Point to point wireless network links connect two locations together through line of sight (LOS), operating in unlicensed/licensed radio frequencies or through free space optics with speeds available between 100 Mbps to 10Gbps.
iWire365 instals wireless point to point bridging solutions from 100mbps to 10Gbps full duplex, delivering wireless connectivity with unparalleled performance and reliability.
Typical Applications :
- Building to building connectivity
- Leased line replacement
- Fiber line replacement
- Wireless failover

- Operating in line of sight situations
- Fast lead times or temporary installations
- Faster and cheaper leased line or fiber replacement
Licensed microwave links offer exclusivity to frequencies in the 7GHz to 40GHz spectrum.
Licensed microwave links, also known as fixed wireless backhaul, is becoming more popular as a result of noise interference in unlicensed wireless spectrum, such as: 5.8GHz wireless Ethernet bridge systems. Licensed microwave wireless bridge radios provide security from the risk of wireless interference from other outdoor wireless bridge systems. Interference can degrade an outdoor wireless bridge system’s performance and in some cases even prevent the system from functioning at all. Licensed microwave link systems can be engineered to provide predictable reliability of 99.999% uptime.
When are licensed links mostly used?
- Companies in need of a long distance LAN connections
- Companies focused on cost reduction of existing leased lines
- In high density areas polluted with high RF interference
- Mission critical data requiring 99.999% uptime
- Telecommunications, campus networks, IP, PDH and SDH networks, intranets and LAN connections
The most common wireless backhaul, known as a wireless Ethernet bridge, operate in the unlicensed wireless (license-exempt) 900MHz (902-928), 2.4GHz, 5.3GHz, 5.4GHz, 5.8GHz, 24GHz, and 60GHz frequencies of the RF spectrum. These radio platforms are exempt from FCC licensing requirements. This means the system operator does not have to apply for and purchase a fixed microwave link license from the FCC. These systems, although quick to deploy, do not promise exclusive use of the band and are susceptible to potential interference.
Unlicensed wireless backhaul platforms can go distances up to 50+ miles and provide data rates of 10Mbps to 300Mbps aggregate throughput. These systems can be deployed in outdoor wireless backhaul applications such as: point to point wireless (“PtP”), point to multipoint wireless (“PtMP”), and wireless mesh configurations. Unlicensed wireless bands are also used for many indoor wireless communications systems (such as Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g/a/n), cordless phones, monitors, RFID, handhelds, etc.) and are excellent for wireless video surveillance IP camera networks.
Point-to-multipoint (PMP) communication refers to communication that is accomplished through a distinct and specific form of one-to-many connections, offering several paths from one single location to various locations. Point-to-multipoint is generally abbreviated as PTMP, P2MP or PMP. PMP communication is commonly used in telecommunications.
Point to Multi Point wireless networks, also used for outdoor hotspots, interconnect multiple locations to central access points through line of sight and non line of sight (nLOS). They can operate in both the unlicensed and licensed frequencies bands with speeds up to 1Gbps. A point to multi point wireless network can be a highly cost effective replacement for leased lines.
PMP is usually used for establishing private enterprise connectivity to offices in remote locations, long-range wireless backhaul solutions for various sites, and last-mile broadband access. As such, it is widely used in IP telephony and wireless Internet by means of gigahertz radio frequencies. These PMP networks are employed in distribution amenities, huge corporate campuses, school districts, public safety applications, etc.
Typical Point to Multi Point applications are:
- Connecting multiple buildings
- CCTV solutions
- Lease line replacement
- Fiber replacement
- Outdoor WiFi
Nowadays, mobile communications have become a part of life and they are no longer looked upon as a luxury. Whether it is two-way radio, push to talk device, PDA or the popular handheld cellular phones, smartphones or tablets, they are not just a means of personal communication. They are considered a necessity for business and maintaining public safety.
People are using 4G networks through their mobile devices to log on to the internet and connect to critical business networks. As Homeland Security is one of the major government initiatives, it is mandatory for all public facilities (public transportation areas, malls, arenas, hospitals and government buildings, etc.) to make two-way communication available. In the private sector, businesses are expected to provide cellular signal for businesses in their day-to-day operations.
The problem both private and public players face is that mobile providers are unable to expand their coverage and control their signal loss. In particular, the loss experienced inside buildings and structures is a cause for concern. The materials used in construction, such as concrete, steel, insulation, noise control windows, etc. obstructs RF signals significantly.
The result is that there is little to no signal inside a building while outside, the full signal can be received without interruptions. Even in buildings that do not completely block out the signals, there are some dead zones.
iWire365 design, installation and maintenance solutions offer time savings and cost effective benefits to all your automation needs.
Automation is important. Gathering data and utilizing that data to make your company run smoother and more efficiently offers big benefits. However, designing and implementing automation systems can be complicated and time consuming.
SCADA / telemetry wireless backhaul systems are used to create connectivity with SCADA / telemetry networks that control various components (e.g. sensors, metering devices, PLC’s, and a host computer). SCADA networks can use devices that utilize RS-232 serial or Ethernet IP. The majority of SCADA systems are set up in a “polling architecture” and require low throughput speeds.
SCADA / telemetry radios can be in licensed microwave wireless (UHF, VHF, 900 MHz MAS, and with licensed WiMax 2.5GHz or with 700MHz LTE) or unlicensed wireless (900 MHz, WiMax, or 5.8GHz point to multipoint wireless backhaul) spectrums. With the growth of automated IP based systems older serial systems are now being migrated to Ethernet IP based networks. There are many advantages to utilizing IP based architecture such as; migration in to data network monitoring systems, remote access, convergence of other IP based devices, POE, centralization, etc.
iWire365 has the technical and engineering resources to fulfill your automation needs. From full turnkey design and implementation project to maintenance and operation assistance, we can fulfill whatever need you have. Let iWire365 handle the burden of installing and maintaining your automation system.
Wireless backhaul, also known as fixed wireless Ethernet bridges, point to point wireless (“ptp wireless”), wireless mesh, WiMax backhaul, LTE wireless, and point to multipoint wireless, (both licensed microwave links and unlicensed wireless bridges) can extend broadband connectivity further and faster than with structured cabling or fiber. Wireless backhaul also can be deployed to expand the last mile wireless connectivity for a fraction of the cost.
In both urban and rural areas where there is either no existing cable infrastructure or the existing cable infrastructure is outdated, the implementation of a wireless Ethernet bridge proves to be more flexible and scalable than traditional methods. Wireless backhaul equipment costs are lower (even with ptp wireless such as licensed microwave links), easier and quicker to repair, quicker to upgrade, and costs less to maintain.
Provision of wireless backhaul services represents a significant opportunity for operators. A deep understanding of wireless equipment, interface specifications and historical deployment practices greatly aids the proper choice and design of networks. A hybrid network that supports a fusion of TDM, SONET and Ethernet services allows a completely flexible infra that can easily evolve with the network changes from all wireless customer types.
