First City-Wide Wireless Mesh Network Deployed in Mumbai, India




January 30, 2007 By

LifeStyle Networks Pvt. Ltd. of Mumbai, India, has now selected Strix's carrier-class Access/One Network Outdoor Wireless Systems (OWS) for the deployment of the first city-wide wireless mesh network in India.

Mumbai (formerly Bombay) is one of the most densely populated cities in the world, with over 18 million people. To serve this population there are nearly 1,000 radios already in operation and more than 2,000 additional radios will be operational before mid-2007.

LifeStyle addresses the issues of the incumbent cable operator by offering a better last-mile alternative, including broadband Internet, IP video surveillance, streaming video conferencing, and mobile roaming, to corporate enterprise, industrial, government, and residential customers throughout Mumbai.

LifeStyle chose Strix Access/One OWS after testing single, dual, and multi-radio products from all major mesh network vendors. According to a company statement, Strix's carrier-class technology provides the industry's highest throughput, lowest latency, highest capacity, greatest geographic coverage, and the ability to provide the fastest hand-off times for mobile roaming. Strix products also offer simplified deployment and require fewer wired backhauls than competing products.

"LifeStyle chose the Strix Access/One OWS because only Strix could truly support a network of this scope and size," said Abhishek Javeri, managing director of LifeStyle Networks Pvt Ltd. "Strix Access/One products deliver as advertised, allowing us to deploy a high-performance system in far less time than otherwise possible."

"With this deployment in India, we've achieved another industry first. Strix's superior architecture has undoubtedly captured the attention of a world-class audience," said Jim Mooreland, vice president of worldwide sales at Strix. "Our products are proven through exhaustive testing by independent agencies, and customer testimonials reinforce the strength of Strix Systems and the success of our Access/One architecture."
