LONDON -- Actix, the global provider of wireless network performance engineering solutions, today announced that it has formed a distribution partnership with Russian-based RayCom WirelessTM. RayCom Wireless, specialist supplier of wireless networks infrastructure equipment and wireless systems integration and installation services , will supply the Russian wireless telecommunications market with all of Actix’ 2G, 2.5G and 3G network planning, rollout, troubleshooting, and optimization solutions. RayCom Wireless will also provide consulting services based on Actix’ solutions.

Actix’ wireless performance engineering solutions are entirely vendor independent and enable operators to analyze raw wireless network data from a mix of network technologies, systems and data collection solutions in fine detail. This gives an end-to-end picture of vital wireless functions and the quality of service delivery from the subscriber’s perspective; it also enables engineers to ‘drill down’ to the root cause of any deficiencies. Some of the operators using Actix’ 3G solutions include: SKT Korea, FET Taiwan, Orange France, 3GIS, Hutchison 3G, Swisscom, Mobilkom, Vodafone UK, Vodafone Ireland, US Cellular, Verizon Wireless, Bell Mobility, Sprint PCS, and Qwest Wireless.

Alex Zinov, CTO, Raycom Wireless said, “For RayCom Wireless, the reasons for distributing Actix’ technology are clear. Our main clients are key Russian mobile operators including Mobile TeleSystems, VimpelCom, Megafon, Tele2 and Skylink. There is also a significant number of operators from other CIS countries including Belarus, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan. All these operators face demands to get more revenue from their 2G and 2.5G networks and also generate new revenues from future 3G services. They must overcome such challenges as the growing complexity of wireless networks and on-going wireless/IP convergence.

Actix’ solutions enable operators to verify new technologies and optimize network performance regardless of the mix of the infrastructure equipment used. We are extremely confident that Actix’ vendor independent solutions can bring Russian operators real benefits in a highly competitive environment.”

Jim Hobby, Actix’ Regional Sales Director, Eastern Europe, said, “The Russian wireless telecoms market is one of the most dynamic in the world. Although it has grown dramatically in recent years, it is still a relatively immature market with overall mobile penetration of 27.5%. With Actix’ vendor independent solutions RayCom can enable operators to more competitively increase their networks’ coverage, more effectively install further base stations in the regions, and improve indoor coverage quality in big cities. Russian operators will now be able to verify new technologies and optimize their networks’ performance regardless of the mix of the infrastructure equipment used – a key advantage as they face the challenges associated with 2.5G and 3G voice/data services.”
