From day one, the
engineers at Pyxis understood the need to provide
ultra-secure, ultra-reliable service to their customers. This
is why Pyxis has invested considerable time and dollars to
license a specific frequency from the FCC in which to operate
their wireless backbone.
strategically selected gear capable of 100Mbs, full-duplex
throughput at ranges of 10 miles, but continues to locate
towers less than 8 miles apart, creating a stronger backbone
with much greater resistance to fade and dropout.
This setup enables
Pyxis to provide virtually interference free connections
between towers with the extra power to ensure reliable and
available bandwidth for providers to sell licensed or
unlicensed services to end customers.
safeguards associated with the Pyxis backbone are significant
and industrial-strength. First, consider the physical
constraints associated with the towers themselves. The
antennas require direct line-of-sight within 1° of center. To
intercept their signal, a intruder would need to place their
gear in the absolute direct path of this beam, some hundred
feet in the air.
Second, because the
Pyxis backbone operates in a FCC licensed frequency, the
intruder would need identical, commercial-grade gear with an
Third, even if an
intruder went to these lengths, the gear utilizes both
authentication and encryption technologies to ensure that
if the data stream was captured, an intruder would see
nothing more than a stream of worthless
Pyxis Broadband is
in the business of providing wholesale, carrier-grade service
to WISP’s and ISP’s. Pyxis will not compete with their clients
and sell direct to an end customer, like traditional carriers,
plain and simple.
Combined with an
extensive technical infrastructure, this market approach means
Pyxis Broadband truly becomes your "Fiber in the Sky" and a
unique, cost effective alternative to traditional, land-based
T1 or fiber Internet connections.
traditional land-based connectivity, providers often have to
choose between small or jumbo-size, with little in between.
Additionally, there are limited options associated with
scaling bandwidth up and down as the providers needs
offers the flexibility to scale bandwidth virtually on-demand
without the investment of additional gear. This allows a
provider to add or subtract bandwidth on a month-to-
month basis to grow within their means.
Its only logical
for providers that already understand and benefit from the
advantages of wireless technologies tap into a wireless
backbone to gain a competitive advantage.
One of the greatest
disadvantages to landline fiber is a provider needs to locate
their gear where the fiber is available. There is limited
flexibility associated with where a tower is located in
relation to where the fiber exists and who is the provider of
The Pyxis Broadband
wireless backbone frees WISP’s and ISP’s to locate their gear
virtually anywhere - on any building, on any tower, in any
location - within line-of-sight of one of the Pyxis towers.
Additionally, the Pyxis Broadband backbone only touches ground
at certain points.
If a provider
connects to the backbone in Elgin, as an example, that
connection might not hit a landline until Naperville. This
creates a unique disaster recovery plan to mitigate certain
natural disasters. As the backbone grows, the assurance
associated with the design grows proportionately.
Broadband offers a wholesale alternative to landline fiber
via carrier-grade, wireless backbone operating in a
secure, FCC licensed frequency.
