iBwave Signs Global Agreement with Industry Leading In-Building Equipment Vendor LGC Wireless
iBwave Design becomes critical tool in in-building market strategy
Las Vegas, NV June 11th, 2007 – iBwave, the industry-leading provider of in-building wireless planning and design software, is pleased to announce its expanded relationship with LGC Wireless, the leader in specialized wireless coverage and capacity solutions.
In a signed global license agreement, LGC Wireless USA joins its International counterpart, a long-time user of iBwave’s in-building software iBwave Design, by standardizing all in-building wireless designs using one software tool. With the agreement, LGC engineers worldwide will use the same iBwave Design file format and new propagation module for all designs with the ability to share them more efficiently and to speed time-to-market. Speed and efficiency are critical success factors in the competitive in-building environment today. Industry drivers like the ongoing demand for increased coverage, newly auctioned spectrum and the rise in WiMax rollouts keep vendors looking for ways to streamline processes as business grows. iBwave Design currently supports LGC’s InterReach family of Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) products, including Unison and Fusion, which offer industry-leading performance for superior in-building wireless coverage.
Mario Bouchard, iBwave President, states, “We are excited to work with LGC Wireless globally and value their feedback as our software evolves with the in-building market. Such an agreement validates our goal in providing a solution complete with planning, design, prediction, provisioning and equipment selection that allows our customers to focus on their core competencies while iBwave delivers productivity tools.”
LGC Wireless’ InterReach® Unison and InterReach Fusion® systems provide strong and pervasive in-building cellular coverage for buildings of all sizes. Featuring a unique active architecture that uses distributed hubs and low-cost standard cabling to deliver uniformly high performance at every remote antenna with real-time, end-to-end monitoring and management, Unison and Fusion systems support any voice or data service on any carrier frequency. LGC’s in-building wireless systems enable reliable wireless services in the world’s major airports, subways, and commercial buildings.
LGC Wireless President and CEO Ian Sugarbroad adds, “iBwave Design software has been an important component of our growth, so the decision to extend our use of iBwave Design on a global basis was not difficult. We have seen results and accuracy increase throughout many project designs and recognize the importance of the software in our operations.”
LGC will add over twenty new iBwave Design users in the US with more planned abroad in the near future.
