Many business Internet users get confused about wireless for business Internet access. The various types of wireless connectivity are different, and best used for specific options. When shopping for the best wireless for business, you need to understand the different types, as well as their benefits and drawbacks.
Mobile Wireless for Business Internet
Mobile wireless for business Internet connectivity relies on time-tested and immensely popular mobile technology that allows for Internet access over a cellular network. Everyone is familiar with the sight of numerous cell towers scattered about high points to handle all the voice traffic and data to and from mobile devices.
This flexible, mobile connection is a portable and convenient Internet connection. However, even with the emergence of 5G mobile technology, this is a poor option for business Internet. This technology is primarily designed for fast, simple tasks on-the-go, not sustained, high-bandwidth operations. Data caps, spotty cellular coverage, and higher costs make mobile wireless for business a poor choice for Internet and networking.
Fixed Wireless Internet for Business
Fixed Wireless Internet for business is a superior option for secure, fast, and reliable wireless connectivity. This technology uses point-to-point microwave radios to beam data streams from the provider to clients via dedicated towers, and between various client locations. Each channel is FCC-licensed for increased security and reliability.
These radio waves are unaffected by weather or clouds, not vulnerable to breakage from inadvertent digging or cable breakages, and not hampered by thousands of miles of distance, like satellite Internet that travels from ground stations to orbiting satellites and back. Plus, equipment is simple, easily installed, and utterly reliable.
How MHO Fixed Wireless Outperforms Other Wireless for Business
MHO offers superior high-speed fixed wireless for business, with dedicated Internet and networking connections. Here are just three of the many ways MHO fixed wireless outperforms other wireless for business options.
Latency is the amount of time required for data to travel between sender and receiver. Cellular towers take considerably longer to receive and transmit signals. A point-to-point (PTP) microwave radio system connects only two communication devices: a transmitter and a receiver. The entire capacity of this connection is reserved for the client’s data. Distances between transmitting and receiving stations are relatively short and are in direct line-of-sight, increasing the capacity for lighting-fast bandwidth and low latency.
Bandwidth is incredibly higher with point-to-point fixed wireless for the same reasons that provide such low latency. The direct radio link has no fluctuations or variations from weather or loss of signal. Plus, MHO offers scalable bandwidth, with requests for increases being granted quickly, often on the same day. Businesses that rely on fast, reliable and constant Internet access and data transfer will find fixed wireless to meet and exceed their needs and expectations.
Mobile networks have restrictions to the amount of data you can use, which severely restricts businesses that depend on large data transfers. This can become hugely expensive as your business usage increases. Plus, mobile companies also throttle down heavy data users once certain limits are reached, restricting their available bandwidth and effectively tying the hands of your company. MHO fixed wireless has no data caps, no bandwidth restrictions and no hidden fees for your service.
