Point-to-point (PTP) wireless is recognized as an excellent high-bandwidth solution for an alternative or supplement to optical fiber.

Wicked has added wireless to its suite of Internet solutions. Fed off the same fiber optic ring as the rest of Wicked’s network, our point-to-point wireless solution can be deployed quickly, ideal for businesses in need of faster network turn-up times. With only a short hop between radio antennas, our point-to-point product is incredibly reliable and provides a secure wireless link back to fiber. Since our point-to-point solution is perfectly suitable for transmitting large amounts of sensitive data, some customers choose Wicked’s wireless product as their office’s primary Internet connection, while others rely on it for a secondary back-up connection.

Point-to-Point Wireless Networks

Point-to-point wireless networks are an alternative to ‘wired’ or ‘terrestrial’ networks, which traditionally transport data between sites using fiber optic cables in the ground.

Wicked’s WAN (Wide Area Network) architecture is comprised of both traditional fiber optics and point-to-point wireless. Wicked’s PTP wireless network connects our buildings via Gigabit Radio Antennas. These devices have been manufactured specifically to support business-class services, by creating a secure link from our core network to your building. Wicked over-engineers the system to ensure maximum reliability.

The advantage of a point-to-point wireless solution is it is a far more efficient way of adding Wicked’s lightning fast fiber Internet service to new office buildings. Installing underground fiber cables is often a very expensive endeavor, which makes it difficult for any company to deploy new fiber to a single customer or building. Additionally, Boston is one of the toughest cities in which to construct new underground facilities, given its historic and old infrastructure.

FEATURES 

BENEFITS

Connections Through the Air   

  • Diversity – great diversity from the “ground” networks
  • Reliability – engineered to support critical operations
  • Fast installation – days rather than months
  • Flexible – can be changed, upgraded or moved as needed

High Quality & Availability     

  • High quality connectivity with fiber equivalent performance characteristics across latency, jitter, packet loss and availability

Symmetrical

(upload speed = download speed)

  • Suitable for a wide range of applications including:
    • Cloud-based applications
    • Web hosting
    • Streaming media
    • VoIP
    • Teleconferencing

Bandwidth Up to 2.5 GB

  • High speed broadband suitable for business needs

What differentiates Wicked’s wireless Internet product is that it connects directly to our blazing-fast, seriously reliable fiber backbone. Many wireless companies only use wireless throughout their networks. Wicked uses a hybrid approach. This hybrid approach utilizes wireless as an extension technology or to build in diversity (Wicked Voodoo). The same service customers have come to rely on from Wicked can now be offered to more buildings in Boston at a fraction of the time!
