5G Wireless Solutions Receives Contract for Westchester College Campus-Wide Networking Equipment
MARINA DEL REY, CA - Dec 13, 2005 - 5G Wireless Solutions, Inc., an emerging leader in the wireless broadband industry and a wholly owned subsidiary of 5G Wireless Communications, Inc. (OTC BB:FGWI.OB - News), announced today that Westchester Community College, located in Valhalla, New York, has selected the company's new
"cellular-style" Wi-Fi solution to provide campus-wide internet access throughout the 218-acre campus.
A single rooftop base station, augmented with several indoor units, will provide blanket coverage both indoors and out throughout the historic campus in upstate New York. Utilizing far less hardware than competitive offerings, the 5G Solution will deliver superior performance specifications while reducing both upfront capital hardware expenditures and ongoing operational network administration expenses. Significant savings from an overall reduced TCO (Total Cost of
Ownership) will allow the college to maximize the value of every IT dollar invested in the new technology.
"Westchester College is one of 64 colleges in the SUNY (State University of New York) system," stated Jerry Dix, 5G Wireless Communications' CEO, "and we consider this our test bed that will afford us a real opportunity to penetrate those affiliated campuses throughout the state."
Over 500 community organizations and 300,000 Westchester residents utilize the campus facilities each year for special events. As the college plays an important role in the county, the 5G network, scheduled to begin installation next month, will be utilized by a population well beyond the current student body.
Westchester College claims a continuing education student population totaling 20,000. SUNY enrolls 40 percent of all New York State high school graduates, and its total enrollment of more than 413,000 (full-time and part-time) is approximately 37 percent of the state's entire higher education student population. The State University of New York's 64 geographically dispersed campuses bring educational opportunity within commuting distance of virtually all New Yorkers
and comprise the nation's largest comprehensive system of public higher education.
Westchester joins the growing list of college campuses currently utilizing 5G Wireless Solutions infrastructures which now includes: UCLA and Cal State Long Beach, CA; Franklin, Cedarville and Tiffin Universities, OH; College of DuPage, IL; Monmouth University, NJ; and Harford College, MD.
