San Francisco -- Vivato(TM), an extended reach wireless systems infrastructure company, today announced that the City of Spokane has selected Vivato's 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi Outdoor Switch and Wi-Fi Bridge Router to create the nation's largest city-wide wireless network to support city services and boost local economic development with public access Wi-Fi.

Spokane, the largest city in eastern Washington state, with a population of 196,000, has undertaken a downtown renaissance that includes extending its "connectivity quotient." In collaboration, the city, Vivato, Itronix, a developer of wireless, rugged mobile computing systems, the Downtown Spokane Partnership, a private, non-profit downtown membership organization, Purcell Systems, a provider of modular, outdoor enclosures, and broadband provider OneEighty Networks will collaborate to provide wireless service to the 100-block downtown area. The downtown "Hot Zone" will improve city services by facilitating intelligent policing, quicker fire and rescue response, and will support e-government initiatives and a more productive mobile workforce. The project also will allow the public to use the wireless network, making Spokane's downtown more attractive for citizens, high-tech businesses and visitors.

Following the downtown wireless project, the city will phase in expansion of wireless connectivity to the area around the Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena, the South Hill medical complexes, the University District and the Spokane International Airport.

Vivato's 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi Outdoor Switch is designed to extend the reach of Wi-Fi through its unique PacketSteering(TM) technology that directs Wi-Fi capacity to active 802.11b clients through an electronically-controlled, phased array antenna, enabling unprecedented coverage. This unique architecture allows Vivato's switches to transmit high-gain wireless beams over a distance of 2.5 miles outdoors with direct line of sight, and shorter distances without direct line of sight.
