When a business expands into new premises its often impractical to link using a private wire because of distance or terrain.
CAT5 will only operate over 305m.
Often it looks like each building would need its own internet line costing thousands a year however a dedicated wireless link can be used providing the two buildings are in direct uninterrupted line of site.
The distance doesn’t really matter providing its less than about 10 miles in practice. Longer links are doable but the terrain between each needs checking.
Andisa supply Mikrotik Wireless links are our engineers are all fully trained and certified to set these up.
Our experience installing links across valleys in Nepal. To link remote schools to the internet has made us experts in the field.
The Mikrotik SXT range are small (about 6 inch across) and mount on a TV antenna pole. They operate in the unlicensed 2.4 and 5Ghz ranges so once installed there is no ongoing cost.
They can be managed remotely so we can always make sure your link is fully functional.
More importantly the signals have built in security beyond the standard 802.11 protocols that prevent management changes without a special unique security code.
Its possible to connect two links via routers inside your buildings to provide a resilient link, protecting from mobile blockages such as high level wagons or cranes.
A pair of 5Ghz SXT devices will cost less than £200 and programming will take less than an hour!
We can supply pre programmed devices for your own engineers to install.
