Advances in the technologies of the electronic components essential to mobility continue to yield powerful and productive mobile computers and communicators, with an amazing range of function and raw capabilities that even seasoned professionals find remarkable. There also have been dramatic improvements in wireless networks—from Wi-Fi to the broadband cellular services that continue to expand in both coverage and capacity—that offer throughput and related performance characteristics that rival what’s possible on wire. Finally, add in apps, cloud solutions and related management capabilities, and there’s never been a better time than right now to profit from a strategy that reaps the benefits of a mobile workforce—and, really, a mobile organization.
Today, the widespread availability of 3G and 4G cellular or wireless broadband networks enables digital signage to be deployed virtually anywhere. Combined with cloud-enabled network management and content delivery systems, 3G and 4G wireless broadband networks are propelling digital signage deployments at an accelerated pace. In countless venues, digital signage networked via wireless broadband signal penetrates hard-to-reach locations, new markets, and can achieve a faster return on investment.

For many wireless broadband network operators, the term "unlicensed reliability" is seen as an oxymoron. For many, the idea of building a high-speed network in the unlicensed band isn't a good one. A great deal has been said about crowded frequencies, self-interference and costly network rips. About how microwaving popcorn can cause interference. About disgruntled and perplexed customers. And ex-customers.
Cambium Networks’ fixed wireless broadband solutions provide an attractive ROI for electric utilities when replacing leased-lines for:
Redundant backbone IP network rings
Smart meter and distribution automation aggregation transport
Transport for substation and distribution SCADA data
Remote office connectivity
Mobile WiFi connectivity in substations and operation centers

What’s the catalyst behind this astonishing growth? There’s little question that one of the prime drivers — perhaps the most important of all — is the meteoric rise of reliable, high quality, cost-efficient wireless broadband video surveillance networks.
Retailer Uses Cradlepoint Solution to Provide Wireless Failover & Redundancy for Point-of-Sale (PoS) Systems
Cradlepoint devices provide wireless backup of wired Internet connections for retail superstores in the Blinds To Go system. In the event of an outage of the primary Internet land line (T1/fi ber, DSL, or cable) at a Blinds To Go site, Cradlepoint devices automatically switch to its wireless 3G/4G broadband connection within 30 seconds. The point-of-sale (POS) systems connected to the Cradlepoint router continue to operate at broadband speeds without further interruption, ensuring continuous uptime for POS transactions at the Blinds To Go superstore.
In the high-stakes battle of Internet providers, WiMAX represents the latest up-and-comer to challenge DSL and cable technologies. This new wireless technology is gaining attention for its ability to provide high-speed, high-throughput broadband connections over distances of up to 30 miles instead of a few hundred feet. Exhibiting a surprising amount of utility, WiMAX can be used for a number of different applications.
This white paper presents how a radically consolidated, scalable core network architecture based on multi-core processor technology can significantly reduce the cost of the core network and thereby reducing the cost to serve the first WIMAX subscribers.
