Wireless Ethernet Bridge
|802.11N Point to Point Wireless
Ethernet Bridge. Up to 150Mbps Aggregate data
rate. 29dBm transmit power with adjustable
output for closer installations. Integrated
11dBi 2x2 MIMO panel antenna, external alignment
LED's. Includes WEP/WPA/WPA2 Security, Power
over Ethernet - Complete Link
This complete link
ships pre-configured for "out of the box" installation. No
configuration is required. Web based management allows for
adjustment of TX/RX power, Security type, signal strength/signal
noise reading, and real time throughput estimates.
This 802.11N Point to Point
Wireless Bridge includes a pair of outdoor access points, that
have an integrated 11dBi directional patch antenna built into
the enclosure. A small
enclosure is required at each location, which includes the
antenna and access point, as shown above. Once the AP's are
installed at each location, the Wireless Bridge operates as a
transparent bridge, and will pass all network traffic between
your two locations. The Wireless Bridge operates similar
to an invisible Ethernet cable connecting your two locations.
Each antenna has a beam width of about 15°, so aligning the
antennas is easy. Furthermore, you will have the ability
to view real time signal strength, link quality, and noise
level, using the web based configuration. Each AP has a
static IP address, used strictly for web based configuration,
Connection to Network:
To connect the access
point to your network at each location, a single Cat5 Ethernet
cable is used. A 25ft. cable is included for each
location. (If you need more cable, a maximum length of up
to 200ft. can be used) The Cat5 Ethernet cable connects
directly from the outdoor access point using a weatherproof
grommet, to an indoor POE (Power-over-Ethernet) injector.
The POE injector plugs into a standard AC outlet for power, and
another Cat5 Ethernet cable connects from the POE injector to
your network (Router/PC/Switch etc.)
At the MAIN location,
you will typically connect to an open LAN port on the back of
your existing router, or switch. At the REMOTE location,
you can connect either directly to a PC if you only have a
single computer, or you can connect to an indoor wired/wireless
router. This will allow you to run multiple computers over
the wireless bridge. See Diagram below.
Maximum Range & Interference:
With clear, un-obstructed line of sight between your two
locations, a maximum range of 1000ft. can be achieved using
this link. Please note that this Point to Point Wireless
Bridge operates between 5.3-5.8GHz. If you plan on
installing more then one link at the same location, you want to
avoid interference between each Point to Point link by using
separate channels such as CH. 60 (5.3GHz) and CH. 149 (5.7GHz).
Mount the outdoor access points as high as possible to further
avoid any other 5GHz interference.
Each access point has a 29dBm maximum
output power. This works great for long distance
Point-to-Point applications, as well as Client applications.
Power can be scaled back for closer installations to avoid
noise issues and to meet local regulatory requirements.
For applications that require transfer of very large files, video
transmission, or large amounts VoIP (Voice over IP) traffic, it is recommended that
you choose a FULL DUPLEX, 5GHz Point to Point link, which will
not only avoid all
2.4GHz interference, but offer much faster throughput, and lower
jitter rates. A full duplex, Point to Point Wireless Bridge
will also offer lower latency, which increases performance.
For distances less then 2 miles, use the following full duplex
This Wireless Point to Point bridge operates as a transparent
bridge. It is similar to an invisible Ethernet cable
connecting your two locations. It includes multiple
security options including WEP/WPA/WPA2. It also has
ability to enable MAC address authentication so that only the
two access points are able communicate. You can hide the
network SSID, and because the beam width of the antennas is
directional, (about 15°) the signal is not being broadcasted in
all directions, only in the direction you aim the outdoor
