2. Lower setup costs
Wired broadband lines are naturally more costly to install than wireless solutions, particularly in greenfield locations where wired connections have not been established. When this is the case, additional costs quickly add up: from sourcing permits, excavating land, and installing the infrastructure, in addition to the time and labour resources required to get the job done.
Public LTE/5G connectivity, on the other hand, is much easier to deploy. Leveraging existing cellular network infrastructure means no construction work, cabling expenses, or municipality permits are needed. It also means faster deployment, avoiding any loss of business because of not having connectivity on time. In other words, it saves money by saving time.
3. Lower resource and staffing requirements
Implementing new technologies often comes with a learning curve that organisations need to overcome, usually by hiring new staff or training existing employees to get them up to speed. Certifications may also be required, which adds to the cost.
However, when you work with a managed service provider like Blue Wireless, you forego the need for any of this. Outsourcing your wireless network management to us will help your organisation unlock immediate cost savings and results while enabling your IT teams to focus on their core responsibilities.
4. More value for money for small branches
Multinational corporations and large enterprises pay a great deal for high-speed wired broadband across all their branches.
This might look great on paper, but it’s very expensive—according to IDC’s August 2022 Enterprise Communications Services Survey, more than two-thirds (68%) of enterprises need less than 1Gbps for each location and a third need less than 100Mbps.
This means that, for the most part, enterprises’ networks can cope just fine with the speeds that are on offer in a fixed wireless access solution, enabling them to unlock significant cost savings through lower monthly Internet bills, especially for smaller distributed and remote branches.
