Building-to-Building Links

With a dedicated wireless link from Port Networks, you can move large amounts of data between two buildings quickly and affordably.

Organizations that have multiple locations within a city usually benefit from consolidating data and VoIP traffic, but doing that with T1 or DS3 circuits from Verizon can be frustrating and expensive. Our 100Mbps building-to-building links makes it seem like you have everyone on the same Ethernet network, and the monthly cost is just a fraction of a single DS3.

Even if two buildings don't have line-of-sight between them, we can usually create a relayed link (Building A to Tower to Building B) that will deliver the same high-performance data connection.

Pricing

Our monthly rates for building-to-building links depend on the distance and obstacles between your locations. We price each link individually, but here are a couple of examples:

20Mbps/20Mbps (on a 50Mbps licensed link)
$795
 
100Mbps/100Mbps (on a 100Mbps licensed link)
$1,495
 

Our base pricing assumes a 24-month contract. With a 36-month contract, we can usually waive the cost of equipment installation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does using a wireless link expose our data to security risks?

The widespread use of amateur Wi-Fi has given wireless a bad reputation. In truth, a properly configured wireless link is at least as secure as an equivalent wired connection. Our links use pencil-thin beams of signal that would be extremely difficult to intercept, and if they were intercepted the datastream would be almost impossible to decipher. For the ultimate in protection, we offer AES encryption as an option.

What's included in a building-to-building link?

We provide a turnkey setup, including equipment, installation, configuration, and testing at the outset, and ongoing monitoring, maintenance, and support.

What latency does a wireless link add to my connection?

The equipment we use for building-to-building links introduces less than 5ms of latency.

Does Port Networks offer a Service Level Agreement?

All of our building-to-building links are covered by an aggressive Service Level Agreement that sets targets for service activation, link availability, link latency, and packet delivery. If your link is unavailable for more than 30 minutes in a month, you'll be credited one full day of payment for each cumulative hour of service interruption.
