This would be the time the data takes to be consumed and rebroadcast at a microwave tower, so you would multiply this number by the number of radio towers, and then add the speed of light for the aggregate distance covered between all the towers, and that would give you your theoretical latency between two geographic points in a microwave network.2 days ago• Like Follow TedTed Pascaru • Erik, you are correct. Thank you for the update. The only thing we can control is the latency from the Ethernet packet entering one IDU and exiting the other. Of course, there will be additional latency based on how far apart the link endpoints are spaced. When comparing to fiber optics, note that the speed of light in fiber is only 2e8 m/s. Therefore, a wireless link with our product can be lower latency than a comparable fiber run.NOTE I now post my TRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!
