Rapidly Deliver Gbps to the Home

By Ray Savich

Do Gigabit speeds to residences require fiber? Not anymore.

Avoid the time and cost of trenching and getting right of way and satisfy the end customer using Fixed Wireless. Deliver Gigabit download and high-speed symmetrical services that satisfy the need for work from home videoconferencing and streaming gaming and entertainment – and get to those customers first.

Multi-Gigabit Speed Delivered Over 60 GHz Fixed Wireless

Multi-Gigabit Wireless Technology in a Mesh Architecture

Fixed Wireless in the 60 GHz frequency band provides a highly reliable and efficient platform that can be deployed at a fraction of the time and cost of trenching fiber. Leveraging the 802.11ay standard, efficient meshing technology, distributed network infrastructure, beam steering, software defined radios and centralized cloud management, 60 GHz cnWave™ delivers performance that was previously only associated with fiber.

Another distinct advantage of the fixed wireless distributed architecture is the resilience, automatic failure detection and repair. Should a link go down the system will automatically reroute traffic through the next best path to provide continuity to the subscriber. This is achieved through the use of Distribution Node (DN’s) and Multiple Point of Presences (PoPs).

60 GHz cnWave is easy to add to existing networks based on layer 2 and IPv4 protocols while behind the scenes it takes advantage of the latest layer 3 routing and IPv6 for scalability and resiliency today.

Planning Tools Make It Easy

Not familiar with fixed wireless? Software planning tools optimize design and hence reduce system cost while maximizing revenue.  Tools based on LiDAR data provide the precision to accurately budget equipment needed to satisfy any Fixed Wireless deployment and then to accurately position DNs for robust resilience of the DN backbone and the ability to provide service to all customer buildings. cnHeat™ generates predictions to one-meter precision.
