AMSTERDAM, and RUSSIA -- InfiNet Wireless, a global provider of Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) and pre-WiMAX equipment for last mile connectivity and private and public networks, today announced that Enforta BV has selected the company as the wireless equipment provider for a nationwide broadband network. Enforta, headquartered in The Netherlands and 50% owned by Sumitomo Corp., has significant operator holdings throughout Russia. InfiNet Wireless and Enforta signed an equipment supply agreement which will lead to the creation, over the next 24 months, of the largest WiMAX network in the Russian Federation spanning 28 major cities.

“This relationship is a clear win for everyone,” said Lee Sparkman, president of Enforta. “Tens of thousands of Russians in medium-to-large sized cities across the country will finally be able to easily and affordably obtain broadband access. InfiNet Wireless was a natural choice for the project due to their strong local presence, technical support and superb Russian R&D center.”

The network, utilizing the InfiNet Wireless Series 5000 family of broadband wireless routers, promises to dramatically increase Internet access throughout Russia. Internet availability is currently below 20%, with broadband access below 2% of the total population. Initial deployments have already proven successful in the city of Novosibirsk, and roll-outs are underway in another 10 cities across Russia.

“We are very excited to join forces with Enforta to provide vital broadband communications services for corporate, government and residential subscribers across the 11 time zones of Russia,” said Robert Stubblebine, CEO of InfiNet Wireless. “Our quality and reputation were just as important as our product performance to Enforta.”
