Are the New Tech Hubs Set Up with Networks Needed to Succeed?

Posted by MHO Networks on May 12, 2021 9:45:00 AM

As the pandemic seems to be loosening its grip on society, we have witnessed a migration of tech and businesses to different areas of the country. We don’t believe legacy tech hubs will go away, but the investment is spreading to new tech hubs that include Austin, Atlanta, Raleigh, Nashville, Miami, and Denver. 

But with rapid growth comes its own problems. Aside from infrastructure, residential inventory, and cost of living increases, many businesses need to consider technical needs and requirements.

Understanding Your Bill: Fixed Wireless Vs. Fiber Buildout

Posted by MHO Networks on May 11, 2021 9:30:00 AM

Searching for an Internet connection? Many traditional Internet providers will entice businesses with a low monthly cost for a fiber connection, but what is often overlooked is the potential buildout cost for fiber. Below is an example of what you can expect with a fiber build vs. a dedicated fixed wireless connection. 

What are the unanticipated costs of building a fiber internet connection?

What are the Unanticipated Costs of Building a Fiber Internet Connection?

Posted by MHO Networks on May 4, 2021 9:15:00 AM

Although modern businesses require high-speed Internet, the costs of building fiber Internet can be higher than anticipated. Things are never as they seem — especially when you don’t read the fine print. There are many unanticipated costs to building fiber Internet connections, and you can believe these costs will be passed on to you.

Fiber Buyer Beware!

Posted by MHO Networks on Sep 12, 2018 1:54:38 PM

Speed. Mention internet connections and speed is the first, usually the only, thing a customer asks about. And, in today’s digital climate, fiber is the de facto medium for fast internet speeds. A fiber optic internet connection is the ultimate in speed and reliability for today’s enterprise environment.

Why Point-to-Point Microwave Can Be Better Than Fiber

Posted by MHO Networks on Aug 21, 2017 5:00:00 AM
On the surface, it might sound ludicrous. We all know what kind of capability fiber optic internet access has, so how can any other technology actually be better? As it turns out, fiber has an unexpected rival in the field, and that's fixed wireless, specifically point-to-point microwave technology.

Point-to-Point Microwave  a Match for Fiber in Latency

One of fiber's great strengths is its low latency, but as it turns out, fixed wireless is a match for fiber in transmission latency thanks to a simple concept: the shortest distance between two points is a straight line. 

Since fiber is laid along the ground, it must go through the various twists and turns of connectivity. Point-to-point microwave on the other hand, is a straight shot between two points.

Fixed Wireless's Win in Efficiency

It might come as a bit of a shock, but there's a sufficient difference between the two that ZDNet wondered, not so long ago, if fiber's legacy would ultimately be as a woefully inefficient experiment in  internet service provision  gone wrong.

  • Easier to install. Consider for a moment why Google Fiber isn't running a lot of installations any more. Google Fiber got out of fiber essentially because fiber costs too much to put in. Fixed wireless, meanwhile, is significantly less expensive.
  • Faster to install. Here, easy equates to faster, as fixed wireless can be set up in days, depending on circumstances. A fiber project can take months start to finish due to the sheer amount of infrastructure involved.
  • More dependable. Fiber depends on wires, and wires can be cut, broken, or otherwise fail due to weather or other conditions. Fixed wireless has no such weaknesses, and thus is generally more dependable, improving its efficiency.

Fixed Wireless's Win in Speed

If the last part came as a shock, this part certainly will. In some cases, fiber's speed advantages can actually be matched or even beaten by fixed wireless. While gigabit fiber is starting to come increasingly into play, many businesses are looking for connections between 20 and 500 Mbps. 

Point-to-point microwave can readily match that, and in some cases, reach the gigabit range. Throw in the fact that electromagnetic waves transfer up to  50 percent faster  in the air than in cables of any sort and fixed wireless actually gets an edge in speed.

How Do I Get Started With Fixed Wireless?

If all of these points have you considering fixed wireless, then a great place to start getting access to this technology is  MHO Networks . MHO Networks offers fast installation, a guaranteed 10 business day delivery, and has the kind of experience you need to get the system installed correctly and rapidly.
