Definition Edit

A microwave network

(operating with interoperability standards like WiMAX) can provide long-range high-bandwidth point-to-point communications. High-power antennas require (near) line-of-sight (LoS) and so can be mounted on top of buildings or cellular towers . . . . They are also commonly used as the communications medium for satellite networks. . . . Microwave networks can also be deployed with mobile units mounted to vehicles or field-deployable towers to gain height and achieve LoS. However, this requires careful setup to ensure as direct a link as possible, including minimal obstacles in between, with the backhaul end point.[1]
