New York, NY, February 21, 2007–Extricom, a designer and manufacturer of high-performance, next generation wireless LAN infrastructure solutions, today announced it launched its first annual Education Grant Program. The program will offer a total of $1 Million worth of grant awards to qualified educational institutions throughout the United States and Canada.

The modern school is increasingly driven by technology, supporting both the educational process and the operation of the school campus itself. Wireless LAN plays an important role in that infrastructure, enabling network services to be quickly and cost-effectively extended, thereby maximizing access to learning and administrative resources.

"Education is the engine that drives our society and our economy," said David Confalonieri, vice president of marketing for Extricom. "The transformational power of wireless in any organization is also undeniable. By offering this Education Grant program, Extricom is pleased to contribute to the adoption of such critical infrastructure technology by our nation´s schools."

Extricom´s award-winning Interference-Free" WLAN System represents the next generation of enterprise Wi-Fi, with a fundamental shift in architecture from "cell-planning" to a "channel blanket" topology. Thanks to its innovative approach, WLAN deployment and maintenance is made dramatically easier and lower in total cost of ownership than traditional alternatives, while achieving a generational leap in capacity, coverage, seamless mobility, and security. The end-result is highly scalable WLAN infrastructure that delivers campus-wide voice, data, and video services with the dependability of a wired network.
