8 Rivers Networks
Access fiber speeds with wireless cost and convenience.
8 Rivers Networks is building the next-generation of wireless infrastructure, utilizing light-based technology to dramatically increase wireless speed, bandwidth, security, and reliability while drastically reducing installed costs.
Reimagining wireless communications with advanced photonics and ubiquitous connectivity.
About the project:
Demand for data bandwidth increases at a breakneck pace – at more than 50% per year. More and higher quality content combined with the ever-increasing reach of networks ensures this trend will continue for decades. At the moment, the technology foundation of wireless communications relies on a limited, regulated region of the radio frequency spectrum. This spectrum has fundamental limitations which prevent it from meeting the demands of the future. 8 Rivers Networks is reinventing wireless communication using advanced photonics to generate wireless signals with invisible light, opening a new world of communication at a fraction of the cost – taking wireless to a gigabit and beyond.
Wireless bandwidth demand is insatiable and increasing beyond the limited spectrum capacity of traditional radio frequency.
Robust, mesh-enabled, diffuse-beam optical transceivers.
Low-cost, high-bandwidth, license-free, optical wireless broadband.
Deploying with pilot customers.
Gigabit per second speed, and platform for further acceleration: 100X faster than current cellular speeds.
Disruptive cost-per-connected-user pushes gigabit-plus speeds to the network edges
Using unlicensed spectrum to break through the red tape of wired deployments
Overcoming the limitations of legacy point-to-point optical connections.
