Does extending fiber makes more sense than microwave in this case?
Folks, new facility (construction hasn't started yet).
I am planning to extend two conduits for fiber between building A and building B. My intention is to let the second conduit for redundancy in case the first one goes down the hill. Distance from building A to building B is about 400 feet.
Instead of extending fiber as the backup link, anyone there has seen microwave stations deployed instead? Does it make sense (from cost and reliability) stand point in this case? I figure that I would need less $10K to extend fiber at this distance so I would like to know if anyone there can imagine there microwave stations could turn out to be more cost effective than fiber.
