The administrators of Radiant Networks Plc, the small UK mesh wireless networking pioneer which went bust last December, have sold the business. The new owner is LamTech Limited, a Cambridgeshire-based technology business and the R&D arm of Project SkyMinder Ltd. Financial details were not released.

It's understood that LamTech is preparing to launch a mesh radio service in the UK this year aimed at the small business (SME) market. LamTech also has its eye on providing a service in areas currently not covered by DSL or cable services.

Amanda Lambert, CEO and owner of Project SkyMinder, said: "I'm thrilled to have acquired Radiant Networks Plc, which is an invaluable addition to a global programme we are conducting. We recognised a long time ago that Mesh was a terrestrial broadband solution with capabilities that further complimented our communication and RFiD solutions.

"The pilot trials and currently operating Mesh systems are all highly successful programmes; as such we are undergoing an aggressive global deployment of the worlds leading fixed wireless broadband technology in conjunction with the rollout of our own products."

In 2002 Radiant Networks teamed up with BT to trial its broadband mesh radio technology in Pontypridd, South Wales. Mesh radio solutions work by using small radio antenna installed at each household or business to form a "mesh" which is used to transmit signals across the network. ®
