Fixed wireless is the use of microwave signals to connect two fixed locations (e.g., building to building or tower to building) with a radio or other wireless link. The purpose of a fixed wireless link is to enable data communications between the two sites or buildings. Fixed wireless data links are often a cost-effective alternative to leasing fiber or installing cable or telephone lines.
It’s a simple form of technology that is growing in popularity with an estimated 8 million subscribers expected to subscribe to the service by 2022, according to this report from WISPA.
Fixed wireless is a reliable technology that can withstand extreme weather conditions and perform equal, if not better than, a wired connection.
Fixed wireless does possess some minor limitations - the need for a line of sight and the higher cost could represent sticking points but working with a local provider often means that a solution to the problem can be found.
Fixed wireless represents the ideal choice for homes and businesses seeking a dedicated, reliable and high-speed internet connection with the promise of local support.
