60GHz Finds a Home

millimeter wavelength spectrum

Communications networks are constantly evolving, improving performance as new technologies arise all to deliver more bits/second. Wireless communications networks are no different, and if not more difficult, as the medium, air, is much harder to operate in than a cable or piece of fiber. This challenge persists across the field. The drive for more bits…

Upgrading and Future Proofing Your MDU Building

Retrofitting Digital Connectivity

The Problem: Delivering Today’s Digital World to Yesterday’s Apartments Over 20 million households in the US live in “MDU” (Multi-Dwelling Unit) buildings. As of 2021, property owners offered Internet to only 16 percent of these units. Buildings constructed before the year 2000 likely use outdated in-building wiring, relying on twisted pair and running g.x technology…

The All-Wireless Enterprise: Blast Through Walls @ 60 GHz

blast through walls with 60GHz

The unlicensed V-band is gaining significant attention for its potential to blast through walls. Initially targeted for residential broadband, interest has shifted towards in-building wireless backbones. This shift is driven by the V-band’s strengths: a vast amount of available spectrum (14 GHz in the U.S.) and the ability to achieve high spectral reuse with beamforming…

Selecting the Best Frequency Bands for Backhaul

Best Frequency Bands for Backhaul

In this blog, we will explore the RF bands commonly used today to identify the best frequency bands for backhaul and understand which services work best at which frequencies. We will examine access technologies that connect users to Wi-Fi APs (or cellular networks) and backbone technologies that link these APs back to the wiring closet…
