battery backup or solar panels. Solar panels only function during
daylight, so that means solar
also have to have batteries (if the power is out, the streetlights won't be on
to power the solar cells).
Transmitters take considerable power (you don't see many battery operated
would love to see phila wireless...but I highly doubt 10 million is going to do

don't know. That RFP sounded like someone was dreaming.

EMS radio system :)
am pretty sure all the antenna’s and repeaters will be on light post correct?
I don’t see those consuming too much engery, I think you would see something
along the lines of the solar panels along side the turnpike. Except these
would be on top of the light post of course and hopefully out of range of most
criminals. I assume since the city owns this network they will allow their
city employees to use it for free. I foresee a lot of possible applications
for wireless handheld devices in the city. Can anyone find any future plans
for any such devices/plans?
