Hsinchu, Taiwan - Accton Technology Corporation (Accton hereinafter), (TAIEX: 2345) and Microelectronics Technology Inc. (MTI hereinafter), (TAIEX: 2314) today introduced an outdoor carrier class grade wireless bridge. This device was jointly developed using MTI's RF hardware and Accton's enterprise wireless software platforms.
"By introducing this wireless bridge to Accton's wireless product line, we are now in the position to offer a complete range of wireless solutions that will cover all demand from the consumer, enterprise, and carrier segments," said David Myers, OEM Marketing Director of Accton "It was also the first step in licensing our software to other manufacturers of wireless hardware to ensure end to end interoperability between all wireless products on the network."
