1.INTRODUCTION
Data transmission, digital transmission or digital communications is the physical transfer of data(a digital bit stream over a point-to-point or point-to-multipoint communication channel. Examples of such channels are copper wires, optical fibers, wireless communication channels, and storage media. The data is represented as an electromagnetic signal, such as an electrical voltage, radio wave, microwave or infrared signal. For high rate of data transmission we commonly use optical fibers. Optical fibers are widely used in fiber-optic communications, which permits transmission over longer distances and at higher bandwidths (data rates) than other forms of communication. Fibers are used instead of metal wires because signals travel along them with less loss and are also immune to electromagnetic interference. Fibers are also used for illumination, and are wrapped in bundles so they can be used to carry images, thus allowing viewing in tight spaces. But this technology also have many disadvantages such as price, fragility etc. To overcome these disadvantages, GIGABEAM called a Virginian telecommunication startup introduced a new technology called WiFiber. This is a wireless technology which is used for data transmission between two points. This is a true substitute for fiber technology. It is used now for high specific data transmission. It actually succeeded to sit on the place of fiber optics in our world. WiFiber operates in the 71-76, 81-86, and 92-95GHz frequencies to avoid interference and so that the signal is less impeded by light rain or fog than current high-speed wireless competitors. It also transmits in a tight beam to avoid overlap, but you still need a line of sight, so heavy rain can spoil your day. If conditions are right, though, GigaBeam's signal can make it for 10 miles, and is already shooting data from the Trump towers in NY and from a few other metro sites. Unfortunately, it's mainly for business links right now, since it's currently $30,000 for a set of radios (but that price should drop soon).But when we compare its price with fiber installation price it is less costly than other. And further improvement in WiFiber technology reduces its cost again. In earlier days WiFiber technology supports of data rate 1.25gbps only and now it is improves to 2.7gbps. Similarly these changes can be

For that I made a brief study about that topic and it is described under following sections. In here the first section gives the simple introduction to WiFiber and it follows by the disadvantages of optical fiber, and the about wireless technology. In the second section we can discuss about the features about WiFiber.

This system is dubbed "WiFiber" by its creator,Gigabeam, a Virginia-based telecommunications startup. Although the technology is wireless, the company's approach -- high-speed data transferring across a point-to-point network -- is more of an alternative to fiber optics, than to Wi-Fi or Wi-Max, says John Krzywicki, the company's vice president of marketing. And it's best suited for highly specific data delivery situations. This kind of point-to-point wireless technology could be used in situations where digging fiber-optic trenches would disrupt an environment, their cost be prohibitive, or the installation process take too long, as in extending communications networks in cities, on battlefields, or after a disaster. To understand about WiFiber we need to know about Optical fiber. The GigaBeam wireless communications solution is a protocolindependent, high-speed, point-to-point and line-of-sight wirelesscommunications link established between two GigaBeam transceiver units.Wifiber Is Point-to-Point Wireless Microwave Radio.WiFiber digital millimeter-wave radio is the first product to exploit therecently released 71 - 76 GHz, 81 - 86 GHz and 92 ± 95 GHzfrequency bands (lowest potential for atmospheric interference).WiFiber offers true full-duplex Gigabit data rates (1.25 Gbps) in costeffective radio architecture. Transmission distances of over 1 mile canbe achieved with carrier-class 99.999% availability under all weather conditions.

A WiFiber radio operates at much higher frequency bands than anyother services using much greater spectrum bandwidth. Technical rulesallow the full 5 GHz of bandwidth to be used to host both the transmitand receive data. • GigaBeam links utilize a highly directional millimeter-wave (MMW)antenna and a low-noise amplitude-modulated transceiver. Theantennas generate a pencil-like beam less than one degree wide.This narrow beam translates to a small illuminated ³footprint´ at thereceiving antenna location.

Fragility . we need to face many physical challenges also. one fibre can carry many more signals than a single copper cable and the large transmission distances mean that fewer expensive repeaters are required.Wifiber Page:4 • This product is light weight (approximately 50 lbs).

GigaBeam exploits those frequencies that are less susceptible to absorption by air and water molecules. but in areas where heavy rains occur. there's an intrinsic physical challenge: molecules in the atmosphere absorb energy at certain frequencies.

It is created by the virgian based telecommunication startups called Gigabeam. This kind of point-to-point wireless technology could be used in situations where digging fiber-optic trenches would disrupt an environment. but 70/80 GHzwireless is the only solution that offers carrier-class reliability at anysignificant distance at a cost that can transform backhaul andaccess business models. we discussed many features. or after a disaster. or the installation process take too long. Commercially available equipment can provide fiber-like performance ata fraction of the cost of laying fiber or leasing capacity.999% availability at distances of one mile or more. reliable architectures.Wifiber Page:31 Here I presented an important approach to data transmission with high specific data delivery.Of Electronics College Of Applied Science. Severalother technologies exist to provide gigabit services. BIBILIOGRAPHY Dept. We discussed many applications and the future scopes of this technology in our modern world. on battlefields.
