AIRCOM and iBwave Cooperate to Deliver Complete Indoor and Outdoor Coverage Solutions to Mobile Operators Globally
Leatherhead, UK and Montreal, Canada – August 24, 2010 – iBwave, the leading provider in in-building wireless software solutions, has signed a referral agreement with UK-based AIRCOM International, the leading independent network planning and optimisation consultancy. Through this partnership, AIRCOM will supplement its existing comprehensive radio network optimisation and planning solutions, which it delivers to customers worldwide, with iBwave’s comprehensive indoor planning tools and techniques.
AIRCOM will promote iBwave’s software solutions, including its software iBwave Design suite, across the entire global wireless market value chain including wireless carriers, system integrators and equipment manufacturers. The collaboration will enable AIRCOM and iBwave to deliver in-building network coverage and capacity to mobile operators across major cities and urban centres. This will help generate return on investment for existing network CAPEX through the profitable delivery of new and existing services.
“Mobile operators face an ongoing challenge ensuring sufficient network coverage and capacity is available to deliver a positive user experience to customers,” said Darryl Edwards, CEO of AIRCOM. “Converged indoor and outdoor coverage solutions play a key role in meeting user expectations, ensuring they receive strong mobile connectivity wherever they may be. Our partnership with iBwave further strengthens our broad existing network planning offering and gives us more flexibility to evolve with the changing needs of mobile users wishing to access mobile services indoors.”
“We are very proud of this new partnership with AIRCOM. We strongly believe that the new collaboration is not only in the interests of both parties, but also highly advantageous to global mobile operators.
