HONG KONG, Dec 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Altai Technologies Limited today announced that the Copa Claro Nokia Tennis Exhibition Matches in Buenos Aires, Argentina deployed Altai's Super WiFi Solution for wireless connectivity at the Estadio Tigre Tenis.  The Copa Claro Nokia exhibition matches, between Roger Federer vs Juan Martin Del Potro, were a 2-day event held on Dec 12-13, 2012. The exhibition matches created a buzz in Argentina attracting over 40,000 tennis lovers to attend this spectacular event.  Multiradio, a leading system integrator in Argentina was awarded the contract to design and build the wireless network using Altai Super WiFi equipment.

Claro was the main sponsor of the event and was responsible for providing WiFi connectivity to the working staff of the exhibition matches for ticket accreditation service as well as the press members that covered the event.  Hundreds of journalists attended the event creating a strong demand on outdoor wireless access.  Claro selected Altai's Super WiFi technology due to its superior performance and high reliability. The Altai A8, A8Ei, A8i and A2e were installed on a cellular tower to provide stable and high speed WiFi connectivity. 

Dr. Bill Wong, CTO & acting CEO of Altai Technologies said, "We are proud to be selected as the technology partner for such an important event.  Using cellular architecture similar to GSM, Altai equipment provides significantly larger coverage and higher throughput capacity than standard WiFi access points. Interference is managed through an Adaptive Interference Control system, which allows A8 series Super WiFi Base Stations to co-locate with 2.5G/3G cell sites.  As a result, it has greatly shortened the deployment time.  As well, most of the site acquisition costs, site rental, wired backhaul costs, radio planning works can be saved." 

The wireless network covered the entire 60,000 sq.m., and most traffic was photographers/journalists uploading pictures, videos and news reports together with the ticket validation system.  The Estadio Tigre Tenis is located in the town of Tigre, Buenos Aires of Argentina with a maximum seating capacity of 20,000.
