End Users

Evolution of wireless communications inevitably leads to change of the landscape of and relationships within the entire wireless industry. While in the past it was not uncommon for wireless operators to provide [in-building] wireless solutions as part of service offering, today everything has changed.

Not only operators do not have resources to provide indoor coverage solution for all venues that need it, but with shift away from long term contracts it simply no longer makes financial sense for operators to invest in a single operator in-building solution. It is a new reality that end users – be it commercial real estate, hotel, small business office or place of residence – become responsible for providing indoor cellular solution just like they do for other life essential utilities.

Internet search for “indoor coverage enhancement”, “DAS” or “Wireless Solution” will return hundreds of pages majority of which are paid commercial ads for various wireless products or technical solutions. How do you find not only what you need, but what is right for you? Something that not only will be right investment of your dollars for years to come, but is legal, priced right and just what you need?

Most of our competition has dedicated relationship with a particular equipment vendor. At Linkwave we are technology agnostic. From day one our company was built with a goal to become the leader in providing services rather than choosing solution with high profit margins.

We hope that information on these pages will help you become educated about your choices. If you have any questions or would like to meet with us to discuss your project, we are just a phone call away. We will spend as much time as you need to help you understand your options and help you choose the right solution.

Commercial Real Estate

Business and residential lessors are placing tremendous emphasis on mobile voice and broadband coverage inside their venues to enhance the Lessor, Tenant and Visitor experience, and it has become a prime objective for building owners and management companies that have the responsibility for leasing activity. 

In the past, cellular networks were often installed to provide coverage only in lobbies and communal spaces and coverage in the upper floors of high-rise buildings was not a design priority. Today’s lessees have multiple choices in commercial office space and robust mobile broadband coverage is an increasingly important criterion for space selection.

The need by demand of today’s subscribers to connect seamlessly over multiple devices concurrently at any given time promotes Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies which motivate building owners and managers to provide wireless service within their buildings to help differentiate their offering from other buildings.

While, traditionally, interest to Distributed Antennas Network is driven by motivation to enhance only cellular coverage, one important, potentially money and time saving point missed by venue owners is that other wireless problems inside the venue can be all solved at the same time: cellular networks, private or public safety two-way radio systems; High Density Wi-Fi Networks – they all operate on the same principles of Distributed Networks. It will often make technical and financial sense to have your wireless distributed antenna networks’ needs addressed all at once, developed and maintained by one company.

Linkwave has technical knowledge and expertise, excellent working relationships and solid reputation with cellular and public agencies service providers to be your link to reliable wireless solutions.

We certainly hope that you will not just take our word that “we can” – we invite you to call us to ask us any questions may have about your next wireless project or industry in general. We love talking to our customers as through these discussions we learn about what matters to you and how we can position ourselves to serve you better.

Hospitality Industry

The technology demands of hotel guests have evolved rapidly in the past few years. Just a few years ago, low bandwidth Wi-Fi service to support laptop connections was considered adequate to meet the needs of mostly business travelers. Today both business and personal leisure travelers expect a seamless wireless experience – no dropped mobile calls and high bandwidth wireless connectivity – from the moment they leave the taxi, through the hotel lobby, up the elevator and into their room. 

These expectations exist because people experience changes in cellular and other wireless networks people experience wherever they go. Wireless experience has become as important feature affecting traveler’s hotel choice decision as hotel amenities and comfort of hotel bed. Along with traditional “hotel features” travelers’ reviews websites, there are new sites rating hotels by wireless experience.

A number of hotels are pilot testing wireless check-in feature which are expected to be widely deployed in a near future. Hotels often turn over hundreds and larger ones thousands of rooms a day. Eliminating check-in lines will certainly help hotel business and increase satisfaction of the traveler.

Requirements to wireless networks in common and conference rooms areas are even higher than in a hotel room. Many hotels have wireless networks built with outdated network design approach, running on outdated hardware. Such networks simply do not meet the needs of hundreds of users, many with more than one wireless device, simultaneously demanding high speed access. Linkwave Wireless Solutions, a leader in providing Outdoor and Indoor Wireless Distributed Networks, has knowledge and experience to design and maintain networks to enable advanced mobile and cellular connectivity throughout the venue. 

Linkwave Wireless works with the wireless service providers (WSPs) like Bell, Rogers and Freedom Mobile to ensure that their 3G and 4G LTE broadband wireless services can be enabled in the shortest time-frame on the distributed networks. Our close relationships with WSPs may even help find a way to reduce or eliminate cost to the venue.

Whether you are looking for someone to implement your ambitious plans to make sure that you are ready for tomorrow or you need to test how well your existing wireless infrastructure handles tasks of today, give us a call – we are your link to reliable wireless solutions.

Business Users

Businesses are placing tremendous emphasis on mobile voice and broadband coverage. Desktop phones, even VoIP based ones, have been becoming obsolete for supporting communication needs of today’s business landscape. Many will agree that if there are two phone numbers available for someone in your Contacts list, the one we are likely to call first is a mobile number.

Not only have our jobs become more mobile, but the idea of leaving voice message has become less appealing over the past few years. The need by demand of today’s subscribers to connect seamlessly over multiple devices concurrently at any given time promotes Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies which make environment without strong wireless connectivity almost unimaginable in today’s office environment. Many businesses, however, still seem to miss the importance of wireless networks coverage in the office, both cellular and Wi-Fi.

Poor cellular connection quality problems may be as obvious as having to stand by the window to make phone calls, but may be masked by an apparently acceptable device’s signal strength bar indicator.

Wi-Fi devices can also show full bars connection, but in reality suffer from poor speeds due to outside interference, poorly designed or outdated networks or combination of both.

Linkwave has technical knowledge and expertise, excellent working relationships and solid reputation with cellular and public agencies service providers to be your link to reliable wireless solutions. We certainly hope that you will not just take our word that “we can” – we invite you to call us to ask us any questions you may have about your next wireless project or industry in general. We love talking to our customers as through these discussions we learn about what matters to you and how we can position ourselves to serve you better.

Residential Users

We know how frustrating it is to miss calls, have to stand by the window or even go outside to be able to use your cellular device. While there are plenty of those who claim to have the next best thing to solve your residential cellular coverage connectivity, we are the only ones who have the only cellular booster solution authorized by national wireless operators.

While wireless boosters being widely available through many retail sources create an impression that it could be used just like another house “appliance”, it is far from true. For those who don’t have time to dig into technical details now, we can quickly summarize that Industry Canada requires that all installations of devices intended to interact with wireless networks of cellular service providers have to be approved by wireless service providers. Unlike Wi-Fi networks, frequencies on which cellular service provider operate are licensed, which means Bell, Rogers, Freedom and Telus pay significant license fees to have the right to use air waves exclusively for their services. 

As unauthorized devices pose significant risk to cause interference on the network, Industry Canada protects licensees’ privileges by this regulation. Service providers have the right to demand to shut down any unauthorized device operating on their licensed frequencies.

To help protect the investment that you have made in improving cellular coverage inside your home, we offer the only cellular booster solution authorized by national operators. Not only is the solution we offer intelligent and sophisticated enough to be approved by national cellular operators, but it will also be installed and configured to provide you with the optimal quality of service. We also promise that it won’t break the bank – the product is highly affordable and it usually takes less than an hour to install without the mess other boosters come with – no cables to install, no holes to drill in your walls and no antennas to mount on your roof.
