Your Simple 3 Step Process
Step 1 – Contact us
Call us and we will undertake a desktop survey to assess the viability of your project. Supply us with the first line of your address, postcode and some contact details. We will turn around your request within two working days and contact you with an estimate for the connection, and arrange an appointment for your site survey.
Step 2 – Site Survey
Wi-Fibre need to conduct a quick and straightforward assessment at the location of your premises. The site survey allows us to test how well your exact location will connect to our local network. There is a charge for this but we will refund this should the initial desk top survey prove incorrect. Because we want you to commit, the fee only covers our costs; this is not just a ploy to make money! We will then present you with a written, no obligation, quotation.
Step 3 – Installation
Our engineers will arrive at your site, install antennas, configure the network and commission your service. It’s as easily as that.
The diagram above shows the fundamentals of how Wi-Fibre wireless internet works.
The technical stuff you can leave to us, but if you’re curious, then see The Techy Bit below.
What equipment is needed?
Wi-Fibre will provide everything needed to connect you.
We install a small aerial outside your premises that receives and transmits your broadband signal. A cable from the aerial is connected to the router inside your offices and then to your network.
The broadband aerial is so unobtrusive, we had to magnify it so you could see it!
The Technical Stuff
Wi-Fibre like to make things understandable and clear – basically we replace the wires in the ground with signals in the air, much like you receive TV signals. Wi-Fibre does appreciate that people want more details, and some people want even more data. If so, please read on! There really is nothing to hide, it’s just that not everybody likes being bombarded with an avalanche of technical information in the first instance. We hope we’ve got the balance right!
A point to multipoint system uses one access point (AP) radio with up to 200 subscriber unit (SU) radios to create a multipoint network link extension. Each SU must be individually keyed to the AP before installation. After key exchanging, the installation is simple, fast, and requires very little technical skill compared to other Ethernet products on the market today.
Each AP continually monitors the SU until data is transmitted or received. When data is to be transmitted either from the AP to the SU or vice versa, the data is encrypted, transmitted, decrypted, and fed into the network.
Point to point (PtP) link performance is strongly related to radio link quality and efficiency of the access protocol that decides when and what to transmit. While the link quality is much related to physical aspects such as distance between links, allowed output power in the frequency band and level of interference from other systems, the access protocol used on top of the physical layer plays a key role in how efficiently the physical resources can be utilized.
Some access protocols are developed for end user access networks and are not suitable to provide good performance in a point to point configuration over longer distances.
Wi-Fi point to multipoint (PtMP) systems are typically used to replace fixed wired access technologies such as DSL or fibre when cost, availability or time to market are critical parameters.
Over the past years, the bandwidths offered by wireless point to multipoint systems have increased rapidly which also means that these kinds of systems often provide equal or better services with more bandwidth to the end users than what is achieved with ADSL.
