GigaBeam WiFiber is a true fiber substitute for the entire last mile. The links are designed for the highest performance, availability, and the lowest total cost of ownership. These links have a very low probability of interception due to the narrow transmission beam width at less than one degree. The GigaBeam technology uses the new FCC approved 71-76GHz, 81-86GHz, and 92-95GHz frequency bands to provide reliable point-to-point two-way communications at up to 2.48Gbps with 99.999% weather available for about a mile or more throughout most of the US.
|GigaBeam and their WiFiber products are designed for fiber replacement. They operate at full duplex speeds from 1 to 2.7 Gigabits per second (Gbps) in the licensed 70 GHz to 90 GHz range. 99.999% availability is achievable at 1 mile. 99.9% availability ranges from 1.5 to 4.0 miles in the U.S.
||Unlicensed high bandwidth links are susceptible to interference. FCC registration in this frequency band is done on-line by the system integrator and approval is immediate with a 10-year license to protect your wireless backhaul link. The license will cost approximately $500.
|Similar in throughput to lasers and 60 GHz radios the 70-90 GHz radios distinguish themselves first off by being licensed. Given the same distance and same throughput as FSO and 60 GHz the 70-90 GHz wireless networks will be less effected by loss due to atmosphere and fog.
||Experienced installation teams should be used for successful wireless networks. With a horizontal beam width of only 1 degree installations that twist are susceptible to errors. The antennas are 24" in diameter and interestingly can be mounted inside windows. GigaBeam WiFiber links are very secure. To breach security the beam must be intercepted from different channels going in different directions.
