What is a unlicensed microwave link?

Unlicensed and light licence wireless links is the most cost effective of all links and can be deployed in a matter of days. Currently within the UK there are a few unlicensed WiFi frequencies that are used for point to point links and a few light licensed frequencies that provide interference free operation.

What is a light licensed microwave link?

A Light License is where the licensee pays a small licence fee to register his/her radio link with OFCOM.

OFCOM use the licence to inform other potential users of the spectrum that there is already a radio link or links in the area when they register their own link prior to deployment. This information is also used to resolve disputes should interference arise.

Frequencies used

  • Licence free spectrums are the 5Ghz, 24Ghz, and 60Ghz frequencies
  • Light licence spectrums operate in the 64-66GHz and 70/80GHz

Why consider unlicensed or light license links?

  • Low density areas not suffering from RF interference
  • Budget constraints
  • Non-critical data transmission

When are licensed links mostly used?

  • Organisations looking to create a LAN across multiple buildings on the same site
  • Organisations looking to reduce the cost of existing leased lines
  • In low density areas where RF interference is low or free

When to consider opting for a licenced over unlicensed?

  • High density areas suffering from RF interference
  • Mission-critical data transmission
