AIRCOM and iBwave Partner for in-Building Network Optimisation

February 17, 2009, Barcelona, Spain - AIRCOM International, the leading independent network planning and optimisation consultancy, announces today a partnership with iBwave Solutions, the leader of in-building wireless standard software, to deliver improved in-building network planning and design solutions to operators across the globe. 

The deal will see iBwave's unique in-building wireless network design software integrated into AIRCOM's ASSET solution, the industry's leading network optimisation tool.  It will allow AIRCOM to offer all-encompassing radio network planning and optimisation services, adding enhanced in-building functionality into its ENTERPRISE tool suite. 

"In-building coverage is fast becoming one of the most important considerations for network operators, so we needed to find a best in class solution provider to help service our customers and provide seamless in-building planning as part of the radio network design," says Margaret Rice-Jones, CEO of AIRCOM International.  "It was clear that iBwave was the company to help achieve this, so we look forward working with them to strengthen our position as the in-building industry's network solution provider of choice."

iBwave is an international in-building software company that specialises in providing unique in-building network planning and design solutions to more than 150 customers including operators, integrators and equipment vendors across five continents.  The deal will extend AIRCOM's solution portfolio, allowing both companies to offer an integrated network solution to their combined customer base.

Commenting on the shared interface Mario Bouchard, CEO and President of iBwave says that "The mobile operator community is a key target market for iBwave and this integration is our commitment with our partners to deliver best of breed indoor and outdoor wireless networks."

The integration between iBwave's software and AIRCOM's ENTERPRISE is complete and the new network optimisation indoor/outdoor feature will be available upon RF-vu's new 4.2 version that is planned to be released on February 23, 2009.
