HUNTSVILLE, AL--This week at the 2009 Digital Signage Expo Conference in Las Vegas AvaLAN Wireless Systems announced the new AW900xTP and the new AW5800xTP ultra long range wireless Ethernet solutions. The new products combine a unique set of features that make them ideal to deliver content to outdoor digital signs. No other company can match the price-performance characteristics of AvaLAN's products. An AvaLAN radio pair can bridge a 30 mile distance without sacrificing bandwidth, security or performance. The AW900xTP and AW5800xTP products enable Ethernet connectivity for fringe IP devices, including digital signage media players or digital billboard surveillance cameras. AvaLAN products are an ideal replacement for installations where WiFi systems are under-performing or failing completely due to insufficient range, excessive interference or unsatisfactory reliability.
“AvaLAN is now offering an innovative way to reduce installation costs of outdoor digital signage systems,” said Matt Nelson, CEO and President of AvaLAN Wireless. “The New AW900xTP and AW5800xTP products offer outdoor digital signage customers a great way to improve their ROI by reducing installation costs and eliminating expensive monthly wireless network costs.”
Outdoor digital signage has a proven ability to generate more revenue through better utilization of the same physical space. The outdoor digital signage industry is continuing to grow at an accelerated pace. AvaLAN Wireless Systems provide ultra long range industrial wireless internet connectivity for outdoor digital signage. AvaLAN has over 20,000 industrial wireless devices deployed that enable Ethernet device connectivity at the edge of the Internet. Most outdoor digital signage utilizes local advertising content. If the source is within 40 miles of the digital billboard, this local content can be wirelessly serviced through a “closed” industrial wireless network instead of an expensive cellular type network. Typical 3G or cellular data services can range from $30 to $50 per sign each month. A company that manages a digital signage network of 100 signs could save over $60,000 per year by using an AvaLAN Wireless network. AvaLAN’s wireless solutions can save installation costs in outdoor digital signage by significantly reducing the cost of connecting to digital signage located across paved parking lots. AvaLAN has offered wireless digital signage connectivity through OEM partnerships and is now offering similar solutions under the “AvaLAN” brand. AvaLAN anticipates new growth coming from the digital signage market and through solving customer’s needs with reliable and robust wireless solutions.
