ORLAND PARK, Ill. -- Andrew Corporation and Vivato, Inc. have formed a marketing agreement to provide wireless network operators with a Wi-Fi® solution that provides the broadest area of coverage with the fewest number of access points, thereby lowering the cost of deployment.

The agreement combines Andrew's global distribution and wireless systems integration expertise with Vivato's patented smart antenna based products, which will be jointly marketed, installed and serviced.

"Using the Andrew-Vivato solution, our Wi-Fi network operator customers can provide signal coverage over a large area with a minimum number of access points", said Jerry Dziki, Vice-President of Andrew Corp's Broadband Access Group. "In addition to lowering equipment costs, this solution significantly reduces the labor costs associated with trenching Ethernet cable used in conventional access point deployments. Over time, we expect to broaden our relationship to include product co-development and cross-licensing agreements."

"We are very pleased to be working with Andrew Corporation in the development and deployment of our products," said Kevin Ryan, vice president of marketing & business development for Vivato. "Andrew is the leader in Antenna and cellular technologies and is the ideal partner for us in bringing our products to market. We look forward to leveraging our core technology and products to deliver Wi-Fi to the markets they serve."
