Omnicity selects Cisco to deploy mobile broadband

Expects to increase coverage and bandwidth by moving to 4G WiMAX technology

By CBR Staff Writer

Omnicity has chosen Cisco to deploy wireless broadband service throughout its network, in a move to increase mobile broadband coverage and bandwidth.

Greg Jarman, CEO of Omnicity, said, There are only a few carrier-grade WiMAX vendors out there today, and we are excited to have chosen Cisco as our strategic equipment supplier. Its prowess in the network world is one of the best and with their BWX platform they are delivering an end-to-end Internet Protocol Next-Generation Network that delivers the best indoor coverage and portable mobile performance in the industry.

Omnicity said that it is migrating from the 802.11 wireless standard to the WiMAX 802.16e standard using Cisco’s Broadband Wireless Access (BWX) WiMAX antennas and base stations. It uses Cisco equipment at its core and has already deployed Cisco’s BWX platform in a portion of its network.

Omnicity plans to add services such as VOIP, IPTV and mobile communications using Cisco’s BWX platform to increase its number of customers and average revenue per customer. Omnicity has more than 200 tower locations and can choose appropriate location to deploy these new services.

Jarman added: “The agreement with Cisco will also give us access to Cisco’s vendor financing program, systems engineering, technical assistance and our planned stimulus grant writing. Having selected a vendor, we now turn our attention to spectrum holders around the country.
