Allied Telesis, provider of secure IP/Ethernet switching solutions, has announced the formation of Allied Telesis Wireless Ltd., a division of Allied Telesis Group. The new entity incorporates the former Extricom team and the assets acquired: intellectual property, advanced technologies, product portfolio, and its established customer base. Allied Telesis Wireless was created to further enhance the networking manufacturer's existing converged wired and wireless solutions portfolio.
This Extricom product portfolio has been successfully deployed for over a decade in challenging environments such as large public venues, warehouse/logistics/industrial manufacturing facilities, schools, and hospitals throughout North America, Europe and Asia.
The unique, contention-free Extricom Channel Blanket technology will enhance Allied Telesis wireless infrastructure solutions with wire-like reliability, high throughput, seamless mobility, unparalleled noise immunity, and easier installation and maintenance than market alternatives. Complementing the existing Allied Telesis Unified Wireless Controller (UWC) and TQ series access point portfolio, the Extricom product line will deliver high-performance voice, data, video and location services with uninterrupted roaming in the most challenging high-density environments.
Seiichiro Sato, Allied Telesis director of global product marketing, said: "The formation of Allied Telesis Wireless and the launch of the Extricom product line will allow Allied Telesis to offer an unmatched, complete portfolio of wireless and wired LAN solutions to our customers. This important development marks our ongoing commitment to broadening our access portfolio by enhancing it with a strong wireless access offering, solidifying Allied Telesis's leadership in the wireline networking infrastructure sector."
