EdgeLink millimeter wave mesh backhaul and fronthaul technology is both an immediate solution for wireless gigabit connectivity for applications, such as residential broadband access and Carrier Wi-Fi cable extensions, and a platform for future 5G wireless transport. A centrally controlled mesh software solution resides on top of a WiGig MAC & PHY that can operate with multiple millimeter wave radio solutions. The solution is a low-cost alternative to fiber and traditional microwave solutions, where the low cost is achieved by leveraging high-volume WiGig chipsets, and large swaths of unlicensed spectrum.
