Many cities around the world, such as Philadelphia, are building wireless Internet access citywide. There is no doubt that such efforts bring values and convenience to visitors, citizens, businesses and all other communities of a city. However, without a suitable CPE, a service provider will have lots of problems in service deployment, user support and scalability.
As the walls and roofs of buildings greatly diminish the strength of Citywide Wi-Fi signals, Citywide Wi-Fi at present typically covers only outdoor areas. The Wi-Fi signals from typical consumer wireless equipment are designed to connect with Access Points in close proximity. As a result, they do not possess sufficient transmission power to penetrate buildings and communicate with outdoor Citywide Wi-Fi Access Basestations.
Typical consumer wireless equipment lacks sufficient power.
