Wireless Network Design
The first phases of implementing a proper and successful wireless installation starts with performing a wireless spectrum analysis, a detailed wireless site survey, and calculating the path profile. With the data collected and calculated from the wireless site survey, spectrum analysis, and wireless path engineering a properly engineered and designed network can be achieved. During this phase of implementation the appropriate wireless backhaul hardware components are chosen and the network is engineered to meet the standards of reliability, bandwidth, and performance needed. This is also where the wireless design dictates how the wireless backhaul network should be installed and performs once implemented.
Wireless backhaul networks that will perform up to the manufactures' standards throughout the years must be engineered and designed according to the manufactures' recommendations and system requirements. Too often this step is missed and not performed. Implementing a point to point wireless, point to multipoint wireless system, or wireless mesh network is not as simple of pointing antennas at each other. 90% of all customer support calls that the major manufactures receive during a wireless installation are not the result of faulty hardware issues, but from improperly engineered, designed, and installed systems.
Alpha Omega Wireless believes that the success of any wireless backhaul deployment comes from the planning stages (to include: the steps of performing proper spectrum analysis, site surveys, path calculations, engineering, and network design).
Our Wireless Network Design may include the following:
- Make recommendations for a proper fixed wireless backhaul network.
- Make recommendations for necessary wireless bridge equipment, mast/tower and appropriate hardware needed.
- Establish wireless path calculations and link budgets.
- Establish bandwidth & reliability criteria.
- Provide wireless network and path design (point to point, point to multipoint, star topology, ring topology, etc) .
- Include network redundancy and fault tolerance.
- Provide complete network documentation and Visio diagrams.
- Provide detailed build of materials (BOM) list
