Fixed Network Engineering

Wireless traffic is only between the wireless device and the tower antenna and are ultimately routed through a Wireline network. The fixed network (backhaul) interconnect facilities, which connect switching centers to Wireline networks carries the bulk of the traffic. The costs associated with new technologies and interconnection networks represent a significant portion of overall operating costs for telecommunications service providers. To serve its customers in this environment, VERSACOM uses its experience in design, optimization, specialized data networking and Internet protocol engineering to construct cost-effective and reliable backhaul interconnection solutions.
