Scientific-Atlanta Teams with Tropos on Metro Wi-Fi Mesh

Scientific-Atlanta will expand its hybrid fiber-coax (HFC) solutions for cable operators to include Tropos Networks' MetroMesh Wi-Fi products. The companies will collaborate on both strand-mounting, coaxial powering options and fiber converters for the Tropos 5210 MetroMesh routers. These cable-optimized products will be sold through Scientific-Atlanta, enabling cable operators to integrate Tropos' MetroMesh functionality into HFC systems, thereby providing customers with broadband mobility.

Tropos' MetroMesh architecture uses a Predictive Wireless Routing Protocol to allow network operators to quickly deliver city-wide fixed and mobile multi-megabit connectivity for IP- based voice, video and data applications. http://www.scientificatlanta.com/http://www.tropos.com/
