Enterprise Connect

Faster Than Fiber

Wireless ETC Enterprise Connect, based on advanced microwave fixed-wireless technology, provides a better solution than fiber optic networks due to a combination of an advantage in transmission medium and simpler geometry – the shortest distance between two points is a straight line.

Enterprise Connect vs Fiber


Microwave signals travel 50% faster through the air than light through optical fiber.

Shorter Path

Microwave networks have shorter routes, reducing the total network distance and further improving latency.

More Reliable

Microwave links cannot be damaged by construction accidents, transportation accidents, falling trees or fire, unless they are localized to the tower site.

Extended Reach

Microwave networks can be built faster, delivering service where you need it and when you need it.

Lower Cost

The overall cost-per-mile associated with building microwave networks is less than fiber optic cable – this translates into lower cost for service installation and lower monthly service fees.

Latency is largely a function of the speed of light, which is 299,792,458 meters/second in a vacuum. Microwave signals travel through the air at approximately the same speed as light through a vacuum and will have a latency of approximately 5.4 microseconds for every mile of path length. Light travel in optical fiber has a latency of 8.01 microseconds for every mile of cable, due to the refraction in the fiber.
