Tropos Networks and The Cloud, the largest hotspot operator in Europe, announced a collaboration to deliver metro-scale mesh networks to city centers in the U.K. and Europe. The Cloud has its largest networks in Europe--the U.K., Germany and Sweden--with the goal to take its hotspots as a seed and expand the footprint to create city-center markets or metro-WiFi-sized hotspots. Muni-WiFi was largely a U.S. phenomenon last year but is now making large inroads in Europe with The Cloud announcing some ambitious coverage plans in some of Europe's largest cities.
