Itasca, IL, Feb. 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ITASCA, Ill. - February 22, 2013 - Lemko Corporation and Partner Challenge Networks are working together to deploy LTE-Over-Satellite mobile broadband solution for the Telecom Service Kiribati Limited (TSKL), a 22 island nation located in the central Pacific Ocean.

Lemko's solution solves complex issues of remoteness by eliminating backhaul to a central or hosted core. This will uniquely position the Republic of Kiribati to offer richly featured, high quality services at a price point that meets their needs.

"It's a privilege to work with TSKL and Lemko to build a revolutionary network in what is perhaps one of the most technically challenging locations in the world for mobile technology. The highly distributed nature of the population coupled with the technical and commercial difficulties of only having satellite backhaul make this a very exciting project," says Simon Lardner, Managing Director at Challenge Networks.

Lemko utilizes some of the most innovative and cutting edge application developments in mobile solutions including the use of LTE over satellite, meshed satellite networks and a distributed and virtualized mobile core. Lemko's LTE- Over-Satellite overcomes traditional mobile network barriers so countries like Kiribati can have connectivity to every island, each other, and to the rest of the world via satellite.

"Lemko believes that architecture drives strategy. Lemko's DiMoWiNe™ (Distributed Mobile Wireless Network) radically changes the economics of deploying 4G networks by offering an all-IP Internet architecture with a compellingly disruptive price point that overcomes traditional barriers to deploying carrier grade LTE solutions," says Michael Sisto, Vice President, Sales at Lemko Corporation.

Lemko offers Cellular R&D Workshops to clients to solve the constraints of traditional cellular deployments with over 150 cellular use cases including "Remoteness" to support unique and complex "Anti-Fragile" wireless architecture requirements.
