Altai Technologies will officially unveil the latest addition to its WiFi portfolio—the A8-i Super WiFi (News - Alert) Base Station—at the 2011 GSMA Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on Feb 14-17 . In addition, it will also showcase its full series of its Super WiFi equipment as well as applications for different vertical markets.
Its flagship product, the A8 Super WiFi base station, is being deployed with various 3G, CDMA and GSM mobile systems globally for 3G data offloading and city-wide WiFi networks and is considered a gold mine for service operators. It is mainly deployed in outdoor environments and provides extensive coverage and extends the existing WiFi signal coverage by another additional 500 meters. This is because it has the ability to minimize the interference effect of other signals in the unlicensed frequency spectrum.
In addition, as the A8-i is an all-in-one multi-beam antenna array, super WiFi base station in a single enclosure, it provides 360 degree signal coverage up to three times the range and 10 times the coverage-per-site, as traditional access points eliminate the RF cabling.
Although it is generally deployed outdoors, its compact design makes it ideal for indoor use also. Operators have a distinct advantage and edge over their competitors as they can not only quickly expand their network but can also reduce operating costs. Service operators can generate immediate revenue and telecom operators and wireless Internet service providers can provide a cost-effective, easy-to-install wireless broadband solution.
The Altai Super WiFi Solution has been proven in both urban and rural applications and has been widely used in vertical markets in over 60 countries and it claims that to date, no other high capacity long range wireless solution can match Altai's applications and solutions.
In a related news release, Altai Technologies (News - Alert) announced the launch of the A8-Ei Super WiFi Base Station at the CommunicAsia (News - Alert) 2010, Singapore Expo Jun 15-18.
