for its unique combination of VLAN tagging features, rich network
management, SNMP support and great spectral efficiency. Our markets
are highly competitive and these capabilities enable us to further
enhance our performance lead over other service providers, both
wireline and wireless. We are rapidly adding subscribers to our
Aperto-powered networks, and every day we see clear proof that PacketWave
minimizes interference, dramatically boosts throughput, enables
us to accurately and remotely monitor performance, and delivers
a very high quality signal."
Vice President of Operations
"We have been very well-served by our primary
deployment of 5 GHz-based Aperto systems, especially as more and
more unlicensed frequency wireless operators have joined the provider
community in Dublin. Aperto's narrow channel sizing has kept our
networks virtually interference-free in the 5 GHz frequency. This
has helped to build our reputation for delivery of high-quality
business class service. Now we are in a position to add the 3.5
GHz licensed frequency as an overlay to our existing network, and
we look forward to extending our success with Aperto's 3.5 GHz PacketWave
systems. This eases our scalability as we already know the systems
deployment and management processes. The growth should be transparent
to our teams and our customers. Finally, Aperto's leadership in
WiMAX is of consequence to us. We're considered leaders in our sector,
and want to work with leaders to sustain our success."
"We serve a broad diversity of carriers and
their commercial customers in CIS markets, including integrated
communications and mobile operators, top-tier banks and credit-card
processors, federal facilities and utility plants. Aperto's systems
have proven their ability to work well in these applications, in
harsh external environments such as Siberia and rural as well as
urban installations. Such versatility appeals greatly to our carrier
"We are reaping the rewards of having deployed
Aperto's systems for maximum reach and robust IP feature-rich performance.
It was our goal to be able to serve the most demanding corporate
users with higher quality and far faster speed than the incumbent.
We also knew that neither 2.4 GHz spectrum nor 802.11 technology
would provide carrier-class metropolitan area networks. Aperto's
systems deployed flawlessly in just one day, and their minimal tech
support requirements and very high availability allow us to set
the new standard for data networking in West Africa."

"Our success in meeting consumer and portable
wireless access demand created an ideal opportunity to take the
Maui Sky Fiber model to the next level. We already have at least
5Mbps continuous backhaul traffic from our residential users and
hotspots. Since we look to double our subscriber base this year,
traffic will continue to grow rapidly. We were ready for the highly
scalable wireless backhaul infrastructure Aperto's PacketWave provided
between our major nodes."

"After rigorous tests with multiple suppliers
and platforms, we selected Aperto's powerful PacketWave systems
due to their proven superiority in the areas we consider critical
to our markets -guaranteed QoS for high-speed business services,
highly-reliable performance for backhaul applications, complementary
operation with our existing wireless network, and capital efficiency.
PacketWave delivered on these challenges and will serve us to fortify
the position of leadership that MVS has forged through three decades
offering Mexico the best choices in information, culture, commerce
"Aperto Networks is a leader
in the development of WiMAX-class network gear, steering this technology
into the mainstream.The company looks to be one of the first to
certify for WiMAX compliance, has already signed fixed-wireless
broadband deals with 100 carriers in 40 countries around the world,
and is poised for success."
"We built our business around software-driven,
end-to-end service delivery processes. Aperto's systems and software
are very well-suited to our end-to-end focus. The PacketWave platform
worked extremely well in pilot and gave us very high confidence
in the company's ability to deliver not only to our current technical
requirements, but also to our future needs in scalability, WiMAX
integration and network intelligence."

"We deployed Aperto's PacketWave system because
it is clearly the most spectrally-efficient 5.8 GHz platform on
the market. The narrow channel width delivers a clean, robust and
interference-resilient signal consistently. The system gives us
much greater capacity for growth, and performs extremely well in
obstructed line-of-sight circumstances. We get the most out of the
units and out of our subscriber capacity, because the systems fully
deliver on their published range, power, quality and feature specifications."
Anthony S. Adams
