August 14, 2008 -- ADC has signed a wireless distribution agreement with Crossover Distribution, a Canadian distributor of wireless, telecom and CATV solutions, based in Mississauga, Ontario. Crossover Distribution will promote ADC's InterReach Unison and InterReach Fusion in-building cellular products, including a new version of InterReach Fusion designed exclusively for Canadian markets.
The agreement will help to expand ADC's market footprint in Canada through its network of certified VARs and resellers.
"We are seeing growing demand for reliable, cost-effective in-building cellular solutions across Canada as our customers increase their reliance on wireless voice and data networks," says Darin Gibbons, vice-president of sales and marketing for Crossover Distribution. "ADC's solutions will allow us to enhance cellular coverage in large enterprise buildings and public venues, and will also give us the ability to provide multi-carrier solutions, as these are requirements our current offerings do not address."
"ADC is recognized as a global leader in providing network infrastructure products and services to the service provider community and they are a natural fit for Crossover's growing cellular business," adds John Taylor, president of Crossover Distribution.
ADC's in-building cellular systems have been deployed in over 12,000 locations worldwide, claims the company. The InterReach systems offer active, hub-and-spoke architecture that offers consistent signal strength at each remote antenna and enables end-to-end monitoring.
"Our new Fusion system supports all major Canadian carrier frequencies, and is being deployed to support the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver," concludes John Spindler, vice president of product management for ADC. "This new partnership with Crossover Distribution will help accelerate our market growth for this system and other ADC solutions in Canada."
