Chapter 2: Introduction to Spectrum Bands, Protocols and Channel Widths

This chapter discusses some of the more common spectrum bands, protocols and technologies available for use by a WISP, and their relative advantages and disadvantages.

Chapter 1 discusses the fundamentals of radio, and you learned that data is modulated across the air at a given frequency. With modern radios, it is often possible to broadcast multiple feeds at once, often spaced across a series of sub-channels. This chapter will discuss some of the more common spectrum bands available for use by a WISP, and their advantages and disadvantages. It will then discuss different technologies that may be utilized to take advantage of these spectra and the concept of “channel width” to determine how much bandwidth one can expect in different frequency bands and channel width combinations.
