With gear currently being used in New Orleans, Philadelphia and San Francisco municipal WiFi projects, Tropos Networks must be doing something right. Their new Tropos 5320 outdoor MetroMesh router, however, is their first to offer dual-band WiFi. Along with the added bandwidth this provides, Tropos has updated their MetroMesh operating system to allow operators to switch between 5GHz and 2.4GHz bands depending on interference and the continuing proliferation of such devices. Next up for Tropos is multi-radio routers, which they hope to combine wireless technologies like MIMO, WiMAX, 4.9GHz and 3G/4G cellular to create one router to rule them all.
