The Evolution of Fixed Wireless Broadband Connectivity

Over the past few years we have seen Fixed Wireless emerge as a very affordable, high-speed Internet connectivity option for businesses.  Fixed Wireless bypasses traditional wireline fiber and copper/coax last mile connections, utilizing digital microwave technology to beam transmissions via microwave radios that quickly install on business building rooftops. You avoid high build-out costs—and long waits for permitting and digging-up streets.

With this in mind, here are some key ways that Wireless Broadband can help your business:

  • Fast Installation: Fixed Wireless can typically be installed in less than 30 days, which is handy in case you need to open three new stores or offices quickly. With a copper or fiber broadband installation, you may have to wait six weeks. This will slow down your ability to complete transactions or conduct client business. In this case, we’d strongly recommend that you get Fixed Wireless until your primary connection is ready to go.

  • Full Diversity: Fixed Wireless service is delivered with 100% access diversity from traditional local exchange carrier fiber routes, providing a high-speed access alternative for businesses needing more robust connectivity

  • Ideal Backup Solution: Fixed Wireless operates as fully redundant backup for existing T1, DSL and Cable installations, and offers high-speed connectivity that is resilient to natural and man-made disasters.

  • Connect Remote Sites: If you’re in a really remote location, there may be no way to receive terrestrial or satellite broadband. You’ll have to turn to wireless because, quite frankly, you really don’t have any other option to get broadband.

With the migration of key business applications to the cloud, high network availability is no longer a luxury, it is a necessity. Whether supplementing existing connectivity from an alternate provider with standalone Fixed Wireless or combining it with an existing connectivity solution, there is no better way to maintain uninterrupted connectivity to business-critical applications.few
