Is Your Connection Stable & Secure? Selecting the Right Point-to-Point Products for Your Needs

DOU Blog (5)


A point-to-point wireless network is known for its ability to safely transport data between two devices, despite the physical distance that could impact its stability. Here’s everything you need to know about this important piece of equipment and how it could transform the way you do business. 


What’s Point-To-Point (PTP) 

Simply put, point-to-point (PTP) telecommunications are a secure wireless data link between two fixed points, typically connected together over a wide area network (WAN). These products are typically bi-directional, and either time-division multiple access (TDMA) or channelized. There are a variety of reasons to use a PTP connection to support high bandwidth and low latency, including: 

Creating a secure cloud or data center connection 

Offering secure WAN access 

Helping with large file transfers 

Protecting data with disaster recovery options 

Supporting critical application performance 

PTP provides a higher level of security because wireless point-to-point communication is highly encrypted and inaccessible to outside, third-parties. It’s also a cost-effective and time-saving solution that makes the most of your existing resources without needing to install cables and conduits or having to utilize an unsecured Virtual Private Network (VPN) to access public internet.
