World's Largest Rural Wi-Fi Broadband Network Deployed
Posted: 20-Feb-2004 [Source: MobileTechNews]

[Syndeo selects Tropos Networks as supplier for a 13-square mile Wi-Fi network in LaFayette, Louisiana to be showcased during their Mardi Gras celebration.]

By Jean Panke, Mobile Tech News -- Syndeo, using Tropos Networks 5110 Wi-Fi cells, has unwired over 13 square miles of Lafayette, Louisiana creating the world's largest rural Wi-Fi broadband network. The focus of the Syndeo deployments is to provide high-bandwidth application access to education, business, residential, and municipality customers in areas traditionally neglected by wireline broadband providers.

The network is accessible via standard 802.11 client devices. In addition, a piece of customer premise equipment (CPE) extends the wireless signal to structures in more remote and less densely populated areas. With the successful deployment of the network, each subscriber now has access to true broadband connectivity (>1 Mbps).

The network will also be fully utilized during the upcoming Lafayette Mardi Gras celebration. In order to help ensure the safety of the 500,000 revelers expected at the event, the Acadian Ambulance service will use the network to wirelessly connect to real-time ambulance dispatch from a central command post providing better response time in the case of emergencies.

Syndeo plans to continue working with Tropos to further expand its wireless service throughout a multi-parish area in Louisiana. Announcements of future deployments are expected over the next several months.
