Yamanashi Prefecture uses Cisco wireless LAN solutions for its free public wireless LAN environment to provide communication for residents in the event of a disaster, and free Wi-Fi hotspots for tourists.
"In the event of disasters, ensuring a means of communication for prefectural residents and tourists was an issue. Following the completion of the construction of the base for this development project, we anticipate that this free Wi-Fi will also be used during ordinary times for tourism and for educational purposes at educational facilities."Yukiko Irikura, Deputy Director of the Yamanashi Prefecture General Affairs Department, Information Policy Division
