The network specialist launched the Orinoco product family of broadband wireless Internet access and networking systems at the show.
Lucent says that the Orinoco family has been designed for secure, high-speed Internet access in public places like universities, office complexes and airports.
"Imagine being able to fully access your e-mail and corporate files while patiently waiting for your aircraft to roll up to the gate," says Harry Stevens, wireless networking product manager at Lucent Technologies.
The technology is based upon the IEEE 802.11b wireless standard and, according to Lucent, is capable of transmitting and receiving data at 11mbps.
"This is not a slow trickle of data, but full wideband Ethernet-level data networking delivered without wires.
Stevens says the Orinoco products will free users from struggling to connect cables.
