Another fine mesh: Siemens on board for Toronto Wi-Fi project

9 May 2006

Toronto Hydro Telecom’s plan to build a Wi-Fi mesh network covering ten square kilometres in the city took a step forward with the recent announcement that German vendor Siemens Communications has been selected to supply equipment and provide implementation and support services for the project. Toronto Hydro Telecom aims to have Wi-Fi coverage of downtown Toronto by the end of this year, and is deploying Siemen’s ‘Wireless Integration@vantage’ platform to achieve its goal.
