Did You Know - Managed Network Services

More businesses today are taking advantage of wireless broadband, either as a back-up connection, to run particular applications or even as their primary connection.

While wireless broadband still requires a data plan assigned to a SIM card and is used in a traditional machine-to-machine device, plans are purchased based on connection speed and NOT on the amount of data used. Therefore, there are never any overage charges.
Why No Overages?  
The fact that there are no overage charges is a combination of the potential throttling when meeting a usage threshold, as well as being a unique and completely different approach to standard wireless 4G (such as your cell phone).
With standard 4G, you are subscribing to the overall network and obtaining the best speeds available in that given area. With wireless broadband, you are subscribing to best effort bandwidth up to the procured amount (such as 12M x 12M or 50M x 50M).
Besides the absence of overages, predictability into monthly service cost is another appeal to this type of service.
Additional Benefits
Other benefits of wireless broadband include:
  • Fast, highly reliable connections for business-critical applications
  • Network availability in the event of congestion or failure
  • A pathway to 5G without replacing all hardware
  • A good remote or temporary solution when needing connectivity while awaiting a cable or fiber buildout
Wireless Broadband would be a great fit for sites without any other viable wireline alternative due to excessive construction costs, pricing limitations on Dedicated Internet Access (DIA)/HiCap circuits, or current 4G primary sites that are using excessive data resulting in impactful overage charges.
