The Cloud Plans European Wi-Fi Expansion with Tropos

Tropos Networks and The Cloud, the largest hot spot operator in Europe, announced a collaboration to deliver metro-scale mesh networks to city centers in the UK and Europe. The collaborative deployments will begin in 2006. Both parties anticipate the adoption of the joint solution to be aggressive, with a number of European projects to be announced during the year.

The Cloud's networks are open to any service provider who would like to provide advanced wireless services to their customers.

The Tropos MetroMesh architecture allows multiple user communities to operate on a single wireless infrastructure, with each group afforded the opportunity for individual security and authentication settings, bandwidth provisioning and unique network identification.
