Metro Wi-Fi Solutions


Metro Wi-Fi Solutions

The local area network (LAN) revolutionized the way business was done, and the Wireless LAN (WLAN) has moved mobile computing to the next level. Now another big shift is coming - to last-mile broadband internet access and services.

The primary benefit of Metro Wi-Fi is to improve communication services in metropolitan areas and create a competitive environment for broadband services. For city governments and VARs that help these municipalities build and manage wireless networks, Metro Wi-Fi can open a wide range of opportunities.

Similar to ad hoc networks, these systems enable each user node to provide host functionalities and facilitate higher-level routing functions. Market trends are driving an increase in the breadth of new wide-area wireless technologies. The benefits to municipalities include but are not limited to:
  • Reduction of Telecommunications costs
  • Focus on continuous connections rather than partitioned hot spots.
  • Reduction in opportunity cost due to better utilization of municipal employees
  • New sources of revenue for cities
  • Scalable and cost-efficient solutions
  • Increased reliability
  • Broadband access for low-income families
  • Elimination of bottle necks
  • Support for mobile applications
  • Self-healing features (multiple paths through the network increase hardware redundancy)
  • Support of the 4900Ghz Public Safety band
  • Elimination of wired security constraints by supporting permanent and temporary wireless solutions.

TESSCO delivers several different options for your Metro Wi-Fi needs.


BelAir Networks

BelAir Networks provides the industrys first multi-radio wireless networking nodes for building high-capacity wireless networks. By supporting multiple spectrum bands on a single mesh deployment, parallel operation of client access and backhaul traffic is therefore separated, avoiding the contention found in traditional mesh deployments. They also provide seamless mobility for uninterrupted service.

Motorola Canopy

Motorola Canopy Hot Zone provides a robust scalable platform that combines unlicensed Wi-Fi radios, Canopy system backhauls, and management functionality along with public Wi-Fi access to the Metropolitan economy. Motorola Canopy is also extremely robust against interference and provides the user with a simple, fast deployment with easy installation.


Firetide provides an instant Mesh Networking solution that is ideal for building backbone infrastructure in Wi-Fi applications. Firetides HotPort high performance mesh network provides high capacity, self-healing wireless mesh backbone for outdoor and indoor networks. The HotPort family includes a multi-port 10/100 Ethernet switch for each node, VLAN capability, traffic prioritization, remote management, creating secure reliable wireless networks for video, voice and data.


The SkyPilot solution utilizes patent-pending synchronous mesh architecture with high-speed switched directional antenna arrays that extend reach, mitigates interference, and maximizes spectral reuse. The intelligent eight-way directional antenna array provides 360 degrees coverage and enables longer distances between mesh nodes (up to 10 miles or 16 kilometer)to lower deployment densities without sacrificing throughput or reliability resulting in lower deployment costs per square. SkyPilot systems provide a multi-service platform that expands beyond Wi-Fi into direct residential/ small business broadband access, VoIP, automated meter reading, and video surveillance.
