Virtual fiber for 'last mile'

GigaBeam Corp., Chantilly, Va., has developed a point-to-point wireless technology that uses very high radio frequency to deliver the speed of fiber networks directly to agencies and enterprises.

Although much on the nation's communications infrastructure has moved to high-speed fiber-optic networks, those connections don't yet extend to most buildings, the so-call "last mile."

GigaBeam's technology uses radio frequency spectrums at 71 to 76 GHz and 81 to 86 GHz to transmit data at multigigabit-per-second speeds, the company said. One gigabit per second is the equivalent of 647 T1 lines, or about 1,000 DSL connections.
