Design Your Connectivity

By Kurt Garrison   November 1, 2013

Because wireless broadband is flexible, networks can be tailored to meet the exact requirements of the purpose. As needs change, the network can be easily reconfigured and expanded to meet connectivity demands. All networks have the common aspects of backhauling connectivity to an area, and then distributing that broadband over a number of locations in an access network. It is this flexibility and simplicity that makes designing and building a network as compelling as playing with Lego blocks: you build the network that you imagine, and then you can modify it as you imagine more.

Dr. Mahabir Pun imagined a network and built Nepal Wireless. No conventional service provider would build out to serve the small population in this remote area. In 2002, he started building a network in the most remote villages in the Himalayan region using Cambium Networks Point-to-Point (PTP) equipment for backhaul and Point-to-Multipoint (PMP) and ePMP solutions for access. Broadband connectivity provided an immediate and dramatic improvement in education, health care, safety and commerce. His network has grown organically, and you can read his story in this case study.

While very extreme, his story is fundamentally no different from the challenges and opportunities that every organization faces: the ability to do more if connectivity was available. By using the building blocks of PTP backhaul and PMP access, anything is within reach.
