***Permanently discontinued from manufacturer.*** The only 900 MHz Point to Point we carry in stock is now the GNS-1138HP.
Whats included in this point to point link:
2x Outdoor Radios w/ 11dBi Integrated Antenna
2x Power over Ethernet Injector (PoE) | 10/100
2x Power Supply
2x 50ft. Shielded cat5e Ethernet Cable
2x Pole Mount Hardware for 1-1.5″ OD mast
Bridge antennas are pre-configured 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)
The 900MHz Wireless Ethernet Bridge is powerful link when used appropriately. 900MHz has great penetration for Non-Line of sight applications, however they are very vulnerable to interference from other devices (cordless phones, remote controls). It is recommended to mount the antennas as high as possible on both your locations, and determine if any other hand held transmitting devices are present before Wi-Fi installation.
This Outdoor 11db Integrated Access Point can be mounted outdoors, and can be powered through the integrated Power-over-Ethernet adapter that comes with the unit. If you are looking to connect multiple locations, but have obstructions such as trees in the way, then this bridge kit is the ideal solution. The outdoor antenna needs only a single Ethernet Cable connected to it, making your installation fast and easy. Bridge your wireless network together up to 1 mile away, and gain access to sharing files, videos, or other data.
The 900MHz access point can be placed up to 300ft. away from your network, with only a single cat5 cable connecting to it. This makes your network Installation easier to install and maintain. Each Access Point will be configured as a Bridge, and will only communicate with each other. This means a safer, and more secure network connection for your LAN. No other rogue laptop user will be able to pick up the signal between your two points.
This Wireless Bridge is connecting at a frequency of 900MHz, which means if you have trees or other obstacles in the path of your Point-to-Point connection, you will still have a strong and solid connection. Simply mount the enclosure outside in the direction of your remote location, connect the cat5 network cable to your LAN, and you’re ready for connectivity. This bridge includes security measures of 40 and 128bit WEP, Media Access Control, and WPA.
VLAN Trunking: Typically a switch uses port based VLANs. This means that whatever is plugged in to Port X, belongs to whatever Port X is in. Each frame is tagged with a VLAN tag in the layer 2 header when entering a VLAN switch port. These frames run across trunk links between two switches and between a switch and a router. The tag is stripped down when the frame is sent from the outgoing switch port to the end device. Remember that the native VLAN frames (by default VLAN 1 in Cisco and many other devices) are NOT tagged.
When you use a radio link, or wireless bridge on a VLAN trunk, there are some things to remember:
You must use a transparent bridge or the trunk will be unable to form. Remember, L2.5 bridging rewrites the layer 2 header. (This bridge operates as a transparent bridge, when in bridge mode)
The radios included in this wireless bridge (and many other wireless devices) are not switches and are not VLAN aware. Therefore, tagged frames in the trunk will be ignored by the devices.
The VLAN tag is 4 bytes long. This means that the maximum Ethernet frame size goes from 1518 bytes to 1522 bytes. Any devices on the trunk link needs to be able to pass these frames. This Wireless Bridge, with up to date firmware, can pass VLAN tagged frames.
