GigaBeam Gains From US City Wireless Build-out

A western US company has purchased 11 of GigaBeam’s WiFiber links with compound semiconductor chips, according to the Virginia-based broadband wireless access equipment vendor. According to GigaBeam chairman and CEO Lou Slaughter, the company’s client “is taking advantage of WiFiber, instead of terrestrial fiber, to build out a metropolitan network at a fraction of the cost of an equivalent terrestrial fiber network.” WiFiber products work in 71-76 GHz and 81-86 GHz spectral bands, which the Federal Communications Commission are allowing for wireless point-to-point commercial use. GigaBeam is currently offering 1Gbit/s WiFiber and looks to unveil 2.7 GBit/s version later this year. In the works is a 10Gbit/s model.
