Point to point wireless links or bridges are a reliable alternative to traditional and expensive fibre leased lines. They can link two locations when budgets and timescales simply cannot accommodate the substantial dig costs and lead times need to lay cable into the ground.
As long as near line of sight – sometimes even non line of sight – can be achieved, we can link buildings on the same campus, remote locations where traditional connectivity is a challenge and multiple sites in built-up areas providing excellent performance and reliability.
We provide both licensed and unlicensed links to deliver data, voice and video from cost-effective licence-free 5Ghz links to carrier class 60Ghz V band and 70/80Ghz E band links.Contact us for advice
Many businesses spend thousands of pounds per annum on the rental of fibre leased lines but this could be an unnecessary revenue cost where point to point wireless technology can offer an alternative means of connectivity.
The quick return on investment lies in the method of communication. Traditional leased lines are physical cables laid over public land to connect business locations to existing carrier networks and then onwards to your other sites. These leased lines and connections attract a rental fee year on year. Point to point wireless links or bridges do not incur rental costs and quick to deploy, taking weeks rather than months.
Point to point wireless links or bridges connect via signals transmitted through the air and therefore no line rentals are payable. The only operational costs relate to ongoing support and maintenance. The result is significantly reduced CAPEX and OPEX to give you a rapid ROI.
Our licensed permanent point to point wireless links or bridges are completely private - you own your link. They are reliable and robust too, providing a true carrier class connection to safeguard your business against any interruption from potential threats.
Point to point links can deliver between 50Mbps half duplex to 2Gbps full duplex over distances between 10m to 50km. Smaller bandwidths are achievable over greater distances. Point to point can deliver incremental bandwidths, to expand with your business.
The speed and simplicity of point to point deployment is markedly better. Modern solutions are similar to residential satellite dishes and can be easily mounted on a user’s own buildings. This process takes a matter of weeks compared to the months needed for leased lines.
We can also provide point to multi-point solutions to connect multiple buildings on a school, college or university campus or business park, provide backhaul for multiple CCTV cameras or Internet access for houses or businesses in an ISP network.
