LONDON -- Telabria, the award winning UK wireless network provider, today announces the latest addition to its CampusMesh family of indoor and outdoor wireless mesh access points and routers. The new ruggedized, weatherproof mNode300 provides outdoor Wi-Fi coverage where other access points cannot reach, thanks to its ability to use a second radio to backhaul network traffic, which removes the need for Ethernet cabling. The new device will form part of an ongoing project to provide students with wireless access to educational resources in Kent libraries, schools, and other public sector locations.

Telabria is currently exhibiting the new product at BETT 2005 12th - 15th January, Olympia, London, Stand No. M75 .

Telabria CampusMesh is a highly effective wireless mesh network solution that delivers tri-band (802.11 a/b/g) Wi-Fi access throughout premises without recourse to traditional cable-based fixed networks. It has been deployed in schools and libraries in Kent to provide ubiquitous Wi-Fi coverage where cabling is difficult, unsightly, or cost-prohibitive. CampusMesh was chosen by Kent County Council for its flexibility to be custom-tailored to their specific requirements, while fitting within existing network infrastructures.

At any CampusMesh-equipped location, Kent students can access school network resources, the Internet, reference material and school projects from tablet PCs equipped with Intel® Centrino™ mobile technology which has integrated wireless LAN capability. Telabria has deployed CampusMesh across multiple sites including Sandwich Public Library near Dover, and Allington Public Library and Aylesford Secondary School, both near Maidstone.

Ben Chapman, Public Sector Marketing Manager, Intel Europe Middle East and Africa, commented: "Intel brings experience working with schools and governments around the world to deploy eLearning solutions that support student-centred learning. Telabria's network fully supports the Intel® Centrino™ mobile technology and is an important step supporting Intel's vision of anytime, anywhere learning that will help life-long learners realise their full potential."
