SkyPilot: Redefining Broadband Wireless
The key value of any wireless product is its ability to deliver the necessary capacity over an area of coverage at a cost that enables a favorable return on investment.
The impediment to achieving this simple goal is RF signal attenuation, which imposes constraints when balancing the contradictory objectives of close proximity (to enhance capacity) and long range (to extend coverage and lower costs). For example, a point-to-multipoint base station at a tower provides high capacity to subscribers in close proximity but capacity lessens over distance. To resolve capacity degradation, a point-to-point link can be deployed from the tower to a remote point-to-multipoint base station optimally situated to provide better proximity and increase capacity but at a significant increase in costs.
