Tellus Venture Associates Completes WiMAX Feasibility Study for City of Folsom, California

| From

Pilot Project Approved for Implementation

SEASIDE, CA (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Tellus Venture Associates, in collaboration with Coast2Coast Technologies, completed a study for the City of Folsom, California that determined that a citywide WiMAX system is financially and technically feasible, and would help drive economic development. The conceptual system design and business case evaluation envisioned a low cost WiMAX system with a multi-layered business model that would enable public WiFi access, next generation municipal and corporate networking solutions, entrepreneurial ventures, and innovative applications for new communities of users, such as health care providers.

"A WiMAX system can potentially provide a significant competitive advantage to businesses in Folsom, and offer residents more convenience and flexibility in their lives," said Joseph Luchi, Economic Development Coordinator for the City of Folsom. "We're excited that local companies are already involved in the pilot project approved by the city council, and we're looking forward to beginning the test."

As a next step, the study recommended establishing a pilot project that would bring together interested organizations to deploy a pre-WiMAX network as a proof of concept for the system itself, as well as for various new technologies. The Folsom City Council reviewed the study and approved the recommendations on 8 November 2005.
