Motorola has announced a new addition to its wireless ethernet bridge portfolio, the Point-to-Point 200 Series.
According to Motorola, its Point-to-Point (PTP) 200 systems are designed for customers who need a wireless bridge that can perform reliably in line-of-sight (LOS) or near line-of-sight (nLOS) conditions where obstacles partially block the radio’s line-of-sight. Operating in the 5.4GHz band, the PTP 200 wireless ethernet bridges are part of Motorola’s wireless broadband portfolio, providing users with data rates of up to 21Mbps and line-of-sight distances of up to five miles (eight kilometers).
The PTP 200’s orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) technology provides resistance to interference and fading while providing quick fade recovery. The PTP 200 is also equipped with GPS synchronization capabilities that reduce self-interference, which allow network operators to support collocation applications.
Robert Baker, general manager of the Point-to-Point product group at Motorola, said: The PTP 200 is an affordable solution that can help enterprises support applications requiring more bandwidth and enables wireless service providers to extend customer reach while increasing revenues.
With a fast return on investment, the PTP 200 is also ideally suited for building-to-building and campus connectivity, and backhauling traffic from multiple access points to a point of presence.
