“Terragraph will open an entirely new realm of possibilities in Canton’s Innovation District, and more broadly over Agile’s multistate geography,” Agile Networks CEO Kyle Quillen said.

Today, Agile Networks, a leading USA provider of telecommunications solutions, announces a new pilot deployment of a Fixed Wireless Access solution that will help address the bandwidth challenge on Micropolitan areas across the USA, starting with Canton, Ohio. Agile will deploy RADWIN’s Terragraph technology leveraging their long-term relationship with RADWIN to implement the system.

Terragraph by RADWIN was developed in collaboration with Facebook, RADWIN and Intel. The project will serve as a global pilot to showcase how Terragraph can improve the telecommunications infrastructure of midsize cities ushering in more innovation, economic development, and growth.

“Terragraph will open an entirely new realm of possibilities in Canton’s Innovation District, and more broadly over Agile’s multistate geography,” Agile Networks CEO Kyle Quillen said. “By leveraging our partnerships with global leaders in telecommunications and connectivity, we’re able to install the first system that delivers multi-gig access to the entities within the Innovation District more efficiently and at a significantly lower cost than traditional fiber installation.

“Our team has been working for years with government entities at all levels to maximize the use of broadband as an economic development tool and a driving force to shape the future economic outlook for cities across Ohio. Terragraph is a game changer in this effort.”

Terragraph by RADWIN, an advanced 60GHz mesh solution, delivers multi-gig wireless access services to homes and businesses in urban and suburban environments, expanding service providers’ network coverage beyond the fiber footprint. The system will enable rapid and cost-effective access to high-speed connectivity, bringing customers speeds up to 10-100 times faster than their existing connections. Terragraph enables multi-gigabit connectivity at fraction of the cost of buried fiber as it’s suitable for street level deployments on poles or buildings. The unique mesh architecture overcomes the mmWave challenges such as line-of-sight and range and enables network efficient and cost-effective expansion of broadband services.

“RADWIN has been an innovative provider of Fixed Wireless Access solutions for the past 20 years and we experience first-hand the challenges service providers face in extending fiber to every house and business. This collaboration with Facebook in the development of our Terragraph-based system will introduce a breakthrough wireless solution and our partnership with Agile provides the perfect opportunity to deploy the first pilot of our Terragraph system and provide a new level of broadband connectivity to a city committed to driving innovation and growth,” Sharon Sher, RADWIN President and CEO.

Access to broadband is now deemed an essential service to participate in the global economy. With the technology available today, there is no reason for high-speed connectivity to be restricted to large metropolitan areas such as New York, Los Angeles, London and Hong Kong.

Terragraph technology helps address the connectivity shortfall and empowers underserved communities by providing high capacity broadband connectivity to residences and businesses, laying the foundation to build Smart Cities, growing innovation district and positioning cities for future growth through the ability to scale with evolving technology.

“We believe that people, no matter where they live, deserve a consistent, high-bandwidth internet experience. We are excited to work with Agile Communications and RADWIN as they deploy Terragraph technology in order to bring internet connectivity to more people who are unconnected or do not currently have fast or reliable access,” said Dan Rabinovitsj, vice president of Connectivity, Facebook.

Once complete, the Canton Innovation District project serves as a model to be replicated in dozens of cities across Ohio, hundreds of cities across the USA and tens of thousands of cities across the globe. By shifting the communications landscape with the integration of Terragraph, cities all over the world can create pathways for economic development and community growth through more powerful and more affordable technology that completely changes the communications landscape.
