Edgewater Wireless Systems Inc., the global leader in WiFi3 next-generation WiFi technology, announced a partnership with FLINT Professional Services, a UK-based provider of infrastructure and professional services to the mobile industry, to address growing market demand for high-density WiFi in the UK market.

The increasing density of smartphone and tablet users throughout the United Kingdom has strained traditional WiFi networks and has left carriers struggling to fulfill the demands. Together with FLINT, Edgewater Wireless is responding to the demand, directly addressing the needs of high-density applications.

“We’ve watched service providers and large enterprises grapple with the rapid growth of data hungry smart devices.”, said Neil Burbidge, Managing Director of FLINT Professional Services. “Bringing Edgewater’s WiFi3 solutions to the UK market, gives us a solution matched to the needs to the high growth UK market.”

Starting from engineering first principles and building a true high-performance chipset specifically geared toward the high-density carrier market, Edgewater Wireless and WiFi3, represent a dramatic shift in WiFi, offering the only carrier focused multi-channel WiFi solution directly addressing the needs of high-density applications.

Edgewater Wireless WiFi3 series of Next Generation WiFi Access Points enables 3-channels on a single radio and provides improved WiFi services and QoS to end users by delivering up to 50 times greater performance vs traditional WiFi.
