Telecom and Municipality

From infrastructure to advanced rural communications.



Trends are showing that the rapidly increasing bandwidth demands from mobile users is exceeding current 3G Mobile Infrastructure investments. With more WiFi enabled smart devices and mobile PC’s accessing the 3G Infrastructure for data usage, users are starting to see the impact of degraded internet browsing and rich media application performance.

In order to retain subscriber loyalty and satisfy users never ending demands for more bandwidth, carriers have to deploy alternative solutions or incur the cost of moving quickly to a 4G infrastrucure. WiFi hotspots are a cost effective bridging technology between 3G Mobile, WiMAX, Cable Broadband services and the growing 4G networks.



Metro Area Hot-zones can provide a host of benefits to cities and municipalities, whether improving upon existing governmental systems, or adding new services and systems that can improve productivity, benefit residents, enable revitalization of city gathering areas, and make the city a more attractive location for tourists or conventioneers. Metro Area WiFi Hot-zones can provide cities and municipalities with a host of benefits, for example:

• City wide high-speed Internet access for residents, businesses, and government organizations

• Ad-hoc networks for conventions, festivals, special events or emergencies

• Improve security by deploying of city-wide security and surveillance systems

• Provide continuous updates for public transportation such as buses and trains that can be monitored wirelessly.

• Increase productivity by giving city employees network access while working in the field

• Improve service and shorten response times by monitoring utilities and other municipal services more closely in real time

Municipal councils and local government can leverage the same Hot-zone network to generate multiple sources of revenue without additional capital expenditure. In addition, there can opportunities for cost savings for automated services. Internet access via the Hot-zone can be monetized to provide additional revenue which can offset the cost of the installation or provide additional recurring revenue for use in other capital projects.
