Successful installation and connection of Secure Web Services Rural Broadband requires:

Essential

  • Line of sight to one of our relays or masts
  • Power supply
  • External radio* (receives signal from relay or mast)
  • Internal Power Over Ethernet* (POE) device
The external radio is fixed to the outside of your property and is hardwired to the internal POE device.

Optional

  • Internal Wireless Access Point** (WAP) Router
A WAP router will enable devices within the installed property to connect wirelessly to the broadband service and is essential if you wish to use laptops away from the POE device, WiFi enabled mobile phones, wireless gaming devices or tablets.

Continuous Monitoring

Secure Web Services' wireless network is continuously monitored by software which sends an alert the moment a change in service is detected. Each mast, relay and external radio is uniquely identified. We respond to alerts as rapidly as possible to minimise disruption to your service.

Monitoring bandwith usage through the network has enabled us to identify and eliminate virus activity on devices accessing the network.

Remote Detection

We are able to detect remotely if a power supply to mast, relay or external radio has failed (turned off, disconnected or power cut) and even if a wire has been plugged into the wrong connection!

This enables us to identify whether a distruption in service is down to a network or an internal router error.

Office Hours

Our office hours are 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday.

Secure Web Services (SWS) network is a collaborative wireless
network
delivering reliable high speed broadband to properties in rural Shropshire between
the Long Mountain and the Long Mynd and from Westbury to Clun.

Delivered over low power, line-of-sight radio, service is not degraded by distance from your local telephone exchange. In fact, you don’t even need a telephone line to use it.

The connection speed you select is the speed you receive with SWS's wireless broadband service.

Using SWS's wireless broadband you will be able to access BBC iPlayer and other streaming/gaming services, use a bolt on mobile telephone service to enable Orange/T Mobile/Vodafone and Blackberry 3G mobile phones in an otherwise ‘no signal’ area and even make free calls to landlines via a Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) service.

The following table shows the maximum theoretical telephone line based broadband speed with the actual speed that can be provided by SWS's wireless broadband. In practice telephone line based connection speed is often less than that quoted due to the ‘true’ cable length, the amount of copper the cable contains and the broadband capacity of the provider (eg BT, Talk Talk, Sky, etc) downstream from the exchange.

Terrestrial wireless uses between 10mW and 100mW of power to broadcast its signal. In comparison, a baby monitor uses 250mW of power and a mobile phone uses 3000mW of power when transmitting. Terrestrial wireless is such low power that the radios have to be in true line-of-sight to work and an obstruction eg tree or another building can degrade or completely obstruct the signal. Secure Web Services works hard to locate the optimum position for the broadcast radios, relaying from property to property to help connect less visible buildings when necessary.

Using sophisticated topographical mapping software combined with our knowledge of the area we are often able to determine if we are able to connect your property to our network without the need for a site survey. 

Please contact us if you would like more information or to arrange installation.
