Toronto Hydro Telecom Selects Siemens for Mesh Wi-Fi

Siemens will supply a mesh Wi-Fi network for Toronto Hydro Telecom, which plans to build the largest ubiquitous Wi-Fi zone in Canada. Negotiations relating to the terms and conditions of equipment supply, implementation and services are ongoing and have not yet been finalized. It is anticipated that the deployment covering ten square kilometers will be fully deployed in downtown Toronto by year-end 2006.

Siemens' "Wireless Integration@vantage" wireless integration platform uses software from Garderos Software Innovations, a wholly-owned Siemens subsidiary. The network nodes are from the "Siemens Mesh@vantage MR" product family, based on industry-leading wireless mesh technology from BelAir Networks.
