Fixed Wireless—For Network Diversity

Fixed Wireless diagram with carrier-grade Ethernet connectivity delivered by digital microwave technology

Windstream’s Fixed Wireless technology provides carrier-grade Ethernet connectivity and network diversity delivered by digital microwave technology. It’s an ideal solution for high-capacity applications in private Metro Area Networks supporting Voice, Private Line, Multi Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) and Dedicated Internet services. Fixed Wireless service is delivered with 100% access diversity from traditional local exchange carrier fiber routes, providing a high-speed access alternative for businesses needing more robust connectivity and a ‘fast-track’ installation and Internet access option.

With the migration of key business applications to the cloud, high network availability is no longer a luxury, it is a necessity. Whether supplementing existing connectivity from an alternate provider with standalone Fixed Wireless or combining it with Windstream’s fiber, there is no better way to maintain uninterrupted connectivity to business-critical applications.
