Aeronet pilots Facebook Terragraph 60GHz solution in San Juan

18 Feb 2020

Puerto Rican B2B ISP Aeronet has embarked on a fixed-wireless pilot project in Old San Juan using the emergent Facebook Terragraph solution. Terragraph – which has previously been utilised in Alameda, California (by Common Networks) and Mikebuda, Hungary (by Magyar Telekom) – leverages spectrum in the 60GHz band and has been designed with a view to ‘solving the urban bandwidth challenge’. Old San Juan has been selected as the trial location on account of its status as a UNESCO heritage site, where fibre deployments are challenging. The pilot will run for a period of six months, supporting fixed-wireless broadband and public Wi-Fi services.
