Licensed Microwave Links
What is a licensed microwave link?
Licensed microwave links offer exclusivity to frequencies in the 7GHz to 40GHz spectrum.
Also known as "fixed wireless backhaul", licensed links are becoming more popular as a result of noise interference in the unlicensed wireless spectrum, such as 2.4Ghz or 5.8GHz.
Licensed microwave wireless bridge radios provide security from the risk of wireless interference from other outdoor radio frequency systems. This is the major reason to opt for a licenced unit where interference can degrade an unlicensed outdoor wireless bridge system’s performance and in some cases even prevent the system from functioning at all.
Why consider microwave links?
Licensed microwave link systems are engineered to provide predictable gigabit speeds with reliability of 99.999% uptime with no interference. We handle licence requests on a daily basis and take care of the paper work for acquiring the licences for our customers. The costs of licences vary.
When are licensed links mostly used?
- Organisations looking to create a long distance LAN connections
- Organisations looking to reduce the cost of existing leased lines
- In high density areas suffering from RF interference
- Mission critical data requiring 99.999% uptime
- Telecommunications, campus networks, IP, PDH and SDH networks, intranets and LAN connections
When to consider opting for an unlicensed over licenced
- Low density areas not suffering from RF interference
- Budget constraints
- Non-critical data transmission
