Carriers and Municipalities can Increase WiFi Street Coverage with Less CapEx and OpEx

GITEX 2014, Dubai, UAE - October 14, 2014 - EION Wireless, a global manufacturer of licensed and unlicensed broadband wireless access and backhaul products headquartered in Ottawa, Canada announced Street WiFi technology for WiFi coverage of urban streetscapes. This purpose- specific Street WiFi product delivers at least 50% cost savings to the Carriers and Municipalities compared to WiFi products available in the market for street hot spot deployments.

Street WiFi is an outdoor 802.11 WiFi hotspot designed for optimal coverage with innovative antenna signal pattern that provides exceptional coverage along the street without wasting power in off- street coverage. The unique circular polarization of the integrated antenna means that end user devices such as laptops, smart phones and tablets do not need to be ‘aimed’ at the Street WiFi access point. Combining with higher output power it reduces the number of units to be deployed reducing CapEx and OpEx for operators and Carriers for the same coverage compared to the current competitive offering in the market.

These days, indoor WiFi has become almost a necessity and businesses and community centres are expected to provide patrons with WiFi access. EION knows that outdoor WiFi is quickly becoming popular and has developed technology exclusively designed for WiFi coverage to the streets.

Applications include outdoor WiFi coverage, municipal free-WiFi zones, outdoor campus WiFi for schools and hospitals, WiFi hotspots in airports, trains stations and bus stations or when facing coverage design challenges with traditional omni-antenna based WiFi solutions. The product is fully integrated for simple outdoor installation on a pole, wall or telephone pole. Street WiFi variants are available in 2.4 GHz, 5.8 GHz or dual-band operation.

WiFi is everywhere and we think that more and more people will want to use it not only indoors, but outdoors as well. It is not only a great technology for municipal areas for WiFi access, but can be crucial for public safety at bus stations, campuses and school zones.” said Hassan Abdelghany, Vice President, Sales, Middle East and Africa of EION Wireless.

As part of this announcement ,announcement, EION has the following information available:

  • Street WiFi Data Sheet

StarCommander a Cloud Based Management System for Effective Management of BYOD Devices, Pre-Paid Cards and Free Public Wi-Fi Zones

OTTAWA Canada – December 9, 2013 - EION Wireless, a global manufacturer of licensed and unlicensed broadband wireless access and backhaul products headquartered in Ottawa, Canada is pleased to announce the release of StarCommander - a powerful cloud-based controller compatible with 3rd party access points and EION’s StarAccess products. EION’s StarCommander is a highly scalable system designed to serve the needs of internet service providers, enterprises, schools, hospitals, university campuses, hotels, airports, conference centers and public buildings. StarCommander gives operators the ability to manage subscribers through pre-paid cards and create free public Wi-Fi zones with a captive portal page, or permit secure access to permanent users and BYOD devices.

EION’s controller has been selected by IceNet Wireless and the Government of Newfoundland & Labrador to form a critical component of the ICES - Internet, Commerce and Entertainment Solution. The system manages user access to the province-wide Wi-Fi network as part of the Rural Broadband Initiative (RBI) program. The advanced wireless network is delivering broadband internet access to remote communities across the province. StarCommander is enabling the authentication for permanent subscribers on the network, as well as free public Wi-Fi hotspots in community centres.

“IceNet Wireless is taking an innovate approach to providing broadband access by deploying a giant Wi-Fi hotspot to rural areas of the province,” said Wayne Campbell Squires, Electronic Centre the primary implementation partner for the Rural Broadband Network in Newfoundland. “With the EION controller, IceNet Wireless is able to control access for monthly subscribers as well as setting up temporary access for tourists.”

EION’s StarCommander System has a user-friendly web-desktop interface that allows highly flexible management of vouchers, users and devices. StarCommander is well suited for the management of free public Wi-Fi, paid Wi-Fi Hotspots and private corporate networks. With the voucher system for temporary access, network operators can create subscriber pre-paid services cards, which can be sold at kiosks to drive additional revenue into the network.

“What we are offering is an inherently scalable, cloud-based solution for managing WLAN networks. By carefully eliminating bottlenecks in the network architecture, StarCommander can grow to a very large size because the processing is distributed to the individual access points,” said Gerry Backs, SVP Business Development and Sales. “The powerful product features available with the controller open up brand new business models for our service provider networks as well as an added layer of network security for our enterprise and corporate WLAN operators.”

StarCommander is compatible with EION’s StarAccess Wi-Fi access point and compatible 3rd party Wi-Fi access points. Because the data-plane and control-plane is separated, EION solution is inherently scalable. Each StarAccess node controls the bandwidth allocation to the connected users after receiving instructions from the controller, avoiding a large bottleneck. Due to this scalability, networks can be designed with just a single access point or thousands for nationwide Wi-Fi coverage.

OTTAWA Canada – October 28, 2013 - EION Wireless, a global manufacturer of licensed and unlicensed broadband wireless access and backhaul products headquartered in Ottawa is pleased to announce that it will be presenting its Wireless Surveillance Support Solution at the 2013 CADSI SecureTech conference and tradeshow at the Ottawa Convention Centre on October 29 & 30. The EION StarAccess 2000 provides an extended three-dimensional WiFi “hot-spot” engineered for high reliability communications with small unmanned aerial vehicles (micro UAVs) in flight and other wireless security devices such as robots for handling suspicious packages, wide area multilateralization (WAM) systems for aircraft detection and fixed and mobile video cameras. The EION Wireless Surveillance Support Solution is ideal for real-time high definition video transfer on campus and at altitudes up to 400 feet.

High sensitivity receivers on the StarAccess 2000 support line-of-sight communications in excess of three kilometers providing service coverage of more than fourteen square kilometres. The StarAccess 2000 can be quickly deployed in the field providing interconnectivity to multiple devices or can be integrated into the fixed wireless communications coverage of critical or sensitive infrastructure. Line-of-sight backhaul from the “hot-spot” to broadband communications systems can be provided through EION’s 5.x GHz unlicensed StarPlus 5300 or on licensed frequencies using the Star4G mobility platform. All EION 5000 level systems are provided with ruggedized IP67 enclosures for harsh outdoor environments and AES encryption for secure data transfer.

The EION Surveillance Support Solution was demonstrated on October 4 at the Canadian Forces Connaught Ranges in Ottawa, Canada in association with the “Operation Foundation Thunder” fund raising event to support military families. The technology collaboration showcased the capabilities of several Ottawa region firms involved in the emerging micro UAV aerial surveillance market. The demonstration included a microUAV provided by Zariba Security (www.zaribasecurity.com) of Ottawa. Video and high resolution image data was managed using data aggregation and analysis tools developed and provided by FocalRecon (www.focalrecon.ca) of Ottawa. Real-time UAV video, data and voice (radio & telephone) was shared across multiple communications protocols and emergency responder agencies in Canada and the USA using Mutualink’s Interoperable Response And Preparedness Platform (I.R.A.P.P.) jointly provided by Inter-Op Canada of Montréal and Valley Associates of Ottawa. The demonstration was organized and coordinated by Information Systems Architects and Tri-Wolf Security.

The microUAV flew twenty-five minute missions under guided and automatic control at a maximum height of 400 feet and a maximum range of 2 kilometres capturing and relaying video and still image data of people, structures and terrain from a variety of elevations. The microUAV has a number of advanced navigation features that allowed it to be flown with minimal instruction by various Canadian Forces, police and civilian guests.

The EION StarAccess 2000 Surveillance Support Solution is the latest in a series of security and surveillance solutions provided by EION that have included robotic handling of suspicious baggage at airports with Ottawa-based robot developer Provectus Solutions, fixed and mobile campus security video deployed on the Algonquin College campus, airspace monitoring for the Vancouver Olympics with NAV Canada and border security support for several foreign governments. EION has recently been awarded a Canadian government-wide standing offer with the RCMP.
