Cellular & Fiber

And lastly we introduce you to cellular connectivity and fiber optics.

With cellular this is connectivity for cell phones, tablets, hot spots, etc.  It does not require line-of-site to connect rather you must be within a given range of the cell tower or have roaming capabilities if you are out you’re your carriers tower range.

Cellular offers several types, mainly 3g and 4g which is not necessarily a representation of the actual speed with which the device transmits. We’ll explain how this works and why there are such differences, G stands for Generation.

We’ll define what LTE is, and why it’s important to examine the specs of the device to assess its actual capabilities and why that fluctuates so.

With Fiber, you have connectivity established over beams of light.  There are several types of fiber connections and you’ll learn the differences amongst them all.

For example, FTTN is fiber to the node, and FFTC is fiber to the curb.

Both are connections to a street box, but one is funneled to a closer location to the client site than the other, and that impacts transmission speed and bandwidth, you’ll learn how that differs from FTTP which is fiber to the premises and why this is the best possible level of connectivity to get.
