ERF Wireless Partners with Louisiana State Police (11/16)
Thursday, November 16, 2006 | Comments
ERF Wireless entered into an agreement with the Louisiana State Police to construct a statewide wireless broadband network. This network, to be known as Louisiana BankNet, will be owned and operated by ERF Wireless, with the tower infrastructure provided by the Louisiana State Police. Funding will be provided by participating financial institutions. The $5 million network will provide wireless broadband connectivity to the Louisiana State Police and to the regional banks that ERF Wireless currently serves and will serve in the future. The network will also support wireless broadband Internet services (WISP) to many underserved areas of Louisiana. As part of the agreement, the company will provide the Louisiana State Police with access to continuous, point-to-point wireless connectivity through the entire State Police tower network. ERF Wireless will also deploy its newly announced SatNet product to provide fault-tolerant communications at certain key nodes inside the network. In addition, during times of declared state emergencies, the company will make available to Louisiana's first responders expanded bandwidth, VoIP communications, high-resolution video surveillance at the backbone towers and across regional banking networks, video conferencing, and free use of wireless hot spots across the network to support disaster recovery efforts.
