New Rochelle Municipal Wi-Fi

CEDX reports that the City of New Rochelle uses Sputnik to manage its municipal Wi-Fi network. HD Communications is the system integration and operations subcontractor, with Wireless Edge being the prime. We installed a Motorola Canopy/Tropos MetroMesh solution as the first phase of an eventual city wide network. The management backend is a Sputnik system.

From the press release:

Ralph DiBart, the BID Executive Director, noted that the Wi-Fi Network provides a valuable and free communications link for a wide range of constituents in the New Rochelle BID area. "As the City rebuilds downtown New Rochelle for the new century, the BID wants to insure that our technology infrastructure also looks to the future. Wireless communication is no longer an amenity but a necessity for a vibrant business community."

New Rochelle Mayor Noam Bramson noted, "This is an exciting development for New Rochelle in several respects. It makes New Rochelle the first in the region to be equipped with this technology on a large scale and it’s another example of the continuing commitment of the BID to help move forward New Rochelle’s economic revitalization strategy for downtown with innovation and vision.”
