Fiber is no longer the only option for reaching gigabit link speed. Wireless technology has rapidly evolved to "wireless fiber" status with “fiber-like” gigabit wireless bridges and access points with low latency and long range, at what can be a fraction of the cost of trenching fiber. Wireless Fiber is ideal for dense deployments in residential neighborhoods and MDUs, as well as for carrier backhaul, building-to-building enterprise use, or public safety applications.
Key Advantages of Wireless Fiber PTP/PTMP include reductions in:
- Cost, time, and crew required for installation
- Truck rolls related to fiber optic damage from utilities and other companies digging in the coverage area
- Wait time to realize ROI
- Customer wait time for service availability
- Security required (only ends need to be secured)
- Digging or destruction of the environment
Wireless Fiber PTP +PTMP Network Diagram - A gigabit wireless bridge is used for point-to-point backhaul, where the access point then transmits the internet signal from the end of the bridge down to residential and/or commercial CPEs.
