Industries We Serve
Educators and K12 IT Directors are running a race against time to deliver increased bandwidth to all buildings on campuses while extending the their network edge all the way to the desk. Wireless access points are the primary means of distributing Ethernet in classrooms. With mandates to support wireless laptops and pads, IT professionals are stressing budgets to build Ethernet networks with conventional high cost products. With disruptively priced wireless products from Ubiquiti and TP-Link, educators are empowered to deliver enterprise class networks at a fraction of last years budget and provide services never before possible. WiFi antennas and wifi extenders can increase wireless signal in underserved areas of schools, while TP-Link access points can distribute additional signal for bandwidth hungry applications.
Utility companies have long utilized remote monitoring with SCADA and other low bandwidth applications over expensive satellite links. Today, Utilities utilize unlicensed microwave to inexpensively extend their SCADA networks over IP networks, thereby saving money for their cooperative members or providing higher returns to stockholders. Tower sections from Rohn are the staple of the tower building industry and ISP maintains an extensive stock of Rohn products.
Wireless backhauls are an important part of telecommunications. They can allow small startups, and established LEC's as well, to penetrate unserved markets with speed and efficiency versus a comparable fiber option. LTE products from Baicells can serve high density deployments, while disruptively priced products from Ubiquiti and Mikrotik can wirelessly WISP (wireless internet service providers) customers. This allows carriers to deliver video, data and voice over wireless internet at a competitive price point and gain market share.
Wireless backhauls can also provide low cost redundancy for existing, single threaded fiber paths or allow increased capacity by offloading traffic from over-saturated circuits.
Radio and Television Broadcasting
There isn’t much in the broadcast ecosystem that isn’t already IP, except the baseband tier of live production,” said Chuck Meyer, chief technology officer for Grass Valley. He points to the fact that most facilities follow a file-based workflow for production, their traffic systems are automated, and the transmission end has all signals encoded in some form before heading to the transmitter.
“It’s about changing the workflow environment from being hardware based to software; that is where the operational flexibility comes in.” said John Maihot, IP solutions architect with Imagine Communications. Maihot says that the time has come for completely IP-based facilities to emerge, with the software component being key.
ISP Supplies can provide broadcasters with IP based microwave links that allow fiber speed connectivity between locations at a fraction of their leased fiber competitors. Let us engineer and install your next licensed link.
Integrators are companies who make turnkey solutions based on unfinished components such as Mikrotik RouterBOARD and RouterOS. Their products include assembled CPE/AP devices, preinstalled Integrated antennas and rackmount solutions assembled and unassembled. We handle all the required components for a completed wireless assembly and can even product the powder coated and silk screened enclosures for an integrator's custom assembly.
One of the most important applications of IP based digital microwave systems is represented by the connection between buildings in hospital complexes and from the main electronic archive to remote laboratories and specialist health checking points.
ISP Supplies also offers mobile solutions for connection of ambulances or temporary first aid installations to the institutional healthcare network, for connection of digital instruments or data/voice over IP communications.
A microwave link is a communications system that uses a beam of radio waves in the microwave frequency range to transmit information between two fixed locations on the earth. They are crucial to many forms of communication and impact a broad range of industries. Government agencies use them to provide communications networks between nearby facilities within an organization, such as a company with several buildings within a city.
One of the reasons microwave links are so adaptable is that they are broadband and their cost is fixed, not recurring like fiber. That means they can move large amounts of information at high speeds at a very low comparable cost. Another important quality of microwave links is that they require no equipment or facilities between the two terminal points, so installing a microwave link is often faster and less costly than a cable connection. Finally, they can be used almost anywhere, as long as the distance to be spanned is within the operating range of the equipment and there is clear path (that is, no solid obstacles) between the locations. Microwaves are also able to penetrate rain, fog, and snow, which means bad weather doesn’t disrupt transmission.
