ClearFiber™ – Enterprise-Grade Internet Delivered in 7-10 Days

What to Expect in a ClearFiber™ Fixed Wireless Installation

Not sure what to expect from a fixed wireless installation?

Let’s start with an overview of fixed wireless technology. Simply put, fixed wireless provides high-speed direct Internet access using radio waves to create a point-to-point link from a wireless network tower antenna to a dish with a radio on a building roof. Because there are no underground connections involved, fixed wireless technology is deployable in a fraction of the time and cost of a standard terrestrial fiber connection.

It takes 30-60 days to install fiber and that’s only if your business location is already lit (i.e. connected to fiber). If you need to fiber to be deployed to your building, construction can delay your installation to 90-120 days and sometimes longer.

When you sign up for our award-winning ClearFiberTM fixed wireless Internet, you can get high-speed Internet service with speeds up to 10 Gigabits per second (Gbps) in as few as 24 hours, but typically five to 10 days.

How can we install ClearFiber fixed wireless so quickly? We’ve broken down our installation process into five easy steps, so you know what to expect before you sign on the dotted line.

 

Step 1: Qualify Service Availability

Your service request is sent through a serviceability qualification process wherein GeoLinks’ staff verify that ClearFiber fixed wireless service is available in your area.

 

Step 2: Order & Contract

Once serviceability has been confirmed, an official order request is sent to GeoLinks’ Quotes Team to prepare contracts for e-signature.

Once contracts are signed and returned to GeoLinks, an in-house project coordinator is assigned to your account and will follow-up with the following documents:

  • Roof Access Form
  • On-site Contact
  • Site Readiness Questions

 

Step 3: Pre-Installation

Once all documents are completed and submitted, your order is moved to our engineering department, where the circuit is designed to fit your business needs, based on the specs laid out in your contract.

Then, your order goes to the fulfillment department, which makes sure that we have the equipment (e.g. radios and dishes) required for the installation. The fulfillment department also pre-configures or programs the radios for your installation.

Next, our dispatch department will reach out to your on-site contact with the soonest available date time of arrival for installation.

We’ll work to meet your scheduling needs, but installation date from order confirmation is typically between five to 10 business days. We usually schedule multiple installations in the same campus on the same day. Separate locations typically are scheduled and rolled out one at a time.

 

Step 4: Installation

On the day of the installation, GeoLinks’ project coordinator will call 30 minutes in advance of our team arriving. When our in-house technicians arrive, they will meet with your point of contact and confirm that we have access to the server room and roof and secure approvals to proceed.

GeoLinks’ technicians then transport the weatherproof fixed wireless radio dish – usually two- or three-feet in diameter –to the top of your building and secure it to the roof.  To do this, we use a non-penetrating, flat mount with rubber matting between the mount and the roof to protect the roof. The mount is weighed down by bricks to keep it stable. Weatherproof CAT-5 cabling is strung from the radio dish to the handoff inside the building. We’re typically able to drop cables through the ventilation system, so that we don’t need to drill.

We take care to position the mast and dish low so that it is not noticed by passersby on the sidewalk at ground level.

The installation typically takes two to four hours. Once installed, our technicians take pictures of the radio and share them with you, so that you’re aware of the radio location without having to climb to the roof. We then conduct a speed test with you live in-person to verify the installation was successful.

Before GeoLinks’ technicians leave, we obtain a signature indicating your approval that the deployment is in working order.

 

Step 5: Post-Installation Follow Up

Following the installation, our project coordinator will send you IP information with confirmation of the successful installation. Our customer service representative will contact you to verify there are no issues and our billing department will then invoice for the installation and first month of service.

 

Contacting Support

From here on out, if you ever have a need to contact customer support, simply submit a trouble ticket at the form available at our Support page and we’ll get back to you in four hours or less.

If you have an immediate need, and support can’t wait, call us at 1.888.225.1571 to speak with a GeoLinks’ representative.

Not All Connections Are Created Equal

With the sudden surge in remote work and distance learning, internet connectivity has been put to the test. As we predicted, shared circuits in residential areas have been stretched beyond their limits with web surfing and video streaming competing for bandwidth with videoconferencing and large data uploads.

These slowdowns are not unexpected. Most residential internet circuits were not designed to accommodate the increased levels of activity they’re experiencing, which rivals that of enterprise-grade broadband circuits typically used by businesses.

Additionally, the vast majority of residential internet customers share a connection with their neighbors so bandwidth must be divvied up amongst all the households that are connected to it. While these connections fit the needs of residential customers under most normal circumstances, conditions are far removed from normal at the moment.

Subscribers to GeoLinks’ ClearFiber network have not experienced any slowdown, whatsoever. Our Fixed Wireless service provides every customer with a dedicated connection, eliminating the need to share and guaranteeing high speeds that are unaffected by the activity of any neighboring circuits.

Clearly, not all internet connections are created equal. GeoLinks’ Fixed Wireless guarantees speeds and provides residential and business customers with additional advantages, such as fast installation (5-7 days) and 99.999 percent uptime.

ALERTWildfire Collaborates With GeoLinks to Deploy Fire Detection and Prevention Systems Across California

ALERTWildfire Partners With GeoLinks to Deploy Fire Detection and Prevention Systems Across California

CAMARILLO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–ALERTWildfire, a consortium of three universities — The University of Nevada, Reno (UNR), University of California, San Diego (UCSD), and the University of Oregon (UO) — announced today it has officially partnered with California-based Telecom, GeoLinks, to deploy Wildfire Detection, Prevention, and Situational Awareness Systems across the state of California. With ample endorsement from the United States Forest Service (USFS), the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), California’s new Governor-elect Gavin Newsom, and a multitude of utilities and state counties, the project demonstrates the future and next step in advanced firefighting and suppression.

Demand for the rapid system expansion was inspired by a new wildfire camera pan-tilt-zoom technology (PTZ), developed by Graham Kent, Director of the Nevada Seismological Lab at the University of Nevada, Reno, that became instrumental in both the response and containment of the 2017 Lilac Fires in San Diego County. GeoLinks plans to deploy 28 additional PTZs by year’s end.

“ALERTWildfire is excited to work with GeoLinks as their resilient communications network throughout California enables a rapid deployment of fire cameras in critical regions of the state,” said Kent. “No other service provider is able to scale to this urgent task, and we look forward to dozens of cameras to be installed month-after-month as we ready ourselves for December 2018 and fire season 2019.”

Collocated across GeoLinks’ vertical assets in greater LA-Metro, Orange County, Riverside County, and Ventura County, the data collected from the PTZ cameras will be backhauled over GeoLinks’ ClearFiber™ network to WIFIRE at the San Diego Supercomputer Center in UC San Diego. WIFIRE, an integrated system for wildfire analysis, analyzes data collected from these cameras to create real-time simulations, wildfire path predictions, and visualizations of wildfire behavior. Ultimately, the system will provide strategic advantages for early fire detection, situational awareness for first responders, fire mapping, predictive simulations, and evacuation planning.

UC San Diego has already identified the next wave of key sites for GeoLinks to connect post initial project completion. Skyler Ditchfield, co-founder and CEO of GeoLinks, notes that with the comprehensive coverage of fixed wireless broadband that will accompany the camera network, LTE-based data connectivity and the extension of all first responder handheld radio systems can be efficiently added to close all connectivity gaps.

“The fact remains that California is now faced with wildfires year-round,” stated Ditchfield. “Wildfire detection, prevention, and situational awareness systems provide a solution that could make an immediate, lasting, and radical impact on the spread of fires and associated costs, damages, and casualties. GeoLinks, ALERTWildfire, and a variety of other affiliates across the state, including CENIC, are actively pushing the state-wide expansion of these technologies. If we had assets installed prior to the Camp Fire’s ignition, for example, we could have saved countless lives. This is really the future and next step in advanced firefighting and suppression.”

GeoLinks: Connecting Clients with Innovative Telecom Solutions

GeoLinks: Connecting Clients with Innovative Telecom Solutions

Headquartered in Southern California, GeoLinks is a leading telecommunications company, competitive local exchange carrier, and regulated public utility, nationally recognized for its innovative Internet and Digital Voice solutions. The company delivers Enterprise-Grade Internet, Digital Voice, SD-WAN, Cloud On-ramping, Layer 2 Transport, and both Public and Private Turnkey Network Construction expertly tailored for businesses and Anchor Institutions nationwide.

GeoLinks’ accelerated success is largely due to its flagship product, ClearFiber™, which offers dedicated business-class Internet with unlimited bandwidth, true network redundancy, and guaranteed speeds reaching up to 10 Gbps. Named “Most Disruptive Technology” in the 2018 Central Coast Innovation Awards, GeoLinks’ ClearFiber™ network is backed by a carrier-grade Service Level Agreement boasting 99.999% uptime and 24/7 in-house customer support. With an average installation period of 4 to 7 days, GeoLinks is proud to offer the most resilient and scalable fixed wireless network on the market.

Recognized as a thought-leader in closing the digital divide, GeoLinks proudly sits on an array of national boards, coalitions, and working groups including the Schools, Healthcare & Libraries Broadband (SHLB) Coalition, the Wireless Internet Service Providers Association (WISPA), the Broadband Consortium of the Pacific Coast (BCPC), and the FCC’s Broadband Deployment Advisory Committee’s (BDAC) Streamlining Federal Siting Working Group.

The Passionate Leader 

Born in Ojai, California, Skyler Ditchfield is the Cofounder and CEO of GeoLinks, which is the No. 1 Fastest Growing Fixed Wireless ISP in the country, and Inc. Magazine’s Fastest Growing WISP in America. Nationally recognized for its innovative Internet and Hosted Voice Solutions, and dedication to closing the U.S. Digital Divide, GeoLinks is determined to bring connectivity to every unconnected Anchor Institution in America over the next seven7 years.

To accomplish this goal, Skyler is aggressively looking to change the landscape of Internet across America by influencing the reform of broadband funding and spectrum policy on both the state and federal levels. Believing that action fuels influence, Skyler led GeoLinks to successfully connect more schools than any other ISP in both 2016 and 2017 and was an instrumental lobbyist in the passing of AB1665, the Internet for All Act, which brought $330m in new funding to the state of California.

Within his company, Ditchfield is passionate about cultivating the best company culture around—one that combines respect, collaboration, and a “best idea wins mantra.” Both his dedication to closing the digital divide and commitment towards developing an exceptional company culture have won Skyler a variety of accolades including “World’s Top 5 Best Businessmen of 2017”, “Top Innovator in Diversity and Inclusion,” and “2018 Entrepreneur of the Year”.

Thriving on Challenges 

According to GeoLinks, the telecom industry is heavily dominated by multi-billion dollar virtual monopolies that receive massive tax credits and federal subsidies. Furthermore, the regulatory landscape and funding on both the state and federal level are tilted heavily to favor these “incumbent” providers—furthering their “perceived” monopoly status. However, GeoLinks thrives on challenges, and are aggressively working to reform and overcome these obstacles. GeoLinks’ ongoing strategy is to out-maneuver incumbent providers in competitive markets nationwide by providing a quality of service they can’t offer and maintain, and by going after businesses they either don’t want or can’t service. It’s in GeoLinks’ DNA to consistently innovate new methods and technologies that pushes it far ahead of the crowd.

Tackling Bad Patches and Preparing for a Better Future 

In its early days, cousins and co-founders Ditchfield, CEO, and Ryan Hauf, CTO, decided that they will build their Internet Service Provider (ISP) business model to compete head-tohead with all the big guys—which was not very traditional for a smaller ISP provider. GeoLinks decided that to be successful and to make its goal of becoming a major national carrier a reality, they needed to penetrate the most competitive markets.

Over the past seven years, GeoLinks’ innovative flagship product, ClearFiber™, named “Most Disruptive Technology” in the 2018 Central Coast Innovation Awards, the organization’s superior customer service, and its industry leading Service Level Agreement has led the organization to become the fastest growing telecom in California.

When reflecting on the company’s rapid growth, Ditchfield comments that every struggle has been unique in its needs and solutions. In the beginning, many of these hurdles were finance-based, as the telecom didn’t have a significant financial backer. The organization had to remain as fiscally responsible as possible and fold all its revenue back into the company. As a business, it has learned that being honest and putting customers first always pays off in the long-run. So even in the case of a wrong step, GeoLinks has admitted it, fixed it, and been able to move on swiftly.

In the near future, you can expect to see GeoLinks continuing to expand rapidly delivering gigabit and multigigabit access to new markets across the United States. This also includes working on new technologies and experimental spectrum to deliver gigabit speeds to residential clients. Furthermore, leadership plans to partner with like-minded organizations to expand into sensor networks and specific projects that encompass public safety, research, education, and much more
