Nortel Offers Wi-Fi Hotspot Solution for MSOs

Nortel introduced a wireless local area network product that enable cable operators (MSOs) to provide access to secure high-speed Internet and network services at 'hotspots' in public locations and residential neighborhoods. The solution consists of three components: a strand-mounted Access Point (APU) Unit; a Corporate Services Unit (CSU) that receives wireless signals from the APU; and a choice of directional or omni-directional antennas. When in hotspot mode, users connect directly to the Access Point Unit using Wi-Fi enabled devices such as laptops and PDAs.
