Whether you're interested in receiving service at a single-family-home, or you're looking for a way to connect an entire building, understanding the Project Waves Network is the first step.

Point-to-multipoint wireless networks require a few things to provide optimal service. First, wireless signal depends on what's known as "backhaul"- this is the origin of service (in this case, fiber). Next, wireless broadcast equipment (sector antennae) must be mounted on highpoint locations with clear line-of-sight to surrounding homes. Finally, homes receiving service must be able to receive unobstructed signal from a sector antenna.
