Microwave (Data) Transport

Service Description

For off campus locations that due to use conditions need higher bandwidth and/or low cost connectivity back to the main campus network, this service is a point-to-point RF communication link. This solution offers a greatly reduced link cost from the traditional LEC or CLEC service provider. Use restriction on this type of installation is usually the ability to have line of sight path clearance between a campus site with campus connectivity and the off campus location and its antenna. Connection can be from one common site on campus to multi-sites off campus.
