Mobile voice over Wi-Fi at 130km/h

[RoamAD and Wi-VOD successfully deploy a Wi-Fi mobile network as part of a Homeland Security grant in Arizona. Wi-VOD made multi-party VoIP conference calls at speeds in excess of 130 kmp (80mph).]

Auckland, New Zealand -- The world's first highway Wi-Fi mobile voice and high speed data network has been successfully tested on a US interstate highway, the Canamex Interstate Highway (I-19) from Rio Rico to a point south of Green Valley, Arizona.

New Zealand-based RoamAD, a leading supplier of infrastructure-mesh solutions for scalable metro Wi-Fi networks, announced that Wi-VOD Corporation deployed the RoamAD technology as part of a United States Department of Homeland Security grant, managed by the Arizona Telecommunications and Information Council.

The network will service First Responders (Police, Fire, Ambulance, and Border Patrol), with various community agencies, schools, business and local residents being added as the deployment expands beyond its targeted coverage areas. The network will be used for both voice services and for high-speed data applications including transmission of maps, photos and real time video.

Commenting on the test Chief Mike Foster, Rio Rico Fire Department said: "We needed to increase our ability to communicate in the field. Having mobile voice and high-speed Internet access in our mobile units on the highways delivers what we are looking for. The speed at which the mobile VoIP worked was very impressive. It will greatly increase our in-field communications and effectiveness," he said.

Wi-VOD demonstrated the first phase of the network, 4.9 miles (8 km), earlier this month. The network contained four RoamAD network nodes located on average 1.2 miles (less than 2 km) apart and interconnected wirelessly. The network will be expanded to cover 32 continuous miles (54 km) of highway and is scheduled for completion before May of this year.

The RoamAD solution is specifically optimized to support mobile voice over IP (VoIP) and high-speed mobile data.

Wi-VOD was able to make multi-party VoIP conference calls at speeds in excess of 130 kilometres per hour (80mph) sustained over the entire network.

Allan Meiusi, CEO and Founder, Wi-VOD said that Wi-VOD was delighted with the performance of the RoamAD solution. "For more than a year we've been looking to create a network capable of supporting mobile VoIP and data for First Responders as well as local businesses and residents," said Mr Meiusi. "Now we have it!"
