Boingo Wireless
Boingo Broadband has deployed wireless broadband networks in more
than 60 US Army, Air Force and Marine Corps barracks over the past
three years, and the demand for the services has been dizzying. Its
WiFi design provides unprecedented flexibility, portability and simplicity
for the troops using it, and at the same time it presents tremendous
complexities for the network architects. For its ongoing advances in
meeting the demand in this unique customer environment, Boingo
Broadband took this year's Technology Innovation award.
" The very things that make this service incredibly beneficial to the
end user are what make it incredibly challenging " from a technical
standpoint, says Dawn Callahan, who runs Boingo Broadband for
L.A.-based Boingo Wireless. " Our take rates grew much faster than
our original model predicted. We have had to upgrade our radios and
increase backhaul back into certain locations where our take rate
has been extreme. One of the great things is that we take a different
approach than the traditional cable operators. "
Boingo's WiFi is built on RF backhaul via point-to-point and pointto-multipoint
bridge radios. Rather than installing fiber to connect
access points to the headend, Boingo links access points wirelessly to
a centralized controller from one building to the next, moving toward
the headend and then to a centralized data center. At a large military
base, there could be thousands of access points and more than 100
backhaul radios installed to ensure redundancy and avoid frequency
interference. Given the fortress-like nature of military bases, Boingo's
network must penetrate tricky structures, including concrete, rebar8
