London's Soho to get blanket 802.11 cover for voice, data

Excerpts:

"London's City of Westminster Council is to bring 802.11b wireless networking to the streets of Soho. The scheme, dubbed the Westminster 4G project, will initially provide Wi-Fi connectivity for council operatives and remote systems."

"The Westminster plan will allow parking meter attendants, cleaners, noise inspectors and other council workers to access council systems via 802.11-equipped handheld terminals in real-time, in the field."

"The council's twin goals are improved efficiency through fast access to information and through reduced bureaucracy, and a significant reduction in its costs."

"Other applications the Council is considering include the roll-out of greater CCTV monitoring - at a fraction of the cost of current systems which have seen the Council spend around £2 million installing just 30 cameras in the West End - and providing vulnerable members of the community with emergency call-out facilities."

The Council plans to later open up Wi-Fi access to the public.
