Las Vegas pilots mesh network

Las Vegas is set to flip the switch on a wireless broadband pilot based on mesh networking technology from MeshNetworks Inc. of Maitland, Fla.

The city's Traffic Engineering Department and Nevada's Freeway and Arterial System of Transportation group are joining in the trial to test wireless mesh technology for traffic management applications.

Other agencies, including public safety and code enforcement agencies, also will have access to the network, which initially will cover only the downtown area. At the end of the pilot, Las Vegas will have the option to expand the network to cover the city's entire 58 square miles.
