Bridgewave Communications, a US-based supplier of high capacity 4G backhaul and gigabit wireless connectivity solutions, is making waves at GITEX TECHNOLOGY WEEK by showcasing its 60 and 80 GHz wireless bridges.

The company is expanding its market presence by bringing its high capacity microwave and millimeter wave products to the Middle East.

With research firm IDC predicting an 11% increase in IT spending for 2010 in the Middle East market, BridgeWave’s dedicated Sales Director, Bernard Richa, sees great opportunity for product deployments in the Middle East.

BridgeWave’s solutions provide “fibre-equivalent” connections between locations by transmitting data over microwave or millimetre wave frequencies at gigabit speeds.

BridgeWave’s point-to-point wireless solutions offer high performance, cost-effective alternatives to fibre circuits for mobile backhaul, service providers, network extensions, and government and municipal network applications.

The company has a broad range of products including carrier-grade, point-to-point wireless FlexPort links, which provide a future-proof mobile backhaul solution for carriers and mobile operators looking to support 4G/LTE/WiMAX adoption.

The company’s 60 GHz and 80 GHz links offer up to ten times the bandwidth of comparably-priced lower-frequency licence-free and licenced-band wireless links, while providing superior interference immunity and data security.

“We welcome the opportunity to introduce our carrier-class, high capacity products to customers who might have looked at fibre or other alternative technologies and provide insights as to how these solutions yield cost-effective fibre-like performance,” says Richa.

BridgeWave is looking to meet with customers and partners in the industry who may have a need for its high capacity, wireless systems. “GITEX provides BridgeWave an opportunity to meet with key decision makers in the telecommunications industry,” Richa adds.

BridgeWave has invested resources and increased its sales presence in the Middle East, and has also signed on partners to increase awareness and opportunities in the region.

Founded in 1999, BridgeWave is headquartered in Santa Clara, California.
