The hotspot was built in the Arctic Region at the Barneo ice camp, a tent complex used by scientists, researchers and rescue crews during the month of April, when ice conditions are safe.
Despite the challenges, the employees installed a 802.11b/g access point at the camp's headquarters and then established a wireless LAN (WLA ) using four laptops with Intel's Centrino mobile technology, the company said. Another computer was placed outdoors and connected to a satellite phone to provide the network with Internet. The hotspot could be accessed by anyone at the camp who had a mobile or pocket PC, Intel said.
