    TangoTec hopes to make copper wiring in the home speedier, a boon for those with fibre to their door but not in their house. It uses all of the wires, connecting them up to an Ethernet adaptor, which uses them to make a speedy connection to all devices.

    SAF Australia provides microwave radio products for wide area networks in areas where it would be too costly to build out networks. The receivers can be placed up to 50km apart, and are power efficient, which, in areas where alternate power sources such as solar cells are necessary, can mean a cost saving. The equipment is capable of providing 366Mbps and can be stacked to increase the figure. Resources companies make up much of the customer base. Fortescue Metals, Ballina Council and Hunter Water are some of the companies that have implemented the product.

    This is the back of one of the receivers.
