Municipal Wireless Mesh Networks
Municipalities and townships across Ontario are planning to and already
introducing wireless mesh networks across their regions as a means of providing
enhanced high speed online services to the community. Service providers
deploying these networks have several technology options for every part
of their network, from access to backhaul, and face numerous challenges
in engineering a network that provides the best performance, highest
availability, widest coverage, and lowest cost. Specifically, the cost
of the backhaul network presents a significant portion of the network deployment
and recurring cost.
SkyNet solutions provide the highest capacity and lowest total cost of
ownership in the market for backhauling the aggregate capacity through
the core municipal mesh network. Whether the access method is Wi-Fi based,
WiMAX, or proprietary, SkyNet provides backhaul connectivity between mesh
access points and point-to-multipoint distribution nodes to the wireline
network core wherever needed.
Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISP) and
alternative access carriers such as Metro Ethernet service providers face
increasing competition and need for differentiation in the market. Residential
and corporate Internet access customers continue to demand lower access
costs, greater speeds, and more features.
As service providers broaden their coverage and deploy higher capacity
distribution and access wireless networks, such as WiMAX and Wi-Fi, the
wireless backbone must also be engineered and upgraded to prevent infrastructure
bottlenecks. Wireless backhaul solutions from SkyNet provide the highest
capacity and lowest total cost of ownership in the market for these applications.
SkyNet provides high capacity IP wireless backhaul for municipal Wi-Fi,
WiMAX, or any internet access network.
Own and control the infrastructure
Wireless backhaul solutions from SkyNet eliminate the reliance on leased line
facilities and provide full ownership and control of the network backhaul infrastructure
without recurring costs or support dependencies.
Lowest total cost of ownership
SkyNet provides the most cost effective backhaul solution compared to leased
line, fibre, and even existing wireless alternatives, resulting in the lowest
cost per megabit-mile in the industry. There are no recurring costs, installation
is simple, and the upfront capital investment rivals any alternative on the
