Roving Planet, CH2M Hill Forge European Distribution Deal

    BOULDER, CO (ots) - Strategic Partnership Positions Roving Planet to Address Rapidly Growing Demand for Wireless LAN Management Solutions in North America and Europe

    Roving Planet, a leading provider of management, control, and integration platforms for wireless LANs, today announced that CH2M Hill International Ltd./Equador, the European communications software consultancy and integration unit of CH2M Hill Communications Group, a global leader in the rapid deployment of telecommunications infrastructure, is Roving Planet's new distribution partner for the European market.

    The agreement between the two companies provides CH2M Hill International Ltd./Equador with Roving Planet's comprehensive wireless network management, control and integration platform for European enterprise, service provider and telecommunications carrier customers, and gives Roving Planet a powerful, marquee-name European distribution partner who is highly experienced in large- scale, complex network construction and management. This significant distribution arrangement enables Roving Planet to deliver on its strategy to meet the growing needs of enterprise-class wireless local area networks (WLANs) for broadly capable wireless management and control systems while the number of enterprise WLAN deployments is increasing dramatically on a global basis. CH2M Hill International Ltd./Equador will become a significant partner for Roving Planet solutions in Europe, providing both sales and services, including installation, integration, and support services.

    "We are extremely pleased with what Roving Planet's solutions can do for our customers," said Mark Collins, CEO of CH2M Hill International Ltd./Equador. "Demand for wireless data network infrastructure management has emerged to become a major services opportunity for us. Roving Planet's elegant approach to solving many of the wireless LAN management challenges that our clients have makes this a highly valuable relationship."

    "This partnership will allow us to focus on the North American market with the knowledge and assurance that we're in good hands across the Atlantic," Mesch added. "CH2M Hill International's ability to deliver our CSD platform to customers in Europe will be instrumental in our efforts to keep up with today's mind-boggling rate of adoption of wireless LAN technologies around the globe. This deal will go a long way to help us meet our corporate objectives to establish similar strategic partnerships in other parts of the world."

    Roving Planet's Central Site Director (CSD) is a comprehensive wireless LAN management, control and integration solution that gives administrators a single platform for security, unparalleled visibility, resource management, and integration with existing systems and applications, which lowers overall costs for meeting key wireless LAN management requirements, improves administrative efficiency, and lowers ongoing operating costs. The functionality includes authentication, authorization, dynamic business policy and bandwidth management, performance diagnostics, and real-time visibility and reporting - all at a granular level, down to specific access point, time, user group, individual user, and application. The CSD's open architecture features an XML web-services framework and underlying gateways to facilitate simplified integration with legacy systems and enterprise wired and wireless-specific applications. Existing applications, systems, business practices, and organizational structure can all be tightly integrated with the policies that are needed to manage and control the behavior of applications and users running on the WLAN. Because the CSD platform works as an OSI Layer 2 bridge, it integrates easily with existing network infrastructure and topology.

    "We essentially bring order to what wireless network administrators commonly regard as the 'chaos' of wireless computing. CSD provides the same levels of management and security of wire-bound networks to wireless data network infrastructures," added Mesch.
