NTT Communications is using mesh networking equipment from Tropos to serve communities in Japan: The first deployment will cover the U.S. Marine Corps Air Station in Iwakuni. NTT may also use the gear to build networks in cities and rural areas and chose Tropos after conducting a trial in Tokyo.
Mesh technologies like that offered by Tropos are good options for a lot of applications, particularly in the absence of WiMax standard gear. Some Mesh network providers, like BelAir Networks, talk about incorporating WiMax into their systems in the future. The result could be ideal for certain city-wide deployments.
