MobileAccess, a global provider of enterprise wireless solutions, is working with Cisco to deliver a solution that enables reliable, in-building cellular coverage over an organization’s existing LAN infrastructure. By integrating MobileAccessVE with the Cisco Unified Wireless Network, MobileAccess can allow customers to integrate cellular and WiFi coverage reliably and more cost-effectively. MobileAccess and Cisco are currently deploying the integrated solutions in a variety of customer environments including The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), which is using the integrated offering in several campus buildings.
The MobileAccessVE solution, which has been tested and validated with the Cisco Unified Wireless Network, sends cellular RF signals over CAT-5/6 Ethernet LAN infrastructure for 2G, 3G and 4G services, without affecting wired or wireless LAN traffic. This flexible approach lets enterprises maximize the ROI on existing network investments by using their LAN to deliver cellular connectivity.
