Rise Broadband Fixed Wireless Technology
Not Your Average Internet!
Well, we can say it works partly like traditional wired internet e.g. cable and fiber. Because, the backhaul connection to the internet is established via landline hardwired networks that are usually fiber optic. It is from the backhaul tower onward that no cables are involved. Point-to-point signal transmission then occurs via the air over a terrestrial microwave platform.
At the subscriber’s end the connection originates from the Rise Broadband access point located within a few miles of the user’s location. This access point receives the signal from the backhaul tower over a wireless spectrum. And broadcasts it in the direction of the subscriber’s antenna. Rise Broadband uses focused point-to-point wireless devices to rebroadcast the signal. This is unlike the LTE signal, which is sent out in a general direction. That is why if you are in the line of sight of the Rise Broadband access point, you can enjoy a seamless service.
That does not mean Rise does not use the LTE tech. Rather, the provider prefers to use LTE in regions that are densely populated. Because this way a single tower can cover more population and deliver higher speeds. In fact in most current and future deployments, Rise Broadband is relying on LTE tech.
Fixed wireless links are cost-effective and quick to deploy compared to traditional cable and fiber connections. And, when it comes to bridging the digital divide, there is no better alternative than fixed wireless internet. Growing infrastructure of wireless networks and the improved ability to deliver fast and reliable speeds make fixed wireless internet a viable broadband solution. This is why Rise Broadband has managed to earn good repute for its quality service in underserved rural America, in particular.
