HF links are the equivalent of a very long-distance microwave segment – a wireless connection stretched between two antennas thousands of kilometers apart. HF – High-Frequency radio band (also named Shortwave) can cross lands and oceans as it is reflected to earth by layers of the atmosphere.
Raft links connect major exchanges globally with the fastest data speeds available. Raft links are 100% wireless, carrying signals at the speed of light in air (which is 50% faster than the speed of light through fiber), and taking the shortest path between two points on the globe.
