GoNaeco used Strix Systems’ award winning OWS (Outdoor Wireless System) to unwire the Calgary Community.
Access/One® Outdoor Wireless System OWS2400 is the industry’s highest throughput, lowest latency modular multi-radio mesh networking system. Utilizing Strix DMA™, (Dynamic Mesh Algorithms) the Access/One OWS delivers multi-radio Layer 2 switching, multi-RF (4.9/5/2.4 GHz) and multi-channel capabilities using advanced algorithms to deliver high throughput over multiple hops from the core to the edge of the network. The OWS intelligently self-tunes, self-configures and self-heals to optimize the overall performance and availability.
