Montreal, Canada – March 17, 2010 – iBwave, the international in-building solutions provider, announced today the launch of the commercial version of its Enterprise platform. iBwave Unity serves the corporate organization as a whole with instant access to centralized, aggregated and advanced project and information repository featuring superior data mining and reporting capabilities.
With iBwave Unity, the in-building wireless data is instantly fed by Engineering and Operations during network deployment projects and is then disseminated as valuable business intelligence through a single web-based interface to multiple departments, such as Marketing, Sales and Finance.
iBwave’s Unity Enterprise platform allows to control a corporation’s indoor wireless environment by providing a unified and consolidated view of the entire in-building project portfolio, wherever they are located. iBwave Unity also helps to homogenize indoor wireless internal processes and to streamline deployment across players during the project’s lifecycle. It automates business processes and enables a collaborative project management approach that improves interoperability between operators and external system integrators during deployment of networks for overall operational productivity and efficiency.

Our platform allows for increased consistency in design files, project management and documentation to circumvent the loss of data and avoid incompatible file formats. The need for interdepartmental collaboration and data integrity is imperative,” says Mario Bouchard, President and CEO of iBwave. “Our Enterprise platform addresses interoperability challenges by streamlining the collaboration between players involved in project deployments and centralizing and archiving all data in a secure environment.”
iBwave Unity adds tremendous business value and intelligence to wireless operators and system integrators through its data mining capabilities that are leveraged into powerful metrics to make improved marketing, sales and financial decisions. Valuable KPIs such as the cost per square foot, the deployment cost per project and per region and the assessment of the equipment amortization over time can now be tracked in real-time for better financial control. Accurate and reliable predictions for future indoor wireless network expansions and upgrades can also be precisely budgeted.
“iBwave Solutions was created based on the needs to have in-building wireless design and planning automated. We have then evolved into offering a complete suite of software solutions and services to operators, system integrators and equipment manufacturers, to cover the needs of the entire value-chain from planning of wireless networks to deployment, maintenance and monitoring,” says Mario Bouchard. “Now with our Enterprise platform, we are empowering organizations to have complete control of their costs and data. Hence, an absolute control and automation of their in-building wireless data, projects and processes.”
