BelAir Networks supplies wireless gear to cities in Arizona, Iowa, and Nebraska

March 23 -- "Three U.S. municipalities are turning to BelAir Networks to deliver essential communication services to their respective city personnel via Wi-Fi technology. BelAir has inked deals with the cities of Des Moines, Iowa; Show Low, Arizona; and Lincoln, Nebraska to deploy its BelAir200 cellular LAN platform. In Iowa, the Department of Transportation will use the technology to link the West Des Moines Traffic and Iowa Departments of Transportation. The platform also will be called on to provide traffic monitoring at busy city intersections."

"In Arizona, the BelAir200 will be used to enable police and fire departments to maintain communications between mobile units and databases at city hall. In Nebraska, the network will be used to interconnect scattered city offices by providing connectivity. The technology also will be used as a redundant link for existing wired networks."
