Yoqne’am, Israel, March  31, 2009 — Wavion™, a company transforming the Metro and Rural Wi-Fi market with a new category of Outdoor Wi-Fi Base Station, and Got-WiFi a service provider offering affordable, high speed wireless internet access in Alabama and Mississippi, announced the deployment of Wavion’s Beamforming Wi-Fi solution in the city of Pelham, Alabama. The Wavion solution is replacing an existing MikroTik solution due to its superior indoor penetration and lower cost.

Wavion’s broadband wireless solution offers a high-quality with cost-effective, easy to install and maintain wireless infrastructure. Wavion’s powerful base stations, based on spatially adaptive beamforming technology, provide extended range and throughput and enables high quality broadband wireless connectivity to standard clients. Wavion’s Wi-Fi base station triples the coverage and doubles the capacity in comparison to standard Wi-Fi Access Points (APs).

Wavion Service Pro billing and provisioning application suit, enables Got-WiFi to create and introduce new service plans, customize and brand their captive portal as well as introduce new service promotions at a click of a button. The self-care portal of the Wavion Service Pro suit provides further cost savings for Got-WiFi by allowing local and transient users to buy subscriptions and switch service plans through the portal, without the need for a manned service call center.

"Wavion has allowed us to save 45% on each base station deployment and cover a larger area with exceptional throughput,“ Said Gerald King, Founder and Co-owner of Got-WiFi. “Previously we deployed a site using 8 MikroTik access points. This deployment required three types of antennas, three radio cards, three LMR 400 cables and a power solution per access point, in equipment alone.  We replaced all this with 1 Wavion Base Station, and our customer base has since grown because of the increased system performance.“

“We are very grateful for the opportunity, presented by Got-WiFi, to prove our superior solution performance and clear cost effectiveness.” Said Eran Kaplan, Executive Vice President Sales and Marketing at Wavion “With deep indoor penetration and uniform coverage, the WBS-2400 Base Stations are the ideal broadband wireless infrastructure for residential deployments. We see this project as part of the growing demand for Wavion Wi-Fi solution in the Rural US due to the recently announced Broadband Stimulus”.
