If mobile operators rely upon Wi-Fi to relieve themselves of data traffic they are going to need to find some way to get the data home. Right now they're heading for a data bottleneck.
So says Bluwan, which – guess what – has a solution to the problem: its 42GHz point to multi-point backhaul. It sees this as the way Wi-Fi can roll out to its predicted level of one public Wi-Fi hotspot for every 20 people on the planet.
It commissioned a survey from advisory company Real Wireless that came to the conclusion that Wi-Fi was the problem.
The company has 1GHz of spectrum and can support 2.5Gb/sec of data per sector.
