UNITED STATES, 5 MARCH 2024:  Transcelestial’s footprint in the US has expanded with a new supplier agreement with Wesco International (NYSE:WCC), to introduce wireless laser communications technology (wireless lasercomms) to mobile network operators (MNOs), Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISPs), government and enterprises across North America.

Transcelestial’s proprietary wireless technology creates a highly secure invisible laser communications network between buildings, cell towers and poles without any physical wires.

“In a world where high-speed connectivity is paramount, our agreement with Transcelestial ensures that we continue to offer the most advanced and efficient wireless solutions that enable our customers to achieve their goals. Wireless laser communications are part of that future, and we’re
proud to be at the forefront with Transcelestial,” said Rick Arsenault, Vice President and General Manager of Global Service Providers, Broadband and Wireless at Wesco, a leading provider of business-to-business distribution, technology solutions and supply chain services.

Wesco’s Supplier Agreement with Transcelestial will add to Wesco’s portfolio wireless lasercomms solutions for broadband customers, expanding Transcelestial’s wireless laser technology deployment of CENTAURIs across the US.

“The US presents a unique set of challenges and opportunities when it comes to bridging the digital divide. In my time on the ground, I’ve seen everything from rural to urban WISPs, to the US government, to big telecoms struggling with deploying reliable broadband services to customers. Our partnership with Wesco is a significant stride towards ensuring that the power of wireless lasercomms reaches every corner of the country, offering a faster, more efficient alternative to traditional infrastructure,” said Mark Harnen, Sales Lead for North America at Transcelestial.
