Motorola Expands Wireless Ethernet Bridge Portfolio

Motorola introduced an addition to its Wireless Ethernet Bridge portfolio -- the Point-to-Point (PTP) 200 Series 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.

The PTP 200 Wireless Ethernet Bridges operate in the 5.4 GHz band providing users with data rates of up to 21 Mbps 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 virtually instant fade recovery. The PTP 200 is also equipped with GPS synchronization capabilities that significantly reduce self-interference, which allow network operators to support collocation applications. In addition, Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS) detects radar-based users in the band and automatically switches to a non-interfering channel.http://www.motorola.com
