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.

Posted by MHO Networks on Jun 17, 2020 9:30:00 AM

COVID-19 has caused havoc and unprecedented changes to the global economy as many businesses were forced to shut down in an effort to curb the spread of the virus. Other companies remained operational, but with vastly different and sometimes frantic changes as to how they conducted business. 

Now that areas are beginning to reopen in earnest, some from being completely closed and some from partial to full-bore operations, choosing the right network provider is a vital consideration.

Major IT Considerations During a Health Crisis

Posted by MHO Networks on Mar 20, 2020 9:30:00 AM

As we are already witnessing, a major national crisis can place new and even unforeseen demands on a range of industries. The COVID-19 pandemic is certainly pushing governments and businesses to think outside the box. While many businesses are closed to prevent social interaction that can spread the virus, some businesses MUST still operate on location. 

They don’t have the ability to work remotely. In many cases, these include logistics, healthcare, first responders, utilities, construction, oil and gas, and many more. Moreover, hospitals across the nation are also opening mobile testing centers in large commercial venues to speed testing. These remote locations present the need for a reliable and secure Internet connection and IT solution. 

As part of an overall continuity plan, here are key IT considerations in a health crisis.

The new 5th generation of wireless technology is here! At least one major carrier is already advertising nationwide 5G coverage (whether it is actually available nationwide or not is still in question), and trumpeting the incredibly high speeds that are now available. Another touted its 5G coverage during the Super Bowl, tugging at hearts by emphasizing first responders using 5G to save lives. But its service is only available in parts of 31 cities, and only for customers who have purchased a 5G-compatible phone.
