  • Infrastructure mesh technology provides municipal, industrial and enterprise users with the bandwidth needed to expand the reach of their existing networks, while adding a variety of fixed and mobile applications: city-wide video surveillance, traffic management and intelligent transportation systems, Wi-Fi access for mobile city workers and wireless broadband for underserved areas.Firetide MIMO Mesh infrastructure offers throughput reliability and security of wire, with up to 300Mbps outdoor and 400Mbps indoor of user throughput.Convenient Upgrade PathsHotPort 7000 mesh nodes ship as 802.11a/b/g/n dual-radio capable hardware, with enhanced functionality enabled through software licenses. Projects that do not require 802.11n MIMO capacity or dual-radio capability can start with 802.11a/b/g-enabled single radio configuration. Dual-radio functionality can easily be enabled through a software license. Similarly, a separate software license can enable MIMO functionality for operation in 40 MHz channels, and to take advantage of 802.11n technology for maximum throughput.
