Using New Utility-Pole-Mounted Radio Technology to Service a Community with Rolling Hills

CENGN residential broadband blueprints are made available to the public. Each blueprint showcases a broadband deployment barrier and the tech solution to overcome internet connectivity across Canada.

Problem: Modernize the high-speed Internet service for sparsely situated residences on a relatively flat landscape with some modest rolling hills and some forested areas by utilizing a network of power-utility poles.

Tech Solution: The solution utilized the following to reduce network costs and accelerate deployment timeframes

  • Novel wireless mesh Data Pipeline technology avoiding the need for an expensive centralized tower-based solution.
  • A flexible, adaptable and scalable network design overcoming the terrain and geographical constraints of traditional tower-based solutions.
  • A unique business model combining equipment innovation, design, and manufacture with Internet service operations under one business organization.

This blueprint is intended as an information resource for any stakeholder or individuals interested in or looking to undertake the delivery of rural residential high-speed internet, including:

  • Community professionals and constituencies that work in municipal administration, business development, planning, public works, IT, and local residential high-speed Internet advocacy organizations.
  • Service providers interested in delivering residential high-speed Internet to rural communities.
  • Innovation and funding organizations aiming to accelerate or scale high-speed Internet related innovation, introduction, and return on investment (ROI).
  • Those interested in researching innovative Residential Broadband Program solutions.
