BridgeWave Communications has announced a strategic distribution agreement with Streakwave Wireless.

Streakwave is a leading value-added distributor of wireless connectivity products.

Within the agreement, Streakwave, headquartered in California, will market and sell BridgeWave millimeter wave and microwave systems to value-added resellers (VARs), service providers, and systems integrators.

The agreement will initially cover Australia, New Zealand, U.S., Canada and Mexico.

It was only last week that BridgeWave announced its newest 80GHz point-to-point system, the Flex4G-5000, and has already received a positive response from the market.

According to BridgeWave, the Flex4G-5000 offers operators an alternative to fiber in dense urban areas. It also provides public and private network operators with a backhaul system that quickly scales to meet future capacity requirements.

Joshua Farlow, executive vice president of worldwide sales at Streakwave, says adding the BridgeWave portfolio of wireless point-to-point backhaul solutions to their catalog expands their current offering.

"BridgeWave's newest multi-gigabit systems, available at very competitive price points, will help our customers respond to the demands for higher capacity across all markets,” he explains.

“We are very pleased to partner with BridgeWave and believe that it will lead to a long and mutually beneficial relationship."

Sanjay Nagpal, senior vice president of global sales and marketing, BridgeWave Communications, and SAGE Satcom, says BridgeWave's growth is poised to accelerate.

"Streakwave's value-added approach to serving customers, along with the company's technical expertise and international footprint, will undoubtedly prove to be a great asset as we continue to deliver wireless multi-gigabit solutions to ease network capacity constraints."
