Consulting

Because every business is different, FastLinks offers a wide range of consulting services where its professionals apply scientific knowledge, and ingenuity to develop solutions to meet customer needs.

Feasibility Studies

Feasibility studies are conducted to determine the optimal transmission routes and mediums of wireless communications to best meet all our prospective customer’s connectivity requirements. Our personnel will visit all sites, as well as any other available structures suitable for supporting wireless communications using transmitters/antennas. At each site, the following will be evaluated:

  • Line of Sight
  • Existing LAN
  • Video &/or Voice Facilities in Place (Hardware & Cable)
  • Wireless Transmitter/ Antenna Mount Design & Location
  • Cable Type, Length, & Routing
  • Desired Location of Indoor Hardware
  • Security of the Proposed Wireless Communication Setup
  • Potential for Interference with Existing Wireless Communications Systems/Device

Topographic Map/Aerial Photography Analysis

FastLinks can review topographic maps (including US Geological Survey) and aerial photographs to determine the likelihood of line of sight between locations. Potential obstructions will be identified, and path profile plots constructed to determine the antenna centerline heights that would be needed to clear any obstructions.

Line of Site Surveys

Similar to feasibility study, however focusing solely on determining what it would take to establish line of sight between our customers’ facilities

Path Calculations

Path availability will be calculated in order to have an estimate as to the annual outage time due to weather related attenuation one can expect for any proposed wireless system over a specified distance.

Tower Design

At locations that require a tower in order to establish line of sight with others, FastLinks will detail the minimum load (antenna size and height, plus transmission line) the tower will need to support, and work with the major manufacturers to design the appropriate structure.

Frequency Coordination & FCC Licensing

To operate radios in a number of frequency bands requires a FCC license and FastLinks can obtain this license for you. Upon completion, we provide the FCC file numbers.

Project Management

FastLinks people have overseen the design, coordination and rollout of hundreds of wireless systems.

Installation

FastLinks can provide for the turn-key installation of the various wireless systems it offers. This would include cabling, the secure mounting of the wireless transmitters/receivers, grounding, surge protection, path alignment & system testing.
