Lemko is delighted to congratulate TelAlaska’s 11 years of continued cellular operation. TelAlaska deployed Lemko’s Node1™ and based system to offer cellular services beginning in 2009.

Lemko’s unique distributed architecture provides TelAlaska 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 which is very critical in a region like Alaska. The sites are deployed in very remote areas where on-site maintenance is a huge challenge as only three of the 24 Alaskan communities that TelAlaska’s serve are accessible by road. TelAlaksa has been using Lemko Node2 solution to enable roaming functionality with a Tier1 carrier in USA.

“Lemko Solution has helped us to provide a dependable and affordable cellular service to our customers in the state of Alaska including many remote towns. The reliability of the Lemko solution is critical as many of our sites are in remote areas where travel is expensive and weather dependent.” said David J. Goggins, President and General Manager at TelAlaska.

Lemko’s Node1™, is an IP software solution that fully distributes the core functions of a cellular system pushing it to the networks’ edge co-locating it with the cellular base stations. Its Linux based mobile infrastructure delivers tremendous cost savings due to reductions in various operational costs. The Lemko Node2™ signaling gateway enables roaming services to over 120 mobile networks worldwide.
