Wednesday 9 April 2014 OR YEHUDA, Israel, April 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Magic Software Enterprises Ltd. (NASDAQ and TASE: MGIC), a global provider of software platforms for enterprise mobility, cloud applications, and business integration, announced today that it has provided consulting services for two strategic communication and infrastructure projects for the Tel Aviv-Yafo Municipality through its Comm-IT subsidiary. The two complex projects included the architecture design and testing for an optical fiber broadband network ("Metro" project) and the design of the tender for a city-wide wireless internet project. Intended to save communication and infrastructure costs, the Metro network will support thousands of phone lines and security cameras around the city, serving various municipal systems and act as the infrastructure for future systems. The wireless project will enable Tel Aviv residents and visitors to surf the web and get wireless access through 150 access points distributed along 80 sites around the city, including parks and main streets. Comm-IT audited the city's existing infrastructure and defined technical, commercial and maintenance aspects to maximize value to residents while minimizing costs. "It's exciting to work for a forward-thinking municipality like Tel Aviv–Yafo that takes advantage of advanced technology to provide its residents and visitors with high quality infrastructure that can also reduce costs. For instance, the Metro project enables the municipality to avoid the costs of digging optic fiber infrastructure and to eliminate monthly payments to traditional communication providers," said Anatoly Koushnir, CTO at Comm-IT. "Both projects showcase Comm-IT's ability to execute strategic planning for large, complex infrastructure projects. Our team are experts in translating the requirements and needs of our customers into technological solutions of the highest quality, with full transparency, and in strict compliance with the project's schedule and budget," added Koushnir.
