Aperto Networks Sponsors License-Free Wireless IP Series; Six-City Workshop Offers Small and Large Service Providers Better Customer Reach and an Increase in Revenues

Apr 23, 2001, 01:00 ET from Aperto Networks

    MILPITAS, Calif., April 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Aperto Networks, a developer of
 second-generation fixed broadband wireless access systems, today announced it
 will be participating in the 2001 License-Free Wireless IP Series.  The
 six-city tour, which begins on May 11th in Arlington, Va., addresses wireless
 network requirements in the license-free spectrum.
     The License-Free Wireless IP Series is produced by Shorecliff
 Communications, the leading media company serving the fixed broadband wireless
 industry, and publishers of Broadband Wireless Business magazine.  "Our 2001
 program comes on the heels of the first successful Wireless IP series," said
 series director and executive vice president of Shorecliff Communications,
 Timothy Downs.  "Each regional workshop offers technology professionals in the
 ISP, CLEC, independent telecommunication and enterprise industry segments
 practical and useful information from real-world wireless deployments.  It
 will include business planning, wireless fundamentals, network design,
 performing site surveys, installing and testing access points, installing
 client sites, and supporting the wireless network.  We are excited about
 Aperto's participation as Signature Sponsor in this year's License Free
 Wireless IP Series."
     "We chose to be more deeply involved in our second year in the series
 reflecting our focus on delivering a fixed broadband wireless architecture for
 mass-market scale, and we believe this year's market conditions make
 license-free spectrum even more attractive for service providers to consider
 in their mix," said Alan Menezes, Aperto's vice president of marketing.  "In
 these workshops, we will address providers' requirements for a solution that
 demands dynamic per-subscriber link optimization, QoS for multi-service
 delivery, and interference mitigation and management for multi-cell
 deployment.  The U-NII (Unlicensed National Information Infrastructure) band
 can be a very practical solution to the demands of CLECs, IXCs and ILECs
 either as the primary broadband access solution or a complement to existing
 wireline offerings."
     The IEEE recently approved the WirelessHUMAN(TM) (Wireless High-Speed
 Unlicensed Metropolitan Area Networks) project, a new initiative within the
 IEEE 802.16 Working Group on Broadband Wireless Access that will address "the
 explosive growth of providing data services in the license-exempt spectrum."
 Aperto representatives chair the 802.16a Medium Access Control (MAC) Task
 Group and serve as secretary of the 802.16 Working Group.
     Shorecliff's License-Free tour will visit the cities of Arlington, Va., on
 May 11th; Tampa Bay, Fla., on May 24th; St. Louis, Mo., on July 9th; Dallas,
 Texas on August 8th; Seattle, Wash., on August 13th; and Irvine, Calif. on
 September 7th.  For additional information on the series as well as specific
