OTTAWA, CANADA–(Marketwire -04/24/12)- Edgewater Wireless Systems Inc (TSX-V: YFI.V – News) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a channel partnership with Nomadix, a wholly owned subsidiary of DOCOMO InterTouch, to combine Edgewater Wireless’ multi-channel WiFi access points with Nomadix’s leading software for managing the quality, security and usage of public Internet access.
Edgewater Wireless and Nomadix are addressing the public access market which continues to be one of the fastest growing segments in networking, fueled by the proliferation of WiFi enabled mobile devices such as smart phones and tablets. According to In-Stat (www.instat.com, now “DisplaySearch”), the number of WiFi enabled devices is expected to grow from 500 million units to nearly 2 billion units by 2014.
Edgewater’s EAP3000 family of access points, based on its unique, WiFi compliant, multi-channel radio technology has been designed to address this significant increase in demand by enabling greater than 50 times the aggregate capacity of comparable access point equipment based on single-channel radio technology. Nomadix solutions provide seamless management for WiFi access and billing in the municipal WiFi, hospitality and hotspot markets. Over 50,000 Nomadix Service Engine (NSE) units have been shipped throughout the world.
“The NSE is specifically designed to sit at the edge of the network in industries such as real estate, hospitality, healthcare, education and metro venues, allowing the deployment of a cost effective, secure and easy to use Internet service offering,” said Fred Reeder, Nomadix chief commercial and operating officer. “Partnering with Edgewater Wireless is a win-win for both companies.”
“With their dominant market share, Nomadix is a great addition to our partner ecosystem,” said Andrew Skafel, president of Edgewater Wireless. “Addressing the needs of our Wireless Internet Service Provider (WISP) customers and strengthening our position in the rapidly growing hospitality and hotspot markets, the combined Nomadix/Edgewater solution is a clear winner.”
Edgewater Wireless is also pleased to announce that it has engaged, subject to prior TSX Venture Exchange approval, Capital Ideas Investor Relations of Toronto, Ontario to implement a comprehensive investment relations program for the Corporation. CIIR will assist Edgewater Wireless with its investor relations program, including facilitating investor awareness, providing market intelligence and research, designing corporate communications materials and generally raising the Corporation’s profile in the investment community.
