WDC to Market, Sell, and Support SkyPilot's Broadband Wireless Products in Brazil


The combination of wireless technology with advanced surveillance solutions represents considerable value to SkyPilot and we are enthusiastic about working together with our new partner.

SkyPilot Networks, a leading provider of carrier-class broadband wireless networks, today announced that it has signed a distribution agreement with WDC Networks, a value added distributor based in Brazil. WDC will market, sell, and support SkyPilot's line of broadband wireless products throughout Brazil.

"SkyPilot has provided service providers around the world with cost-effective, long-range, and high-capacity wireless equipment," said Vanderlei Rigatieri, Managing Director of WDC. "Our channel partners are looking for good options to deploy robust wireless networks, and SkyPilot's solutions provide our partners with enough uniqueness and flexibility to effectively be an alternative for WiMAX."

SkyPilot's equipment not only enables wireless Internet service providers to deploy broadband Internet access and VoIP to subscribers, but also provides the wireless backhaul to enable outdoor Wi-Fi access as well as video surveillance for municipal networks.

SkyPilot's unique capabilities come from an innovative approach that combines the range and capacity of point-to-multipoint systems with the ease-of-use and resiliency of mesh systems. The SkyGateway and SkyExtender are base stations that provide point-to-multipoint connectivity to low-cost SkyConnector customer premise equipment (CPE) in the 5 GHz spectrum. These base stations also integrate a synchronous multi-hop wireless backhaul that greatly extends coverage range and increases spectral capacity. In addition, these products can be integrated with long-range Wi-Fi access points at 2.4 GHz and 4.9 GHz for mobile public safety.

"WDC Networks has a proven ability to expand our presence in Brazil and their focus in WISPs and Video Surveillance aligns with our key vertical markets," said Mauricio Meirelles, Technical Sales Manager of South America at SkyPilot. "The combination of wireless technology with advanced surveillance solutions represents considerable value to SkyPilot and we are enthusiastic about working together with our new partner."
