OTTAWA, CANADA - DECEMBER 13, 2011 - Edgewater Wireless, a wholly owned subsidiary of KIK Polymers Inc, (KPI.V TSXV) has successfully received certification for additional members of the EAP3000 family of high-performance, multi-channel WiFi products from the National Agency of Telecommunications (ANATEL), the Brazilian accreditation body for regulatory compliance.
Similar to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in United States, ANATEL extensively tests telecommunications products to ensure compliance with national regulatory requirements. Certification by ANATEL is a requirement for the use and sale of all telecommunications products in Brazil.
"The certification by ANATEL of additional EAP3000 products is a significant milestone that opens the door for Edgewater Wireless to expand its business presence, and its product and feature mix in Brazil," said Greg Fielding, Chief Executive Officer of Edgewater Wireless. "Brazil is a focus market for Edgewater Wireless due to its growth in data communications infrastructure, fueled by a solid economy and, in particular, the upcoming Olympics and World Cup".
In Brazil, as in many regions of the world, the growing use of smart phones and tablets is dramatically increasing demands on data communications bandwidth, stressing existing infrastructure. The Edgewater Wireless EAP3000 family of devices helps to solve this growing problem by delivering significantly greater bandwidth density, advanced network visibility, improved security and network reliability required to meet the accelerating growth demands in data communications in the country.
EAP3000 wideband, multi-channel access points are currently manufactured at SMTC's Markham, Ontario location and, with ANATEL certification, Edgewater Wireless can rapidly expand volume production to meet the demand for various product configurations.
