AT&T’s AirGig Trial for Low-Cost Multi-Gigabit Wireless Internet
AT&T plans to mount small radio cells on top of utility poles to deliver high-speed Internet to customers without burying new cable. It’s still an experimental project, but AirGig’s cells will not tap into the power grid or use the power lines to transmit RF energy. AirGig is powered by induction from the power lines and also uses them as a waveguide to transport multi-gigabit traffic in a mesh network. Compatible with 4G and 5G small cells and DAS systems AirGig will deliver high-speed data to homes, businesses, and rural areas.
