Product Info
*NEW* Low-cost, high throughput, 802.11AC wireless backhaul radio using TDMA protocol and 802.11AC technology, this 2x2:2 radio is a great option for short to medium range point to point wireless bridge between buildings.   Capable of 750+ Mbps throughput, this 802.11AC radio can serve less bandwidth hungry areas easily. 


Whats included in this point to point wireless bridge kit (complete link):

2x Outdoor 802.11AC Radio w/ Integrated 20dBi Antenna
2x Power over Ethernet Injector (PoE)
2x POE/Power Supply
2x 50ft. Shielded cat5e Ethernet Cable
2x Pole Mount Hardware for 1-2" OD mast
2x Universal Antenna Mounts

This building to building link is pre-configured and paired to each other, for "out of the box" installation and operation. External Signal LED's will assist with alignment and troubleshooting procedures. Maximum cat5e cable to be used on each end is 250ft. (Shielded cat5e is recommended).  1 year warranty includes technical support from GNS Wireless.


Installation:

This complete point to point wireless link ships pre-configured for "out of the box" installation. No configuration is required. Web based management allows for adjustment of transmit power, wireless security type, signal strength/signal noise reading, and real time throughput estimates. POE, PS, and pole mount hardware is included in the kit. Any 1-2" diameter mast/pole, will allow you to mount the antennas. If you require additional mounting hardware, please let us know.


Basic Description:

This 802.11AC Point to Point Wireless Bridge includes a pair of outdoor wireless bridge radios, that have an integrated 20dBi directional antenna.  When the outdoor radios are installed at each location, they operates as a transparent wireless bridge, and will pass all network traffic between your two locations. The Wireless network Bridge operates similar to an invisible Ethernet cable connecting your two locations. Each antenna has a beam width of about 14°, 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, and troubleshooting.  VLAN tagging will be passed over this bridge without the need of any additional configuration.  Voice and Data traffic will flow seamlessly over the wireless bridge.

This pair of outdoor 802.11AC antennas will link building to building networks, remote solar panels for off site viewing, internet sharing, remote voice (VoIP) networks, offsite video monitoring, connecting two wireless routers for internet or file access, and a multitude of other uses.  The link operates at layer 2, so there is no routing required, and no additional configuration needed.  Web based configuration allows you to log into the bridge antenna interface anytime and make changes, and view statistics.
 

Connection to Network:

To connect the bridge radio to your network at each location, a single Cat5 Ethernet cable is used. A 50ft. cable is included for each location. (If you need more cable, a maximum length of up to 250ft. can be used) The Cat5e Ethernet cable connects directly from the outdoor access point using a weatherproof grommet (included), 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

Maximum Range & Interference:

With clear, un-obstructed line of sight between your two locations, a maximum range of 1.5 miles can be achieved using this link at full speed.  Please note that this Point to Point Wireless Bridge operates between 5.1-5.8GHz.  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. 149 (5.7GHz) and CH. 161 (5.8GHz). Mount the outdoor access points as high as possible to further avoid any other 5GHz interference.

Each wireless bridge antenna 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...automatically!
 

For applications that require transfer of very large files, video transmission, or large amounts VoIP (Voice over IP) traffic (20 or greater), 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, higher packets per second (PPS) and lower jitter rates. A full duplex, Point to Point Wireless Bridge will also offer lower latency, which increases performance. For distances less then 3 miles, please ask us about the LIGOPTP-PRO, full duplex point to point link.
 

Security Features:

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 14°) the signal is not being broadcasted in all directions, only in the direction you aim the outdoor antenna.  If you have any other questions, please contact our Pre-Sales/Technical Support Dept. at (516) 214-0321.
