Wificom Technologies announced today it is teaming with Colubris Networks Inc., a global provider of 802.11 (Wi-Fi) wireless networking solutions for operators of large-carrier hotspot and enterprise networks, to deliver integrated public wireless LAN (PWLAN) solutions to service providers worldwide.
The integrated Wi-Fi access devices and back-end system provide a turnkey solution for service providers deploying and managing PWLAN networks. The solution merges Colubris Networks` award-winning Wi-Fi access devices with Wificom`s SAB Server, the complete backend billing and service management system for broadband Internet service providers.
Wificom`s SAB Server integrates service creation, billing, rating, roaming, customer care, reporting, device independent content delivery as well as value-added location-based services. With the joint solution, service providers will centrally manage hotspot services provided through Colubris Networks access devices.
“Our mutual customers demand a highly interoperable solution that encompasses best-in-class systems and services,” said Patrick Deroy, Colubris Networks Director of EMEA sales. “Colubris Networks is excited to be working with Wificom and its SAB Server to create a carrier-grade backend solution that is plug-and-play with the Colubris Networks service provider product line. This partnership provides our customers with a complete solution based on the marketplace`s best products.”
Sofia Flood, Sales and Marketing Director at Wificom, noted that Colubris Networks, like Wificom, has a strong presence in European and Asian markets. “Wificom`s strategy is to provide systems to centrally manage PWLAN services built by the best access points and controllers and Colubris Networks is an ideal partner supporting this strategy,” she said.
Wificom and Colubris Networks will distribute the joint solution through existing value-added reseller channels.
