Point to point wireless Ethernet bridge, also known as fixed wireless backhaul, ptp wireless, or point to point microwave, is an ideal complement or replacement to leased lines and fiber. Whether the requirement is to link individual buildings, communicate between buildings, or link networks across large distances, organizations are increasingly turning to point to point wireless backhaul networks, both licensed microwave links and unlicensed wireless bridges, as the preferred solution. Point to point wireless backhaul provides several advantages:
- Increase Bandwidth - Up to Gigabit data/voice links (gigabit wireless)
- Extend Fiber & T1 Installations
- Lower cost of installation
- No recurring connection fees
- Reduce leased line dependency
- Quick installation—days instead of weeks or months
- ROI - Cost can usually be recouped in months
- Performance unaffected by environmental factors
- Advanced Security - DOD and HIPPA compliant
- 99.999% Reliability
Because there are no recurring lease fees to a phone company or service provider, outdoor wireless bridge networks in a point to point wireless backhaul configuration saves you money month after month. That, along with the modest cost of the outdoor wireless bridge equipment, is one reason that point to point wireless backhaul costs can be rapidly recouped. Once the wireless bridge equipment is installed, you own it and there are no other costs other than minimal routine maintenance.
Point to point microwave radios provide high quality network connectivity. Point to point wireless bridges can be both simple and inexpensive unlicensed wireless Ethernet bridges or true carrier grade (fiber replacement) licensed microwave links.
