Alternet Joins Consortium to Build
Broadband Wireless Networks in Two Countries
VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA -- Alternet Systems Inc. (ASYI) has
joined a consortium to deliver country-wide broadband wireless
networks in two Eastern European countries. These networks
will bring VoIP, high-speed Internet and IP-TV to under-served
communities throughout each country.
Alternets CommunityWeb, SchoolWeb
and HealthWeb server software will be used to optimize, organize
and distribute broadband internet service to schools, health
centers and the general community.
The total population base of these two
countries totals 12 million people, with 60% located in rural
communities. Residents of rural areas have very limited access
to telephones (4 in 100 have telephone access) and virtually
no internet access.
The initial phase of the network build
out is for 400 communities, and a total of 4,000 communities
have been targeted for network access. The network consists
of a combination of fiber optics and fixed wireless towers
with the last mile delivered by wireless distribution. Connecting
the local school, health center and government office to a
broadband wireless and VoIP system, is of primary importance.
The consortiums low roll-out cost, leading-edge technology
and fast implementation cycle give it a strong competitive
Alternet will be supplying CommunityWeb,
SchoolWeb and HealthWeb software for these wireless networks,
as well as network security (anti-virus and anti-spam) and
Alternet Systems Inc. is a developer of software that optimizes
the capacity of broadband Internet networks. The rapid integration
of broadband wireless networks around the world is expected
to allow the next billion users of the Internet to join the
information age. Alternet is uniquely positioned to participate
in this world-wide expansion of broadband wireless networks.
