The Cisco Aironet 350 Series Wireless Bridge enables high-speed long-range outdoor links between buildings and is ideal for installations subject to plenum rating and harsh environments. It is designed to meet the requirements of even the most challenging applications, with features including:
Fixed Wireless Solution
Designed to connect two or more networks (typically located in different buildings), the Cisco Aironet 350 Series Wireless Bridge delivers high data rates and superior throughput for data-intensive, line-of-sight applications. The bridges connect hard-to-wire sites, noncontiguous floors, satellite offices, school or corporate campus settings, temporary networks, and warehouses. They can be configured for point-to-point or point-to-multipoint applications (see Figures 1 and 2) and allow multiple sites to share a single, high-speed connection to the Internet. For functional flexibility, the wireless bridge may also be configured as an access point.
The high-speed links between the wireless bridges deliver throughput several times faster than E1/T1 lines for a fraction of the costeliminating the need for expensive leased lines or difficult-to-install fiber-optic cable. Because bridges have no recurring charges, savings on leased-line services quickly pay for the initial hardware investment. Wireless bridges connect discrete sites into a single LAN, even when they are separated by obstacles such as freeways, railroads, and bodies of water that are practically insurmountable for copper and fiber-optic cable. Combining powerful 100-mW radios, industry-leading receive sensitivity, installation tools to assist in bridge placement, delay spread capabilities, and a broad array of directional and omnidirectional antennas, Cisco provides a complete solution for a wide variety of fixed wireless applications.
