Lemko is delighted to congratulate Bristol Bay Cellular Partnership (BBCP) fifteen years of continued operation. BBCP originally deployed Lemko’s CDMA based Node1™ system in 2005 and has upgraded the sites to offer 2G and 3G services with roaming to a Tier1 carrier in US using Lemko’s Node2™.solution

Lemko’s unique distributed architecture provides Bristol Bay with the most economical network platform to operate in some of the most challenging locations in U.S. One of the key attributes of Lemko’s Node1™ mobile infrastructure is that there is no single point of failure in the network. The sites are deployed in very remote area where remote operation and maintenance is very critical. Lemko’s solution has successfully served customers during multiple earthquakes without any interruption, including the 7.1 magnitude earthquake in November of 2018 when other carrier had some disruptions and the most recent 7.8 magnitude earthquake in July this year.

“We have been pleased with our relationship with Lemko over the years,” said Jeff Fulton, General Manager at BBCP. “Lemko has grown with us over the years and their system has stood up to the challenges in a very difficult operating environment.”
