Security at OptConnect

Security and data/network integrity are some of the most critical aspects of connectivity, but also one of the most difficult to navigate. As a managed service provider, OptConnect understands this, making security a core focus for our business.

Here are a few of the ways OptConnect helps ensure the security of customer communications and devices.

Signal Strength Linked In

Identifying Signal Strength and Interference

Ever wondered what makes signal strength weak or strong or how you can improve your signal strength? All cellular devices utilize a radio transceiver to communicate with a broadcast tower or repeater station. High quality signal reception is the key to reliable performance of your M2M (data only) cellular device.

It is important for consumers to understand that cellular network providers do not guarantee service or signal strength, and you may not be able to receive all types of cellular services or signals in all areas.

In this white paper, you'll learn:

  • How signal strength is measured (RSSI)
  • What can cause signal interference
  • The role of antennas in signal strength
  • How signal boosters work
  • And more
