5G Wireless Solutions
Announces Reseller Agreement with Vector Resources - Newest Channel Partner Provides Company With Immediate GSA Certification
Marina del Rey, CA – May 4, 2005 — 5G Wireless Solutions, Inc., an emerging leader in the wireless broadband industry and a portfolio company of 5G Wireless Communications, Inc. (OTCBB: FGWC), today reported the execution of a contract enabling
Vector Resources, Inc.
, a Torrance-based distributor of telecommunications equipment, to resell its wireless networking systems.
Vector Resources is one of Southern California's leading converged telephony and enterprise network systems integration firms specializing in the design and implementation of high performance network solutions. The company was formed in 1988 to provide a comprehensive range of voice and data networking solutions and now includes more than 300 employees in its Torrance and San Diego locations. Five separate divisions offer expertise in IP Telephony, Networking Integration, Wireless Solutions, Electrical Design & Installation and Structured Cabling.
"Our Wireless Solutions division was thoroughly impressed with 5G's high performance, low cost networking equipment," stated Jeffrey Zukerman, Vector Vice President of Operations. "Since a lot of what we do involves planning, implementing and maintaining wireless networks, we were able to immediately appreciate how utilizing a few 5G rooftop Base Stations, rather than hundreds of competitors' Access Points, can help result in more efficient operations for our customers and a faster path to profitability for us."
Vector's ongoing involvement with various federal government agencies also means that 5G Wireless Solutions products have already passed the necessary qualification process enabling the company to immediately bid on all U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) procurement proposals.
5G Wireless Solutions will provide its G-Force 800 series of 802.11b compatible wireless networking equipment to create high performance C-WANs(TM) (Campus-Wide Area Networks) and Wi-Fi HotZones(TM) with minimal hardware requirements. This competitive benefit significantly reduces both capital and ongoing operating expenditures given fewer network management and administration activities. The overall result - a lower TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) for wireless access per square foot of coverage - is quickly emerging as the new metric in assessing network efficiency. 5G's lower cost equipment is also accelerating Wi-Fi penetration across several key vertical industry markets.
"Vector's vertical market expertise is closely aligned with ours," added Doug Fox, 5G Wireless Solutions Regional Sales Manager, "so we can share intelligence regarding education, government, healthcare, entertainment and transportation applications. This is especially promising with regard to our interest in shipping and port installations, given national security concerns over container integrity and the rapid acceleration of RFID technology."
Vector has received both 3Com (NASDAQ: COMS ), and Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO ), Wireless LAN Specialist Certifications. Their project experience includes the West Coast's largest, single-location, private wireless network (at the time of installation), spanning the 400-acre campus of a leading shipping company.
