ERF Wireless announced that the company has signed an agreement with the Louisiana State Police to construct a statewide wireless broadband network.
ERF Wireless is operating the statewide broadband network named, Louisiana BankNet and Louisiana State Police is providing the infrastructure. The $5 million network will provide wireless broadband connectivity to the Louisiana State Police and to the regional banks, which is currently served by ERF Wireless. The network will also support wireless broadband Internet services (WISP) to many underserved areas of Louisiana. According to the agreement, the company will provide point to-point wireless connectivity to the Louisiana State Police through the entire State Police tower network. ERF Wireless will also install its newly announced product 'SatNet' to provide fault-tolerant communications at certain key nodes inside the network. The company will expand bandwidth, VoIP communications, high-resolution video surveillance at the backbone towers and across regional banking networks, video conferencing, and free use of wireless hotspots across the network.
