Outdoor Wireless Bridge Enables Edge Device Connection

Firetide : 21 May, 2010  (New Product)
Firetide's latest range of outdoor wireless Ethernet bridges bring the possibility of gaining edge device connection to wireless mesh networks
Firetide has announced the immediate availability of its new outdoor wireless Ethernet bridges that redefine price-performance characteristics in the point-to-point space. The Firetide Wireless Bridge 100 (FWB-100) is software configurable for 2.4, 5 and 4.9 GHz and achieves up to 35 Mbps of throughput in 1 to 2 mile links, with US list prices of under $1,000 for 2.4 GHz band and under $1,500 for 4.9/5 GHz bands.

"We plan to use the new Firetide wireless bridge for small-scale wireless applications and also for getting edge device components onto a mesh network. We had an opening for several point-to-point wireless Ethernet links on an important project and decided to fill the need with the Firetide bridge because of the high performance and reliability that we've seen with Firetide's other products. The price is also a selling point," said Hector Sanchez, Network Systems Division estimating and sales lead, Bonneville Contracting and Technology Group, San Juan, Puerto Rico. "We are also currently quoting an Intelligent Transportation System project in which we are proposing the wireless bridge and Firetide's MIMO wireless infrastructure mesh equipment."

This bridge is optimized to provide high-capacity and low-latency connectivity for demanding data, voice and video applications. The product line is aimed at core Firetide markets: municipalities, public safety, industrial installations and campus environments. In addition to these markets, this product opens up new opportunities for Firetide, especially in the wireless Internet service provider and telecom operator space.

"Combining performance, security and reliability for which Firetide is known, the new bridges are a very attractive solution as a remote link into a mesh network or as a standalone configuration," said Bo Larsson, chief executive officer of Firetide. "For Firetide, the product line is a natural expansion of our core wireless infrastructure technology and business and represents new market opportunities as well."

Firetide's expertise in large-scale wireless mesh networks for video, data and voice applications in harsh environments ensures that its bridges are optimized to provide the highest performance, security and reliability in the industry. Deployed as a standalone solution, the FWB-100 link is managed via a browser-based management interface. Customers can also integrate the FWB-100 links into a larger Firetide mesh network for a scalable end-to-end solution managed by HotView Proâ„¢ network management software. Designed for an easy "out-of-the-box" installation experience, the unit is shipped preconfigured and with all accessories included. Firetide also provides alignment tools to make installation and management easier.

FWB-100s are available in two outdoor configurations. The FWB-102 provides two FWB-100 nodes with built-in 2.4 GHz antennas. The FWB-105 includes two external antennas for 4.9 and 5 GHz. Both models include a web-based management interface.
