Motorola, BelAir Networks partner on cable Wi-Fi
Motorola Mobility today announced an agreement with BelAir Networks to deliver its Wi-Fi portfolio to cable operators worldwide.
According to a press release, the agreement will give Motorola access to BelAir Networks' portfolio of Wi-Fi access points, pico cellular technology and Wi-Fi network provisioning and management solutions.
The partnership will allow cable operators using Motorola Cable Wi-Fi solutions to offer their subscribers on-the-go broadband services that are an extension of their in-home broadband services and experience.
Additionally, pico cellular technology provides operators access to new revenue streams as the explosion in mobile broadband traffic leaves commercial wireless service providers looking for cost effective means to increase 3G and 4G mobile network capacity.
The Cable Wi-Fi portfolio supports virtual Wi-Fi access points that allow cable operators to offer branded Wi-Fi services to their service provider partners using a single access point.
The Motorola Cable Wi-Fi portfolio can be deployed in strand mount, pedestal and underground locations. The agreement includes access to the entire BelAir portfolio, with initial focus on the CW100SNE for cable network applications, the CW20E for indoor applications, CW20EO solution designed for outdoor wireless mesh applications and CWView, an advanced provisioning and management tool.
