PORTLAND , Ore., March 31 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Catcher Holdings, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: CTHH), (http://www.catcherinc.com), a leader in ruggedized integrated mobile computing and Wi-Fi/Wi-MAX communication platforms announced the installation of their largest Vivato Network Solution to date.

The initial $611,000 contract will provide high speed wireless network coverage for approximately one-fifth of the 2,700 acre luxury destination resort complex. The network will cover a rise and fall of topologically diverse terrain, as well as the resort complex's first hotel property and its mix of residential units encompassing bungalows, villas, condominiums and towers. The developer is currently implementing plans to expand the solution to cover the entire 2,700 acre complex.

Wireless connectivity is key to the hotelier's guest experience plan and operational business model. As an example, 2-way radios standard in most hotels will be replaced with VoIP phones; guests will be able to access data services throughout the property; and via their own network switch, the hotelier will offer guests VoIP devices to make wireless calls at a fraction of the domestic rate card.

The Catcher/Vivato system's unobtrusive and rapid installation, in this instance approximately one month, gives the resort developer the luxury of retaining natural environments while not sacrificing state of the art conveniences like high bandwidth wireless connectivity regardless of whether guests are on the championship golf course, sunning beachside, or having dinner at a 5-star restaurant.

"The hospitality industry continues to expand the use of wireless for their guests into areas like pools, extended outdoor venues, and golf courses, which are not easily covered with traditional wireless access points. We believe we are paving a new path for extreme wireless connectivity within master planned resorts," commented Gary Haycox, Catcher Holdings Chief Executive Officer. "Use of our systems offer significantly reduced wireless infrastructure costs and the ability to deliver sufficient amounts of bandwidth to support all forms of wireless devices, be they computing, VoIP, or entertainment based. Our systems also enable the resort operator to create a revenue center while guests benefit from less expensive rates than with standard wireless calling plans. We anticipate an exceptional future relative to the hospitality industry and master planned communities."
