Digital Payment Joins the Tropos MetroMesh Solution Partner Program

Digital Payment Technologies Corp., a leading supplier of advanced parking meters and revenue-management solutions for the global parking industry, announced that it has joined the Tropos Networks MetroMesh Partner Program. They offer customers broadband wireless solutions for on-street parking operations.
Digital Payments LUKE on-street and Shelby off-street parking pay stations are certified to connect directly to the Tropos MetroMesh architecture, providing cost effective real time parking solutions that include real time credit card processing, monitoring and alarming, pay by cell phone integration, real time reporting, and remote rate and pay station configuration capabilities. Wirelessly enabled parking systems minimize lost revenue from non-payment and broken meters which can be of significant value in the multi-billion dollar parking industry.

The first deployment of the Digital Payment and Tropos integration is currently taking place in Houston, TX where 750 LUKE parking pay stations are being deployed and networked together using a WiFi system utilizing Tropos equipment. This project represents the first municipal parking-meter system in the U.S. that does not rely on a cellular network, but instead communicates exclusively using a dedicated 802.11g WiFi network. The City of Houston is evaluating the performance of this WiFi system to determine if it can be expanded to assist public safety and public service employees to improve the accuracy and timeliness of their duties.

The rapid market acceptance of the LUKE on-street pay station by municipalities across North America and the emergence of metro mesh networks as a viable technology make our partnership with Tropos a natural fit. Our certification in working with Tropos equipment now provides Digital Payment clients with a new connectivity option that can deliver increased operational capabilities and reduced long term communications costs, said Chris Chettle, Vice President of Marketing for Digital Payment.

Tropos MetroMesh Solution Partners help to accelerate the integration of complementary, best-of-breed technologies with the Tropos MetroMesh architecture, said Chris Rittler, VP of Business Development for Tropos Networks. Digital Payments parking system combined with Tropos MetroMesh architecture provides a unique ability to deliver the vast benefits of low-cost, ubiquitous wireless broadband solutions to our common customers worldwide.

The MetroMesh Solution Partner Program is an initiative led by Tropos Networks the leader in delivering metro-scale, Wi-Fi mesh network systems to bring together leading vendors from a variety of product categories to speed delivery of complete, end-to-end solutions for Tropos metro-scale Wi-Fi mesh networks.
