EarthLink Selected for Wi-Fi Net in Anaheim, a Tropos Mesh

The City of Anaheim awarded an exclusive franchise to EarthLink to build out an open Wi-Fi broadband network. In the first phase, EarthLink will construct a two-square-mile proof-of-concept area for testing and analysis. The remainder of the city's network will be completed by the fourth quarter of 2006. The network will be 'open access' so that multiple, competing providers can offer their services to consumers and businesses.

EarthLink plans to deploy Tropos Networks' MetroMesh Wi-Fi routers on light poles throughout the city.
