Excellent Indoor Wireless Coverage is Mandatory in Athletic Venues Hosting World's Largest Events

iBwave, the international provider of in-building wireless software solutions, announces today its strategic partnership with iWireless, the leading system integrator that works directly for a signal lead mobile operator for acquisition, design, installations and maintenance services in the UK. The agreement signed with iBwave allows iWireless to use iBwave Design software to better plan and design indoor wireless networks with reliable data and voice coverage in iconic athletic venues such as emerging stadiums and important indoor sport facilities in the UK.

“Wireless operators are heavily investing to upgrade their wireless network coverage and cell sites equipment in large athletic venues where some of the world’s largest events such as the Olympics, the FIFA World Cup and the popular Premier League football games are hosted,” says Ravi Mondair, Senior Project Manager at iWireless. “iBwave Design software will help us to better design and plan the wireless networks in those buildings and easily upgrade wireless equipment of existing stadiums’ cell sites. This will enable more UK mobile users to use their devices concurrently during major sporting events that often gather more than 70,000 fans at the same time.”

During the initial 10 days of the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa, mobile broadband usage has increased by 26% as mobile soccer fans connected with friends and family through mobile applications supported by smartphones such as internet, video streaming, games’ ringtones and music downloads, email and text exchanges, pictures and video messages, etc.

“We are thrilled to have our software used to design wireless coverage for such large athletic venues. It is often reported that wireless operators worldwide nowadays experience significant spikes in data usage from sports fans inside and around stadiums during major sports events such as national soccer games or international athletic events,” says Mario Bouchard, President and CEO of iBwave. “Using our iBwave Design software helps wireless operators and systems integrators to predict and optimize coverage and capacity to handle the pressure caused by simultaneous usage of extensive voice and data applications.”

This new strategic opportunity is important to iBwave since it propels the company to offer their solutions in the European market where wireless operators are increasingly realizing the importance of indoor wireless networks as a solution to support the expected exponential mobile data growth.
