While Clearwave utilizes proprietary wireless technology to deliver an internet service to your home, a secondary "wi-fi" wireless system is used to communicate with mobile and other devices within the home. A Standard "Wi-Fi" router placed in the basement at the electrical panel where all of the communications wiring is typically terminated typically will have limits to its effective wi-fi range and most likely will not reach the second floor of the house, or another corner of the business / shop floor.
Proper placement of the wireless router within the home/business is essential to proper and effective performance. Use of wi-fi extenders usually don’t solve problems as they just amplify a noisy signal and re-broadcast it. Proper network architecture should be used with stand-alone WAP (wireless access points) to augment the wi-fi coverage within the premise.
Clearwave utilizes Cambium E400 / or E500 outdoor WAPs for single AP or small cluster wi-fi networks and enterprise class Cisco Meraki controlled WAPs for medium to large scale roam-able wi-fi networks.
Every solution Clearwave provides is engineered to cover the requested area and designed accordingly. We never use wi-fi extenders or in-expensive equipment. The cheap man always pays twice so we like to do it properly the first time.
Stand Alone WAP
Stand Alone WAP are great for small offices or large homes with wall structures that limit wi-fi propagation. The WAP is hard wired back to to the core network so it generates a clean wi-fi signal.
