VeriLAN, Inc., an Oregon-based wireless service provider, has become one of the first companies in the to install an enterprise metropolitan wireless backbone. The NLOS (Non-Line-Of-Sight) wireless service, using 802.16a-like gear, is expected to open new opportunities for broadband Internet access throughout the region and may be the first service available commercially in the United States.

Industry backers such as Intel believe 802.16a may revolutionize high-speed wireless communications. VeriLAN's service has a commanding view of the region, installed on the 1000 foot KGW-TV tower, itself some 1,150 feet above sea level on Portland's Sylan Hills. VeriLAN provides cost/effective bandwidth ranging from 256Kbps and going all the way up to 24Mbps for businesses using our service.

"The hardware was installed in December 2003, and we have been testing the coverage area and throughput of the network," said Steven Schroedl, President of VeriLAN Inc.. "During the first week of 2004, Portland suffered from a severe snow and ice storm. Our coverage was rock-solid with up to 2" of ice on our antennas. The harsh conditions that we tested in makes it easy to tell potential clients that we can serve them in all weather conditions."

"Talk about bandwidth!," exclaimed Raj Savara, Executive Vice President of VeriLAN, Inc. "The radios offer much higher bandwidth with full duplex operation. The 256-bit encrypted channels offer customers better security than any other radio, or copper for that matter " In addition, "Our product offers Forward Error Correction, which corrects any bit errors in the transport."

VeriLAN has the capabilities to provide up to 24 Mb with security, and QOS (Quality of Service) tiered service management through CIR/MBR (Committed Information Rate / Maximum Burst Rate), with multi-layered security, making our solution one of the most secure networks available in the market today.
