AWA Builds Mesh VoWLAN in Spain with Meru, Firetide

AWA, a privately held wireless company in Spain with ties to I+D, plans to roll out commercial WLAN and mesh networks with more than 12,000 access points in Spain. The network that AWA is currently deploying will place more than 4,500 of the 12,000 access points in gasoline stations. Access points will also be deployed in the main shopping centers and in public buildings.

The European distributor OptiCall will deliver products from Firetide and Meru Networks to build the network. The network will be centrally managed by the NMS platform.

OptiCall's VoWLAN solution includes Firetide's HotPort Mesh Network, Meru Networks WLAN System, and QTEK dual mode mobile phones with preinstalled WBX/Uniphone client from OptiMobile which ensures a single user interface for both VoIP over WLAN and GSM.
