Today, the average broadband connection speed in the UK is 94 Mbps. This figure is simply unacceptable given the rise in broadband hungry applications from video conferencing to telemedicine.  Today and tomorrow’s connections need to support Gigabit speeds.  In order to efficiently deploy a reliable wireless Gigabit network, there are 3 main challenges for any wireless technology that will need to be resolved:

1. Power For the Units

2. Price of not just the hardware, but the total cost of ownership including installation.

3. Poles offer ideal mounting sites for Gigabit radios and are fairly ubiquitous.

Click below to hear how Siklu and Facebook’s Terragraph team address these concerns, discuss installation scenarios and the future of self-install.
