InfiNet Wireless, a global provider of fixed broadband wireless connectivity for Internet Service Providers (ISP), video surveillance and public safety solutions, today announced that it plans to participate at GITEX Technology Week 2017.

Marking the 10th consecutive year that the company has exhibited its solutions at GITEX, InfiNet will use this years’ event to showcase its complete portfolio of point-to-point (PTP) and point-to-multipoint (PTMP) wireless solutions for ‘Smart City’ applications including homeland security, traffic management and optimization, remote environmental and health monitoring.

“There is general consensus that the Middle East is a beacon of innovation when it comes to deploying ‘Smart Cities’, but the first thing to recognize is that legacy cable infrastructures can only take any smart-city initiative up to a point. A key requirement of smart cities is the necessary accommodation of all types of users’ mobility, with hard-wired solutions severely hampering the delivery of the desired applications,” said Kamal Mokrani, Global Vice President, InfiNet Wireless. “Our journey towards the smart cities of tomorrow must be less of a sprint and more of a methodical march. Healthcare, education, environment and public safety all await the innovators. Their applications – if built on the back of a robust, flexible, responsive and reliable wireless platform – will usher in that new smart city age we have all been waiting for.”

InfiNet Wireless is uniquely positioned to deliver the robust and reliable wireless networks that can serve as the cornerstone of smart city projects, all based on three key benefits:

Higher Throughput: InfiNet Wireless provides unmatched coverage and throughput. The cost-effective PTP solutions provide an unprecedented net capacity of up to 1 Gbps over long distances, in both Line-of-Sight (LOS) and Non-Line-of-Sight (NLOS) conditions.
Best Quality/Price Ratio: Combining its advanced MIMO radio technologies with the best data management and transmission protocols available in the marketplace today, InfiNet Wireless allows its customers to benefit from a carrier-grade infrastructure for all their data requirements, supporting bandwidths from as low as 1 Mbps up to 1 Gbps on a “pay-as-you-grow” basis.
Wide Range of Frequency Bands: InfiNet Wireless carrier solutions support a wide selection of frequency bands ranging from 2.0 GHz all the way up to 6.4 GHz, all supporting advanced networking features and full Quality of Service (QoS).
Prominent among the InfiNet solutions for Smart Cities is the InfiLINK XG 1000. Launched during GITEX 2016, this product family is able to provide throughputs of up to 1 Gigabit per second over the air in 5 GHz license-free frequency bands, effectively doubling the capacity of InfiNet’s previous highest performing product, the InfiLINK XG.

“The Middle East is central to InfiNet Wireless’ growth strategy. In 2016 alone, this region outperformed most other regions of the world, growing at over 22% over the previous year. Today, it is our second biggest market after the CIS region where we started life more than 24 years ago. Despite the slowdown in several Middle East economies, we continue to see strong demand for our solutions, especially in the service provision and video surveillance market verticals. As local governments and enterprises ramp up their investment towards a smarter future, we expect to see a further increase in demand for our wireless solutions and we look forward to sharing our experience and know-how with individuals and enterprises from the whole region during GITEX 2017,” concluded Kamal.
