October 28, 2013 – Global Software and Solutions (GSS) of the Infinite Group is happy to announce its participation in the development of the free Wi-Fi network in the city of Nijmegen, The Netherlands.
Nijmegen is located in the eastern part of the Netherlands near the German border. It is a medium-sized city considered to be the oldest in the country. Little boutiques and restaurants with terraces on narrow cobblestone paved streets bring much charm to the historical Roman city. Its antique character does not imply that Nijmegen lives in the past. On the contrary, the city is a trail-blazer, as shown by its commitment to soon offer free Wi-Fi connection to anyone strolling along its inviting lively streets.
GSS was very excited to be chosen as the provider of all equipment for the first stage of the project. They delivered Cisco wireless controllers and access points suitable for outdoors conditions to equip the long well-known “Marikenstraat”. They were also in charge of all calculation necessary to ensure perfect coverage of the street. The installation of all equipment was performed by Yaworks.
On October 11 the Wi-Fi network was accessible for all to use on Marikenstraat. The next phase includes three additional streets and will be completed by the end of the year. GSS is excited about its involvement in this innovative project and looking forward to the day when the whole center of its hometown will offer free Wi-Fi to all.
