Yoqne’am, Israel, March 10, 2010 - Winncom Technologies, a value-added distributor of global wireless solutions, has announced a new distribution agreement with Wavion Wireless Networks for North America.  This strategic alliance will enable Winncom to provide customers with revolutionary Wi-Fi solutions utilizing Wavion’s powerful spatially adaptive beamforming technology.

Wavion’s revolutionary equipment, the WBS-2400 and WBS-5800 Wi-Fi Base Stations, utilizes digital beamforming and Space Division Multiple Access (SDMA) technology.  This unique and powerful technology allows service providers, communities, and enterprises to provide coverage for two to three times larger area than conventional access points, overcome non-line-of-sight geographical limitations, and cope effectively with interferences and indoor penetration – all leading to a 50% reduction in total cost of ownership.  Founded in 2000, Wavion continues to demonstrate its global presence, offering carrier class wireless base stations that provide the latest technology and performance to the market.
