April 29, 2011 – B&B Electronics has announced its indoor/outdoor GhostBridge
wireless ethernet bridge. With a line-of-sight range of up to 15 km, the
5 GHz GhostBridge creates a transparent, secure, high-speed (up to 150
Mbps) point-to-point link between two remote devices or networks,
eliminating up to 15 km (about nine miles) of expensive and damage-prone
wiring.

Sold in pre-configured pairs, the GhostBridge requires no
further configuration or software setup; simply mount them, plug them
into the network using the included PoE adapters, and then use the LED
indicators to align them.

 The GhostBridge ethernet
bridge from B&B Electronics


 

GhostBridge features a 80-degree, 15 dBi sector antenna integrated into
the housing, and a 5 GHz radio built from 802.11n 2×2 MIMO technology,
for long-range (up to 15 km) connectivity between remote stations and a
central office. Or, users can bridge two networks or hard-to-reach nodes
together. A PoE pass-through Ethernet port also allows users to connect
remote devices (IP camera, or other) to a LAN. The operating frequency
is 5470 – 5825 GHz, and the unit consumes eight watts maximum power.
 
Pre-configured with WPA2, 128-bit security, the GhostBridge provides
secure, point-to-point data transmission. Users can also configure it to
other standards. The two-unit bridge operates over a wide temperature
range (-30 to + 80°C) and outdoor-rated, UV-stabilized enclosures
protect the hardware. A pole mount is part of the molded outdoor
enclosure, and there’s an optional wall mount kit sold separately. Each
unit measures 28 by eight by six centimeters, including the pole-mount brackets.
