Mobinil Selects iBwave's In-Building Design Software Suite to Help Meet Growing Wireless Demand in Egypt

MONTREAL, Jan. 25 /CNW Telbec/ - iBwave, the leader in design solutions for wireless in-building networks, announced today that Mobinil, the leading mobile operator in Egypt, has selected its Design Suite of software products to better plan, design, and deliver in-building wireless data and voice services to its mobile subscribers. With 70% of calls originating from within buildings and a constant increase in demand for mobile high speed data, this agreement allows Mobinil's engineers to use iBwave's design and planning software to perform their in-building wireless deployments across the country.

"As the demands on our network continue to grow, we firmly believe that expanding our in-building coverage is a key strategy for us to be able to continue delivering that positive experience to our mobile subscribers and strengthen our leading position in Egypt," said Hassan Kabbani, CEO at Mobinil.

A majority of the population in Egypt is concentrated on the banks of the river Nile and the addition of indoor wireless coverage will provide increased capacity to this concentrated region while simultaneously leaving the required outdoor capacity to the congested streets of Cairo. This type of proactive initiative is reflective of Mobinil's constant search to provide the best wireless network for its mobile user community.

"To have a leading wireless operator such as Mobinil adopt our solutions is extremely gratifying" said Mr. Mario Bouchard, President and CEO at iBwave. "This continues to confirm the trend in the industry that wireless operators are focusing on indoor networks as a key approach to offloading data traffic, alleviating network congestion and providing additional capacity. We look forward to working with Mobinil on achieving those objectives."

With iBwave Design, RF engineers can automate high volumes of 2G, 3G and LTE in-building wireless network design and eliminate guesswork, bringing strong, reliable wireless communications to indoor and near-building environments that bear the brunt of the upsurge in mobile data activity. And since small cells and DAS are increasingly used to handle capacity requirements, in-building solutions are becoming more critical and complex, making it even more essential to work with a tool that delivers superior designs. The iBwave Design suite guides RF engineers through network planning, design, costing, validation, documentation and reporting, delivering top performance, reducing capital expenditure and increasing productivity.
