OIAP is a free community broadband Internet access provider in a white area. The Internet access is over a wireless MAN (Metropolitan Area Network).

The unified WAN is consituted of several Internet links : Point-to-Point wireless, LTE, and Starlink Internet access.

The unified bandwidth of the Point-to-Point links reaches 40 Mb/s to 100 Mb/s. The LTE link can reaches 60 Mb/s. And, Starlink can reaches 300 Mb/s. This bandwidth is shared on a wireless MAN of about 4.5 km².

How it works ?

WIFI type radio technologies are suitable for the implementation of broadband service networks.

The advantage is to make up for the shortcomings of the ADSL network in certain areas.

To put it simply, we take the Internet where it works to take it where it doesn’t : From collection points, we transport the internet connection to the white areas. This is thanks to a network of wifi antennas installed in the community.

Expert in the development and implementation of Radio technologies, OIAP has become a free Internet access provider for these spaces, called white areas.

For the little story : WIFI base stations are present on both sides of the territory. These make it possible to provide a broadband internet connection within a radius of several kilometers. To take advantage of this, we provide our users with an antenna, installed at their home. This mode of data transmission takes place over the air. This is what allows you to surf freely and without constraints on the web!
