How MPLS can benefit your WISP infrastructure

Posted by Daniel Noworatzky on Jun 9, 2021 10:43:00 AM

Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISPs) play an integral role in delivering internet connectivity to areas where wired connectivity is not economically viable. Rural, remote, and mountainous regions are the primary areas where WISPs thrive. In many cases, WISPs are the only option for connectivity, making them a vital component of a nation’s telecom infrastructure.

There are many technologies that help support the services provided by WISPs. One that is being leveraged more and more in recent years is Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS). This topic received considerable airtime at WISPAMERICA this year.

LTE technologies at the service of WISPs

Posted by Daniel Noworatzky on Jun 2, 2021 10:42:00 AM

Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISPs) have traditionally relied on the use of Wi-Fi technologies that leverage unlicensed frequency ranges of 2.4 and 5 GHz, along with all of the legal limitations that come with them. Recently, however, additional connectivity options have been made available and much more affordable to WISPs. Among those options is the use of Long Term Evolution (LTE) solutions. In this article, we examine how WISPs can use LTE for their networks, which was a topic of particular interest at WISPAMERICA this year.

Employing VoIP over satellite links

Posted by Daniel Noworatzky on May 6, 2020 10:50:00 AM

One of the most groundbreaking advantages of voice over IP technology is that, with the proper configurations, it is possible to install a voice endpoint anywhere in the world, as long as internet connectivity is available. But what happens if it is unavailable? For such cases, satellite access technology is quickly becoming an economically and technically viable solution.

Employing VoIP services over a satellite link can sometimes be challenging, due to the unique idiosyncrasies of the technology. In this article, we examine satellite internet links and how you can optimize VoIP implementation over satellite.

Key considerations for choosing a high-grade WAN technology

Posted by Daniel Noworatzky on Aug 7, 2019 10:53:00 AM

For those familiar with commercial-grade WAN technologies, connecting the internal network to the outside world may seem straightforward. However, large enterprises with thousands of employees and internal services whose existence depends on connectivity require more advanced WAN technologies, which can be far from simple. In this article, we’ll take a look at some of the most common high-grade WAN technologies and the characteristics of each, to help you decide which is right for you.

Know your stuff: Commercial-grade WAN technologies

Posted by Daniel Noworatzky on Jul 24, 2019 10:52:00 AM

An enterprise network is not truly functional unless it is connected to the internet. The types of technologies that can be used for network edge connectivity can broadly be separated into two groups: commercial-grade and high-grade WAN connection technologies.

The distinction between the two has to do with available speeds, reliability, services, and cost. High-grade WAN connectivity technologies include Metro Ethernet and MPLS, while commercial-grade options include cable and xDSL.

In this article, we examine the commercial-grade WAN technologies (cable and xDSL), how they function, and their most typical implementation scenarios.
