Fixed wireless networks are networks where the receiving nodes remain stationary. A point-to-point microwave link is a good example of a fixed wireless network. A television broadcast tower transmitting an over-the-air show to the television set in your living room is a good example of a point-to-multipoint fixed wireless network.
Fixed wireless networks work because the broadcast transmission and the receiving node are programmed to share communications. In the example of the television broadcast, the communication is one way, from the tower to the set. In the microwave link, the communications is two-way, where both the broadcast node and the remote can each transmit and receive data and information.
Fixed wireless networks can deliver voice, video, or data communications for your business across a specific geography in real-time at low-cost.
