Ericsson selected by IBN to build Europe's largest public Wi-Fi Network
Posted on 7-Mar-2003 08:21. | Tags Filed under: News.



Inspired Broadcast Networks, a subsidiary of LLG, the largest operator of coin operated entertainment terminals in the UK, has today its digital entertainment platform installed in more than 3,000 locations.

Ericsson will equip the entertainment terminals with public Wi-Fi Hot Spot capabilities using Digital Subscriber Lines (DSL) for backhaul of traffic. The use of DSL enables rapid massive coverage with only minor infrastructure investments.

"The opportunity that this network offers the world, matches Ericsson's corporate strategy within Mobile & Broadband Internet communications. We are proud to lead the way in this area and look forward to continued activities with IBN, BT and Intel," says Ove Anebygd, Vice President Broadband Access, Ericsson.

Together with Ericsson, BT and Intel, IBN will create a network named "The Cloud" planned to expand to 30,000 Hot Spots over the next three years. IBN will sell wholesale capacity to branded service providers like mobile and broadband operators as well as pay-as-you-go services at the Hot Spots.
