SPOTLIGHT: N.O. to expand WiFi after post-Katrina success

A New Orleans official said the city will expand its WiFi network after witnessing how well it performed during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The WiFi system was originally launched as part of Mayor Ray Nagin's seven-step plan to fight city crime. Cameras were deployed to monitor critical infrastructure and to provide evidence that could be used in court. According to the city official, the system was durable, suffering minor damage, and it was the first to go back online after the storm. Article
