Steatite awarded Wave Relay Reseller of the Year for second time

Steatite is celebrating its second year as an Authorised Reseller of the Wave Relay® suite of products, after being awarded Reseller of the Year 2015 for the second year running by Persistent Systems LLC, at the annual Partner Conference in New York.

Chris Harrington, director of Steatite’s communications division commented "This award is in recognition of Steatite’s continued investment, our team approach and a great deal of hard work in generating business for the Wave Relay® suite of products over the last 12 months.

"Steatite has devoted a considerable amount of time, energy and resource in both realising opportunities for Wave Relay® products, as well as working with Persistent Systems to develop new innovative solutions for defence and security applications around the world."

Persistent Systems develops, manufactures and integrates a patented and secure Mobile Ad Hoc Networking (MANET) system called Wave Relay®. This partnership adds a valuable capability to Steatite’s current product offerings, with an intuitive vertical integration for consumers.

Designed to maintain connectivity on the move, this scalable, peer-to-peer wireless network provides data, video and voice whilst extending your network wirelessly into RF restricted areas.

During 2015, Steatite played a key role in the European launch of Wave Relay® 5, boasting Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) technology, which increases range, reliability and bandwidth of the radio system.

This enables the simultaneous transmission of multiple high definition (HD) video feeds, vital command and control information and other sensor and voice data.

This year has also seen Steatite develop a radio solution that integrated the Wave Relay® MANET Radio into a body worn form factor for situational awareness applications.
