4 things a WISP shouldn’t struggle with

4 things a WISP shouldn’t struggle with

 1. Interference Interference is a common and troublesome issue that WISPs are constantly faced with. The lack of wires that makes wireless so attractive is also what makes it more prone to interference. This interference is mainly caused by the number of devices that operate within the same frequency. To combat this issue RADWIN developed Bi-Directional Beamforming Technology. This technology enables Service Providers to deliver the highest industry capacity with the longest range and unparalleled radio interference immunity, only addressing one CPE at a time, with an 8-degree beam and minimal side-lobes. With RADWIN JET, service providers get a disruptive Point-to-MultiPoint (PtMP) smart beamforming solution. RADWIN JET is the perfect choice for operation in heavily congested unlicensed bands where spectrum resources are scarce.

Delivering Capacity Service providers are often faced with capacity limitations that are brought on by interference and the inability to deliver the desired capacity to clients. RADWIN JET uniquely delivers fixed, high-transmission power across all modulations. When combined with increased gain and an interference-immune Bi-Beam antenna, RADWIN JET delivers greater downlink and uplink capacity and a longer range than conventional PtMP solutions. Your network should allow you to increase your customer base and the capacity per subscriber and widen your coverage footprint – all without increasing the total cost of ownership. Conventional PtMP equipment reaches maximum capacity at 20-30 subscribers whereas the RADWIN JET can handle up to 64 subscribers before reaching maximum capacity, with the ability to stack several sectors whilst maintaining GPS Synchronisation, or the option to upgrade to the JET DUO...

Address underserved markets with the ultimate 2-in-1 wireless radio

Address underserved markets with the ultimate 2-in-1 wireless radio

Wireless is the ideal technology for driving broadband to the last mile in underserved areas. However, in many cases, the capital investment to deploy high capacity connectivity outweighs the number of initial clients. Which is why RADWIN has developed an affordable wireless broadband solution that meets the needs of service providers while maintaining the level of quality you would expect from RADWIN. Compact and durable, the dual-purpose Alpha PTP radio guarantees exceptional performance at a highly competitive price and enables service providers to serve their clients without having to invest in a full-blown sectorized base station just yet. To address these underserved areas with lower investment costs, the dual-purpose Alpha radio can serve as a stand-alone Point-to-Point link and can be repurposed as a CPE by simply swopping out your radios on the tower-side with a RADWIN JET. Any remaining Alpha’s from previous Point-to-Point links, can then further be repurposed as subscriber units for adding new clients, saving you money, time and effort, allowing you to serve Home and Business customers with up to 500Mbps worth of aggregate capacity, per subscriber! Contact us today for expert advice on how you can start addressing these underserved areas! Our team will assist you with the planning of the initial project, choosing the perfect solutions and equip you with the knowledge to future-proof your business with our RADWIN certified training.
