What is the Best Way to Configure your Multi-Office Network?

Posted by MHO Networks on May 10, 2022 8:38:00 AM

Connecting multiple offices to a secure, reliable network can be complicated. While many companies need to connect buildings in close proximity, others may need to unify hub offices, branches and a large contingent of remote and hybrid workers simultaneously. 

Ways of working have changed drastically over the past few years  - employees are more remote than ever before, and the large corporate headquarters of yesteryear is no longer the norm for doing business. It is far more common for employees to now do hotdesking or shared desk space. Along with this evolution, hybrid and remote working has created added security and collaboration challenges.

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.
