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 Count 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.
