HPWNet – High performance wireless network

HPWNet is an experimental wireless network developed by CSP since 2005. The project started with two aims: to develop a wireless backbone in the urban area of Turin, which can be used for the rapid activation of wireless nodes in the city and as a point of departure for extensions towards neighboring municipalities.

Today, HPWNet is based on 10 sites in the urban area of Turin and involves other 16 towers spread throughout the Piemonte Region. Link length ranges between 500m and 80km: HPWNet allows us to deeply analyze the behavior of wireless devices , in a real scenario with other active networks and several interferences.
