Product Info

Best Short Range Wireless Ethernet Bridge | Complete Plug-N-Play Link

GNS-1163AC is a complete PTP wireless link, operating at 802.11AC speeds for reliable wireless connection between your two locations.

The High-Capacity 802.11AC Wireless Bridge will allow you to connect 2 buildings up to 1/4 mile (or more) apart. Unobstructed Line of sight is recommended to make use of the 80MHz channel width.  Use these antennas as a temporary fix to connect two locations, or use it as a permenant connection.

The antennas on this building to building wireless bridge kit are installed outdoors, and feature an ultra-slim form factor, at only 1" thick! They will support speeds up to 500Mbps at 80MHz channel width, multi-frequency to avoid interference, and high packet per second processing for video and voice support.  This wireless bridge has integrated surge protection and gigabit POE injectors included.  The tiny 15dBi gain integrated antenna is barely noticable when mounted on a wall or mast.  Easy installation and with an all plastic design, there is no risk of rusting.  Easily paint them to match your siding, or wall color.

The GNS-1163AC Ethernet bridge package features a narrow outdoor antenna which makes for a less obvious installation.  These antennas are ideal for residential installations where the smaller, is better.  Mounting on a side of homes and offices are now more easily installed and less visible to the end user.  Mount the antenna higher up on the pole, reducing antenna weight.  The new antenna enclosure is all plastic design, with no metal parts making it lighter and corrosion resistant.

Whats included in this long range wireless bridge kit (complete link):

2x Outdoor Radio w/ Integrated 15dBi Panel Antenna
2x Power over Ethernet Injector (Gigabit 24V PoE)
2x POE/Power Supply
2x 20ft. Shielded cat5e Ethernet Cable
2x Pole Mount Hardware for 1-1.5" OD mast

The building to building wireless bridge antennas are 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.  Stream movies, netflix, share internet, and view remote video cameras, and surveillance systems over your new 802.11AC wireless bridge.  The speed you have at the sending location, will be the speed you see at the receive location.  This link will pass DHCP, VLAN traffic, and voice between 2 or more locations.  For more throughput and less latency, please view our line of commercial grade PTP links.

Wireless Bridge Installation:

This 802.11AC wireless bridge ships pre-configured for plug-n-play 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. POE, PS, and pole mount hardware is included in the antenna package. Any 1-1.5" diameter mast/pole, will allow you to mount the antennas. If you require additional mounting hardware, please let us know.  Each antenna will ship with a default IP address for web based management.  Using any internet browser, you can log in to see the configuration and performance of the link.  The adjustable mounting bracket allows for fast, easy installation onto a pole, or flat wall surface using the GNS-1433 recommended mount.

Wireless Bridge Connection:

To connect this point to point wireless link to your network at each location, a single Cat5 Ethernet cable is used. GNS Wireless includes a 50ft. cable 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, to an indoor POE (Power-over-Ethernet) injector. The POE injector plugs into a standard 120VAC outlet for power, and another Cat5 Ethernet cable connects from the POE injector to your network (Router/PC/Switch etc.)

PTP Maximum Range:

When clear, unobstructed line of sight is available, this GNS-1163AC wireless bridge package has the ability to transmit up to 1 mile distance.  For best results, we recommend no more than 1/4 mile distance.  If you have a shorter distance, with trees or other obstructions in the way, this wireless bridge kit will still operate effectively, although we would recommend your range to be less than 500ft.  (density of trees will reduce throughput speed).  For shorter distances of less than 500ft., this 802.11AC wireless bridge can penetrate brick walls and still maintain a usable connection.   Ideally, please try to mount the antennas outdoors for best results.  For longer range up to 1 mile, use the GNS-1153AC.  For higher speed, and longer distance, use the GNS-1155AC.

Wireless Bridge Encryption:

The 802.11AC wireless bridge link is secured by using WPA2 AES encryption techniques. Passphrases can be changed at your discretion, but because of the focused signal beam coming out of the antennas, your wireless transmission is not being broadcasted in all directions, keeping the link more secure.  You can also add additional MAC filtering to this building to building wireless bridge kit to further reduce security threats.

GNS Wireless Technical Support:

GNS Wireless provides technical support on this building to building wireless bridge kit for the life of the unit. From pre-sales, to installation, to troubleshooting, you can call/email us directly for immediate, friendly technical support.
