Wireless Broadband Networks
access to corporate information sources and web applications – such as
customer service, financial transactions, wireless e-mail, instant
messaging, mobile commerce and location-sensitive web browsing where ever
you are, requires faster wireless networks than those that are available
today. These wireless services
must be delivered faster and at prices that are not excessively higher than
prices of wireline services. Wireline
infrastructure for the Internet either exists or is being upgraded to meet
the increasing demand of users. But wireless Internet is presenting an
important challenge to network designers.
A few network infrastructure architects are convinced that the real
answer to higher speed wireless networks lies in a hybrid infrastructure.
They think that once Internet is there, there is only one problem to be
solved for wireless access – the last mile wireless access to the wireline
networks achieve this through a line of sight wireless connection between
any two points (point to point) or multiple points (multi-point).
technology is fast becoming an important element of wireless network
solution to connect distant enterprises to the Internet bypassing
traditional terrestrial connections. It
has even the potential of serving small businesses and even households.
Early adopters of wireless broadband technology have demonstrated the power,
application and versatility of mobile broadband communications. They have
proved that there is a strong business case and quick payback.
