City Wireless expert Bobby Vassallo.
Bobby worked with a city which paid a major consulting firm more money than the entire wireless mesh project would have cost, just to tell that City which technology to pick!
AND, THEY PICKED THE WRONG ONE! Millions spent on a City wireless network, still not working.
"These city wireless projects cost money, but nothing like we see cities pay. Many cities are actually backing off implementation of these WiFi - WiMax wireless mesh projects because of high costs they are being quoted. Cities are simply getting bad advice, and, in most cases, from consultants who have never completed a wireless mesh project. Wireless consulting comes from wireless experience, not from equipment vendor's promises", says Bobby Vassallo.
Cities have purchased wireless equipment from equipment vendors with no ability to operate that equipment, thinking they would simply train city employees. Wrong! Bobby Vassallo says, "A race car is no good without a professional driver. Wireless networks, similarly, need experienced, trained personnel. Vassallo says, Without them, the city wireless network won't make it around the track!"
Currently, a South Texas city is beginning a project, having picked equipment which will not even run the contemplated solution they desire. Why? They have been sold a bill of goods by a vendor, too ignorant of the technology to realize the city will lose millions in taxpayer moneys for a system destined to fail.
Let City Wireless Consulting help you save money by designing the equipment you need, instead of what vendors want to sell you. Often we are brought in to clean up the mess, after the fact.
From La Jolla, CA, Bobby Vassallo and City Wireless experts have consulted and built working Wireless mesh projects in North, Central, South American and African cities, including wireless security cameras, public WiFi HotSpots, WiMax, mobile broadband for police, fire and ambulance, as well as EMR and First responder networks. Vassallo says, "No, we aren't speaking of Verizon Wireless, AT&T Wireless, or Sprint, but full broadband WiFi and WiMax hybrid networks which are paving the way to new-age Wireless service deliveries in modern cities."
