April 12, 2010, Sacramento, CA - Alpha Omega Wireless, Inc. (http://www.aowirleless.com) announces its focus on utilizing the FCC's unlicensed wireless 24GHz frequency band for point to point wireless Ethernet bridge solutions. AO Wireless has chosen SAF Tehnika, an Eastern European manufacturer of point to point licensed microwave wireless radio systems, to resell and perform wireless installations in the United States.
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 up to 360Mbps Full Duplex (720Mbps aggregate throughput) in areas where there is a lot of wireless interference. 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 with out the need to wait for a FCC license.
There are many applications that need 100Mbps full duplex connectivity or greater. We also use millimeterwave 60GHz gigabit wireless radios for shorter applications, but not ever client needs gigabit wireless connections. The SAF Lumina allows us to perform a wireless installation of 100Mbps full duplex and can software upgrade the radios up to 360Mbps full duplex (720Mbps aggregate throughput) protecting the clients CAPEX investment."
