Wavion, a provider of Wi-Fi technology for metro and rural areas, has extended the reach of its High Speed Internet Service into Romania by entering into a partnership with Minisoft, a metropolitan wireless network integrator based in Roman, Romania.
“We have selected Wavion for the Wi-Fi deployment due to the unmatched coverage, capacity and quality of service their base stations provide,” said Mihai Claudiu Tusac, Mayor of Mangalia, in a press release.
The company’s wide area deployment is expected to cover the entire city of Mangalia and a strip of the Black Sea Coast. Wavion’s unique and powerful base stations, with their two-way Beamforming and powerful interference immunity suite will provide the extended coverage.
As a result of the partnership with Minisoft, people with smartphones and other handheld devices in the city of Mangalia will now have access to High-speed Internet and can enjoy the features of social networking and other entertainment applications. In addition, the network also ensures municipal building connectivity.
Wavion's Beamforming technology exploits multipath signals and this ability improves the performance in Non-Line-of-Sight conditions and provides more uniform coverage with fewer dead spots.
Zeev Farkash, Wavion's EVP of sales noted that being selected by the city of Mangalia for its challenging project was testament to the added value of Wavion;s Beamforming technology to city wide deployments, where it was required to simultaneously support a large number of handheld devices.
