Fixed Wireless

What is OMNIPOINT FIXED WIRELESS ?

WHAT FIXED WIRELESS LOOKS LIKE

Fixed wireless broadband is a method of delivering Internet connection to consumers over the airwaves.

Similar to DSL and cable Internet, fixed wireless is a “last mile” technology that bridges the relatively short gap between the mainstream Internet “backbone” and consumer residences.

While DSL and cable bridge this gap using wired phone and television connections, Omnipoint  fixed wireless accomplishes the same outcome by broadcasting the connection via radio waves from an access point (usually mounted on a tower) to reception dishes at consumer residences.

MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT FIXED WIRELESS

Fixed wireless is not satellite

FIXED WIRELESS IS NOT SATELLITE

While fixed wireless broadcasts from terrestrial towers, satellite Internet broadcasts from earth orbit. Satellite's “bird’s eye view” translates to wide coverage, but the extra distance creates higher latency.

Fixed wireless is not mobile

FIXED WIRELESS IS NOT MOBILE

Mobile coverage operates like a giant Wi-Fi bubble — coverage is broadcast from towers, and any device within range can connect. Fixed wireless operates more like an invisible wire connecting two locations — coverage is broadcast from towers in a straight line to a specific customer.

Fixed wireless is not Wi-Fi

FIXED WIRELESS IS NOT WI-FI

Fixed wireless provides a direct point-to-point connection, requiring line-of-sight between the access point and reception device. Unlike Wi-Fi, fixed wireless cannot pass through or around minor barriers.
