e-xpedient/CAVU selects Canobeam III for Miami network

July 2, 2001
July 2, 2001--e-xpedient's network claims to be the first to use free-space optics (FSO) and 60 GHz broadband fixed-wireless radios to deliver 100 megabit-per-second (Mbps) broadband Internet services to commercial users of all sizes.

Canobeam III, a secure light beam transmission system from Canon Broadcast and Communications, has been selected by broadband supplier e-xpedient/CAVU, Inc. as a main component in the launch of its "last mile" solution to the Miami metropolitan area. e-xpedient's network claims to be the first to use free-space optics (FSO) and 60 GHz broadband fixed-wireless radios to deliver 100 megabit-per-second (Mbps) broadband Internet services to commercial users of all sizes.

With fast setup, Auto-Tracking system and 3R repeater technology, and no need for FCC frequency allocation, Canobeam gives e-xpedient a highly reliable link and constant footprint for its fully redundant, 100 Mbps Internet Protocol (IP), switched Ethernet network. e-xpedient customers have access to truly affordable broadband service in pricing packages from $100-$5,500 and up per month, with instant activation and full 100 Mbps speed regardless of how much they use the service.

The deployment of Canobeams along with 60 GHz radios to deliver service expands the e-xpedient "technology toolbox" that allows for dense deployments without interference issues or complicated frequency planning. As a result, the network maintains solid reliability and scalability as speed demands increase.
