US telecom operator, Agile Networks announced a new pilot deployment of RADWIN’s Terragraph technology to offer Fixed Wireless Access broadband service across the U.S. starting with Canton.
Terragraph by RADWIN, an advanced 60GHz mesh solution, delivers multi-gig wireless access services to homes and businesses in urban and suburban environments, expanding service providers’ network coverage beyond the fiber footprint. The system will enable rapid and cost-effective access to high-speed connectivity, bringing customers speeds up to 10-100 times faster than their existing connections. Terragraph enables multi-gigabit connectivity at fraction of the cost of buried fiber as it’s suitable for street level deployments on poles or buildings. The unique mesh architecture overcomes the mmWave challenges such as line-of-sight and range and enables network efficient and cost-effective expansion of broadband services.
Terragraph by RADWIN was developed in collaboration with Facebook, RADWIN and Intel. The project will serve as a global pilot to showcase how Terragraph can improve the telecommunications infrastructure of midsize cities ushering in more innovation, economic development, and growth.
