USURF America will engineer and deploy a high-speed wireless Internet network that will provide continuous coverage over the 103 square miles that encompass Rancho, N.M., a city of 60,000 residents located 16 miles north of Albuquerque. USURF will operate under a 10-year license and will rely on its propriety wireless mesh technology—dubbed UsurfMesh—that provides redundant backhaul, optimized data packet routing, and meets all of the city’s criteria, including that the system by scalable and upgradeable, the company said. UsurfMesh complies with Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g standards, but can be extended to any radio frequency technology, including Wi-Max 802.16, according to the company.
