Strix Systems Deploys In Greece
Calabasas-based Strix Systems, a manufacturer of wireless mesh networking hardware, said today that it is deploying its hardware in a municipal mesh network in Galatsi, Greece. Galatsi will use the firm's hardware as part of a fee-based broadband service for residents and businesses. The install comes as part of a 4 sq. km. deployment in the city's center. The network will allow municipal employees with access to data, and will also be used for VoIP and video by municipal police. Financial size of the install was not disclosed. Strix Systems manufacturers wireless hardware which provides WiFi connectivity and automatically connects wirelessly to each other; the hardware enables creation of wireless networks without requiring all of the wireless access points to be wired into a high speed connection.
