Repeatit announced today that German ISP, Sewikom, has selected the Repeatit Trinity product range, as it’s preferred technology for a massive network replacement and upgrade taking place in 2015. Adding Repeatit Trinity as Sewikom’s flagship fixed wireless broadband range is part of a mass replacement of Sewikom’s legacy point to point network displacing other brands equipment.
We have actually decided to replace the existing hundreds of point to point links with new Trinity technology from Repeatit. By using Repeatit, we get four times the net throughput and a 24-month warranty at a cost less than the software upgrade option from the old existing vendor
With demand for video streaming, online gaming, VoIP and video calls rapidly rising, ISP customers, including both private households and businesses, are experiencing their existing bandwidth allowance is simply not adequate. This is leading to an increasing number of bandwidth bottlenecks in, both wired and wireless, large-scale ISP networks.
As a leading ISP providing broadband to underserved rural areas in Germany, Sewikom has experienced an almost overnight surge in Internet usage due to the current generational change in Internet usage. No longer do customers simply want to check emails, they now want lightening fast, highly reliable and cost-effective broadband to support these new needs.
Undergoing a full technological and commercial evaluation by Sewikom, the Repeatit Trinity product performance proved outstanding whilst also demonstrating a large commercial advantage over its current wireless hardware supplier.
“We live in an incredible time where almost all legacy services are morphing into online services such as TV, telephony and other communication. That said we’ve experienced a massive uplift in demand, especially within the last year where more and more users use video streaming services and cloud applications,” said Kai-Timo Wilke, CEO for Sewikom. “Using Repeatit makes perfect sense. We had the option of software upgrading our existing wireless point to point links which would have cost a huge amount of money and given a lesser performance than Repeatit. We have actually decided to replace the existing hundreds of point to point links with new Trinity technology from Repeatit. By using Repeatit, we get four times the net throughput and a 24-month warranty at a cost less than the software upgrade option from the old existing vendor.”
Repeatit’s leading performance is thanks to a unique set of market leading technologies; AirTime, PacketHeal and SyncMaster. Sewikom experienced that AirTime increases wireless network efficiency and reduces latency especially in long distance & congested environments, PacketHeal has eliminated transmission errors for data & video streaming, and Repeatit’s SyncMaster technology enables the Trinity unit to re-use the same wireless channels over & over again greatly increasing efficiency.
With Sewikom adopting our Trinity product range as their flagship wireless solution, it further cements the outcry from the market for better products at better prices. It’s the ISPs, integrators and VARs that have the voice and Repeatit is listening to it.” Said Frank Pauer, Managing Director, Sales for Repeatit. “At Repeatit, we have two fundamental aims. The first is to make wireless products that perform like a wire, providing a highly reliable connection and also able to support growing demands, overcoming operational challenges. The second is to create these high quality products that fit well within business models enabling customers to roll out rock solid networks using the best technology whilst also gaining a return on their investment quickly.”
