Strix Wireless Gets Olympics Win

Calabasas-based wireless mesh networking hardware provider Strix Systems has signed a deal to provide its hardware for a use in the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, the firm said earlier this week. Financial impact of the win was not announced, but Strix said that its outdoor wireless networking system has been integrated into emergency response vehicles and other personal mobile communications for public safety. Strix said the win was a part of a design by Silicon-Star Science & Technology Development Co. Ltd and Beijing Aerospace Changfeng Co., Ltd, which will be used in the Olympic Stadium and downtown Beijing during the Olympic Games.
