Richmond, IN and New York City, NY (PRWEB) August 24, 2006
Belden (NYSE: BDC), a world leader in the development of wired signal transmission products for the enterprise and industrial markets, and Extricom, the designer of the award-winning Interference-Free™ Wireless LAN System, today announced a technology partnership. This multi-year, multi-million dollar global agreement represents Belden’s strategic entry into the wireless arena. The focus of the agreement will be on developing enterprise Wi-Fi solutions, enabled by Extricom’s core technology.
“Belden is in the business of answering our customers’ signal transmission needs,” said Peter Sheehan, president of Belden Americas. “Our entry into wireless technology presents another avenue for the fulfillment of our customers’ needs, with unified wired-wireless solutions they can depend on. Extricom provides a highly differentiated technology that will be the basis for Belden’s future wireless products.”
Extricom’s patented and award-winning Interference-Free™ WLAN system represents the next generation of enterprise Wi-Fi, with a fundamental shift in architecture from “cell-planning” to a “channel blanket” topology. The technology eliminates the co-channel interference that plagues traditional WLAN systems, to deliver seamless and zero-latency mobility, robust, ‘wire-like’ client connections, and the ability to design for a guaranteed and predictable level of service for all users -- all this, without the iterative and costly RF cell-planning of traditional solutions. The result is a high-performance yet simple solution for powering the enterprise triple play of data, voice (VoWLAN), and video.
“Belden’s name is synonymous with technology innovation, and we are honored to have been selected to contribute a major piece to their wireless initiative,” said Gideon Rottem, CEO and co-founder of Extricom. “Due to Belden’s unprecedented market reach and their well-earned reputation for quality and reliability, our technologies will benefit customers worldwide.”
