Our Wireless Internet Service Technology

Converged Technology Networks is proud to make some of the most advanced wireless Internet technology available to residents and businesses in its service area.The technical term for our service is "Wireless Fixed Broadband Internet," which is exactly what the name implies - high speed (broadband) Internet service without wires, fixed to specific locations (i.e. not mobile). 

This system utilises a hub-and-spoke-like topology that is composed of many, small points-of-presence (MicroPOPs) connected by relay and repeater sites. This method effectively compensates for the forested and hilly topography of our region. The end-point of the system is at your residence or place of business, and consists of a small outdoor directional antenna mounted so that it faces the nearest MicroPOP. This low-voltage customer-premises system is powered over the same cable that carries the data signal (using "Power Over Ethernet") from the outdoor antenna indoors to your computer, hub, or router.

Engineered for Reliability and Performance

Our technology employs radio bands in the 5.8 GHz frequency that have been allocated by the regulator MACRA for wireless data services. By utilising different frequency bands for different legs of the network, we can maximise the data carrying capacity and performance of the system. Do not confuse our technology with basic low-cost "Wi-Fi" - the technology commonly used in homes, businesses and public locations to allow laptop computers or PDAs to be wirelessly connected to the Internet. Our equipment is very sophisticated and utilises a number of techniques that solve common wireless Internet problems such as radio spectra noise, interference from other wireless devices,and collisions of data packets caused by heavy usage from a large number of subscribers.

Our Technology

Wireless Broadband

Wireless Broadband can be defined as a microwave based technology that allows users to send and receive data between any two fixed sites. Wireless Broadband is a lot different from mobile technology but users often get confused with both. Some consumers might also be shocked to hear the fact that Wireless Broadband technology is not like a Wi-Fi service that shares bandwidth on "one-to-many" basis. So, you might be probably wondering what Wireless Broadband actually is. In simple words, Wireless Broadband is a broadband wireless internet service, which delivers dedicated and robust bandwidth.Internet service providers use this technology to offer broadband connectivity over a specified area without using any wires. 

Why Wireless Broadband is Immensely Popular
The sole purpose of introducing this innovative technology was to offer faster internet access to users and to improve the reliability of the internet service significantly. The launch of Wireless Broadband broadband service has considerably improved the internet using experience of customers and it has also enabled them to stream high definition video contents and play online games without any hassles.  

The internet service offered by telecom companies through this technology is on-demand and scalable when we consider the bandwidth usage. Additionally, there are a number of advantages for Wireless Broadband internet, which makes it much superior to the wired internet services. The numerous advantages offered by these services and its affordability have made Wireless Broadband one of the most popular choices of internet users in the country. 
Is Wireless Broadband a Suitable Alternative for Broadband?
There is no denying the fact that Wireless Broadband has evolved to become one of the best alternative broadband solutions to the conventional hard-wired networks, which often tends to get congested.The congestion in these networks can decrease the productivity of your business. This is why it is best to switch to a Wireless Broadband internet service.

Wireless Broadband systems also circumvent the congested network traffic by using a base station with a receiver that can provide a point-to-point network or a connection involving multiple locations.The installation of a Wireless Broadband infrastructure that offers a private on-demand network with larger bandwidth can be completed within a few days. 
How Wireless Broadband Works
Wireless Broadband internet service incorporates the use of radio frequencies that are delivered from a base station to a receiver. However, it is critical for the base station to have wireless capacity because the transmission of wireless data will not be possible without that. 

The technology used in Wireless Broadband internet service is almost identical to a satellite internet connection. This is because in both cases receiver is mounted on the top of a building. However,what makes both these services different is the result, that is, a Wireless Broadband service offers a private network that circumvents crowded ones to provide a high-speed internet connection for a greater period of time.  

The base station with wireless capability is responsible for receiving and broadcasting data via radio signals from the access point. The access point is usually located at a high altitude region such as the top of a building or a hill. 

The working of a Wireless Broadband system is a lot similar to that of a cable or fiber network. However, in the case of a Wireless Broadband network, providers incorporate the use of line of sight transmission to transmit signals from the node to your house. This implies that each home should have a transmitter or receiver, which looks like a flattened satellite dish pointing towards the node. As mentioned before, the node is usually located on the top of a tower. 
Is Wireless Broadband Secure?
Wireless Broadband broadband is actually a relatively new technology and it was launched only a few years ago.Consequently, only a few internet customers in the country know how this type of internet service actually works. In addition to that, many customers refrain themselves from choosing this service because they don’t know whether it is secure or not. 

As there are no wires involved in a Wireless Broadband system, businesses are a bit afraid to opt for this service to perform their day-to-day business activities. However, the reality is that Wireless Broadband broadband system is a lot reliable than conventional high-speed broadband internet connections.  

The wireless components used by all the Wireless Broadband providers in the country are not designed for open access. This implies that the providers design the network in such a way that it is capable of handling secure data transmission. Moreover, the encryption standards used by leading Wireless Broadband providers are military grade AES encryption. So,there is no place for security concerns when it comes to opting Wireless Broadband broadband service.  

In addition, Wireless Broadband providers also put in extra efforts to secure the connections from the base station to the primary network by making use of a number of security strategies. They also deploy advanced technologies to boost signal frequency during inclement weather conditions, which in turn significantly reduces packet loss during the transmission of signals. 
Pros and Cons of Wireless Broadband Technology

Pros

  • One of the major advantages of switching to a Wireless Broadband broadband network is that it is easy to install and it requires zero to minimum maintenance. In addition, as there are no wires involved with this system, you will not have to worry about the wired connection turning into a conglomerate when you expand your business. 
  • Another advantage is that adding bandwidth to a traditional wireless network is a complex process, but providers can easily accomplish it with a Wireless Broadband network. In simple words, a Wireless Broadband broadband connection is highly scalable and flexible, which allows providers to easily deal with short term increases in the network traffic. 
  •  If you are a person who uses a conventional broadband connection at home, you might be experiencing more downtime if the cables within the infrastructure need repair. However, in the case of a Wireless Broadband connection, there is always a second circuit that significantly reduces the downtime to allow customers to stay connected to the high-speed internet network. 

Cons

  • One of the major drawbacks of Wireless Broadband broadband system is that it only has a single physical access point per customer. So, if there happens to be any damages or issues to the point, customers may loss access to their internet service until the damage is fixed. 
  • Another disadvantage is that this network requires a line of sight access between the antenna of the subscriber and a ground station. This limitation may prohibit the installation of Wireless Broadband system in some locations due to hindrances.
