    Microwave / Laser Link to another building - any recommendations?

    Hi everyone,

    I am looking at the possibility of putting in some kind of microwave or laser link in to a building across the road that we are going to be using. Does anyone have a recommended comms company that they have used in the past that might be able to give me some pricing???

    I am based in Stockport, so any companies in the North West that you recommend will be much appreciated.

    Many thanks

    Alan.

    Thanks for the pic....not the best WAN diagram i've ever seen but any info of this sort in the public domain is always nice.

    It's interesting that they've built the WAN predominantly using wireless at the edge, i think dark fiber could well be a more scalable while not hideously expensive option for a new WAN. Although i'd imagine that would depend on the geography of the region.

    Any WAN gurus hazard a guess as to what 100MBs + 4xE1 means. Surely that's 100mbps or 4xE1, and i've never heard of a 64MBs connection LES, wireless or otherwise.

    I'm guessing 4xE1 denotes x4 2mbps megastream circuits as a backup for the 100mbps circuit.
