Meraki Solar made headlines recently when it released the first self-powered 802.11n Wi-Fi hub. The units aren't cheap—a 40-watt MR58 router sells for $1,497—but San Francisco solar buffs will have the chance to test them out at next week's Green:Net 09, a green conference targeted at the IT industry.
Meraki, a San Francisco start-up backed by Google and Sequoia Capital, released its triple-radio 802.11n outdoor Wi-Fi node just last month. Comparable products from other vendors cost nearly double, and lack support of the wireless-N standard.
