WiBACK employs a centralized architecture, with one network controller that inherits the intelligence of the system. This controller configures the network. It controls and manages the WiBACK Nodes, the radio links set up between these and all traffic that runs over the network. One controller is needed per network.
An example of a typical network is depicted below. The links are typically between 1 and 20km and multiple spots are provided with various services. Since there is no Line-of-sight (LOS) between some of those spots solar powered rely nodes are additionally deployed.
Due to WiBACK’s self-configuration the deployment of a WiBACK network is ex-tremely easy and does not require any special trained staff. Besides mounting the nodes, pointing the antennas and, if required, connecting the solar cells, everything else is done by the WiBACK controller.
