Wimax at EIT!!!

Trans-Tasman broadcast and telecommunications technology provider Kordia has secured the New Zealand distribution rights to RoamAD’s networks, which it plans to deploy throughout the country.

The partnership of the two companies won its first New Zealand contract before Christmas, coming top of five bids to build a wireless access solution for the Eastern Institute of Technology (EIT) in Hawkes Bay.

Kordia chief executive Geoff Hunt said Kordia (which was until recently known as THL Group) will develop more applications and is willing to work with other content and service providers in the Wi-Fi arena.

“This deal with RoamAD and EIT Hawke’s Bay is our first step towards increasing ease of use and the utility of Wi-Fi networks throughout New Zealand,” he says.

Wow - not bad thinking for a 'small' regional Polytechnic with 3000 EFTS!
