Executive Summary

When Hurricane Katrina knocked out the wired communications network in the city of New Orleans, local consultancy Logistix quickly took on the task of reestablishing communications in a core area of the city as quickly as possible. Logistix, which built and managed a 130-camera WiFi-based wireless surveillance network for the City of New Orleans prior to the hurricane, was able to leverage this existing WiFi network to get a robust communications network up and running in just a few weeks. And this network, built using Motorola's wireless broadband network equipment, is today used for much more than just surveillance.
