Irish wireless broadband technology to roll out across US

25 Aug 2009

Cork technology company Azotel’s platform for enabling wireless internet service providers (WISPs) is to be rolled out across the United States.

Azotel’s SIMPLer platform to enable new and existing operators to provide reliable broadband is to be distributed across the States by ISP technology provider Solutions4ebiz.

The Azotel SIMPLer platform was first deployed in 2002. The robust solution powers broadband networks across Ireland, Europe, Africa and North America.

The system can be seamlessly integrated with any access network such as Canopy from Motorola’s wireless broadband range.

Jack Wilson, CEO, Solutions4ebiz commented: “With broadband Internet access expanding rapidly into rural America, Solutions4ebiz has identified leading suppliers such as Azotel to provide turnkey solutions for quick deployment in these broadband networks. Azotel’s leading SIMPLer solution together with its excellent record in customer service make them a perfect partner for us.”

The Azotel platform, which handles billing, helpdesk and customer accounting, is capable of delivering many advanced broadband services, for example, Voice over IP (VoIP) and allows operators to focus on subscribers rather than technology.

“Our proven SIMPLer system guarantees reliable broadband while reducing costs to the operator and simplifying the business of delivering Next Generation Network services,” John O’Hare, Azotel’s chief executive said.
