The D-Link Long Distance Wireless Outdoor Bridge is designed to provide long distance wireless connectivity in areas where a wired network infrastructure is prohibitive. The integrated Intel® IXP Networking Processor operates on non-licensed spectrums, offering low cost, durable, and reliable outdoor wireless broadband connectivity. When operating with an unobstructed line-of-sight, the D-Link wireless backhaul solution is able to achieve connections at distances of up to 40km. These impressive ranges are possible through the application of a TDMA modification to the MAC layer of standard 802.11.
Extend Your Network
The DAP-3760 and DAP-3860 Outdoor Bridges are designed for harsh outdoor environments, providing highly reliable, stable transmissions, and excellent performance in almost any setting. A 23dBi antenna ensures transmission quality while Intel TDMA allows the bridges to attain speeds of up to 8Mbps at distances of up to 100km (using relay). The DAP-3860 uses two radio cards with link aggregation technology to double throughput for point to point operation.
An Affordable Backhaul Solution
The D-Link Long Distance Wireless Outdoor Bridge offers a reliable alternative to backhaul solutions such as WIMAX and GSM. When rugged terrain prevents the installation of a standard wired network backbone, a wireless outdoor bridge can be deployed. In fact, a 5GHz wireless solution is ideal in sparsely populated areas where electronic interference is minimal. An outdoor bridge can be installed with minimal additional cabling thanks to Power over Ethernet capabilities.
Connect Rural Areas to the Internet
The DAP-3760 and DAP-3860 Outdoor Bridges can be used to connect urban hubs with rural endpoints. Internet access is deliverable via one or many intermediate nodes as part of a flexible architecture that is simple to deploy, manage, and maintain. Security over these distances is assured through the use of WEP, TKIP, and AES encryption schemes.
Keep Even the Most Remote Users Online
A wireless backhaul installation can provide network access for remote offices and academic buildings areas that cannot be reached by cable. For instance, rural medical clinics can use the system for telemedicine applications, to exchange vital patient data with city hospitals and health care centers.
