After several years of development Facebook’s networking division is finally getting the commercial UK launch of their new Terragraph wireless broadband technology off the ground. This uses a mesh of small cell style 60GHz (mmW) base stations to distribute a gigabit speed broadband ISP connection across communities.
The idea of using the 60GHz millimeter Wave (mmW) band to create a mesh style outdoor Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) network is a fairly recent development (note: the indoor focused 802.11ad WiFi standard has been using 60GHz for years), although we have seen similar technology being deployed by Broadway Partners in rural Wales via the CCS Metnet 60G platform (here) and a few trials with other setups have also taken place.
The use of the 60GHz band enables operators to access a lot of extra spectrum frequency in order to send data, which is excellent for achieving gigabit speeds, except the signals are so weak that they can’t travel very far before losing too much performance (c.250 metres). However by adopting the mesh approach it’s possible to reach further (i.e. each base station acts a bit like an access point and helps to extend the signal for other units)
5G, 60 GHz, Oxygen Absorption, You, and Coronavirus
Individuals need to take full responsibility for their health and safeguard loved ones
I transcribed the opening of this video for you to know what 60 GHz does to the human body.
Dana Ashley narrates [the following in not word for word]
The impacts of 60 gigahertz [GHz] are not widely published but here’s what I can tell you, and it’s a part, ironically, from promotional material of the big telecom companies themselves. It reads “60 GHz has a very distinct impact on none other than oxygen itself.”
Yes, there are articles released by companies touting the benefits of 60 GHz. They openly admit that 60 GHz is absorbable by oxygen.
You can see in this graph here its impact on oxygen.
