Ericsson Develops Wi-Fi on Wheels for Comcast

Ericsson has packed six Wi-Fi access points into a Ford Transit 350 cargo van for what it calls "Wi-Fi on Wheels."

The mobile Wi-Fi unit, which has an range of about 500 feet, could provid coverage to as many as 2,500 people. It was developed in conjunction with Comcast.

The van is equipped for multiple network access connections, non-line-of-sight (NLOS) microwave backhaul, and onboard backup power and modular deployment elements.

"Driving innovation means not only bringing the best technology, but also enabling it to be used in new ways,” explains Angel Ruiz, President and CEO of Ericsson North America. "This new rapid deployment solution will mean fast dispatch and hassle-free setup for Comcast, so they can bring coverage to new hard-to-reach locations."
