Point-to-Point (PTP) microwave links are often a cost-effective method of wirelessly transporting utility backbone data traffic. They can be configured with equipment redundancy, weather hardening, or path rerouting capability to further increase reliability. Links can be FCC licensed or unlicensed and provide a wide range of capacities. The challenge lies in properly designing and implementing the system to account for potential obstructions and to ensure operation, even during extreme weather conditions.
Our team supports the evaluation, design, channel planning, procurement, deployment, and testing phases of the project. We assess current PTP backbone systems and evaluate potential microwave systems. Our designs address quality issues such as throughput, link stability, reliability, and latency. We can help educate your team on the capabilities of leading communication vendors and the cost and functionality trade-offs of different types of microwave systems so you can make the most informed decision.
