A couple of Trump buildings in New York City are being connected via wireless links that operate in a very high frequency: Microwave Satellite Technologies is operating the network, which is built using gear from GigaBeam that operates in the 71 GHz to 76 GHz band and the 81 GHz to 86 GHz band. The network will deliver voice, video, and data to residents in the buildings. My initial reaction to a system that operates in those high spectrum bands is that the range would have to be incredibly short, but GigaBeam claims in its Web site that the links can reach a mile.
