Gemtek Systems and Wificom Offer Joint Carrier-Grade Access Solution

Gemtek Systems and Wificom Technologies today announced a joint large-scale solution for the global Wi-Fi carrier market.

The turnkey solution combines Gemtek Systems’ broad product line - including access points, gateways, client devices, and network management software - with Wificom’s proven backend billing and service management product, the SAB Server. Both companies’ products are designed expressly for public access hot spots. The interoperability between the products is seamless and enables carriers and service providers to rapidly deploy and manage PWLAN networks.

“Giving our customers competitive advantage through the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) and the highest performance is a driving force at Gemtek Systems,” said Massimo Fatato, General Manager EMEA of Gemtek Systems. “Our WISP solution fits perfectly with Wificom’s proven SAB Server and together we offer a complete package that makes it easy for wireless service providers to deploy carrier-grade Wi-Fi hot spots quickly and affordably.”

Matthieu Merlio, Sales Manager of Wificom said, “Our SAB Server is already used with the most advanced access points and controllers. Our joint offering with Gemtek Systems adds yet another well-suited product range to the list of supported gateways. We continually offer our clients the ability to build and manage heterogeneous hotspot networks that answer the needs of the market.”

Gemtek Systems’ and Wificom Technologies’ trial systems have been established with customers in Europe, and the companies will market the joint solution through existing reseller and distributor channels.
