KT Deploys Firetide Wireless Mesh for Weather Net

KT completed the first phase of installing Firetide's wireless mesh networking gear covering portions of Jeju and Woo islands off the southern coast of Korea. The mesh network spans a large geographical area, covering 204 square kilometers, or 80 square miles, and replaces a legacy network provided by KT for the Korea Meteorological Administration (KMA) to monitor weather systems in the region. The mesh networks provide a fully wireless infrastructure that connects remote weather forecasting equipment and video cameras to the KMA's network.

Each Firetide mesh node has multiple Ethernet ports that allow any wired networking device, including video cameras and weather sensors, to operate wirelessly over the mesh without modification or additional configuration.
