Stimulating Broadband Tech: Connexion Technologies Selects BelAir Networks Wi-Fi for Broadband Infrastructure Deployments

Technology Amenity Company Deploys BelAir Networks High-Performance Wireless to Enable High-Speed Internet and Telephone Services

Business Wire via 09/15/09 Chicago - BelAir Networks, the market share leader in service provider WLAN / Wi-Fi mesh, announced today it has been selected by Connexion
Technologies, the country’s premier technology amenity company, for community-wide deployments throughout the U.S.

BelAir Networks patented switched architecture, easy to use network management and scalability proven in North America’s largest Wi-Fi networks were key factors in the selection.

“We’re not a service provider but we provide the broadband infrastructure that service providers use to reach their customers in the communities we serve, so our networks have to be carrier-grade and easy for us to centrally manage. That’s why we went with BelAir Networks”, said Geoff Fair, Executive Vice President of Engineering for Connexion Technologies.

“We’re known for our FTTH networks, so when we opt for a wireless alternative the performance stakes are very high and BelAir Networks has really delivered.”
A combination of BelAir200 quad-radio and BelAir100 dual-radio Wi-Fi nodes are deployed throughout each community to deliver high capacity, low-latency, QoS-enabled broadband access to each home. BelAir Networks nodes interconnect with each other via a high-performance switched architecture delivering higher performance and scalability than any other mesh networking alternative.

Ease of management is assured through the feature rich BelView Network Management System that leverages the latest GIS-based mapping and GPS information to facilitate the set-up and management of Wi-Fi networks of all sizes, scaling to support up to 20,000 wireless nodes.

“Connexion Technologies is a leader in the deployment of Fiber to the Home networks so we’re pleased that when they decided to go wireless in some of their communities, BelAir Networks performance, manageability and scalability has proven to be such a great fit.” said Ron Robinson, Executive Vice President, Global Sales at BelAir Networks.

“Working with Tier 1 service providers, BelAir Networks has earned a reputation for delivering high-performance, easy to manage wireless solutions for both large-scale and multi-site networks.”
