Cloud Based Plug And Play Network


Introduction

An 802.11 WiFi based green network to cover a metro is a simple, reliable, cost effective and environment friendly solu.on to provide high speed Internet and Intranet services over WiFi enabled devices. This network donít require any transmission cable or op.cal fibre network or road digging as itís formed by WiFi meshing. The solu.on is based on a system that has delivered more than 15,000 networks worldwide with more than 7 millions clients connected to it.

The Access Points are 10 cm tall and just 100gm smart routers that connects to each other over air interface and form a mesh network without any transmission cable network. The end router can act as a Gateway connected to Internet and rest of 100s small routers reach the Gateway by using each other as hops and finding smart routes.

The routers have just 5 W power consump.on and can also be powered by solar panel. A sola powered outer neither requires any power cable no any transmission cable and providesWiFi access without any cable connected to it!

There is no requirement for heavy switches and core network or billing plaNorms as itís all centrally managed over web


Types of Network

  • Metro wide Public WiFi
  • Hot spots-Restaurant, Park, Airport
  • Enterprise- Office, Factory, Intranet, VLAN
  • Education- Institutes, College, Universities, Remote schools, Training facilities


Benefits

Cover Hard to Reach Areas : The Solar is ideal for providing coverage to remote or hard to get to places. Sometimes there are just a few access points that are hard to wire, so youíll need just a few Solar units. In other cases, the entire area is without power; fair grounds or parks are typical examples.

Solar is Green : The Solar runs on its own state-of-the-art solar-charged baUery, and requires no connec.on to the local electrical grid. The Solar is incredibly energy efficient and has limited impact on the environment.

Reduce Hassle and Planning : Even if itís possible to reach an area with power, sometimes the time required to plan for and secure the rights to that power can be prohibilitively expensive. Take for example, a business district. Each building rooXop or storefront is owned by a different entity. Securing permission from each business owner can be time consuming and complex. With the Solar, all you need is a 30 minute time window on the roof.

Save Time and Money : In many cases the single most expensive line item in an Outdoor network installation is the time and materials required to cable and install an access point. The Solar drastically reduces this cost, requiring only 30 minutes of a trade-level installer. Since there are no electrical or network cabling runs, there are no electricians involved. This translates into a significant cost savings in many applica.ons.

Social Impacts

Simple and Affordable Access for Common Users : As most devices nowadays are WiFi enabled this network will provide the simplest way to access the Internet by a common user without the hassles of buying and installing external modems.

Internet to Remote Rural Areas : With up to 20Kms point to point transmission without wires and solar powered APs, this solution can deliver Internet access for remote villages even in the mountains and valleys where itís almost impossible to dig roads, lay cables or stretch power.

Internet for School and College Campus : A single solar powered AP is sufficient to cover a remote school or college campus without any transmission or power cable. Addi.onally as these WiFi enabled APs are high in capacity (up to 54 Mbsps) this will make sure that students experience a high speed Internet and Intranet services.

Internet in Parks, ExhibiFons and Sports Stadiums : The solar powered APs just need to be moved to the location and hanged. It just take 5 minutes for them to be on ĎAirí and the location is covered. Solar powered APs would off course not require any cable. The liUle Electrical powered consumes just 5 W and can be carried in hand and placed at suitable location without any issue of transmission cable.

Knowledge Based TV Programs : Due to the high Intranet capacity the Mesh Network provides an opportunity to deliver knowledge based TV programs over WiFi enabled devices at no additional cost of access network bandwidth.

 

Technology

Multi-Channel, Multi-Radio Routing : In many environments, such as campus, outdoor or industrial environments, wired backhaul infrastructure is unavailable or too expensive to deploy, making it necessary to deploy large networks of wireless repeaters. However, as networks grow in size, the combined number of potential routes and RF channel paths through the network grows exponen.ally.

The state-of-the-art routing protocols are designed to measure the data capacity of each link and determine the best routes for traffic through the network. By constantly measuring frame reception rates on all available links, across a wide range of modulations, The proprietary routing protocols are able to determine which paths deliver the highest throughput. These measurements also account for the many forms of interference or link failure seen in wireless networks, such as multi-path fading, link asymmetry from interference and environmental changes. The routing protocols are also integrated with The Dynamic RF planning technology, to take advantage of multiple wireless channels and radios whenever possible. In networks with multi-radio devices, the routing protocol will aUempt to find full-duplex wireless links wherever possible to eliminate per-hop routing penalties found in single-radio networks. Furthermore, each wireless repeater will evaluate the available wireless channels to maximize overall system capacity and client throughput.

Automatic Gateway Selection : In large networks with dozens or hundreds of repeaters, multiple Internet gateways are required to bear the overall network traffic load, which are oXen connected to heterogeneous bandwidth providers which each have their own IP addressing schemes. In such cases, the rou.ng protocol and traffic management engine cooperate to ensure user traffic is mapped to the best gateway at all times, while maintaining a consistent mapping for each TCP flow to prevent user-facing interruptions due to changes in wireless conditions.

The access points are also fault-tolerant and will automatically reconfigure to become a mesh access point in the event of a
wired link failure. The combination of the routing technologies, automatic failure detection and cloud services enables networks to continue operating despite failures or configuration changes in the rest of the network.


Technical Overview

Distance between APs=150m*, distance between hubs=900m

Per AP traffic=up to 54Mbps

Access Network frequency: 5MHz from 2412-2467 MHz
Option of automatic selection based on least interfered channel

Network configuration and O&M= Cloud based over Internet with ability to be
connected to external radius and billing servers

Typical time for AP to go on air from scratch= 15 minutes

Typical time to cover a metro < a month

*Although the AP can go up to 2Kms in point-point, but the limitation of 150m is due
to the fact that devices such as phone and laptops donít go beyond 50-70m
