Facebook & Qualcomm Planning 60GHz Urban Networks

4 monthes ago   |   By Android Headlines

Social giant Facebook will be working together with mobile network expert Qualcomm to create a high-speed network on the 60GHz spectrum band in select urban areas, the chipmaker said Monday. The pair will be utilizing Terragraph, a technology developed by Facebook that uses otherwise underutilized spectrum in the 60GHz band in conjunction with a large number of fixed nodes that cover a very small area each. These nodes are stitched together to create a far-reaching urban network that runs at multi-gigabit speeds and mostly matches wired networks in stability, all while being cheaper...

Facebook's plan to connect neighborhoods and businesses wirelessly, known as Terragraph, will begin field trials in 2019 using 60GHz technology from Qualcomm, the two companies said on Monday. Facebook began talking about Terragraph in 2016 , part of a bid to replace fiber broadband with 60GHz millimeter-wave wireless. The technology wouldn't replace Wi-Fi, but was designed to offer a replacement for fiber or cable to homes and businesses, forgoing the need to rip up streets and sidewalks. Now we have a date: 2019, the first time the technology will be tested, according to Jesse Burke, a...

It's called the Terragraph Project and it's been in the works since Facebook first announced it at the company's 2016 annual developer conference , describing the project as a “multi-node wireless system focused on bringing high-speed internet connectivity to dense urban areas.”
New Qualcomm chipsets will be integrated with the Terragraph technology, so that manufacturers can hopefully upgrade routers to be able...
