RoamAD said it is licensing its software but won’t sell hardware any more: RoamAD’s software enables mesh Wi-Fi networks. Customers can either buy access points from companies that already make them according to RoamAD’s reference design or they can cobble together their own access points based on RoamAD direction using off-the-shelf radios.
This kind of change is an indication of the maturity of the market. Wi-Fi hardware is becoming so cheaply available that margins are slim for specialty vendors so they are concentrating on software that can give them an edge over other vendors.
RoamAD plans to migrate to support WiMax.
