By Cambium Networks

PORTLAND, Maine (08/13/2019).  Tilson, a national network deployment and IT professional services firm, is honored to have been selected for the second year to provide engineering and wireless network services to enable timing, medical support and public engagement at the 2019 Beach to Beacon Race. In 2018, Tilson effectively designed and delivered critical communications support to administer maximum network coverage to the park’s finish line, a landmark area with little infrastructure present to provide commercial broadband. Tilson will work alongside Cambium Networks, a leading global provider of wireless network solutions.

“Tilson’s network services team is comprised of highly-experienced engineers and technicians giving us the edge in planning, implementing and servicing complex communications networks” states Tilson CEO, Joshua Broder. “We continue to push the limits on new technology and our team is committed to bringing creative and unique solutions to each project.”

“Operators need reliable connectivity to the edge of the network, and wireless is a proven cost-effective solution that can be rapidly deployed,” said Derek Underwood Vice President of North America sales for Cambium Networks. “Cambium Networks’ wireless fabric of connectivity technology provides a portfolio of technologies that enable networks to be tailored for specific needs, just as we have with ePMP™ wireless broadband providing the wide area distribution network and cnPilot™ enterprise outdoor Wi-Fi for the Beach to Beacon race.”

Founded in 1998, the Beach to Beacon race attracts top New England athletes from around the world, featuring roughly 6,500 participants, 800 volunteers and thousands of spectators. The 2019 beneficiary is The Telling Room, Maine’s only youth-focused literary arts organization, offering innovative, effective and often life-changing writing programs. After reaching nearly 100 schools, 70 towns and more than 4,000 children each year, the charity’s instructional programs have earned regional and national recognition.
