It is common practice for Military, Public Safety, and Security forces to choose to deploy Microwave Line-of-Sight (MLoS) wireless solutions in tactical or austere environments due to the speed and efficiency afforded in setting up deployable networks. When designed correctly, MLoS systems provide nearly the same capacity and reliability as fiber and wired alternatives. In most cases, microwave point-to-point links are implemented in a matter of hours, dramatically faster than fiber and wireline alternatives. Additionally, wireless backhaul is a particularly attractive solution where completely private leased lines are not available. Situations like these are often found in locations where the local carrier is not a trusted partner, such as a tactical AOR.
