Strix Access/One Indoor Wireless Systems (IWS) and
Outdoor Wireless Systems (OWS) is deployed to create integrated
wireless infrastructure serving apartments and multi-tenant offices.
SINE Networks implemented such an infrastructure for apartment
complexes in Lubbock, Texas.
designs, deploys, and provides ongoing systems administration of
wireless networks for retail, hospitality, recreation, hospital,
education, and apartment locations throughout Texas. After evaluating
competing single- and dual-radio solutions, SINE Networks found that
only Strix Systems' cost-effective multi-radio, multi-RF, multi-channel
Wi-Fi mesh architecture could deliver real-time services such as voice
and video as well as data services to its Multi-Dwelling Unit (MDU)
proving its high performance under heavy user demand, we knew that the
Strix Access/One Network system was the perfect solution for MDUs,"
said Alan Russell, vice president of IT for SINE Networks. "The system
is amazingly easy to deploy, and its modular design and multi-radio
capacity make it incredibly flexible. There's no doubt that Strix's
plug-and-play capabilities and high performance are integral to the
success of our deployments. In fact, we plan to double our Strix
deployments to 10-12 MDUs and hotels by year's end."
Networks has deployed Strix's IWS and OWS in five apartment complexes
with a total of 40 buildings, each with up to 200 apartments. Most of
these complexes provide housing for students at Texas Tech University
and for young, tech-savvy professionals. Strix's wireless mesh solution
attracted SINE Networks because it eliminated the need to rewire
existing buildings, making it cost effective for MDU managers to offer
tenants free high-speed network access. All users can securely and
wirelessly connect to the network from anywhere within the complexes,
both indoors and outdoors. Strix's solution also links nearby
complexes. Strix's Access/One Client Connect Privacy security feature
ensures that a user cannot intrude on other wireless users connected to
"Many of SINE Networks' MDU
customers see free wireless access as an effective tool to retain
existing tenants and attract the increasingly tech-savvy 30-and-under
crowd. Free access is also a huge draw for the large population of
Texas Tech students looking for apartments in Lubbock," said Kevin
Bryan, vice president of sales for SINE Networks. "Strix Systems'
incredibly high-performance multi-radio, multi-RF, multi-channel WiFi
wireless mesh solution can handle the high-capacity requirements of
these MDUs while enabling them to easily and cost-effectively scale the
network in the future for increased usage and higher bandwidth
