Quintum Technologies Partners with Wi-LAN To Provide Wireless VoIP

VoIP Wireless Solution Reduces Costs and Enables Rapid Widespread Deployment.

EATONTOWN, NJ December 15, 2004 ­ Quintum Technologies, a leading innovator in VoIP technology, has partnered with Wi-LAN Inc. (TSX:WIN), a global provider of market-leading broadband wireless communications products and technologies and charter member of the WiMAX Forum, to offer their secure wireless high-speed communications solution to businesses, telecom service providers, and government enterprises.

Wi-LAN specializes in high-speed Internet access, data network extension, and wireless data and telephony backhaul, utilizing its high quality broadband wireless products and industry-leading technologies. Wi-LAN broadband wireless solutions provide multiples of E1/T1 capacity lines with Voice over IP capability, can span distances of up to 75 km, and can achieve throughput of up to 288 Mbps.

The solution enables Next Generation Service Providers and WISPs to penetrate new markets by allowing them to bypass the incumbent telco to provide value added services such as voice and high bandwidth data services to customers who need secure and robust networking. Wi-LAN’s easy to install, industry leading wireless network products along with Quintum’s patented MultiPath Architecture provides the ability to simply integrate into existing voice and data networks while providing failover and redundancy that cannot be achieved utilizing traditional VoIP gateways.

Enterprise customers can securely connect multiple locations with both data and VoIP Services. Quintum’s ability to integrate with existing PBX and IP networks, coupled with Wi-LAN’s simple to deploy products allow for a highly available and low impact deployment.

"The Quintum Tenor products provide Wi-LAN with an easy, cost effective solution for our customers to deploy wireless Voice-over-IP networks," said John Seliga, Vice President of Marketing of Wi-LAN. "This unique solution allows us to deploy Tenors on both the customer premises and service provider access points, minimizing the disruption to the existing network infrastructure that is common with traditional VoIP gateways."

The Tenor’s unique MultiPath architecture allows it to be easily installed in line with the existing voice switching and IP routing infrastructure both on customer premises and at service provider POPs. The administration of call routing rules are transparently managed. Additional Tenor capacity can also be added incrementally as required, providing the scalability necessary to support growing call volume.
"Wi-LAN’s VoIP solutions offer a much needed alternative to traditional land line PSTN networks," said Charles Rutledge, Vice President of Marketing for Quintum Technologies. "Tenors work seamlessly over both types of networks and offer flexibility to service providers that no other VoIP equipment can."
