TEL-AVIV, Israel, December 8 /PRNewswire/ -- RADWIN (http://www.radwin.com), a leading provider of Backhaul and Broadband Wireless Solutions, today announced that it has signed an agreement with KK Active, a value-added distributor based in Finland and part of the Swedish Lagercrantz Group, a multi-million dollar company listed on the Nordic Stock Exchange. KK Active will distribute RADWIN's wireless broadband systems in Finland and provide full product training and support to customers.
RADWIN provides wireless broadband radios in the sub-6GHz range. The company's solutions deliver native TDM + Ethernet on a single link with up to 100 Mpbs throughput, at ranges of up to 120 Km/75 miles. Incorporating the latest technologies and an advanced feature-set, RADWIN's point-to-point links operate in non line-of-sight and high-interference environments, challenging topographies and extreme weather conditions.
Jouni Litmanen, KK's Product Manager, stated: We believe that RADWIN's products will make a great impact in Finland because they offer the perfect mix of carrier-grade performance at truly competitive prices. The Finnish government has decreed that starting July 2010 every person in Finland shall have the right to a Broadband connection. In a large and sparsely-populated country such as Finland - this is a great challenge. We see huge potential for RADWIN's solutions to be used for last-mile connections and backhaul applications because of their cost-effective price and the ease speed in which they are deployed. Furthermore, in Finland the 5.8 GHz ETSI frequency band has recently been allocated for unlicensed radio links and RADWIN's 4 Watt output power enables achieving higher operational range and greater capacity than ever before possible in this segment.
Yaron Ziv, RADWIN's Sales Director, Europe, stated: We are excited to partner with KK Active, and believe that our radios offer a great solution to all market sectors in Finland - from telcos to private networks. With our solutions in place, carriers and service providers can extend their networks and reach rural areas more quickly and cost-effectively than ever before.
