SkyPilot offers municipalities an economically compelling alternative for providing broadband access to mobile municipal workers, residents and small businesses. Municipal police, fire and EMS departments have been among the first to adopt metro-scale Wi-Fi mesh networks. High-speed, in-field data access dramatically improves public safety officer effectiveness and efficiency by getting critical information in their hands on the street. Once the networks are installed, many municipalities find new uses, ranging from building inspections to automatic utility meter-reading. With substantially lower capital expenditure per home passed and monthly operating expense per subscriber, metro-scale Wi-Fi mesh networks also allow municipalities to extend network services to residents and small businesses.
In today's crowded broadband communications marketplace, no system can match SkyPilot's platform's combination of advanced technology, simplified configuration, rapid deployment and remarkable cost effectiveness. The solution enables ISPs to differentiate themselves, create competitive advantage and attract and please increasingly demanding residential and business customers, even in hard-to-reach areas.
