RoamAD and Adino Telecom partner for Indian Wi-Fi growthDecember 11th, 2007 - 6:33 pm ICT by admin
Mumbai, Dec 11 (ANI-Business Wire India): 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.
Metro Wi-Fi, deployed in the right places, is the fastest way to deliver easily-accessible, cost-effective, wireless broadband to an urban population.
“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, which is located in urban areas, is increasingly armed with the latest laptops and Wi-Fi enabled cell phones and gadgets. Couple these facts with the population density and you quickly realise that India’s urban areas are perfect for metro Wi-Fi deployments,” 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 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. (ANI)
