Cisco powers Albany’s free muni Wi-Fi

ALBANY, N.Y.-Free Wi-Fi powered by Cisco Systems Inc. is on the loose in Albany, N.Y., as the state capital begins deploying a Wi-Fi network aimed at boosting the city’s public safety capabilities as well as its economic development.

Albany’s Mayor Jerry Jennings called the deployment “an important first step in providing Internet access to everyone in our community, throughout all of the neighborhoods.”

Local service provider Tech Valley Communications is managing the mesh network comprised of Cisco’s Airnet 1500 series mesh product, which the company says has built-in intelligence for automatically configuring itself to operate according to the needs of the network.
