What Is WiFi?
The international standard adopted for our wireless networks is technically known as IEEE 802.11h at 5.4-5.7 Ghz, with a maximum power density at the antenna output of 1 watt; the data transmission speed can reach 100 Mbps. The wireless connection takes place via radio waves between any network device equipped with a suitable card and an access point, i.e. a point which picks up the wireless transmission and conveys it into the normal cable network. The new X-UWA adopts a 60 GHz fixed wireless technology with IEEE 802.11ad reference standard, which allows performance even 10 times higher than that of UWA Wifi technology with a maximum capacity of up to 2.5 Gbps.
How Does It Work?
Access to the ConWIFI UWA and X-UWA services takes place thanks to a special small router that connects to the Internet via an outdoor antenna, which is usually positioned on the roof of the home or company. This antenna is powered by the normal electricity network, without the need for further devices. The customer's antenna is in permanent connection with the closest Wireless Convergenze access point, which is in turn connected to the internet.
Wireless technology provides many advantages to both business and residential customers.
With our ConWIFI UWA service structural costs are greatly reduced, as it is not bound to the limitations of the traditional broadband infrastructure.
With the X-UWA service it is possible to obtain high performance even in territories not covered by FTTH technology.
Our ConWIFI UWA and X-UWA services have benefited many businesses and residential customers whose geographical areas haven’t been reached by the broadband wire grid yet.
