Japanese Cities To Get High-Speed Wireless Mesh Broadband

More than 100 Japanese cities with a combined population of 50 million will get mesh broadband service in a massive network rollout from NTT West and Strix Systems, according to an announcement Monday by Strix.

The mesh network will operate in the 4.9 to 5.0 GHz frequency and provide broadband service to corporate enterprises and municipalities. Some spectrum will be allocated for use by public safety and emergency services, Strix said.

The deployment will utilize Strix's Access/One Network Outdoor Wireless System (OWS) and its Indoor Wireless System (IWS) to deliver wireless voice, video and data services. The installation will also be supported by design and maintenance services supplied by Network Value Components.

Strix said its antenna technology will enable NTT West to bridge the connection among rural villages in the rollout of the wireless technology
