CALABASAS, Calif. -- Strix Systems, a market and technology leader in high-performance wireless mesh networking, today announced that ReliaClear Canada Inc. of Ontario, Canada has been selected as a Strix Gold Partner for the distribution, resale and deployment of Strix mesh network systems and professional services throughout Canada.

ReliaClear is deploying Strix Access/One Outdoor Wireless System (OWS) for multiple City-wide WiFi networks. The City of Thorold, Ontario, which covers 32 sq. miles with a population over 18,000 is the first of many multi-city projects in which ReliaClear is providing the design, deployment and operations of commercial, municipal and public safety networks across the Ontario province and Niagara region. As a provider of digital services, and unique in the region, ReliaClear offers a wide range of voice, video, data solutions to multiple markets and specialty digital telephone and Enterprise-class voice PBX solutions to business and wholesale customers.

Driving the initiative between the City of Thorold and distinguished local members of the business community, ReliaClear established anchor tenancy with the municipality in which services, including Internet and virtual voice are delivered in concert with city-wide and mobile WiFi at a reasonable cost. In return the city provides access to street lights and other municipal wireless mesh access points for equipment installation.

ReliaClear chose Strix Access/One OWS after extensive evaluation and testing. The criteria for the selection included high throughput for high capacity and bursty user traffic, low latency to maintain high call quality at high volumes, and mesh resilience self-adjusting for highest performing backhaul. By choosing Strix, ReliaClear not only achieved their initial objectives, but gained a new range of enhanced services, reaching the greater population.

"We needed a system with quick deployment; a rapid and simple installation process – timing was of the essence,” said Michael Somerville, President of ReliaClear. “Strix Systems solutions allow us to deliver compelling and cost effective advanced services to our customers.”

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
