1000 Wireless Mesh Node Project Announced

Author: John Honovich, Published on Nov 10, 2009

Firetide has announced a 1000 wireless node project for the Seoul Korea subway system. Firetide commented that this is one of their largest transportation project. From our review of publicly announced wireless video surveillance deployments, this seems to be one of the largest overall. In dollar terms, 1000 wireless nodes is likely worth about $2 Million USD which we believe is a sizable project for Firetide.

The announcement states that no other wireless vendor's equipment could match Firetide's performance. However, Firetide did not disclose who the competition specifically was for this project.
