E-Book: How to Meet Bandwith Requirements in Narrowband Channels
A number of options exist for a utility to deploy a communications network – microwave, fiber, LTE/5G solutions, and licensed narrowband. The solution chosen will depend on balancing coverage and capacity with the cost. Each option obviously offers pros and cons which need to be balanced against each other during the decision-making process. One solution which offers ultra-high data capacity, for example, may also involve a lengthy deployment with high capital costs. Terrain and climate may also be significant determining factors that immediately rule out one approach in favor of another.
Narrowband as one of the options for communications networks, may often unjustifiably discounted when in fact it might be one of the ideal solutions. Here are the key advantages in narrowband communications solutions:
Lower rollout costs
Private, licensed network
No requirement for line-of-sight
Better immunity to weather events and natural disasters
But the question remains the same. Will narrowband meet your requirements?
To build a better case, find out how to meet bandwith requirements in narrowband channels through the E-Book below.
Having concluded that the 700MHz A-block provided the best option to meet our future electric grid automation needs, we defined requirements, performed an in-depth assessment of technology providers and selected Mimomax for the platform to build our Field Area Network (FAN). Mimomax demonstrated both superior technology and the ability to offer a holistic approach where we could proactively and securely manage the network.

“Our radio cutover to the Mimomax system was very smooth. Our field technicians were able to bring over 50 radios online in one day since the links connected right away.”

Throughout this project, every member of the Mimomax team has been vastly knowledgeable about the products and always eager to answer any questions or help solve individual issues. The result is that they have ensured that Navopache Electric is getting exactly what we need out of our radios.
