BridgeWave's high capacity wireless products are enabled by innovative transceiver, modem and digital signal processing technologies. BridgeWave's products utilize the licensed microwave radio spectrum in the 6 to 38 GHz range as well as the millimeter wave radio spectrum in the 60 to 80 GHz range, enabling multi-protocol SONET/SDH and gigabit Ethernet wireless connectivity at affordable price points.
BridgeWave's point-to-point wireless solutions offer high performance, cost-effective alternatives to fiber circuits for mobile backhaul, service provider, enterprise network extensions, and government / municipal network applications.
BridgeWave's wireless backhaul solutions provide fiber-equivalent connections between locations by transmitting data over microwave or millimeter wave frequencies with speeds from 100 Mbps to multi-gigabit with the advantage of add/drop data ports, Ethernet switching and optional wire-speed FIPS-certified 256-bit AES encryption built-in.
Our 60 GHz backhaul solutions yield full-duplex Fast Ethernet or gigabit Ethernet connectivity with optional AdaptRate™ for short range applications.
Our 80 GHz backhaul solutions yield full-duplex data rates up to 3 Gbps while providing TDM + IP, Advanced Ethernet switching and Ethernet OAM management required for backhaul of next-generation 4G and LTE networks.
Our 6 – 38 GHz microwave backhaul solutions are ideal for customers looking for medium to high-capacity connectivity at extended distances. These all-outdoor solutions are hardened for the most demanding environments, while requiring no indoor space.
Whatever your connectivity requirements, BridgeWave has the right product with the features and performance you need. Easily installed and managed, our family microwave and millimeter wave radio solutions combines high performance, high reliability and low total cost of ownership for years of worry-free performance.
