A number of municipalities have studied opportunitiesto build large wireless networks at fairly low cost. In particular, the use of Wi-Fi is promising becauseof the low cost of hardware, license exempt spectrum, and the wide availability of customer equipment. On the other hand power limitations, interferences,and operations reliability are a concern for these networks.This document focuses on the Municipal WirelessRF Ekistics. It reviews fundamental aspects of wireless communications from experiments and technical documents and applies the business due diligence basics. The document considers general wireless communications principles and presents aspects that must be considered for wireless systemssuch as Wi-Fi for coverage on the order of a municipal scale or a fairly large residential area.
