Technical Details

Simulation of concrete wall penetration by microwaves, right, shows signal reduction of about 20 dB. The near-field coupled RF is confined, therefore providing privacy.
Microwatt signal levels are sufficient for low BERs.
With this capability, the Wall Coupler can be used also as a relay in wireless networks, as WiFi and WiMax, to overcome signal attenuation by walls and ceilings, see publication by G. Knapp, referenced below.
