SkyGateway

Our channel partners are always looking for the best mesh wireless products available, and SkyPilot's solutions provide our partners with enough uniqueness and flexibility to effectively enter new broadband wireless markets.

SkyPilot Networks, a leading provider of carrier-class broadband wireless networks, today announced that it has signed a distribution agreement with ROOTS Communications, a specialist distributor based in Singapore with subsidiaries in Malaysia and China. ROOTS will market, sell, and support SkyPilot's line of broadband wireless products throughout Asia Pacific.

"SkyPilot has provided service providers around the world with cost-effective and scalable mesh wireless equipment," said Mr Koh Nai Lip, Vice President of ROOTS. "Our channel partners are always looking for the best mesh wireless products available, and SkyPilot's solutions provide our partners with enough uniqueness and flexibility to effectively enter new broadband wireless markets."

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 to combining point-to-point backhaul, mesh, and a point-to-multipoint base station into a single solution. 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.

"ROOTS has a proven ability to expand our presence in Asia Pacific and their focus in surveillance aligns with one of our key vertical markets," said Joshua Mony, Senior Director of Business Development for Asia Pacific 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."
