The city of Bee Cave, TX, has connected the city’s municipal buildings with Proxim Wireless’ point-to-point wireless backhaul technology. Using the company’s GigaLink radios, the city increased the overall system bandwidth from 3 Mbps to 1.25 Gbps and saved more $7,800 per year in leased line costs.
The city designed and implemented a VoIP system for all municipal buildings and has integrated an open source VoIP solution with Microsoft Exchange 2007 and Unified Messaging in the Austin Metropolitan area. The system’s services were extended to field personnel via hand-held mobile devices. The city is considering the future expansion of the network to offer outdoor Wi-Fi connectivity to both the city’s 50-acre park as well as "The Backyard," the city’s outdoor music venue.
