Q

Becoming a Wi-Fi service provider

Can you recommend some material where I can learn more about the technical/product requirements for wireless ISP

while considering WLAN equipment and software? Here are a few resources that may help you learn more about becoming a Wi-Fi service provider:

  • The Wi-Fi Alliance Wi-Fi Zone Provider Page

  • Best Practices for Wireless Service Provider Roaming (WISPr)

  • ISP-Planet Fixed Wireless How-To Handbook

  • Boingo Hotspot Operators Partners Page

    Start by deciding what kind of wireless services you want to offer. Do you want to be a Wi-Fi hotspot provider, offering wireless Internet access to subscribers that visit your location? Or do you want to be a fixed wireless service provider, using point-to-point wireless to link subscriber sites to your point-of-presence? Then you can do more homework to learn about the equipment, expertise, and business relationships that you will need to deliver that type of wireless service.
