Airimba Subsidiary Leads Strong MDU Market Presence 03/29/2011 San Francisco - AireWire, Inc. and WindChannel Communications announced today that they have concluded a merger agreement to create an expanded and diversified portfolio of network integration, outsourcing, and operations services. Operating from headquarters in Atlanta, the firm to be called AireWire, Inc. will be a leading regional systems integrator and network operator in the Southeast.

WindChannel CEO Jim Szyperski added, ”AireWire’s expertise in designing and building large wireless backhaul networks directly complements WindChannel’s more localized wireless applications for municipalities and retail Internet users.
