Leaky cable – Wifi signal using cable

Recently a friend of mine shared a new technology installed at his office that really caught my attention. The technology is called leaky cable. It is a coaxial cable that has small sections of its copper shielding stripped away to allow radio frequency (RF) signals to escape. The radio signal is emitted through those slots to communicate with other devices, providing a stable limited-range communication area around the cable. 

This technology replaced the existing conventional Access Point infrastructure.

Look awesome isn’t? They just installed it yesterday. I am looking forward to hear the performance updates from my friend. Let’s give him a month or two to monitor, I will share it here.
