As automation, remote monitoring and the use of video surveillance rises, the need for higher capacity networks is accelerating. Reliance on traditional circuits is becoming less of an option as these circuits cannot support the required data rates, and service providers are increasing costs due to maintenance. Fiber technology has high installation time and costs. Public networks offer some relief, but likely do not provide the necessary coverage and come with administrative burdens and high subscription costs. Private fixed wireless data networks offer secure scalable communication networks and are increasingly becoming the network of choice.
