Enterprises with multiple sites on a campus or in a metropolitan area must connect all local area networks reliably, and at high speeds.
Traditionally the answer has been to install cabling (if on a private campus), or to lease E1 or T1 lines from the local carrier or alternate service provider. There are, however, significant disadvantages to such solutions including:
Typically solutions use standard IEEE 802.11 wireless LAN technology, adapted for outdoor use, which operate in the unlicensed 2.4 GHz band, removing the need to acquire licenses or approval for individual use.
Using outdoor wireless solutions, enterprises gain the following benefits:
The antennas of these units must be aligned to provide radio coverage to all of the remote sites.
The access point is connected via a standard ethernet interface to the enterprise LAN at the hub site. At each remote site, a specialized outdoor wireless LAN station adaptor (also known as remote bridge) is installed.
