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.

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.
