Wireless Broadband

Wireless broadband is the transmission of wide bandwidth data over a high- speed wireless Internet connection.


MBSI WAV is the distributor for the technology and communication platforms (point to point and point to multipoint radios) to deliver bandwidth to rural areas where traditional fiber optic solutions cannot reach. As a distributor with the largest and most consistent stocking position in the service provider market, MBSI WAV is ready to assist with your next project.

Since 2003, MBSI WAV has been bridging the digital divide by providing our service provider, municipal and tribal communities with unlicensed and licensed wireless broadband and LTE equipment. In situations where traditional fiber solutions - are not economical nor feasible, our point to point and point to multipoint solutions, available in a myriad of frequencies for each application, including, but not limited to 5GHz, 3.65GHz, 60GHz, 80GHz, can be leveraged to connect communities in hours and days instead of weeks and months.

The adoption of wireless broadband as an alternative to fiber communications was accelerated in March 2020 as Covid-19 exposed digital inequality throughout Canada. As stay at home orders were implemented, students, businesspeople, indigenous communities in areas where rural broadband was unavailable, struggled to stay connected to their schools, places of work and healthcare providers and trenching fiber to those in need resulted in long lead times. In areas where fiber could not be trenched at all, wireless broadband played an integral role.

At WAV, Last Mile Gear and MBSI WAV, we see many of our customers taking a hybrid wired and wireless broadband approach where both fiber and point to point, and point to multipoint solutions, deliver a seamless, homogenous network experience. At the end of the day, it is all about bringing the bandwidth and connectivity needed to connect rural communities, FAST. A hybrid approach accomplishes this.

One of the wireless broadband point-to-point and point to multipoint solutions we have seen adopted by many wireless Internet service providers for its spectral efficiency and massive multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO), is the Cambium Networks cnMedusa product, available in 5GHz and 3.65GHz frequencies. With today’s bandwidth and capacity needs, combined with service level requirement from federal subsidy programs, Cambium’s cnMedusa solution boasts a 14 x 14 Multi- user MIMO system on the 5 GHz model, allowing simultaneous communication to up to seven SMs. 8 x 8 Multi-user MIMO system on the 3 GHz model allows simultaneous communication to up to four SMs. Want to get started?
