Frequently Asked Questions

What is wireless WAN?2020-10-13T14:15:44+00:00

Wireless WAN puts LTE and 5G connectivity as the primary connection instead of wired connections. Wireless WAN is a combination of hardware, software, and carrier services that provide connectivity that is dependent on a wireless connection to a carrier tower, rather than a wired connection to a carrier point of presence (PoP). This allows it to be deployed virtually anywhere that has a wireless signal.

What is a private LTE?2020-10-13T14:16:28+00:00

A private LTE network leverages localized micro towers and small cells — conceptually like Wi-Fi access points — to provide coverage and connectivity. It functions much like a scaled-down version of a public cellular network and allows wireless WAN traffic to be backhauled on private infrastructure between two points in a customer network, leveraging a private carrier backbone. This allows end to end communication without the traffic ever traversing the public Internet. Private LTE can be based on licensed, unlicensed, or shared spectrum.

What are the benefits of private LTE vs public LTEs?2020-10-13T14:17:02+00:00

Networking within distributed locales — like distribution centers, airports, campuses, large venues and even cities — has always been a challenge. With the democratization of wireless spectrum and cloudification of carrier infrastructure, Private LTE has emerged as an ideal solution for the “wide-area LAN” problem. It combines the control and fixed cost of a private network with the flexibility, security, and macro-network benefits of LTE, and has a built-in pathway to Private 5G.

How does wireless WAN work when the cellular network goes down?2020-10-13T14:17:28+00:00

Interface can design a solution that incorporates a second cellular carrier, or even terrestrial broadband as backup should the primary carrier network go down. The Wireless WAN router will recognize the primary carrier has gone down and failover to the backup communication path whether it is LTE/5G or terrestrial broadband.

How is wireless WAN impacted by patchy network coverage or in a dead zone?2020-10-13T14:18:12+00:00

Interface tests coverage for multiple carriers as part of our solutions engineering and during our installation process in order to deliver the best service for each location. Should we identify a location with patchy coverage, as part of our installation we will test multiple carriers so we can provide the best coverage for that location.

We can design a solution that incorporates a second cellular carrier and use both carriers in an active-active connection configuration. We can add terrestrial broadband as backup should the primary carrier network not be available. The Wireless WAN router can be configured to use the best, or only active, carrier to route traffic whether it is LTE/5G or terrestrial broadband.
