Santa Clara, CA (PRWEB) February 6, 2009
SkyPilot Networks, a leading provider of carrier-class broadband wireless networks, today announced that it has signed a distribution agreement with SIR.tel, a specialist distributor based in Italy. SIR.tel will market, sell, and support SkyPilot's line of broadband wireless products throughout Italy.
"SkyPilot has provided service providers around the world with cost-effective, long-range, and high-capacity wireless equipment," said Andrea Gallini, product manager of SIR.tel. "Our channel partners are always looking for the best 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 and advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) for smart grid 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.
"SIR.tel has a proven ability to expand our presence in Italy and their focus in surveillance aligns with one of our key vertical markets," said Anthony Fulgoni, EMEA Business Development Director at SkyPilot.
