Signal transmission product manufacturer Belden has entered the wireless arena with a multi-year, multimillion dollar global agreement with Extricom, which has developed an interference-free wireless local area network (WLAN) system.

The two companies have formed a technology partnership that will focus on developing enterprise WiFi solutions, enabled by Extricom’s core technology.

“Belden is in the business of answering our customers’ signal transmission needs,” said Peter Sheehan, president of Belden Americas.

“Our entry into wireless technology presents another avenue for the fulfilment of our customers’ needs, with unified wired-wireless solutions they can depend on. Extricom provides a highly-differentiated technology that will be the basis for Belden’s future wireless products,” he claimed.

Extricom’s WLAN system eliminates co-channel interference, by creating a ‘channel blanket’ wireless topology, as opposed to what the company describes as ‘cell-planning’.

The vendor claimed this will allow it to deliver seamless and zero-latency mobility, and wire-like connections with guaranteed quality of service.
