Siemens wins mesh WiFi project in Toronto

Siemens scored a big deal with Toronto Hydro Telecom to make Toronto the largest ubiquitous WiFi zone in Canada. Negotiations relating to the terms and conditions of equipment supply, implementation and services are ongoing and have not yet been finalized. BelAir Networks, however, is the underlying mesh technology. Siemens is using network nodes based on BelAir's technology. The agreement with Toronto Hydro Telecom marks Siemens' entry into the Canadian wireless technology market and will provide coverage for an area of up to 10 sq. km and it is anticipated that it will be fully deployed in downtown Toronto by year-end 2006.
