Business description: MetroFi builds community area networks that deliver multi-megabit consumer wireless Internet access. Using enhanced technology based on the popular Wi-Fi (802.11) standard, MetroFi combines a new level of affordability with the convenience of portability to offer highly competitive broadband access services. MetroFi takes a holistic approach to network rollout, activating an entire community at once for pervasive broadband coverage. Using proven 802.11 a/b/g technologies with enhancements, MetroFi creates a robust wireless network designed for reliable high-speed connectivity.MetroFi’s unique network architecture overcomes deployment obstacles by providing multiple redundant paths for data. The network uses roof-top mounted antennae that transmit data via radios mounted on light poles throughout the community. These radios translate the signals to 802.11b/g for transmission to the customer – providing standards-based broadband access for any Wi-Fi enabled device, anywhere in the network. To optimize the service, MetroFi provides easy-to-install customer premises equipment (CPE) that creates a secure, high-performance link to the Internet.
