Comuna 13

Pilot Deployment


Comuna Gateway

(Escuela Refugio Del Niño)


Gateway Station

The school is located in a great position atop a ridge overlooking the comuna. Our backhaul connects to the school via point to point radio link, and will then be distributed to the community via sector antennas.

Any houses with a direct view can point an inexpensive antenna at the sector antenna above the school and receive internet. From these hub houses, neighbors can connect via ethernet cable and receive service. 

Houses connecting over cable can also connect others over cable.
