EOL operates three different wireless technologies to cater for three different types of customers – enterprise, business and home clients. The company's infrastructure runs on proprietary WiMAX, integrated with synchronised MESH and Digital Beamforming Wi-Fi for optimum network performance and cost effective service delivery.
EOL uses Digital Beam Forming Wi-Fi technology as a platform to deliver high performance broadband at a low cost to customers. This technology offers superior range and uniform coverage (up to three times better than conventional Wi-Fi access points). This means EOL's network can be expanded to reach a larger group of consumers and at a lower cost.
Beam Forming technologies will become the next-generation of multiple-antenna, outdoor wireless broadband access networks. This powerful technology offers superior performance, even with low cost Wi-Fi equipment at the customer's site.
The reliability of MESH is unrivalled because it's a self-healing system. It is therefore the logical first choice as a primary broadband delivery platform for EOL's business customers. EOL's synchronised MESH network uses a combination of Synchronous Switching, Multiple Directional Point to Point Antenna Arrays and Time Division Duplex transmission (TDD)
Since MESH maximises the spectral efficiency of a single frequency by optimally reusing the channel over a wide coverage area, it enables the use of alternative channels to linearly scale capacity. By layering alternate channels throughout the coverage region, EOL is able to maximise the use of available frequencies.
EOL uses a proprietary WiMAX technology at the core of its high-speed wireless network, and to deliver super high-speed broadband to its Enterprise customers. It differs from standard WiMAX in the way than it uses Multi-Beam Space Time Coding and Spatial Multiplexing. It is therefore able to deliver far greater capacity than any WiMAX 16d or 16e standards-based radio on the market today. Furthermore, it is up to eight times more spectrally efficient than a basic WiMAX system.
With military grade encryption over the air at 300Mbps, its reliability and service levels are equal to, or better, than that offered by fibre - all for less than the cost of standard WiMAX.
EOL redefines wireless to "Pick any Three". Over the past 15 years EOL has developed a way to blend DBF - Wi-Fi, MESH and WiMAX together to create it's unique point of difference.
The laws of physics dictate that radio frequency signals will become weaker over any given distance. This imposes two fundamental constraints on all wireless networks.
1. To maximize capacity, wireless networks demand close proximity.
2. To minimize cost, wireless networks demand long range.
The fact that close proximity and long range cannot occur at the same time leads to the expression : "Cost, Coverage, and Capacity : Pick any two". You simply cant have all three simultaneously. Your choices are
A. Low cost and long range, but with low capacity (eg point-to-point Wi-Fi)
B. Low cost and high capacity, but only at short range (eg omni directional Wi-Fi)
C. Long range and high capacity, but at a high cost (eg: proprietary point-to-point)
This is true for any single wireless technology available today. However, by combining DBF, MESH and WiMAX technology, EOL's network is both scalable and modular which enables it to service a much larger coverage area at a lower cost than conventional wireless.
By extending the reach through multi-hop networking, it also enables closer proximity to subscribers along each hop. The integration of backhaul, relay, and base stations provides an economical solution, and the network synchronisation of transmissions maximises overall capacity. As a result of this systematic approach to broadband wireless networking, EOL has uniquely accomplished the seemingly mutually exclusive goals of low cost (DBF), extended coverage (MESH), and improved capacity (WiMAX) in one seamless network. EOL can therefore confidently say to its customers: "Cost, Coverage, and Capacity: Pick any Three".
