BFi OPTiLAS, a pan-European distributor with headquarters in Evry, France, has signed a distribution agreement with E-Band Communications Corp., a developer of multi-gigabit capacity wireless communication systems based on 70/80 GHz millimeter-wave radio technology. BFi OPTiLAS will market E-Band Communications’ line of Gigabit Ethernet wireless products throughout the United Kingdom and Europe.

E-Band’s technology provides solutions for interconnection and backhaul of 4G, WiMAX, LTE, and other mobile networks as well as Gigabit Ethernet last mile access, fiber backup, and network extension applications. The company’s Layer-1 system fits easily into existing networks because E-Link acts more like a piece of fiber than a complicated network element.

This allows the end customer to have a common network architecture whether they are using E-Band’s GigE wireless links, their own fiber or someone else’s dark fiber. This approach also allows for quick and easy installation into any existing network, which makes this product highly suitable for emergency and disaster recovery applications.

Kirk Byles, vice president of global sales at E-Band, commented, “BFi OPTiLAS has a proven ability to expand the GigE wireless market throughout the UK and Europe. Their focus on providing the right wireless product coupled with in-house design services and a history of providing outstanding pre-sales and post-sales support represents considerable value to E-Band as we welcome BFi OPTiLAS to be part of our team.”
