This livestream has concluded. The archive video will be posted here. Archives can take up to two weeks to be posted.

Session Abstract

GigaBeam's John Krzywicki and Dr. Jonathan Wells will discuss the current state of multi-gigabit wireless communications for very high bandwidth short haul connectivity for education, research, and government deployments. They will address spectrum availability and suitability for multi-gigabit services, including the 1 to 10 Gbps GigaBeam has committed to and the 100 Gbps possibility the company is now exploring. As part of the discussion, they will discuss the evolution of semiconductor technology that has enabled these wireless data rates allowing fiber-like throughput particularly where it serves the difficulties presented by "last mile" fiber connectivity. The two will focus on current and soon to be implemented applications and look at models of how the university, military, government and related IT enterprises are using this technology today. Special attention will be paid to NAS, SAN, remote computing, grid computing and other similar applications. The two will then present how they expect multi-gigabit wireless to evolve over the next one to three years.
