Cost explosion for high speed wired connectivity!
The cost for a leased 1.5 Mbps T1-line is not fixed but depends on the geographical location and the interconnection distance. The average price is close to $700 per month. In addition the customer normally pays a setup fee and has to buy the appropriate T1 endpoint equipment. These additional expenses can easily add up to another couple of thousand dollars. Based on this pricing structure, the first year of operating a T-1 line normally costs more than $10,000. If a customer's bandwidth needs exceed the capability of a single T-1 speed connection, there is the option to lease additional T1 lines or to lease a higher speed connection such as a T-3 (45 Mbps) or an OC-3 (155 Mbps) line. This easily causes a cost explosion on leasing fees. In many cases the customer even has to abandon the endpoint equipment which increases the costs even more.
Just one "real world" example:
How to get high speed connectivity at a fraction of a leased line cost and recoup operating costs in less than 4 months?
One customer (company X) in San Francisco had to connect two buildings right across
the street. In both buildings they were running a 100 Mbps Ethernet and the task was to
interconnect both network segments. Fiber was the only wire based media to carry the
network traffic between the two buildings and before company X found out about our
technology they made a commitment to rent dark fiber. The rental agreement included a
commitment for five years at a cost of $4,000/month. In addition there was a one time
setup fee of $27,000. The total costs for this five year agreement ended up being $267,000
and the operating costs for first year alone were $75,000.
|If your company envisions that it's network traffic will grow in the near future (which is mostly likely for all companies), don't spent money on getting a T-1 connection for your data network and buy expensive endpoint equipment.|
|The networking community sees a migration from 10 Mbps Ethernet to 100 Mbps Ethernet, ATM or even Gigabit Ethernet. If your company has line-of-sight locations and is using a T-1 connection, ask yourself if it makes sense for your business to operate the local networking locations at 60-600 times higher bandwidth then the connection between the remote networking locations. These kind of networking "bottlenecks" can be very expensive! People will probably sit and wait forever before a certain file is transferred from the remote location. This is not the most productive way to run a business!|
|Use our wireless networking equipment to operate your network at real network speed between remote locations. Keep in mind that just a 10 Mbps Ethernet connection is equivalent to running 6 T-1 lines in parallel. How much will 6 T-1 lines cost your company? What about 100 Mbps Fast Ethernet (60 T-1 lines or more than the bandwidth of 2 T-3 lines)? Don't even think about the cost for a OC-3 speed ATM connection (see company X above)!|
|Ask yourself how much hassle it can be to get a wired connection. Lots
of paper work and sometimes months can pass by before the connection is in place. If you
have to trench fiber, because you need a higher speed connection, you might have to deal
with right-of-way issues, get permits from local authorities, end up with long term
leasing agreements and/or pay a considerable amount of the trenching costs. While you
wait, your company looses money because the network that will allows people to be more
productive is not in place.|
Wireless is easy: No license required, and in many cases it can be installed within one day!
|But isn't your wireless equipment expensive?|
Not at all, especially when you consider all the benefits your company will get.
Example: If you calculate the price of our high-end product, the LightStation 155/2000 that operates at 155 Mbps up to 1.25 miles, the T-1 speed equivalent bandwidth cost is US$330. This is less than the regular monthly charge for a T-1 line! Keep in mind that this is a one time charge for a 24 hours a day/7 days a week connectivity! NO recurring fees, NO long term leasing agreements, NO monthly payment to your local service provider!
For our lower speed 10 Mbps product this bandwidth/$ calculation ends up with roughly US$2200. The bandwidth/$ ratio is somewhat higher for the lower speed products but having in mind that the average monthly cost for a single T-1 line is already around US$700 (and 10 Mbps equals 6 T-1 lines) this price is still extremely low.
As a rule of thumb, and when compared to leased lines, the initial investment into our wireless equipment is recouped in 4 to 6 month!
|Some wireless companies claim to have similar equipment at even lower
AIRLINX Communications has build its name and reputation on providing high-performance, reliable wireless networking equipment. LightStation customers are high profile clients such as Investment Banks, Insurance Agencies, the German Bank, Hospitals, etc... LightStation clients depend on their networks and the links have to perform according to high standards. Therefore, only the highest performance materials (no plastic parts, only solid machined metal parts), and the highest performance electronics and optics are used in the manufacturing process. All manufacturing processes are ISO 9001 certified. Customer support and satisfaction is the top priority of our business. LightStation products are also the only commercially available systems on the market that use four transmitters and four receive optics (Multibeam-Multipath Technology) to archive the highest reliability over longer distances. The cost difference basically means that it takes customers 2 months longer to recoup the investment of the wireless equipment.
The basic question is: Why do you want to drive a Volkswagen if you can drive a Mercedes for a little more money?
