ATLANTA, GA – August 16 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Camvera Networks, a wireless systems integrator, operator, and provider of fixed wireless Internet access solutions for small municipalities, today announced the expansion of Adel, Georgia’s wireless Internet system, Southlink.us, that will cover most of Cook County, Georgia. This expansion will provide a “wireless last mile solution” utilizing non-line-of-sight (NLOS) wireless technologies for coverage outside the city limits of Adel to surrounding areas including the City of Lenox, GA – the first city beyond Adel to obtain the new Southlink service. Additional expansion to other nearby cities is also planned.

The City of Adel launched its original wireless internet service almost 2 years ago in the heart of Adel. Its success created new demand for high-speed Internet in the surrounding cities such as Lenox, Sparks, Hahira, and Cecil, Georgia. Phase One, launched today, includes expanded service within Adel and new broadband service and coverage in Lenox. Phase Two, planned for late Fall 2005, will include coverage in Cecil and the surrounding areas covering all of Cook County, a coverage area of over 200 square miles.
The Southlink wireless project represents a multi-year contract between the City of Adel and Camvera Networks Inc, of Dunwoody, Georgia, to install and maintain the integrated network. Camvera Networks designed, engineered, and maintains the network that provides a wireless Internet network for the City of Adel that integrates Adel’s existing fiber system. This Hybrid-Fiber-Wireless (HFW) network also integrates Camvera’s OSS as well as wireless technologies from Navini, Waverider, and Motorola.
Together, the network brings symmetrical speeds of up to 3.0 Mbps to residents and businesses throughout Cook County, supporting high-speed fiber as well as pre-WiMAX wireless non-line-of- sight wireless connectivity.
“Southlink.us demonstrates a very successful public-private partnership not often found in today’s world and represents an essential and key component of our business model,” said John Overley, Vice President Sales and Marketing, Camvera Networks Inc. “The success Southlink.us has achieved thus far represents a win-win scenario for Adel, all of Cook County, and Camvera, “stated Jerry Permenter, Adel’s City Manager.
