Moving on beyond the world of just powering smartphones, Sprint today took the wraps off a project bound to be of interest to many business users small and large — a fixed-wireless broadband solution Sprint is calling the 4G Enterprise WAN offering. We are not exactly disinterested observers this time around, since Sidecut Reports has written a white paper for Sprint on the offering, which you are free to download from the Sprint site.
With that caveat in mind, we can still objectively say that the 4G Enterprise WAN offering interested us from the first time we heard about it. Basically it’s a combination of 4G and 3G wireless antennas that are blended together to allow for business-class uptime to accompany the lower cost and greater flexibility that a wireless connection can allow. If you are a business of any size looking for a quick way to add Internet access in any location (but especially so in places where the wait for a wire in the wall may be prohibitive) then read the white paper and see if this solution makes sense for you.
