Facebook & Qualcomm Planning 60GHz Urban Networks

2 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...
