Toronto, Ontario (June 25, 2002) – Unique Broadband Systems, Inc. (TSX Venture: UBS) announced today that it is exhibiting at the Wireless Communications Association (WCA) Convention and Exposition in Boston, June 24 to 27. The Company is profiling its Broadband Wireless Access system along with its mobile video and data systems using COFDM (Coded Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplex) technology.
“WCA 2002 is the premier annual show for the wireless broadband industry and an important forum for us to attend,” said Gerald McGoey, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of UBS. “It provides us the opportunity to demonstrate some of our leading technology on the industry’s largest exhibition floor and a chance to network with many of the key players in the wireless world.”
Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) systems are a cost-effective alternative to wired networks for both local loop and backbone applications and can be configured for private networks or commercial services. UBS leverages the best of both wired and wireless technologies to deliver converged voice, video, fax, broadcast, data and broadband Internet services. Using digital compression, BWA services can offer hundreds of television channels, premium services such as pay-per-view and near video-on-demand, and two-way data service. Multiservice edge devices, such as routers, connected to wireless modems offer support for high quality Internet service, voice-over-IP telephony for both primary and secondary lines, and G3 fax transmission. And, by using UBS’ state-of-the-art technologies, such as our COFDM solutions, the next generation of BWA products will deliver enhanced coverage and quality.
UBS offers a unique solution for transmitting mobile Digital Video Broadcast and data using COFDM technology that it will be exhibiting at WCA.
