Licensed Microwave Point-to-Point Links

Licensed wireless microwave is the highest form of wireless link technology - its ultra-reliable, low maintenance and found in the most critical networks.

What is a licensed wireless microwave link?

Licensed microwave links offer exclusivity to frequencies in the 7GHz to 40GHz spectrum.

Also known as "fixed wireless backhaul", licensed links are more popular as a result of noise interference in the unlicensed wireless spectrum, such as 2.4Ghz or 5.8GHz.

Licensed wireless bridges 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.
