*NEW* GNS-1153N, Complete Point to Point Wireless Bridge that allows you to connect any 2 locations up to 1/2 mile apart. Unobstructed Line of sight is recommended. New features include ultra-slim line design, at only 1" thick! Faster throughput, multi-frequency support, high packet per second processing, and additional channel width options including 1/10/20/40MHz. This allows greater flexibility in high interference envirnments. The larger 20dBi gain integrated antenna will allow for a stronger signal between your two wireless bridge antennas.
The newly released slim line form factor of the GNS-1153N bridge kit package features a narrow outdoor antenna which reduces freight costs, and makes for a less obvious installation. 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.

Wireless Bridge Installation:
This 802.11N wireless 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. POE, PS, and pole mount hardware is included in the kit. 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.
Connecting the Wireless Bridge to your LAN:
To connect the Bridge 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.)
When clear, unobstructed line of sight is available, this GNS-1153N wireless bridge package has the ability to transmit up to 1 mile distance. For best results, we recommend no more than 1/2 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)
Security over your new wireless bridge:
The link is secured by using WPA/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 further reduce security threats.
GNS Wireless provides technical support on this device for the life of the unit. From pre-sales, to installation, to troubleshooting, you can call/email us directly for immediate, friendly technical support.
