By Carolyn J Dawson, TMCnet Contributor

MobileAccess is an international provider of enterprise wireless solutions. Recently, it announced that it is teaming up with Cisco (News - Alert) to deliver a latest, innovative solution that facilitates a trusted, in-building cellular coverage over an organization's existing LAN infrastructure.

By integrating MobileAccessVE with the Cisco Unified Wireless Network, for the first time, MobileAccess (News - Alert) is able to help customers to integrate cellular and Wi-Fi coverage reliably and much more economically. Today, MobileAccess and Cisco are deploying the integrated solutions in an extensive customer environment such as The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT (News - Alert)). It is employing the solution in numerous campus buildings to understand the amount of savings when compared to the alternative solutions.
MobileAccessVE offers a convincing, less expensive method to connect wirelessly that can change enterprise mobility and unified communications in higher education, healthcare, hospitality, and office facilities.
The MobileAccessVE solution has been tested and authenticated with the Cisco Unified Wireless Network. This technology sends cellular RF signals over CAT-5/6 Ethernet LAN infrastructure for 2G, 3G and 4G services, without disturbing wired or wireless LAN traffic. This adjustable method permits enterprises to optimize the ROI on current network investments by employing their LAN to deliver cellular connectivity. This provides enterprises the facility to effortlessly add cellular coverage and spread out their Cisco WLAN quickly and at a very cheap rate.
In a release Ron Kaiser who is the CEO of MobileAccess said that 'We brought MobileAccessVE to market for enterprises hungry for in-building wireless, yet reluctant to incur the costs and inconvenience associated with new cabling and downtime. Market analysts estimate the indoor cellular market will grow at a CAGR of nearly 25 percent over the next four years. Thanks to this unique solution, enterprises of all sizes can enable indoor cellular alongside their Cisco Unified Wireless Network, seamlessly and cost-effectively.'
Students and faculty greatly trust the wireless devices to communicate and view mobile videos, use high-tech educational applications and a lot more. Thus, Reliable cellular coverage together with pervasive 802.11n Wi-Fi access has become vital at MIT. The benefits of this solution are associated with MIT's vision of integrating. Finally, unifying communications all over the campus is able to enhance the productivity and security of students, staff and guests.
