Wireless Broadband for Business in Atlanta from Airband
There are two types of wireless Internet access. The first is Wi-Fi. A Wi-Fi network creates a “hotspot” where Internet service is available to those who can pick up the signal. This “best effort” service is often used in home networks and in businesses that provide free wireless service to their patrons, such as coffee shops and Internet cafes.
The second type is fixed wireless. This technology uses the WiMax standard (among others) to deliver high speed broadband service from base stations to specific subscriber unit antennas wirelessly instead of through traditional copper or fiber optic circuits. The fixed wireless network it creates is closed, meaning that only the intended user or users is able to access the encrypted signal.
Providing broadband service to businesses wirelessly has several advantages over traditional wireline alternatives.
- It is much easier to and faster to install. This cuts down on the time and cost of installation and allows your business to start using its broadband service quickly.
- It is more scalable and easier to increase bandwidth than wireline options. With wireline broadband, the level of service depends on the type of cabling that is installed at your office. A single T1 circuit, for example, can provide 1.54 Mbps of bandwidth. To increase bandwidth, additional circuits must be installed and bonded together. With Airband’s fixed wireless network, the level of bandwidth can be adjusted by increasing or decreasing the signal strength between the base station and the subscriber unit antenna. The infrastructure is the same, whether you want two Mbps of bandwidth or up to GigE speeds.
- It is more flexible. Because there are no infrastructure changes required, you can change the level of service you need in hours and days not weeks or months. This allows you to request additional bandwidth only when you need it, instead of constantly paying for more service than you generally require because you occasionally need the extra speed.
