3G fixed wireless is a cellular circuit that uses the strongest available signal of one of four of the largest cellular companies in the US. These cellular providers are ATT, ALLTEL, Verizon, and Sprint. For example, if you and three friends are sitting at a table in a restaurant, and each of you use one of four different cell companies, the signals of your phones are going to vary, depending on the location of the restaurant. If you all met at a different restaurant, in a different town the next day, chances are that a different person will have the strongest cell signal, depending on the proximity of the restaurant to the cell towers of the various cellular providers. This example demonstrates the first advantage of 3G service. All homes and businesses have unique proximity to various cell providers. 3G fixed wireless allows each business to lock into the tower that is closest to their building, and receive the strongest possible wireless circuit for that location.
The equipment that is sent for a 3g fixed wireless connection include an Ethernet cable, power cord for the modem, a modem, and two antennas, each the size of a small Pringles can. The equipment can be placed anywhere indoors that is near an electrical plug and is convenient for your company. The antennas are many times more powerful than an air card, and are designed to receive a circuit through the walls of your building, so you have many options for antenna placement. For example, you can place them on a window sill, on a small section of your desk, counter top, or on bookshelves. The modem is small, about four inches long and an inch high. On the back of the modem, is a plug for each antenna, a place to plug the Ethernet cable, and plug-in the power cord. To increase placement flexibility, you can use an electrical extension cord so that the modem does not need to be placed near an inconvenient location that happens to be near an electrical outlet. You can also substitute a longer Ethernet cord so the modem and antennas will not need to be located inconveniently close to your computer or internal network router. One end of the Ethernet cord plugs into the back of the router, the other end can be plugged into the back of your computer for single computer use. Multiple computers can share a single fixed wireless circuit, either via Ethernet connections, or wirelessly, by plugging the Ethernet cord from the modem to a network router. Most of these internal network routers can now provide both wired and wireless connections to other computers in the same For specific pricing and availability, please go to pricing and availability tool at the top of this page.
