Unique Broadband Systems, Bell Canada Ink Wireless Contract

[Concord, CANADA] Unique Broadband Systems (UBS), a broadband wireless solutions provider, has inked a multi-year supply contract with Bell Canada to provide equipment for use in the delivery of high-speed wireless Internet access to institutional customers.

Under the deal, which has a projected value of $3.9 million, UBS will supply Bell Canada with wireless transport equipment, as well as training and maintenance services.

The new contract extends the relationship between the two companies.

Last year, UBS delivered wireless equipment to Bell that helps provide a link to rural customer sites that were beyond the reach of high-speed wireline access. UBS supplied bi-directional wireless transport equipment, linking various Bell point-to-multipoint radio sites providing wireless broadband access.

"We were very pleased with the technology UBS supplied us last year," said Clayton Mangione, Director of Technology Development, Bell Canada. "UBS has shown it can deliver the technology and the expertise that we need for this wireless Internet project."

"The combination of our wireline services and UBS' broadband wireless solution will enable us to deliver high quality high-speed wireless access to our customers," he said.

Unique Broadband Systems is an established player in the design, development, and manufacture of broadband wireless solutions. It focuses on COFDM-based high-speed mobile solutions (DAB, SDARS and High-Speed Mobile Multimedia) and fixed wireless multimedia (MMDS, MVDS and LMDS).

Commited to research and innovation, UBS has expanded its position in the growing markets of digital radio, satellite digital radio, and the transmission of wireless multimedia.

The company's extensive product line is combined with system design, installation, maintenance, and technical support to provide customers with total system solutions.
