About David Theodore

Today, David is co-founder of Climate Resilient Internet, LLC, breathing new life into wireless backhaul as a Certified Standard for critical business and government operations.

As founder of Microwave Bypass, David developed the first fixed wireless solution for the internet (1987). It connected world leading institutions and tech firms, desperate to tap the emerging internet in the days before fiber. 

In 2010, David led the low-latency frenzy, securing a 720-mile wireless (6GHz) route for high frequency trading between the CME & NYSE.

"Businesses don't trust fixed wireless." I hear it all the time, but that's total bullshit.

Fixed wireless brought the earliest internet access to world leading universities, hospitals, research centers and tech companies from the late 1980's through the 1990's. And far from sucking—as early tech often does—it conformed to the 802.3 spec and met the then full internet speed of 10Mbps (FD). 

Here's some early trade press, which might surprise you if you thought fixed wireless access started with the launch of 802.11 (1997). There's tons more where this came from.
