Part of the Cisco® Ultra-Reliable Wireless Backhaul solution, this entry-level wireless bridge enables backhauling of video, voice, and data. It provides a simple, out-of-the-box industrial-grade solution to create a reliable point-to-point wireless link with minimum installation time and maximum reliability. Featuring the same quality and reliability as all other Ultra-Reliable Wireless Backhaul products, the Cisco FM Ponte Kit sets a new standard for reliability and ease of use in the point-to-point wireless market.

Cisco® Ultra-Reliable

Prodigy 2.0 reliable wireless transmission for mission-critical applications

Our Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS)-based transmission protocol is built to overcome the limits of standard 802.11-based wireless protocols and to deliver an infrastructure with a higher level of reliability. At the base of our innovative transmission protocol is a traffic optimization algorithm that allows every Cisco FM radio to assign a specific level of priority and reliability to every packet transmitted. The result is a better, more reliable multiservice wireless infrastructure.

Up to 50 Mbps of usable throughput, even in high-interference areas

Thanks to a 2x2 Multiple-Input, Multiple Output (MIMO) radio chip, the Cisco FM Ponte Kit is capable of delivering up to 50 Mbps of usable throughput, even in high-interference areas, at a distance of up to 3 miles in line of sight.

Web interface to configure, monitor and troubleshoot the wireless link

The Cisco FM Ponte Kit includes the FMQuadro web interface, which allows you to configure, monitor, and troubleshoot the wireless link in real time without any additional software. To simplify the configuration of the wireless network, the radio has a built-in spectrum analyzer and a real-time bandwidth-monitoring tool.

Easy installation

The IP66-rated Cisco FM Ponte Kit is designed for low visual impact and easy installation in harsh environments. To facilitate installation, it has a two-cord watertight cable gland with a standard NPT-1 thread. This feature allows you to run premade Cat5/6 shielded cables or conduit directly to the radio. The highly visible LEDs show you LAN activity and signal strength, and the low-power Power over Ethernet (PoE) injector enables an easy setup.

Industrial grade and low power consumption

With an operating temperature range between -40°F and 176°F (-40°C and 80°C) and wind survivability of 120 mph, the Cisco FM Ponte Kit is designed to operate in the toughest outdoor conditions. In addition, its low power consumption of 8W makes it extremely friendly to low-voltage power sources such as solar panels, wind turbines, and portable batteries.
