Does WIDOX 3.1 technology support voice, data, and video across all frequencies simultaneously?
How far does the WIDOX 3.1 signal reach in rural and/or remote areas?
Up to 32 km/20 miles radius, or 3,200 square km/1,250 square miles with 100% downstream data rate to the edge of the service area.
Is WiDOX 3.1 full duplex or half-duplex?
WIDOX 3.1 offers full duplex. This allows simultaneous transmission and reception and consistent high data rate to the edge of the service area and distance subscribers.
Can we bond multiple channels together to get higher speed?
|Downstream||It is possible to bond a maximum of 8 channels at a speed of >216 Mbps (>27×8)|
|Upstream||It is possible to bond 4 channels for an aggregate data throughput of >56 Mbps (>14×4) aggregate|
How much UHF spectrum do we need to service our subscribers on WiDox 3.1?
|Number of Subscribers||MHz with a minimum separation of18 MHz between transmit and receive frequencies|
|50 to 150||2×6 MHz|
|>9,000||>500 MHz (within ultra high frequency from 470 MHZ to 1,250 MHz)|
Note: The above applies in conditions where 5 megabit down and 1 Mbps down is available and with an erlang of 20.
What are the pre-requisites to installing WiDOX 3.1?
- License to UHF frequency channels from 470 MHz to 1250 MHz with a minimum of 2×6 MHz channels (see table above)
- Tower infrastructure (or permission to erect or share a tower infrastructure) located within the service area
- Access to Internet, either at the tower or within backhaul distanc
- Access to electricity at tower infrastructure base
Does WiDOX 3.1 require clear line of sight?
No, it requires near line of sight (also called non-line of sight). This allows for partial obstruction, such as foliage and small buildings within the service area.
