VCom Inc. and ARRIS said their jointly developed 700 MHz broadband wireless platform has won acceptance by the Rural Utility Service (RUS) under the RUS Broadband Loan Program.

The VCom-ARRIS DOCSIS 2.0-based fixed access system is comprised of ARRIS' Cadant C3 cable modem termination system and WM450 modems, and VCom's 700 MHz Broadband Wireless Internet Network (BWIN).

"Our BWIN solution excels when catering specifically to residents and businesses in rural areas where the Broadband Loan Program is key to implementing this technology," said VCom Vice President Richard Blenkinsop, in a release.
