WiFiBridges for point-to-point links and point to multipoint links

WiFi Bridges are used in the following applications:

  • Point-to-multipoint bridges: Antenna-type used is typically sectoral or panel antenna, but yagi antennas can be used.
    • For long point-to-point to multipoint links to end-users (such as a marina): RocketM2 with a large 2.4GHz sectoral antenna
    • For long point-to-multi-point links to locations such as a building: Use Ubiquiti RocketM5 with a large 5GHz sectoral antenna
    • Point-to-multipoint bridge using Ubiquiti NanoSation M5 (5GHz) passing signal through 3 or 4 walls in an apartment building with NanoStation M5 on each end

If you are not an expert, and you are experimenting with trying to make a very long-distance link: Try this:

  • Use signal booster with a high-gain antenna on one end. Test and if it's not enough signal-strength; put a high-gain antenna on both ends.
  • If it's not enough signal-strength: Put a high-gain grid antenna (such as the A24 Grid Antenna above-left) on both ends.
  • 4Gbps throughput achieved by 4x4 MIMO, Dual Link, Beamforming & "Auto Everything" technologies:
  • Range up to 100-km. Throughput over long distances of approximately 1Gbps, even with congestion in 5 GHz band
  • See link examples: Range and throughput
  • We can project throughput for your point-to-point link requirement
