Aperto Named #1 WiMAX Company in India by Voice&Data Magazine  

NEW DELHI, INDIA (July 19, 2007) – Aperto® Networks, builder of the world's most advanced WiMAX solutions for fixed, portable, and mobile applications, today announced that it has been named as the Top WiMAX Company in India by VOICE&DATA magazine. The honor was awarded at the 8th Annual Voice & Data 100 Awards on July 18 in New Delhi.   "This is a tremendous honor for Aperto and our WiMAX Forum® Certified PacketMAX™ solution," said Manish Gupta, Vice President of Marketing & Alliances for Aperto Networks and WiMAX Forum Board Member. "It recognizes how broadly our award-winning technology is being adopted in India, one of the top WiMAX markets in the world. Aperto takes this market very seriously and has successfully deployed its solutions with several large service providers across India. Earlier this year we expanded operations in India, opened a new office in Bangalore, and set up two subsidiaries employing teams in engineering, marketing, product management, sales, and sales support."   V&D 100 is the most comprehensive survey on Indian communications industry. It covers both equipment as well as services industry. It is the most trusted and widely used survey for those seeking statistics on Indian communications. It is also the most comprehensive, as it covers a wide range of segments including A/V conferencing, fixed phones, mobile phones, GSM handsets, broadband, fixed wireless phones, CDMA handsets, modem, network integration, network management services, structured cabling, network storage, router, switch, WLAN, T&M, telecom cables, transmission, telecom software, telecom turnkey, voice solutions, fixed services, NLD, ISP, cellular, VSAT, wireless infrastructure, ILD, radio trunking, independent infrastructure provider, enterprise equipment, telecom services, VAS, and telecom equipment.   "WiMAX could do for Internet connectivity what mobile phones did for voice, though WiMAX is currently less about mobility than about rapid deployment and penetration," said Prasanto K. Roy, Chief Editor at CyberMedia Publications. "With the growing demand for broadband connectivity from urban homes and small/midsize businesses, WiMAX deployment is beginning to take off in India. The country could become one of the largest WiMAX markets in the world and we expect more investments in the sector."   The Aperto family of products delivers the critical elements required to extend wireless broadband services to a wide range of users—ranging from large enterprises and public-sector organizations to multi-tenet buildings and residences—using a single, standards-based platform. The company’s flagship product, the PacketMAX 5000 base station, is also the only carrier-grade base station that can support and operate both the IEEE802.16-2004 and IEEE802.16-2005 WiMAX standards simultaneously.
