How relay broadband works
Identical to satellite technology bouncing signals around our planet, Relay Base Stations work on the principle of bouncing a source signal to target locations using a series of long-range receivers and transceivers.
Once a broadband source is identified, plans are drawn to connect the locations via the most direct route. In rural locations, it is often impossible to create a linear path due to peaks and valleys or forestry areas. In such instances, signals are routed via Relay Base Stations, which can be installed in off-grid locations without damage to any land, and positioned in the ideal place for sending the signal to the target location.
The Relay Base Station can pick up and send a signal over 5Km in a single 'bounce'. This process can be repeated with minimal loss of signal strength, meaning that a cottage located at the end of a remote glen could receive a strong, secure connection.
