Etheric Networks and Globtel Holding Announce Completion of Hybrid E-Band Wireless and Fiber Internet Service in Berkeley
New E-Band mmWave Service via Fixed Wireless will offer Gigabit speeds to East Bay businesses and homes.
SAN MATEO, Calif. – January 26, 2023 – Etheric Networks, a leading provider of fiber + wireless internet service in the Bay Area, and Globtel Holding today announced the deployment of a new base station in Emeryville using Globtel’s AIR Gigaray E-Band technology. The deployed base station is the first in a series that will comprise a new commercial fiber-like wireless network in the area. This expansion brings new internet options to thousands of businesses and homes in Emeryville and Berkeley.
Etheric Networks deployed Globtel’s E- Band (mmWave) AIR Gigaray solution at Pacific Park Plaza, which will provide more than a gigabit of throughput to end-users while supporting the multi-gigabit capacity of the base station. For locations already served by in-ground fiber or cable, rooftop fixed wireless is a natural choice for business backhaul or failover.
Benefits of Millimeter Wave
- Higher speed facilitates the continuous real-time transmission of large amounts of data.
- Wider bandwidth improves performance of data-intensive applications.
- Lower latency supports real-time services and cloud-based computing systems.
About Etheric Fiber + Wireless Internet
- Etheric goes where DSL and cable can’t – Fiber + wireless networks deliver Gigabit speeds via radio waves transmitted to an antenna located on the exterior of a home or business – no trenching is required.
- One high-speed connection can serve an entire building – Apartments and multi-tenant businesses can share service to reduce cost.
- Scalable to meet the needs of growing communities – With the ever-improving power and range of today’s technology, service can be delivered to remote communities where fiber doesn’t make sense economically or ecologically.
Alexander Hagen, CEO, Etheric Networks, said: “Etheric was founded to deliver capabilities and speeds that the large providers haven’t yet achieved, and we are committed to exploring new ways to provide cutting edge, next-generation services to our community using an energy-efficient, green approach. The service we are bringing to Berkeley using Globtel E-Band millimeter wave technology is multi-gigabit, backed by our own dark fiber with direct peering connections to all premium Silicon Valley content delivery networks such as Apple, Netflix, Google, and Yahoo.”
