Seems like every day there’s yet another advancement in technology that improves the way we conduct business. Computers keep getting smaller, faster, and less expensive. The same is true for network technologies and implementations. Today we can replace carrier provided, short-haul leased lines with far less expensive wireless point-to-point (PTP) or point-to-multipoint (PTMP) networks. These new technologies provide fiber-like performance with the reliability and security you demand and at a fraction of the cost.
Let’s use a quick example to illustrate the advantages of PTP networks: Your business is expanding and you’ve identified a new building about 5 miles from your current corporate campus. This building needs to be added to the company network and the primary applications you’ve identified which the network must support include: voice, video, and internet access. You have a couple of options for extending your corporate network to this new building:
1. You call the local telecom carrier and order a fiber-based circuit, or
2. You install an 80 GHz gigabit wireless link between the two sites
Now let’s look at the advantages of using the PTP wireless link over the more traditional leased circuit. The PTP network:
- Eliminates recurring lease costs – and this will probably drive your ROI inside of 1 year!
- Eliminates leased line provisioning costs
- May eliminate protocol conversions requiring expensive edge devices depending on the type of circuit(s) the telecom specifies
- Installation time is reduced from months to days
- You maintain control and visibility of your network instead of having a piece of your network contracted to an external source
- Because of the PTP link performance, there are also intangible savings that can be achieved such as the ability to centralize servers and staff
Versona Systems can work with you to take advantage of these incredible cost effective technologies. Whether your task is (like our example) to implement a new extension to your network or to examine the possibility of replacing existing leased lines, let our team of experts help you every step of the way.
We are partnered with the industry’s best PTP network vendors (BridgeWave Communications, Cambium Networks, etc.) so you can be assured that only quality components are used in the design of your PTP or PTMP links. Of course, we utilize Link Budget Calculation to quantify the link’s performance while accounting for power, gains, and losses at both the transmitter and receiver ends of the link(s). This will ensure that you’re getting the most from your new PTP or PTMP network.
