  7. SBIR Phase I: Low-Loss Ad-Hoc Networking for Outdoor WiFi

    SBC: MeshPlusPlus, Inc.            Topic: EW

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this project enables connectivity in otherwise difficult areas. Broadband access in rural America, for example, has been a lasting problem that inhibits business and education alike. The primary barrier to installation is the cost of trenching cable, which can be $7,000-$30,000 per service location. Similar challenges exist in emerging markets and remote ...
