On December 11th, in Milan, Selex Communications will participate as a Sponsor Partner at the Wireless to WiMAX, an event organised by Alvarion.
The choice to participate at this event is part of the WiMAX, and more in general of the WBA (Wireless Broadband Access) – promotion strategy; and the result of Selex Communications’ willingness to create synergies with important players in this sector, in order to accelerate the process of setting the frequencies dedicated to the use of the WiMAX technology.
These frequencies are managed by the Ministry of Defence and there are negotiations under way (for their assignment at the Ministry of Telecommunications, in which scope, Selex Communications is playing the interlocutor role between the two proposed bodies, Defence and Telecommunications).
In this process, Selex Communications believes it is important to coordinate and cooperate with Alvarion, an important producer of WiMAX and Hiperlan equipments, and that has an 80% share of the WiMAX world market.
The result of this cooperation is the idea of organising together, an event that wants to clarify at what point the situation between Telecom Operators and Local Public Administration is. The goal of the meeting is to share the significant experiences derived from carrying out of wide band wireless networks on the Italian territory.
It is referred to applications in the Public Administration and Operators fields that aim to fill the Digital Divide that is still much present in the country, at the interconnections of buildings, at the video-surveillance and at the territory monitoring.
Selex Communications will also have a session during which, it will hold a speech entitled, Integrated wireless technologies to guarantee communications for Homeland Security. Selex Communications is represented in Australia by Martin International .
