Alpha Omega Wireless Uses 24GHz SAF Lumina Wireless at SXSW

Posted on Wed, Mar 14, 2012

Alpha Omega Wireless is providing carrier grade wireless backhaul at the 2012 SXSW event in Austin Texas. This backhaul is allowing SXSW to provide much needed bandwidth and internet gateway access to its major venues. For this solution Alpha Omega Wireless (“AO Wireless”) is utilizing the FCC's unlicensed wireless 24GHz frequency band for point to point wireless Ethernet bridge solutions. AO Wireless has chosen to use the SAF CFIP Lumina radio platform by SAF Tehnika, an Eastern European manufacture of point to point licensed microwave wireless radio systems.

SAF Lumina 24GHz SXSW

President Joe Wargo says, "The 24GHz wireless spectrum band is an unlicensed frequency that is heavily underutilized in the United States. Like licensed microwave, a point to point wireless Ethernet bridge in the 24GHz unlicensed wireless band provides carrier grade wireless backhaul. The 24GHz wireless backhaul is ideal for point to point wireless bridges up to 2+ miles. With the SAF Tehnika CFIP Lumnia we can provide carrier / enterprise grade connectivity up to 366Mbps Full Duplex (732Mbps aggregate throughput) in areas where there is a lot of wireless interference. SAF provides the best in breed quality radio systems. When dealing with such a mission critical network we trust only the best microwave radio products available.

The unlicensed wireless 5.8GHz band is becoming heavily saturated and it's becoming difficult to deploy wireless Ethernet bridge links in many areas. Because the 24GHz band is unlicensed we can deploy wireless backhaul links in a day without the need to wait for a FCC license.”

Alpha Omega Wireless Provides Wireless Backhaul at SXSW

Posted on Tue, Mar 13, 2012

Austin, TX - March 13th, 2012

Alpha Omega Wireless, Inc., headquartered in Austin Texas, was hired for the second year in a row by SXSW to provide wireless Ethernet backhaul and outdoor Wi-Fi to multiple venues around Austin for the 26th Annual SXSW Film, Interactive, and Music Festival.

SXSW2012

President Joe Wargo says, "We were excited to be asked by SXSW to return to help them provide critical bandwidth to their major venues and some outdoor Wi-Fi at select special events. SXSW really goes out of their way to make the entire SXSW Festival an amazing event for all who attend. Over the years they have seen a huge increase in demand for internet bandwidth by its participants. Most everyone is carrying an IP enabled wireless device. SXSW just couldn't rely on the carriers to provide the bandwidth that's being demanded.

We were able to deploy carrier grade, full duplex, point to point microwave links to several large venues allowing SXSW to provide bandwidth where they needed it most. For this project we used a combination of high capacity radio systems like SAF 24GHz Lumina radios and 70GHz Siklu radios. The advantage of these wireless frequency platforms was to help avoid interference. Plus they could be deployed immediately under FCC regulations.

This year we also expanded multiple point to multipoint wireless backhaul to concert venues and outdoor event locations. Other major accomplishments this year was providing high speed Wi-Fi, to some high profile, outdoor party events and outdoor meeting events. For the outdoor Wi-Fi applications we used Xirrus Wi-Fi array systems in order to handle the high density of Wi-Fi users and devices.
