Microsense set to deploy WiMax in India
Microsense has announced that it intends to offer WiMax solutions across the
country. It has also developed authentication and billing systems for WiMax
networks to provide services to individuals and enterprises across verticals.
Currently, Pune and Bangalore are the front-runners in providing city-wide broadband
wireless access, with services launched by the respective government authorities.
Microsense has successfully completed the RF blueprint for WiMax and metro Wi-Fi
deployment in Pune along with Intel and the Pune Municipal Corporation. The
company has also been short-listed by the Government of Karnataka as its top
vendor for the Unwire Bangalore initiative.
At the invitation of the Karnataka Government, a pilot project for providing
broadband wireless access connectivity has already been conducted at Vikasa
Soudha, a multi-storied building complex in central Bangalore.
Microsense has set up over 500 hot spots across the country. It is the countrys
largest Wi-Fi provider in the hospitality sector, with installations at over
80 premium properties both in India and abroad. Clients include Le Meridien
Hotels, Taj Group of Hotels, ITC Group of Hotels, Hyatt, The Park, Oberoi and
Café Coffee Day, among others.
Says Kailsanthan, Managing Director of Microsense, WiMax is an important
technology which is expected to have a far-reaching impact on all aspects of
telecommunications, including data applications, mobile data applications and
mobile voice communications. Microsense has already spent more than a year in
building expertise and applications for this technology. Going forward, Microsense
expects to provide professional services internationally for city-wide networks
using WiMax and Metro Wi-Fi technologies, and also provision services independently
and in partnership with telcos.
