Watch a demo Video here or at YouTube (www.youtube.com/watch?v=-AK36bBswJA):
With a line-of-sight range of up to 15km, the 5 GHz GhostBridge creates a transparent, secure, high-speed (up to 150Mbps), point-to-point link between two remote devices or networks, eliminating up to 15km 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.
A PoE pass-through Ethernet port also allows users to connect remote devices (IP camera, or other) to a LAN. GhostBridge features an 80-degree, 15dBi sector antenna that???s integrated into the housing, and a 5 GHz radio built from 802.11n 2×2 MIMO technology, for long-range (up to 15km) connectivity between remote stations and a central office.
Or, users can bridge two networks or hard-to-reach nodes together.
The operating frequency is 5470 ??? 5825 GHz, and the unit consumes 8 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 if desired.
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 x 8.0 x 6.0 cm including the pole-mount brackets. The package, available for $599, contains two GhostBridge wireless
Ethernet bridges (a base station and a node), two AC PoE adapters with power cords, two DC PoE adapters with barrel plug adapters, four heavy-duty cable ties to secure the units and a quick-start guide. The optional GMT25 swivel wall-mount bracket is available for $19.
