BridgeWave wireless links provide ‘future proof’ gigabit capacity to support both today’s and tomorrow’s applications, without risking costly backbone network replacements. These ultra-low latency links support voice, data and video traffic (including real-time IP camera control) even when traversing multiple radio hops. By using 60-90 GHz spectrum for the backbone, the 4.9 GHz allocation for access can be preserved to provide the highest possible capacity for wirelessly-connected users and devices. BridgeWave’s built-in Ethernet add/drop port allows connecting wireless access points or IP cameras directly to the BridgeWave network backbone without the need for external Ethernet switches. BridgeWave also empowers mesh network deployments by providing high-capacity, low-latency data insertion points throughout the mesh deployment, eliminating backhaul bottlenecks. BridgeWave backbones can be configured in hub-and-spoke or back-to-back repeater configurations, or for the ultimate in network availability, they can be deployed in redundant ring and mesh topologies.
