Strix Talks WiMax Mesh Future

October 3, 2005

Strix Systems of Calabasas, Calif., is one of the many companies making a name for itself in wireless mesh infrastructure equipment. It's a market that In-Stat says is going from $33.5 million last year to $974.3 million by 2009. In fact, the research firm calls it a "potentially disruptive technology" — they mean that in a good way. But can it get there using Wi-Fi alone? Maybe not. This is probably why Strix is already making noise about its future support for the high-speed, long-distance connections that will come with 802.16, also known as WiMax.
