"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."
