston County Sheriff’s Office headed up the project, and the selection of Exalt saved significant costs for the county.

    Silver Tower
    South Dakota Power Cooperative
  • On the rare occasion of an outage, the technicians from Calhoun Communications, Inc. responded well within the time-frame contracted and were able to restore service immediately. I also believe that contracting with Calhoun to conduct a post-installation system tune-up has contributed to our wireless network stability.

    Based on our experience, I would highly recommend Calhoun Communications, Inc. for any type of wireless project regardless of size and complexity. read more
