HERNDON, Va., 18 May 2007.GigaBeam Corporation, provider of ultra-high-speed point-to-point wireless solutions such as WiFiber wireless fiber, has received follow-on orders totaling approximately $350,000 from a reseller for the Department of Defense.
GigaBeam WiFiber products operate in the 71 to 76GHz and 81 to 86GHz upper millimeter wave spectrum bands.
GigaBeam's technology, utilizing these large blocks of contiguous spectrum, enables multi-Gigabit-per-second communications through use of Gigabit Ethernet and other standard protocols. The current speed achieved by GigaBeam's WiFiber G-1.25 product series is full duplex at one Gigabit-per-second (equivalent to 647 T1 lines or 1,000 DSL connections) which supports GigE protocol.
WiFiber has a substantial advantage over terrestrial fiber because WiFiber can be rapidly deployed and costs less to deploy than terrestrial fiber. Terrestrial fiber can take months to deploy and also require significant regulatory and environmental approvals prior to installation.
