ISP networks

Despite fibre’s unlimited capacity, the high cost (both in laying new fibre and leasing) and slow deployment result in the solution being unfeasible for many scenarios.

This is especially the case for growing urban and remote locations where the initial customer concentration is often too low to make the business case for fibre.

In this light, a growing number of forward thinking ISPs are deploying a mix of wireless solutions which offer the optimum balance of performance and low cost.

The rise of reliable wideband wireless solutions mean ISPs no longer have to risk a degradation of quality of service to create the cost savings needed for an attractive business case.

Solution 1: High capacity corporate ISP network

Solution 2: Residential ISP network middle mile

The wideband PMP approach

Whether acting as the middle mile, or directly connecting customer sites – wideband PMP microwave is increasingly being selected as a key central element of wireless ISP networks.

Wideband PMP’s suitability for ISP networks has grown due its high capacity, along with the cost efficiencies associated with deploying almost half the equipment of PTP technologies.

PMP’s total cost of ownership benefits, high throughput and quick time to market create an attractive business case for ISPs to invest in the technology and increase their revenues.

Competing technologies cannot compete with PMP’s business case, either due to higher total cost of ownership (in the case of PTP) or a lack of spectrum (in the case of Sub 6Ghz).

Leading the way is VectaStar – the market leading the most advanced wideband PMP solution available.
