SAN DIEGO, April 25 -- AirFiber Inc. has signed an OEM agreement to supply its wireless optical networking products to Nortel Networks. The agreement between the two companies assigns Nortel worldwide marketing rights for AirFiber's OptiMesh products.AirFiber described its OptiMesh network equipment as a carrier-grade, high-bandwidth (622 Mb/s) communications system able to provide broadband access at a fraction of the cost and in a shorter timeframe than that required to install fiber to buildings. The network is based on wireless optical networking technology that delivers high-bandwidth access through the air for voice, data and multimedia services. According to AirFiber, its system is based on a highly redundant mesh or multiple point-to-point design that ensures carrier grade reliability. OptiMesh will drastically increase the speed with which true high-bandwidth capabilities are delivered to buildings that don't have direct access to a fiber optic network, said Jim Dunn, AirFiber's president and CEO. Now, through our alliance with Nortel Networks, world leader in optical networking, we expect more and more buildings around the globe to benefit from high-bandwidth connectivity.
