Radwin Focused Beam Technology (FBT) Wireless Internet

Radwin FBT does not require physical wires (copper or fiber) to your home. And does not require you to have local phone service.

There is a small antenna panel (7’ X 7’ X 1.5’) that attaches to your home or a pole in your yard. An ethernet cable then runs from the antenna into your home and is connected to , what we call, a powerbrick that is A/C powered from your home. Your router then plugs into the powerbrick.

Radwin FBT also requires a ‘base station’ that is attached to one of our communication towers and is connected to the internet via redundant fiber optic network. The base station communicates with the antenna on your house and provides internet access.

The unique feature of Radwin FBT is that it creates a private ‘microwave’ path to your home that no one else has access to. As a result, Radwin FBT offers much higher bandwidths than other wireless technologies.

But like all wireless technologies it only goes so far and requires line of sight to our communications tower. As a result, we offer a free site survey to determine if Radwin FBT will work at your location.

Radwin FBT – Equipment and Installation

Radwin FTB is a proprietary technology developed by Radwin and requires Radwin equipment at your home. The first piece of equipment is a small flat antenna panel (7”x 7” x 1.5”) that attaches to your home or a pole in your yard. An ethernet cable then runs from the antenna into your home and is connected to, what we call a ‘powerbrick’ which is A/C powered from your home. Your router then plugs into the ‘powerbrick.’ But like all wireless technologies it only goes so far and requires line of site to our communications towers. As a result we offer a free site survey to determine if Radwin FBT will work at your location.
