The Wireless City

less than 1 minute read


This week’s NY Times City Section has an article on wireless access in New York City’s busiest park, Bryant Park. The director of the park has installed a free 802.11b network with complete coverage of the park with help from NYC Wireless. From the article: ‘With some clever engineering and hardware from Cisco Systems and Intel, the wireless park was born. Just as park users could sit wherever they liked, so too could they gain access where they liked. The eight-megabytes-per-second connection was as free as the sunshine and the green grass.’ NYC Wireless is currently working with the Parks Dept. to put similar networks in Madison Square and Tompkins Square Parks.
