Virtua UK Implements iBwave’s In-Building Design Software

Virtua UK Ltd Implements iBwave’s In-Building Design Software to Meet Growing Demand for Indoor Networks. 60 to 80% of Voice Calls and Especially Data use is Generated Inside Buildings.

Montreal, Canada & United Kingdom – April 20, 2010 iBwave and Virtua UK Ltd have signed an agreement, making iBwave the in-building wireless solutions provider to Virtua UK Ltd.

Virtua UK Ltd, a leading player in the GSM market will extend its use of iBwave’s RF Design and planning software in its Low-Power GSM deployment business.

iBwave, president and CEO, Mario Bouchard: “We are proud to help Virtua design and develop world leading systems.  As mobile networks shift indoors, with 60 to 80% of voice calls and especially data use generated inside buildings, iBwave Design will help Virtua automate their process and increase proficiency in the provision of optimal indoor wireless coverage.”

Virtua is leading the field in the deployment of GSM systems using the recently released GSM spectrum specific to in-building systems.  Using this technology, major UK businesses are able to improve mobility and costs by using mobile phones and smartphones to communicate with each other across their own network. Costs are reduced while these deployments give customers fantastic network coverage in their premises.

The radio spectrum used for this deployment is restricted in its power output and customers need to have the guarantee that the usage of such system is contained within their premises. With iBwave Design software, Virtua can guarantee optimum locations and power of the GSM technology while  securing the lowest cost to its customers.

Virtua, CEO, Andy Watts: “We chose iBwave as our design and planning automated software tool because our GSM deployments need to be perfect. Our customers depend heavily on these systems to run their businesses and we wanted to do everything we could to establish robust systems. Our team includes the best radio designers and we wanted them to have the best tools to efficiently do their job. Choosing iBwave is part of that commitment.”

The new agreement with Virtua will further help iBwave to establish themselves as the in-building wireless solutions provider in the UK while ensuring steady growth in the European market.
