When you need to bridge the gap between two or more structures, fixed-point wireless radio technology often outperforms wifi and other mobility solutions.
Using permanently-mounted outdoor radios designed to operate on a range of frequency bands, fixed-point wireless connects structures anywhere from hundreds of feet to many miles apart (think remote buildings such as substations, solar charging stations, and parking garages that need to connect to one another, and/or to your corporate wireless network). Even physical obstructions like trees and other structures can often be overcome with the use of near or non-line-of-sight technology (NLOS).
Velaspan’s engineering team designs and installs purpose-built fixed-point wireless systems for campuses, industrial facilities, entertainment venues – any enterprise looking to achieve remote connectivity without installing costly dedicated fiber. Many who assume fixed-point wireless won’t work are surprised to learn that it will. Our expert engineers choose from point-to-point, point-to-multi-point, or mesh technology depending on your unique requirements.
Most Velaspan fixed-point wireless projects consist of the following phases:
Doubtful that fixed-point wireless will work for your location due to terrain or obstructions? An optional, low-cost Velaspan feasibility study assesses, with high probability, the viability of fixed-point wireless for your scenario. Performed remotely, feasibility studies lean on satellite imagery and topographic maps as well as photos provided by your team, sparing you the expense of an onsite visit by our engineers. Findings let you determine whether or not to move forward.
A path analysis is an onsite assessment that informs every last detail of design. Velaspan engineers carefully inspect and photograph your location’s roofs, wiring closets, potential mounting locations, obstructions, cable and power requirements, and more. In-depth discussions with your team drive decisions about bandwidth requirements. Path assessment findings let us choose right-fit topology and technology, down to model and brand, and design a deployable system that hits every mark.
From physical installation to benchmarking system performance, Velaspan implementation ensures that fixed-point wireless performs as intended. We can assist or oversee turnkey implementation spearheaded by your team or a low-voltage cable vendor, or we can handle it in full – either way providing complete documentation as we align, install, and turn up your fixed-point wireless system.
Because fixed-point hardware is installed outdoors, nature’s elements (including wildlife) can interfere. Clients who enlist Velaspan support receive remote monitoring that ensures system links remain stable and strong over time. We identify the first signs of degradation and initiate a visit before problems arise.
