OpenRoute starts selling rugged Wi-Fi systems

Two years after it began developing mesh Wi-Fi networks for construction sites, Seattle-based OpenRoute has made its first sale.

Mercer Island-based Bayley Construction is the first commercial customer of OpenRoute’s “OnSite Wi-Fi” system.

The system is a set of briefcase-sized yellow plastic boxes containing an access point and antenna. The boxes are placed around a job site or building under construction and managed via an Android app. When one of them connects to a mobile phone, satellite phone or wired Internet connection, they form a mesh network sharing the connection across the site. Each box costs $3,800.

OpenRoute is a new venture of CoCo Communications, a low-profile Seattle company that produces wireless systems for the military. With OpenRoute it’s trying to extend its technology to the construction industry.
