Today, the municipal wireless landscape is much different from what it was just a few years ago. The early hype and excitement has been replaced with a much more realistic outlook on what wireless networks can and cannot do for municipalities. There are fewer projects under development, but those that are being planned are now generally based on solid business cases. Project leaders are often willing to share their successes and failures, and it is understood that building municipal networks is not a simple task.
