The primary Internet connection, where there is a reliable and preferably
high-bandwidth Internet connection, is called a Hub. Subscribers within an
initial radius of the hub can access the Internet on a standard real-time
wireless Local Area Network (wLAN). Depending on the population size and
concentration, this wLAN can be expanded into a real-time wireless Wide Area
Network (wWAN) up to 5-15 km.
The unique capability of FMS's technology is its ability to distribute
the Internet connection's bandwidth to the last 100km – the Village Area
Network (VAN) – with relatively small infrastructure costs. The same VAN-APX
access points can be mounted on any vehicle (buses, motorcycles, boats…) which
physically transports data to/from surrounding rural areas within a day's reach
of the Internet connection.
