Network Access using TCP/IP over WiFi Part 15 Radio

Overview   |    Services   |    Connect   |    Equipment   |    Resources   |    Support



Multi-megabit point-to-point and point-to-multipoint connections to the Santa Clara County data network are available using commercially available WiFi equipment and protocols. The links are operated on unlicensed spectrum using FCC Part 15 rules and are encrypted. Because of the nature of microwave propagation, connectivity is limited to locations with a clear line-of-site to one of the county sites.
