Cable-to-House Wideband Wireless Link and Relay

Reference#: P01676


There is a need to provide an information distribution system having greater networking and information bandwidth, reduction of obsolescence costs, increases in mobility, lower human electromagnetic exposure, and reduced costs of services.

It is, therefore, an aspect of the present invention to provide a system and method for distributing information using wideband wireless networks.

The foregoing aspects of the present invention are realized by a system for the bi-directional distribution of information between a fiber optic cable and at least one subscriber location having a distribution network for distributing the information within the subscriber location, comprising a junction box connected to a fiber optic cable information system for transceiving a signal of a fiber optic cable and a wideband wireless signal, and a first node located at a first of the at least one subscriber location for transceiving the wideband wireless signal and a signal for use in the distribution system of the at least one subscriber location.

In a preferred embodiment of the present invention, a method for the bidirectional distribution of information between a fiber optic cable and at least one subscriber location having a distribution system for distributing the information within the subscriber location, comprises the steps of transceiving by a junction box connected to a fiber optic cable information system a signal of a fiber optic cable and a wideband wireless signal, and transceiving by a first house node located at a first of the at least one subscriber location the wideband wireless signal and a signal for use in the distribution network of the at least one subscriber location.
