Wireless Wide Area Network (WWAN)
Why you should use Wireless WAN connectivity from AT&T for primary and backup connectivity
You face many challenges when you create a Wide Area Network (WAN) solution for your business including how to:
- Get connectivity when and where you need it
- Maintain more secure and reliable network connectivity
- Build a cost effective solution
Wireless WAN Connectivity from AT&T can play a significant role in meeting these challenges by using the AT&T Broadband Connect network in addition to, or as an alternative to, wireline WAN solutions. Wireless WAN Connectivity from AT&T can help your business stay connected, reduce installation intervals, and enable data transmission and transaction processing from almost anywhere your business takes you.
Why you should use Wireless WAN connectivity from AT&T
Backup Connectivity—Wireless WAN provides diverse, cost effective backup for your data applications, quick deployment for temporary, new or remote locations, disaster recovery response, and mobile workers, as well as consistent network connectivity.
Primary Connectivity—Wireless WAN is ideal for primary connectivity for lower bandwidth applications in situations where wired networks are unavailable or infeasible. It is the ideal solution for obtaining connectivity in the locations where you need it, such as:
- Branch offices
- Point of sale locations
- Kiosks and ATMs
- Remote measurement and monitoring equipment
- Temporary locations
How Wireless WAN connectivity from AT&T works
Wireless WAN allows locations to connect to the corporate infrastructure across AT&T Mobility’s Broadband Connect network by using a cellular-enabled router and security-enhanced dedicated or Internet connection to your data center or headquarters location. You can use Wireless WAN connectivity as an effective alternative to ISDN for backup connectivity or as the primary solution in places where wireline solutions are not viable options. Both solutions are shown in the following diagrams.
