CALABASAS, Calif. -- Strix Systems, the leader in high-performance wireless mesh networking, today announced that KT Corp., the largest high-speed internet operator in Korea, is deploying Strix's Access/One(R) Network Outdoor Wireless Systems (OWS). The Strix wireless mesh network enables seamless mobile access to KT's NESPOT Wi-Fi internet service; NESPOT integrates fixed-line and wireless services, offering wireless internet access to laptops, PDAs, and homes. In this first wave of deployments, Strix distributor Broadwave, Inc., of Korea installed the Strix network in cooperation with its sales partner, Hyundai HDS, at the award-winning Westin Chosun Hotel Busan beachfront hotel in Busan, Korea.

The Westin Chosun Hotel Busan, located in the tourist area of Haeundae Beach, is a venue for national and international events and functions that attracts visitors from Korea and abroad. The hotel hosted the 2005 APEC Economic Leader's Meeting and was selected as the home base for President George W. Bush and his contingent during the conference.

"The Strix OWS will help users enjoy seamless wireless internet access whether they are indoors or outdoors," said Kim Leesu, NESPOT Business Team Manager at KT Corp. "Starting from the beach hotel, we'll deploy Strix wireless mesh networks in other hotels as well as in the nearby airport."
