A US company has released a fast wireless technology that can be used to send data over the last mile - the final leg between communications service providers' facilities and their customers. GigaBeam's millimeter-wave technology could address the challenges found in accelerating last-mile communications. GigaBeam's millimeter-wave technology could enable a building on an optical wide area network to wirelessly provide high-speed communications to other buildings that don't have access to such services because they don't have their own optical fiber connections. All buildings would need roof-mounted millimeter-wave transceivers and antennas that are in direct line-of-sight with one another
