Riverside, CA, May 2008 - BelAir Networks today announced that their industry-leading mobile broadband mesh technology is being deployed to provide high-speed wireless access at the Riverside Convention Center in Riverside, California, the largest city in one of the U.S.’s fastest growing metropolitan areas. The deployment supports the city’s SmartRiverside initiative, which is focused on driving economic development and digital inclusion programs and fostering technology innovation in this fast growing high tech community.

“Wi-Fi is a key amenity for both meeting planners and event attendees so we’re pleased that the Riverside Convention Center will feature the same industry-leading BelAir Networks technology deployed in world class venues such as Lincoln Center in New York City and Dolphin Stadium in Miami,” said Steve Reneker, Chief Information Officer, City of Riverside. “BelAir Networks products reflect and support the technology innovation that is synonymous with SmartRiverside.”
