Definition – What does Point-to-Point Wireless Bridge mean?
In Wi-Fi networking, a point-to-point wireless bridge lets users wirelessly connect two or more locations together. This bridge enables users to share an Internet connection between two or more locations and to share files and other types of data across the network.
The bridging mode in Wi-Fi networking enables communication between two or more wireless access points (APs), with the intention of connecting multiple local area networks (LANs).
RSAIANet explains Point-to-Point Wireless Bridge
Several Wi-Fi bridging mode solutions are available with varying functionality levels. Some wireless bridges support just a single point-to-point connection to another AP, whereas some others have the ability to support point-to-multipoint connections to various other APs.
Typical applications include the following:
Connecting two or more locations or buildings together
Devices that need high-speed performance from 100 mbps to 10 Gbps, full duplex
Connections that offer 99.99% availability
Functioning in line-of-sight scenarios
Temporary installations or rapid lead times
Quicker and cost-effective fiber replacement or leased line
Parking garage video surveillance
Circumnavigating geographical barriers
Some key features of point-to-point wireless bridge are:
High potential with lightning speed
Simple and easy installation
Effortless network management
Flexible and versatile
Line of Sight?
Hopefully you have established the buildings you want to connect. What is really important is that you can get line of sight from one building to another. If line of sight is clear then great, no need to read and more of this paragraph. If you don’t have clear view between the two locations then there are ways to overcome this. The use of a mast to gain a height advantage or you may want to have a tree that is obscuring the view cut down or trimmed (they do grow back though). It may also be possible to create a ‘dog leg link’ where a third location is used that both locations have line of sight to. Distance between the two locations?
It’s worth as soon as you know the two locations you want to link putting them into google maps and having a look at the distance involved. While distance is unlikely to put an end to any plans for a link as most distances can be overcome, it will be deciding factor is the radio that right for your project.
Our solutions is depend on your requirement and budget either you want a normal to high end gigabit bridging
