(PresseBox) ( Leuven/Minneapolis, )
GetWireless, a national distributor of cellular-based solutions, today announced a North American distribution agreement with Option (EURONEXT Brussels: OPTI; OTC: OPNVY), a global leader in wireless broadband technology. GetWireless will now be a premier North American distributor for Option's GlobeSurfer® III broadband router and the iCON® 452 USB modem, some of the first products of their kind to operate on the AWS frequency band in the United States.

The GlobeSurfer III, a broadband router with Wi-Fi and voice, and the iCON 452, a high-end USB-modem offering worldwide connectivity, are welcome additions to the GetWireless product suite. The demand for AWS compatible products is far greater than what is currently available in the North American marketplace.

Option, headquartered in Leuven (Belgium), has established an impressive reputation for creating innovative products that enhance the performance and functionality of wireless communications, with an emphasis on addressing broadband cellular solutions as their distribution landscape broadens.

"Option is very excited about the opportunity to partner with a value-added distributor such as GetWireless and to bring its GlobeSurfer III wireless router and iCON452 USB-modem to the broader North American market" commented Chip Frederking, Option Global VP of Sales.

"By adding these cutting-edge devices our portfolio of wireless solutions, we will fill a need amongst AWS service providers and their customers," said Brian Taney, Chief Executive Officer of GetWireless. "The Option products will be a great fit for many of our partners."
