Network Overview

 


Network Design
Our network design incorporates a hybrid fiber/wireless broadband architecture that uses redundant fiber based backbone networks (where available) and fixed wireless systems that are engineered to the highest level of performance and availability. We combine our scalable high-speed wireless service along with traditional fiber based backbone networks to offer the most cost-effective, highest availability, broadband solution in our target markets. We have successfully deployed a true "first mile" solution bringing high-speed broadband access to residents and businesses throughout Ontario and eventually to other areas in Canada.

Wireless
We leverage state-of-the-art radio frequency (RF) technology from leading wireless vendors in both the unlicensed (900 MHz, 2.4, 5.8GHz) and licensed (3.5, 18, 23GHz) frequency spectrum that is cost-effective, reliable and easy to install. We choose specific licensed and/or unlicensed frequency bands in each geographic area in order to meet the minimum service standards without compromising throughput, reliability and security. Each customer premise equipment high speed modem connects wirelessly to a nearby local access node/base station. Base stations are interconnected via high-speed fiber and microwave links back to one of our Regional hubs.

Peered Internet Connectivity
W3
leverages its telecom partners’ internet transit and peering relationships with multiple global carriers, providing greater performance and reliability.
