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.
