Microwave radio is a fixed wireless broadband connection delivered by a high-capacity microwave radio link, which does not require any other infrastructure other than power, and a clear line-of-site. This technology can rival the reliability of fibre optic networks connections. It is a proven technology used all over the world by telco carriers, emergency and municipal services where high capacity, security and reliability are paramount.

Frequently Asked Questions
Service requires an antenna or dish to be fitted externally on the customer’s premises. A premises site survey is required to ensure line-of-sight to the remote base station.
A microwave link is a permanent connection between two sites. It is a tried and tested and most importantly, cost-effective alternative to leased line technology. It delivers both data and voice traffic over long distances to remote locations and rural areas, offering reliable microwave broadband.
Microwave Wireless is noted for its low latency and reliability. The higher frequencies of microwave enables high information-carrying capacity that rivals fibre.
Latency measures the time data takes to travel on a connection, which can severely impact business productivity. Low latency is essential for VOIP systems, financial trading, and where a rapid response is required.
Where a licence is required, a specific spectrum is used to ensure reliability and availability.
In the absence of fibre broadband, or where copper service is not suitable, Wireless provides a stable high-speed communication solution for remote or hard-to-service locations.
Cabled solutions can have installation issues which can add significant delays and cost. A microwave link is straightforward to install, requiring a discreet antenna that avoids planning restrictions. Turnkey installation is normally carried out within a few days, as opposed to fibre broadband connections, which can span several weeks.
