Wireless Backhaul for Wi-Fi is Here Using 60 GHz (& You Can Sell It)

Written by Andrea Lee

September 16, 2020

Episode Summary

60GHZ represents the continued evolution of the Wi-Fi 802.11 standard, dubbed 802.11ay. This “new” protocol is making big promises. Like all things tech, 60GHZ went from idea to implementation very quickly, and many people – partners, MSPs, and VARs – are looking forward to what it can do… but what can it really do?

Check out the Cambium Networks 60 GHz cnWave solution using Facebook Connectivity’s Terragraph technology and Qualcomm Technologies’ latest 802.11ay compliant technology to deliver reliable, fiber-like internet speeds at a significantly lower cost of ownership and faster time to market than alternative last-mile wired networks.

This 60-minute session gets into the what behind the how. Our goal is to educate our partners on what is happening with 60GHZ, when it’s coming, and how to get in front of this opportunity.

Discussion Takeaways:

  • How 60Ghz can deliver fiber-like speeds for a fraction of the price of fiber
  • Adding multi-gigabit wireless backhaul to your service offerings
  • Managing wireless backhaul and Wi-Fi as a single fabric
