Mobilisa Wins Second Enterprise Wireless Contract
Spokane Area Communities in East Washington to Benefit
PORT TOWNSEND, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Mobilisa, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Intellicheck Mobilisa, Inc. (NYSE MKT: IDN), was awarded a contract from the Northwest Open Access Network (NoaNet) to provide high-speed wireless broadband capabilities to several schools and libraries in the Spokane area and Whitman Counties of Eastern Washington. The total project is valued at $283,948.
Mobilisa was selected by a committee of technical experts after a competitive bid and awarded a contract specifically focused on improving wireless broadband access for governmental, medical, educational, public safety as well as other important social services. Funding for the project is a grant from the National Telecommunications Information Administration's Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP) Round I program to NoaNet.
"Mobilisa won a competitive bid based upon a combination of price and technical factors. Work is expected to be completed by end of January 2013," said Rob Kopp, NoaNet's Chief Technology Officer.
In commenting on the impact of securing this new contract, Dr. Nelson Ludlow, CEO of Intellicheck Mobilisa, said: "We have competed for and won other wireless projects around the country, it is a special honor to have been selected to build a wireless network that will help students and citizens of these rural communities."
The wireless network Mobilisa is contracted to build is an extension of NoaNet's new fiber network. It is designed specifically to reach locations that would be difficult to access or cost-prohibitive to lay fiber. The Spokane County community benefits from the advantage wireless has of being cheaper than laying fiber while simultaneously serving as a good source of redundancy to existing fiber. This project is anticipated to be an excellent last-mile solution for transporting bandwidth to businesses and key institutions in the area.
