What is the Wireless Local Loop in Houston?
The local loop, or last mile, is the part of the broadband infrastructure that connects your business location to the nearest point-of-presence of the network service provider or ISP. If your service is provided by the local phone company, cable or fiber service providers, local loop refers to the terrestial cabling that connects you to the nearest “on-net” point of your service provider. If your service is wireless, the local loop is the connection between the service provider’s base station and the subscriber unit at your business location that transmits and receives data wirelessly.
Wireless Local Loop Solutions in Houston
Getting your Internet access service from a company that uses a fixed wireless local loop, like Airband, has some advantages over wireline alternatives:
- No additional Internet access port charges. Airband’s service includes the local loop and internet access.
- The infrastructure is easier to install. Instead of miles of cabling, the only physical installation is of a subscriber unit, a small antenna that is installed on the roof of your building to transmit and receive data signals. This is better for you and the environment, as miles of cable are not needed to be buried in the ground do deploy your service.
- The service is easier to customize and upgrade. Because fixed wireless service does not require cable to be laid, initial installation is much faster and bandwidth increases are easier to deploy. Instead of installing an additional T1 line terrestially, for example, bandwidth adjustments can be implemented with sofware changes to the wireless system.
- Fixed wireless services are more affordable than wired services. Because of the ease of installation, the service we provide to you can be delivered at a fraction of the time and less cost than traditional wireline service, guaranteeing you the same level of reliability and speed without costing a fortune.
These advantages make Airband’s wireless local loop and Internet access services a better choice for businesses of all sizes, saving you money and time while still delivering the exact level of service that you need to run your business.
