Airspan Networks says that it has received a network expansion contract from CTS Gibraltar. CTS is expanding its network using Airspan's WiMAX solutions in the licensed 3.5 GHz frequency band. Airspan will supply its MacroMAX base stations and EasyST indoor CPEs (customer premise equipment).
CTS Gibraltar is part of the CTS Group which is present in the United Kingdom, Gibraltar and Spain. CTS offers communications services to both residential and corporate customers. The network expansion with Airspan's WiMAX solutions is targeted for the Gibraltar peninsula and will initially offer wireless broadband access service.

We are pleased to be working with Airspan to quickly provide voice and data services using their technology to offer exciting new products to our growing customer base," said Steve Lambourne, CTO of CTS.
"CTS is a long standing Airspan customer and a leading telecommunication and IT services provider on the peninsula. This initiative to expand their network to offer WiMAX services characterizes the transition we are seeing as carriers through the region are looking to WiMAX to enhance their service offerings and grow their customer base," said Anders Rendahl, Airspan's Senior Vice President of Sales and General Manager of EMEA.
