Pleasanton, California (PressExposure) January 27, 2007 -- âThe business person who is working at lunch, traveling through the area will stop into Pleasanton and maybe eat here and conduct their business because they know thereâs free internetâ, said Allen Hammond, information service manager for the City of Pleasanton, California. âThere will be 95% continuous coverage provided by NetworkAnatomy is that area and 100% in coverage areas that we know people are going to congregate such as the coffee houses and restaurantsâ, Hammond continued. NetworkAnatomy was chosen through the competitive bid process to design, construct and turn on the cityâs Municipal wireless network or MUNI. These networks take into account the needs of two specific groups; Public Safety and Public Access. The FCC has designed the 4.9GHz frequency to Public Safety which allows dedicated access for the city management and responders to use. Separately the 5.8GHz wireless band is dedicated for open public access. These two networks provide the complete broad band backhaul required to service and support thousands of end users and guests.
According to MuniWireless.com it is estimated that more than 300 municipalities across the nation are now looking into or have set up paid and free wireless networks for residents, businesses and visitors. Nearly all have deployed WiFi, short for wireless fidelity to their city core. While some networks have gone off without a hitch, many others have had more than their share of technical glitches including flooding of users on the network, slow connection speeds and crashes. Those experiencing the networks have complained about trouble connecting, advertising popping up on their screens and in cities that charge, having to signup for for a service that sometimes make it inconvenient to simply logon.
But Pleasanton is being vigilant and cautious to make sure those same mistakes donât happen here. Over the next few weeks crews of all sorts of people with NetworkAnatomy will be completing a detailed radio frequency or RF study, travel to secure the main antenna sites and placement options, visit every single location planned for equipment and diverse power and test each segment , its equipment and traffic loads before they say its ready to the City. âThese are the type of details and early warnings of any issue that can make or break a MUNI networkâ, chief architect and CEO of NetworkAnatomy stated. These types of networks are relatively new in the US and few experts really exist, Linman continuedâ¦as engineers we study everything, including the failures and successes of others, similar to the medical community, in order to deploy successful networks, our specific architecture is a blended hybrid of WiFi and WiMax levels in order to achieve greater security and control levels, bandwidth on demand distribution and fewer access points required, Linman concluded.â
This historic change to Pleasanton, will forever change the business and economic structure to include the city operations, the unified school district, city workers, responders, businesses, parents and children and the elderly.
