Wireless WAN

Wireless WAN stands for Wireless wide area network. The wide area network is larger than a traditional Local Area Network (LAN) which usually spans across few systems inside a building. Usually, Wireless WAN uses various telecommunication network technologies.

One of the types of Wireless WAN is Mesh Networks. In case of mesh network, various network elements, connect with each other as an independent entity. They have the ability to communicate amongst them and can also self-organise.

Using a mesh-network based Wireless LAN solution, SMOAD can provide internet access in remote locations around the world. While many SMOAD routers can be connected to provide wired/wireless access, one SMOAD router can be used as the primary device which connects to the Internet. This connection can use one or more service providers and provide a high-available access to the Internet.

Our SMOAD devices uses routing technique to pass a message from a connected device to the internet and vice versa through a series of hops from one SMOAD device to another, until the message is successfully passed. In case a device goes down then the network self-organises to reroute the traffic through a different pathway.

Fixed Wireless Access

Fixed wireless is the facet of wireless communication used to connect two fixed locations with a radio or wireless link. Usually, Fixed Wireless Access is provided between two locations to enable data communications between them. This is a cost-effective approach compared to having a wired solution (Cost increases with increase in distance).

Fixed Wireless solutions involve using directional radio antennas on either endpoint for communication. These antennas are usually certified for outdoor use and can withstand varying external factors such as temperature, wind, humidity, etc., while managing to provide necessary bandwidth across large distances.

Fixed Wireless Access usually provides point-to-point access and one location can be connected to a company’s internal network and / or to outside internet. With necessary security setup and network configuration in place, this setup would provide an extended Local Area Network (LAN) facility for sites / buildings which are further away from central buildings.

With licensed frequencies, these setups can provide a high Quality-of-Service and higher throughput as well.

Software Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN)

Traditional Wide Area Network (WAN) are used to provide connectivity between branch offices and headquarters. In the recent years, there has been a constant increase in usage of high bandwidth demanding applications. This makes the CTOs worry about Quality of Service (QoS) issues like latency, jitter, and pack loss. The solution involves constant upgrades of routers at branch offices. This is a complex, costly and time-consuming process.

SD-WAN (Software Defined Wide Area Network) solution involves using commercially available off-the-shelf components as network devices. The networking features are defined at the software level as network overlay. This simplifies the setup, management, and upgrade of network devices at the branch offices. It also enables a centralised management and enables frequent updates at lesser cost.

SMOAD (Software Defined Mobile Aggregated Data) is the next generation SD-WAN based solution. It aggregates bandwidth across mobile uplinks as network overlay with control functions. This provides redundancy, higher bandwidth, and smoother traffic flow.
