Exatel S.A. announced today that it will deliver innovative WiMAX services to business, municipal, and other users using software and equipment from Proximetry, the technology leader in real-time wireless network and performance management solutions, and equipment from Tranzeo Wireless Technologies Inc. (TSX: TZT), a premier manufacturer of high-performance wireless broadband solutions. The next generation WiMAX network architecture uses Tranzeo’s carrier-class TR-WMX-3.5-pBS 3.5GHz pico Base Stations and TR-WMX-3.5 Subscriber Units both powered by Proximetry’s AirSyncTM intelligent provisioning and management software to control and manage the users, devices, and services on the network. AirSync has an open architecture that can be extended and integrated to support other wireless and wireline elements in the carrier network. Exatel’s initial network rollout will focus on three major cities in Poland with deployments in over 20 cities by the end of 2008.

“As a long time supporter of WiMAX we have had many investments in pilot solutions, and $1500 per sector for a next generation WiMAX solution gives Exatel much more flexibility in deploying new customer services,” said Pawel Olech, vice president of the management board for Exatel. “The AirSync-enabled pico base station means we can offer differentiated services for increased revenues, while also enjoying advanced manageability of the network. The result is a much improved and highly scalable business model that gives us the ability to compete aggressively for business, municipal, and other customers in the market.”

The breakthrough price, performance of the Tranzeo WiMAX solution coupled with AirSync enables carriers to deploy a next generation WiMAX network with more robust network coverage and throughput, and optimized service and application performance. As a result, more bandwidth can be immediately directed to key users and geographies as the network scales up. Exatel’s innovative WiMAX service model takes full advantage of AirSync’s highly granular service controls so users and their applications are guaranteed to get the performance when and where needed.

Combining Proximetry’s AirSync intelligent provisioning and management software with Tranzeo’s carrier class network equipment provides a comprehensive, turn-key, and low-cost WiMAX solution. This combined solution is ideally suited for next generation WiMAX service offerings where different user types, applications, and devices each need varying degrees of guaranteed quality of service (QoS). AirSync enables the Tranzeo system to be autonomously provisioned and service levels managed according to network policies and the real-time use and behavior of the network. This dynamic approach to managing network performance enables Exatel to take an innovative position in offering new services to its clients.
"Exatel exemplifies a new breed of carrier that will offer differentiated, next generation WiMAX services,” said Tracy Trent, Proximetry’s chief executive officer. “And to do that, they need a new type of base station that is low-cost and rapidly deployable, while also having the intelligence to manage all the competing applications, services, users, and devices on the network in real time.”

Proximetry’s AirSync continually monitors and optimizes all wireless connections in the network to enable maximum throughput, services, and end user satisfaction. This approach of active monitoring, and real-time adjustments, assures that appropriate service levels are always met for all authorized users. The result is a wireless network with the performance, scalability, and reliability typically found in carrier-class wireline networks. AirSync’s intelligent provisioning aligns network resources to user and device priorities, makes dynamic bandwidth allocations to meet changing user demands, and uses predictive routing and optimal resource configuration to maximize throughput and other performance parameters. Dynamic and flexible configuration of network resources and assured bandwidth allocation are essential ingredients in delivering quality-of-service in today's increasingly complex wireless networks.
