A wireless system that uses steel in buildings

COCOMO Mb Communications and Oki Communication Systems have jointly developed a wireless system that sends out electromagnetic waves through steel and piping in a building.

The system turns buildings into wireless networks: the device is attached to the piping, and sends signals through it. The system could also be used for transport, sending signals to passenger seats in airplanes or trains using the vehicle chassis, for example.

Cocomo is to market the new system in September.
