Why is there a need for the technology?

More and more aspects of life are becoming dependent upon having a high-speed connection to the Internet; current infrastructures have serious limitations.

Cable/fibre connections in urban areas are fine but are not viable for rural users due to cost implications of digging up roads etc and are of no use to moving users.

Technologies exploiting exiting telephone wires (ADSL) have speed limitations. Satellite systems offer excellent capabilities but have limited capacity the technology cannot support a high number of users.

The CAPANINA approach offers a true alternative to existing broadband options.

Experiences have shown that applications and services rapidly evolve to fill up just about whatever capacity is available.
