Outdoor Fixed Wireless Broadband technology provides the means to provide broadband access wirelessly giving the ability to transfer data, voice and video across long distances. Data, including voice and video can be ‘backhauled’ to great distances giving way to an inexpensive and effective infrastructure alternative. This solution is cost effective, cost-saving and easily deployed when comparing to traditional broadband infrastructures such as cable or phone lines. With such a rapid, efficient and easy deployment, this low cost solution has been utilized worldwide with proven results. One doesn’t have to look far to see an example of such a network deployed. Campuses, businesses, municipalities, oil fields, or even your local coffee shop that is offering you free Wi-Fi all utilize broadband access and many of these venues utilize this access wirelessly.
Outdoor Fixed Wireless Broadband solutions open the possibilities to whom you can transfer data to and from. Whether moving the information wirelessly over a short distance such as one business to another across the street or vast distances such as from one venue to another across the city or county, the possibilities are there. In addition, one can choose to securely transfer data from one point directly to another point or from one point to multiple points encompassing vast targeted areas. Considering the right equipment will provide secure data transfer whether the need is to move low or larger amounts of information. Depending on the level of security or perhaps the interference in an area of deployment, licensed frequency bands can be utilized. While unlicensed bands are free to use whenever one chooses to utilize it providing a great solution, there is always the possibility of interference from same frequency users especially in overly crowded areas. In a situation like this, taking advantage of licensed bands using the respective licensed branded gear, can offer a higher level of reliability and provide far better protection from interference from competing RF users.
