Wireless Bridge Kits
What is a wireless bridge? Long story short, it’s a wireless link between two or more locations. Sometimes called a point to point wireless bridge or a point to multi-point wireless bridge and many things in between. Basically it’s faster easier and cheaper than running a long ethernet cable. You can share your Internet with all of your buildings without having to dig trenches and run wire! Finally the Internet in the shop and the guest house.
We offer three Wireless Bridge Kits we call them Hempler Speed Kits as we have done all the hard configuration work for you, speeding up your project and getting your remote location online fast! Each pair is expertly configured in WDS Transparent Bridge Mode with a randomly generated unique WPA Key. Once they are connected the remote building is now on your local network.
The key thing to determine which Hempler Speed Kit is right for you is what your line of sight is. Line of sight can get complicated but basically if each transmitter can see each other with nothing in between then you have a clear line of sight. Now, there is a little more to it than that, but we are keeping this basic.
Use this table to determine which Hempler Speed Kit is best for your line of sight conditions. Remember that the closer the transmitters are to each other the less of a factor, line of sight will be and the easier the wireless bridge will link.
|Line of Sight||Network Speed||Distance||Frequency Band||Which Kit|
|Clear- Little to no obstructions||Super Fast-Up to 450Mbps||Up to 6 Miles||5 GHz||HSK-PTP-NS-L5AC-WPS|
|Mostly Clear – Light obstructions||Fast-Up to 150Mbps||Up to 3 Miles||2.4 GHz||HSK-PTP-NS-LOCOM2|
|Obstructed||It works-Up to 20Mbps||Up to 1 Mile||900 MHz||HSK-PTP-NS-LOCOM900|
Normally the 5GHz frequency band is pretty unforgiving when it comes to obstructions, so if you have anything more than a few thin branches in your line of sight, go with the 2.4GHz frequency band which is much more forgiving and can handle light cover in most cases.
If you have heavy cover, don’t even bother with anything other then the 900Mhz frequency band. While it doesn’t have the bandwidth of the 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequency bands it is amazing what it can create a wireless bridge through.
