We are looking at replacing some of our legacy bridges and I was curious to see what are others are using for wireless point to point links?

 

 

Thanks

We use Ruckus Wireless bridging. Works great in all weather, no hassle on setup since they can be married at the factory. I replaced one end from a lightening hit, setup was painless.

We have used a pair of Bridgewave GE60 units for years and they have worked well.

Depends on bandwidth you’re looking for and range. We use:

 

-          Exalt r5005 80 up/80 down, can be slid around within limit of 160 Mbps aggregate. Good range, measured in miles. Good value, easy config

-          Bridgewave Gigabit (60 series) shorter range- carrier grade. Pricey, but get what you pay for

-          Playing with Ubiquiti AirFiber- 1.4 Gbps over miles- cheap but if lives up to it’s promis could be disruptive at under $3K set

Lee, How far along are you re: the Ubiquiti AirFiber evaluation? I'm looking at that product for a couple short-hauls (< 2 miles). -Brian ________________________________________

We use the Ubiquity PowerBridge M5 units in multiple locations on our campus. They are a breeze to setup, they work in all weather, and the maintenance is low.
