LGS Provides Turnkey Solution to US Geological Survey

LGS, a subsidiary of Alcatel-Lucent, has announced that it has provided the US Geological Survey with a turnkey solution that allowed the agency to officially turn over the 1.710 to 1.755GHz spectrum in the San Francisco Bay Area.

According to LGS, the solution involved evaluation, design, installation, testing and user training without disruption to the existing network.

The US Geological Survey (USGS) used the Alcatel-Lucent MDR-8000 radio product with the latest release offering gigabit ethernet and 32xDS1 capability all in one card.

Some modification to the infrastructure still needs to be completed, but this phase of the project was completed ahead of the defined schedule, enabling USGS to turn over spectrum early.
