Metro Wi-Fi Mesh Network : Self-healing mesh network of nodes can be accessed by any Wi-Fi-equipped device

Metro GirlTelabria has supplied over two hundred mSystem APM-300 mesh devices to provide Wi-Fi connectivity in a hotzone across the city of Norwich and up to 28 hotspots in the district of South Norfolk. The entire network was designed and built by Synetrix. The project is the largest community wireless broadband network in the UK. More than two hundred Telabria APM-300 dual radio mesh devices have been attached to street structures to create the network. Nine clusters of APM-300s are backhauled over WiMAX-class point-to-multipoint infrastructure to a 40Mbps Internet feed. The network can be accessed by any Wi-Fi-equipped device including laptops, PDAs, and web-enabled mobile phones. The Telabria mSystem APM-300 is a rugged, outdoor dual radio mesh device; one radio provides network access for any Wi-Fi-enabled device within range, while the second radio communicates with other neighboring APM-300s to create a self-forming, self-healing mesh network of nodes over which traffic passes to the nearest WiMAX backhaul point.
