Applications

The typical applications for WiBAS™ range from demanding backhaul to cost-effective broadband access:

Mobile Backhauling (2G to LTE)

WiBAS™ ideally fits the backhauling needs of mobile operators for the following reasons:

  • Less equipment needed - a single Base Station can serve multiple Terminals.
  • CapEx / OpEx efficient - less equipment for less acquisition and running costs.
  • Environmentally & society friendly - discrete equipment of low power consumption.
  • Expandable & scalable solution - expansion of the network requires only the addition of Terminals.
  • Multi-purpose - same equipment can serve both backhaul applications and corporate customers.
  • Robust - reduced points of failure with carrier-grade protection capabilities.
Broadband Access Networking

WiBAS™ is the perfect wireless broadband access solution for ISPs and mobile / fixed operators, also enabling the delivery of modern IP connectivity services to corporate customers, inclusive of:

  • Enterprise customers with widely-spread premises.
  • Corporate customers in industrial estates.
  • Educational institutions, campuses and communities in dense areas.
  • Private networks (primary or backup).
  • Banks (ATMs, branches and offices).
  • Governmental / organizational bodies in urban areas.
  • Utilities / public companies with data communication needs.
  • Several IP applications (cameras, telemetry, etc.).
  • Areas lacking infrastructure and other alternatives.

For all the aforementioned applications, WiBAS™ offers a series of significant benefits:

  • Rapid deployment - just adding Terminals at the customer premises.
  • Easy installation - compact and plug n' play equipment.
  • Secure - private networking using encryption.
  • Optimum spectrum utilization taking advantage of statistical gains and hitless adaptive modulation mechanisms.
