When budgets do not allow for the installation of traditional cabling networks, there is an alternative, lower-cost solution. Point-to-point wireless connectivity is a reliable alternative to fibre-leased lines. It bridges the gap between two locations, through the use of Freespace optics and radio links. While Remark would not recommend using a business Wi-Fi connection as the primary system for your organisation (due to potential performance dips), it can be an option if you have cabling issues and lower-bandwidth demands. A business Wi-Fi installation is cost effective and can improve overall connectivity. Businesses will spend thousands a year on renting fibre leased lines – a cost which could be mitigated with wireless point-to-point. Beyond the initial installation fees, the only on-going costs would be for support and maintenance. This could potentially represent a significant saving for your business and may be worth further exploration.
The deployment of wireless connectivity systems is fast and effective with a lead time of a matter of weeks, as opposed to months with traditional cabling. Systems are also scalable and can expand alongside your business by simply integrating with the existing network. Most importantly, this connectivity solution is secure with safeguards in place to protect confidential business information.
