NEC achieves 330kph Wi-Fi link-up
by IGotThePower 08:37AM Monday Oct 20 2003
Researchers at NEC have taken Wi-Fi wireless connectivity to new levels. They have successfully demonstrated handovers between access points while travelling past them at bullet-train speed.

In a test earlier this month at a automobile test track north of Tokyo the company says it successfully demonstrated in-house developed software that allows for a fast sign-on and hand-over between standard access points.

The test involved four IEEE802.11b access points. They were placed at 500-metre intervals along a portion of the Japan Automobile Research Institute's test track in Ibaraki prefecture, said Yasuhito Jochi, a spokesman for NEC in Tokyo. The access points were connected to a router in which NEC's high-speed handover software was installed.
