Critical Mass of Customer Demand Dictates Broader Presence

Dallas, TX – May 16, 2016 – In response to local customer demand, Zinwave, a global provider of wideband distributed network solutions for in-building wireless, today announced that it has opened an office in Netley, a suburb of Adelaide, South Australia. South Australia, in addition to being central to Zinwave’s expanding client base, is a center of technological excellence, featuring several world renowned universities, a Technology Park, and high tech manufacturing facilities.

Zinwave has operated through a distributor in Australia for many years, providing its UNItivity distributed access platform for such properties as the Westfield shopping center in Sydney and the Rialto Towers in Melbourne, but now the company is expanding its presence to leverage new opportunities in the commercial real estate, hospital, and public venue sectors, among others.

Zinwave’s UNItivity platform is uniquely suited for bringing indoor wireless coverage to buildings because it offers the industry’s lowest installation cost and the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO). With Zinwave’s wideband DAS platform, customers install the system once and can then upgrade to support new frequencies without hardware upgrades.

“We anticipate strong market demand for our solutions in Australia, so we’re expanding our presence to better serve our customers,” said Scott Willis, president and CEO of Zinwave. “Opening this office underscores our commitment to the Australian market.”

In addition, UNItivity’s streamlined, all-fiber architecture makes it more reliable and much easier to install than traditional DAS solutions.
