Multi-Band and Differentiated Availability – a Surefire Advantage for Backhaul Networks

5G and rural broadband networks are on track to quickly outgrow the capabilities of microwave-only backhaul solutions. Taking a different, more flexible approach to backhaul planning and availability targets will be key to keep pace with capacity demands and control costs.

Part 1: There’s only one viable solution for 5G backhaul

It’s pretty simple – network operators need to build more capacity to support active or future planned deployments of 5G. Even operators who don’t see 5G on the horizon yet are facing new capacity demands, whether they have 4G/LTE networks or are delivering rural broadband services using fixed wireless access.

Stretching 11 GHz Links for Higher Capacity without Compromises

In this highly digitized broadband world, the demand for network capacity is always rising. Wireless internet service providers and mobile operators are all finding their customers demanding more bandwidth. Even utilities and local governments use more network bandwidth as they deploy surveillance cameras and other high-demand applications. Long-haul microwave links play a key role in delivering network capacity, and 6 GHz and 11 GHz frequencies are popular choices.

Lowering TCO with All-Indoor, Single Antenna 6+11 GHz Multi-Band

With the current landscape of network economics and challenges associated with capacity and spectrum, having multiple tools for link deployments, capacity growth, and future-proofing are necessary. In this blog, we’ll discuss the concept of Microwave Multi-Band, or the use of two different microwave frequency bands over one link, and specifically the combination of 6 GHz and 11 GHz.

Looking for a low cost way to grow your capacity?

It’s not just the cost of equipment that can break your budget.

Overlooked costs can quickly dwarf capital costs. Total-cost-of-ownership is the key metric to determine the true cost of network. See how one wireless network operator uses TCO to measure and control network costs.

Want to Lower Your Total Cost for Rural Broadband and 5G? Consider Multi-Band

Is traditional microwave dead? With the advent of Multi-Band, it could be. Why accept an old solution when you can have so much more by combining E-Band and traditional microwave into a single-box unit. Governments are taking action across the world to connect homes and businesses in rural areas to the rest of the world. From the 7-year action plan devised by National Broadband Ireland (NBI) to the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) $9.2 billion newly implemented Rural Digital Opportunity Fund, there is a worldwide focus on the connectedness of rural areas. As capacity demands increase rapidly for rural broadband networks, a better solution than traditional microwave is needed.

Revolutionizing 5G Mission Critical Transport Networks (Part 2)

Part 1 of our “Revolutionizing 5G Mission Critical Transport Networks” blog post series addressed microwave versus fiber as the better solution for mission critical 5G. We now continue our exploration focusing on mission critical use cases. Many critical applications, such as connected/autonomous cars, industrial Internet of Things (IoT), M2M, and public safety applications, require consistent reliability from their mobile networks. Under threat of multi-day outages from disasters and other types of network downtime and service outages, mobile networks must ensure the reliability and resiliency needed for 5G operation and its critical missions.

Case Study: Wicked Fast Internet’s Successful Multi-Band Deployment

Jeremy Ranch Golf & Country Club is in the Upper East Canyon of the Wasatch Mountains, on the outskirts of Park City, Utah. The Jeremy Ranch facility overlooks the rapidly expanding East Canyon Creek region, which includes Park City. To serve this growing community, Wicked Fast Internet looked for a way to provide high-capacity services to residents and businesses. They wanted to keep costs down and make sure that the selected technology would accommodate newly emerging high-capacity services, population growth, and geographical expansion.
