Metro-Zone 802.11 Wireless
Extending the coverage and range of traditional public-access WiFi to make wireless Internet services more useful to more people is one of the most important parts of efforts to salvage the wobbly 802.11 hotspot business.

As a result, innovation in wireless backhaul, wireless mesh, and antenna systems, mixed with crossover technology from enterprise and carrier networking, is creating a new class of metro-area 802.11 equipment that will transform the coverage potential of public-access WiFi.

Combined with industry trends, such as wireless VOIP, bundled services, mixed-use public and private networks, and the emergence of specialist roaming brokers, this new breed of equipment could take the hotspot sector to a whole new level.

This report looks specifically at equipment and software vendors that extend the idea of single-location hotspot networks out to larger, hot-zone and metro-area networks in large public venues, on campuses, and outdoors.

Sample research data from the report is shown in the excerpts below:
