Richard Lander, marketing chief at LocustWorld, is in Wales, promoting the mesh concept as guests of the Welsh Development Agency's @Wales initiative, setting up a mesh network that beamed out from the Jury's Inn Hotel in Cardiff.

Evan Jones, Director of the @Wales Digital Media Initiative said, "We are delighted to bring together our Welsh digital media colleagues with their counterparts in London and the rest of the UK." Evan added,

The @Wales digital media initiative is the WDA project that focuses specifically on digital business enterprise development. LocustWorld were invited by @Wales to present their wireless mesh system to an audience of around 100 delegates from all over Wales.

"The Wireless Mesh has great potential for stimulating economic activity through innovative use of new technology" said Richard Lander from LocustWorld.

He added:"We were very pleased to be invited to speak at this Welsh Development Agency event. Bringing broadband networking to remote areas is just one of the applications for the LocustWorld mesh. Urban wireless networks, bluetooth integration, corporate intranet and specialised communications projects are all areas where the wireless mesh can be used to provide connectivity. With certificated encryption, bandwidth management, access controls, accounting and remote management, the LocustWorld mesh is an ideal solution for wide ranging wireless communications."
