Enforta Deploys Ubiquiti's airMAX Technology to 150 Russian Cities, Bringing Broadband to Russia's Remote Regions

Russia's Largest Fixed Wireless Broadband Operator Works With Ubiquiti Networks to Increase Internet Penetration Across the Country

SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/29/13 -- Ubiquiti Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: UBNT), a next-generation communications technology company, today announced that Enforta, the largest fixed wireless broadband operator in Russia, is leveraging Ubiquiti's airMAX product platform to expand its networking infrastructure. Two-thirds of the largest 200 companies in Russia use Enforta in some capacity, and the company's service footprint includes over 200 cities with an aggregate population of 70 million people.

More than 7,000 airMAX devices are now deployed on Enforta's fixed wireless network. The company is averaging 1,500 new installations per month with 20% year-over-year revenue growth and Enforta's plans include a near-term expansion of airMAX to another 150 secondary cities. Using airMAX, Enforta is able to support networks in Russia's harsh weather conditions in areas like Siberia, as well as rely on the quality and affordability of Ubiquiti products for cost-effective market expansion to underdeveloped territories throughout the country.

Russia's fast growing economy ranks it seventh in the world for number of Internet users, but Internet penetration remains low: in many regional capital cities less than 5% of the population has Web access. The country's legacy networking infrastructure and vast area covering 9 time zones required a nontraditional strategy, and wireless networking offered the best solution for quick and easy deployment across the country.

In addition to standard deployments, Enforta has conducted multiple pilot programs of Ubiquiti products in metropolitan, rural, and industrial areas, including work with Russia's Ministry of Education to provide Internet connectivity to more than 700 schools and home sites.

"Ubiquiti is the ideal networking solution for an emerging economy like Russia's," said Lee Sparkman, president and co-founder at Enforta. "The Internet has been revolutionary in transforming the economy here, and the superior scalability and performance of Ubiquiti's airMAX technology has given us a tremendous advantage."

"We're proud to support Enforta's efforts to expand affordable Internet access across Russia," said Robert J. Pera, CEO at Ubiquiti Networks. "Ubiquiti's disruptive carrier and enterprise technologies are opening up new markets for Internet services where it wasn't possible before."

About Enforta

Enforta was founded In October 2003 by a group of telecommunication industry executives with the objective of providing broadband telecommunication solutions based upon wireless and other state-of-the-art technologies in Russia's regional capitals. Though wireless broadband remains in its infancy both globally and in Russia, in six short years Enforta has risen to the #1 position amongst the Russian fixed wireless broadband operators according to 'CNews' February 2012 industry survey.

More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes how...

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, will share examples from a wide range of industries – includin...
"We build IoT infrastructure products - when you have to integrate different devices, different systems and cloud you have to build an application to do that but we eliminate the need to build an application. Our products can integrate any device, any system, any cloud regardless of protocol," explained Peter Jung, Chief Product Officer at Pulzze Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...
Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data professionals...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Predictive analytics tools monitor, report, and troubleshoot in order to make proactive decisions about the health, performance, and utilization of storage. Most enterprises combine cloud and on-premise storage, resulting in blended environments of physical, virtual, cloud, and other platforms, which justifies more sophisticated storage analytics.
