DLS-IT, a service provider based in Parlier, California, is using third generation mesh technology to provide service in three central California communities.The network, operating in Parlier, Sanger and San Joaquin, uses third generation mesh technology from Mesh Dynamics which announced its partnership with DLS-IT today.
The Mesh Dynamics announcement quotes De los Santos saying his company began working with the communities because “the digital divide applies to communities like ours, too, not only the inner city.” The three cities have a combined population of more than 35,000.
DLS-IT is working in partnership with local communities to locate the equipment and operate the networks. MeshDynamics wireless mesh nodes are installed on city buildings and other property, including community leaders’ homes and municipal water towers. In addition to providing public high-speed access to the Internet, the system supports wireless surveillance cameras to discourage theft and graffiti in two locations.
