The most common wireless backhaul, known as a wireless Ethernet bridge, operate in the unlicensed wireless (license-exempt) 900MHz (902-928), 2.4GHz, 5.3GHz, 5.4GHz, 5.8GHz, 24GHz, and 60GHz frequencies of the RF spectrum. These radio platforms are exempt from FCC licensing requirements. This means the system operator does not have to apply for and purchase a fixed microwave link license from the FCC. These systems, although quick to deploy, do not promise exclusive use of the band and are susceptible to potential interference.
Unlicensed wireless backhaul platforms can go distances up to 50+ miles and provide data rates of 10Mbps to 300Mbps aggregate throughput. These systems can be deployed in outdoor wireless backhaul applications such as: point to point wireless (“PtP”), point to multipoint wireless (“PtMP”), and wireless mesh configurations. Unlicensed wireless bands are also used for many indoor wireless communications systems (such as Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g/a/n), cordless phones, monitors, RFID, handhelds, etc.) and are excellent for wireless video surveillance IP camera networks.
To add capacity to any network, wireless backhaul technology using unlicensed wireless Ethernet bridge radios provides an inherently flexible and scalable alternative to fiber or leased lines. Most systems can be installed in a day or two. Best of all, unlicensed wireless technology has a typical payback (ROI) of less than 3 months
