HONG KONG, Aug. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Altai Technologies Limited today announces that a tier-one mobile operator in China has selected Altai Super WiFi to improve wireless connectivity in the major cities of China following successful deployments in rural China.     

In addition to the wireless network rollouts in rural China, the mobile operator realized that the growth in wireless data usage was significantly outpacing voice usage growth.  In view of this, the operator has planned to expand its wireless network in major cities so as to capture this huge business opportunities.   

"The mobile operator recognized the upsurge in wireless data usage as a significant opportunity to increase its revenue," said Dr. Bill Wong, the acting CEO of Altai Technologies.  "To cope with the increasingly bandwidth hungry subscribers, especially in the urban areas, it is very costly for service providers to upgrade the capacity of the mobile networks.  By integrating Altai's Super WiFi technology with the existing infrastructure, the operator is able to offload heavy data traffic usage from its 3G/2.5G networks to its supplementary WiFi network.  Altai provides a cost-effective and highly scalable WiFi solution for data offload as well as network capacity expansion."

Altai's complete end-to-end 3G data offload solution enables mobile operators to increase their bandwidth immediately at minimal cost by co-locating Altai Super WiFi base stations with their existing 3G/2G cellular sites to provide large area outdoor WiFi network.    

The Altai Super WiFi Solution has been deployed in many rural areas throughout China such as Liaoning, Guizhou, Sichuan, Shandong, Fujian, etc. in the past few years.
