We have performed more than 4,000 projects for clients around the world. Read about some of these groundbreaking projects.
RCC's engineers pioneered the development of radio frequency engineering tools, known as the ComSite software suite. Organizations around the world use the tools to design, optimize, manage and operate their wireless networks.
RCC has been a leader in data exchange for more than a quarter of a century. We pioneered shared wireless data networks, developing the first national commercial wireless mobile data network in 1986. Since then, we have expanded our services to include privately owned and carrier-provided services, both wireless (microwave, infrared, satellite, WiFi, WiMAX and others) and wireline (copper and fiber).
We are at the forefront of the next evolution of wireless communications technology, Long Term Evolution (LTE). RCC's President and CEO, Mike Hunter, gave a presentation on the 4G standard to NPSTC in 2009. In June 2009, APCO, NENA and NPSTC endorsed LTE as the technology standard for the development of a nationwide interoperable broadband network for first responders.
Here are a few examples of our many projects helping our customers improve their broadband data:
Commonwealth of Pennsylvania
Since 1997, RCC has provided engineering, project management, quality assurance and system integration services for the statewide multi-agency voice and data radio and microwave system. This system serves upwards of 40,000 in the Commonwealth. More recently, RCC’s work has included a) rebanding of the 800 MHz system, b) upgrading the microwave system from circuit-switched to IP/MPLS, and c) planning the migration of Commonwealth broadband voice and data services to the new microwave network.
Commonwealth of Kentucky NG9-1-1
RCC assisted the Commonwealth through the development of a statewide plan for the implementation of Next Generation 9-1-1. This project included the development of a statewide MPLS network design linking 3 data centers and all 100 PSAPs. In addition, RCC prepared a successful grant application that resulted in more than $1 million in funding to support the rollout of the system.
Airspan Networks, Inc.
RCC completed a national WiMAX broadband wireless access system design in Costa Rica for Airspan Networks, Inc. RCC provided the design engineering that resulted in deploying a national broadband wireless access footprint. Our engineers used RCC' s ComSiteDesign engineering tool to identify the sites and coverage required to meet Airspan’s coverage objectives.
City of Philadelphia
RCC is currently assisting the City with an assessment of the existing public WiFi broadband network to determine whether the City should acquire this infrastructure. For this engagement, RCC will evaluate the equipment in place, its age and useful life, software versions, condition, as well as evaluate the estimated two dozen rooftops and tower sites that link the 4,000 access points. RCC will also conduct a business case analysis and make recommendations to the City whether to continue to use the network for free public WiFi, upgrade and re-purpose the network to support public safety and public service applications, or other alternatives.
State of California Bureau of State Audits
RCC conducted a technical evaluation and financial audit of the State’s high-speed fiber optic network linking over 200 public school districts. The backbone operates on over 1,000 miles of fiber optic cable controlled by the State via long-term indefeasible rights to use (IRUs).
Vermont State Colleges
RCC designed a statewide network linking four residential campuses, 12 non-residential community college campuses and the VSC Office of the Chancellor. This high speed, carrier-provided network will deliver data, voice and video services in support of academic and administrative applications.
