Motorola Introduces Wireless Ethernet Bridge for 5.4/5.8 GHz bands

Motorola introduced a new Wireless Ethernet Bridge -- the PTP 300 Series -- that provides a point-to-point bridge over a line-of-sight distance of up to 155 miles, with near-line-of-sight and non-line-of-sight (NLOS) ranges of up to 25 miles and 6 miles respectively. Operating in the 5.4 and 5.8 GHz bands at data rates up to 25 Mbps, the PTP 300, which is part of Motorola's Wireless Broadband portfolio, also boasts the highest spectral efficiency and system gain for radios in its class, according to the company. In addition, customer and channel partners can use the new next-generation radio frequency (RF) planning tool -- PTP LINKPlanner -- to determine link viability and optimization in challenging environments prior to purchase.

Motorola also noted that the combination of Multiple-Input-Multiple-Output (MIMO) and intelligent Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (i-OFDM) enable the PTP 300 to support backhaul from multiple access points to a point-of-presence and building-to-building and campus connectivity.http://www.motorola.com
