As we near the end of the year and reflecting back at 2020, it is safe to say that it has not been easy for any of us to monitor our stress levels. Aside from the ongoing pandemic, there has been one natural disaster after another. From blazing fires across our natural landscapes, snow storms and hurricanes, it all can make us feel overwhelmed. And now that our workspace blended into our living space, it has made it more difficult to separate the two. Cue the anxiety.

What are Line of Sight Considerations for Fixed Wireless?

Posted by MHO Networks on Nov 2, 2020 10:06:00 AM

It has already been established that a properly executed fixed wireless Internet network consistently provides faster and more secure data speeds, and is much easier and less expensive to install, upgrade, and operate. Moreover, their relative independence from fiber and cable networks make their design, planning, and implementation far faster and more efficient than other options. 

One of the major questions that arise when companies are considering a fixed wireless Internet connection concerns line of sight (LOS) considerations. This is likely the major obstacle that fixed wireless providers deal with when developing a network for clients. MHO discusses LOS considerations and explains how line of sight issues are handled with potential clients.

Does Weather Affect Fixed Wireless Internet?

Posted by MHO Networks on Oct 6, 2020 9:15:00 AM

When making an Internet provider decision or even a fixed wireless provider decision, a person needs to consider many factors. Line of sight, redundancy, SLAs, and of course, reliability. A key factor of reliability is ensuring your Internet connection remains stable during as many adverse conditions as possible. 

A common question is the effect of weather and rain fade. Because fixed wireless providers utilize radio waves, it might be logical to think that inclement weather such as rain or snow can affect reliability or speed. This is not always the case. It depends on the type of connection (point-to-point or point-to-multipoint: "what’s the difference?”), frequency and also if your provider is supplying something called adaptive modulation.
