RoamAD and Adino Telecom Partner for Indian Wi-Fi Growth
Adino Telecom will supply and integrate RoamAD’s large-scale Wi-Fi networks for the Indian market
Auckland, NEW ZEALAND–December 11, 2007–RoamAD, supplier of the most advanced converged wireless networks, today announced the signing of a partnership agreement with Adino Telecom, one of India’s most experienced wireless systems integrators.
The deal follows successful pilots of RoamAD metro Wi-Fi and highway Wi-Fi networks in the Indian cities of Pune and Bangalore.
Under the agreement, Adino Telecom will supply and integrate RoamAD networks for Internet services providers, carriers, universities and government agencies on the Indian subcontinent.
“Although India is one of the fastest growing wireless markets in the world, broadband penetration is still very low at less than 0.50%,” said Martyn Levy, CEO of RoamAD.
“There is a rapidly-emerging, tech-savvy segment of the population that is demanding improved access to broadband. This growing segment is increasingly armed with the latest laptops and Wi-Fi enabled cell phones and gadgets. Metro Wi-Fi, deployed in the right places, is the fastest way to deliver easily-accessible, cost-effective, wireless broadband to the urban population,” he added.
RoamAD’s technology is already behind a number of high-profile metro Wi-Fi and highway Wi-Fi networks around the world.
Adino Telecom now offers a full suite of RoamAD-related services to complement the needs of its customers, from site survey and network design through to deployment and integration.
“Mobility performance on the highway Wi-Fi network was seamless and exceeded our expectations,” said Mr. S. Ramchandra, COO of Adino Telecom.
“We are already seeing growing demand in India for metro Wi-Fi and we look forward to bringing RoamAD’s next generation wireless networks to the Indian market,” he added.
RoamAD supplies next-generation converged wireless networks for the city-wide Wi-Fi, highway Wi-Fi and campus markets. RoamAD networks are unmatched in flexibility, technical functionality and economics. RoamAD wireless nodes are WiMAX backhaul agnostic with upcoming support for 802.11n MIMO. RoamAD networks are remotely upgradeable and optimized to support mobile broadband data and mobile VoIP/VoWiFi. RoamAD deployed the world’s first metro Wi-Fi network in Auckland, New Zealand and the world’s first highway Wi-Fi corridor in Arizona, USA. RoamAD is a trademark of RoamAD Holdings Limited.
