Industry-Leading Solutions for the Unique Challenges of Fixed Wireless Internet Services Providers
Fixed wireless internet service providers (WISPs) are the fastest-growing sector of the broadband industry, characterized by cost-effective deployments, rapid technology innovation, and continuously evolving transmission models. WISPs offer a relatively inexpensive (as opposed to laying new cable) way for individual entrepreneurs, municipalities, co-ops or other organizations to build better Internet service for their communities. Often serving the hardest to reach, unserved rural areas, as well as bringing affordable alternatives to underserved urban customers, WISPs work hard to close the digital divide. Often mounting access points to elevate points in the region to provide backhaul capabilities, WISPs have a unique set of challenges that Ventev provides solutions for.
The terrain, weather, business objectives, and crime can make it difficult to deploy an effective network. However, Ventev works hard to understand the challenges and requirements of providing a robust network for WISP customers. Ventev offers industry-leading solutions to power, protect, and connect wireless networks in outdoor environments, whether it’s power and connectivity or aesthetics and security.
Industry-leading Solutions for Challenges
Deploying outdoors can be expensive and time-consuming
Understanding all the requirements of deploying outdoors can be challenging. From the terrain and weather to crime and aesthetics, network engineers must consider a multitude of accessories to ensure that the network is operational, efficient, and protected.
With antennas that work with all major access points and radio manufacturers, as well as pre-configured NEMA enclosures, Ventev outdoor solutions are designed to simplify network deployments and reduce operational costs.
FAST FOOD CHAIN TAKES INDOOR WI-FI OUTDOORS IN RESPONSE TO COVID-19 PANDEMIC
Restaurants across the U.S. have modified their business operations to keep their diners and employees safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to taking indoor precautions, an 800-store fast food chain based in Texas also wanted to extend their Wi-Fi networks outside to their parking lots to ensure customers could connect to the Wi-Fi while in their cars for ordering and entertainment.Case Study
Powering Outdoor Networks
Deploying a network can be very challenging if power is intermittent or not accessible - rural environments, areas where power is intermittent, or areas susceptible to natural disasters such as hurricanes and wildfires. Outdoor network continuity requires a solid power infrastructure to be successful.
Ventev's power solutions can provide mains and backup power in any environment. Our turnkey, radio/switch agnostic solutions make it easy to extend the network outside in almost any environment.
