Rapidly expand your network
connectivity for a fraction of the cost.
The next-generation wireless technologies are built to support more secure, faster, lower latency wireless networks from traditional cell phone networks to wireless data networks to Fixed Wireless providers. These technologies will vastly change the face of networking. Because many of these technologies do not require physical cables to connect, this enables rapid expansion of network connectivity without much of the costs of physically running wiring.
For many organizations, slow network connectivity has caused some problems. Have you experienced these?

• Low-band spectrum can also be described as sub 1GHz spectrum. It's the primary band used by carriers in the U.S. for LTE, and bandwidth is nearly depleted. While low-band spectrum offers excellent coverage area and wall penetration, there is a big drawback: Peak data speeds will top out around 100Mbps.
• Mid-band spectrum provides faster speeds and lower latency than low-band. It does, however, fail to penetrate buildings as effectively as low-band spectrum. Expect peak speeds up to 1Gbps on mid-band spectrum.
• High-band spectrum is what delivers the highest performance for 5G, but with major weaknesses. It is often referred to as mmWave. High-band spectrum can offer peak speeds up to 10Gbps and has extremely low latency. The main drawback of high-band is that it has low coverage area, and building penetration is poor.
5G – The next generation of connectivity for wireless networks. 5G encompasses multiple wireless spectrums that can work at speeds up to 10Gbps. There are essentially 3 bands of 5G spectrum:
150 Mhz of spectrum that was formerly used for government usage that has been released for public use. Like 5G, there is lower latency and higher speeds and is more secure than traditional wireless spectrum. There is a licensed and unlicensed tier of this service. The unlicensed tier provides an economical way to create private wireless networks like traditional WIFI networks.

A Private LTE network leverages localized micro towers and small
cells — conceptually like Wi-Fi access points — to provide coverage and connectivity. It functions much like a scaled-down version of a public cellular network. Private LTE can be based on licensed, unlicensed, or shared spectrum. Private LTE provides benefits ranging from fixed-costs and enhanced data security to improved network performance, making Private LTE the best available wide-area LAN option for a variety of deployments.
Also known as 802.11ax, the latest generation and standard for wireless internet replaces the 802.11ac, or Wi-Fi 5, standard. Wi-Fi 6 combines high-speed Gigabit Ethernet wireless with the reliability of licensed radio. This is relatively new but will grow as access points will be rolling out in enterprises.
A small cell installation consists of small radio equipment and antennas placed on structures such as streetlights, the sides of buildings, or poles. They are about the size of a pizza box or backpack and are essential for transmitting data to and from a wireless device.
Small cells look entirely different than the wireless infrastructure we have seen in the past. We are used to macro cells—those tall cell towers you see along highways and city rooftops. Small cells are, well, smaller. They are lower-power cell sites that are installed every few blocks instead of miles apart.
A distributed antenna system is a network of antennas, connected to a common source, spread throughout a building or an area to improve network performance. A Distributed Antenna System can be designed for use indoors or outdoors and can be used to provide wireless coverage in hotels, subways, airports, hospitals, businesses, roadway tunnels, etc. The wireless services typically provided by a DAS include PCS, cellular, Wi-Fi, police, fire, and emergency services.
Many customers that are looking to institute SDWAN are looking for options for secondary and Tertiary Circuits to have a bulletproof environment. One of the reasons behind looking at multiple circuits is that SDWAN can provide resiliency to their environment at a fraction of traditional MPLS networks' cost.
Many enterprises look at a combination of Broadband and DIA circuits to accomplish this. However, one of the main problems they experience is the connections for these services typically come in from the same entry point into the building or even on the same wire. If there is a problem with the connections, then potentially all the connections could experience issues. This is where 4G/5G networks come in. These networks offer connectivity virtually anywhere with no physical cabling. They can provide backup connectivity for the following use cases.
• Diverse entry into a site
• Low bandwidth applications like IoT
• Short-term needs (Construction Sites)
• Hard to reach places
• Services that are needed quickly
• Mobile applications like Food Trucks or mobile services.
• High cost for bringing in a fiber or broadband connection
Mobile Device Management and Expense Management are two areas the allow a customer to offload and secure their mobile assets. The MDM provider can provide inventory information about the devices and plans a customer has, as well as some of the following items:
• Project Management
• Enrollment & Kitting Vendor
• Carrier Services
• Inventory Management
• MDM Support Desk
• Email Setup and Management
• Data Pooling
Mobile Device Management (MDM)
Providers can evaluate spend for the customers and, in many cases, save the customer money by reducing spending.
Also, they save the customer time and money by automating ordering and provisioning processes, proactively managing carriers, performing day-to-day management of the device, and providing detailed reporting & analytics of the products. They also help by:
• Optimizing cell plans based on the type of devices
• Getting rid of unused or underutilized plans
• Pooling data to eliminate overages and roaming charges
• Finding unknown rate plans that can save money
These same carriers can also provide lifecycle management services that track the assets from acquisition to termination, including data wipe, limiting applications on the devices, etc.
