The EZ-Bridge® Ultra5 is a high capacity 100Mbps and high power 250mW outdoor wireless bridge system operating in the 5GHz unlicensed spectrum. The complete system allows for ultra high bandwidth connections between 2 buildings up to 4 miles or more apart with good line of sight.
The EZ-Bridge® Ultra5 creates a transparent bridge between 2 sides and passes all network traffic including VPN and DHCP. You can think of it like connecting a CAT5 Ethernet cable between the 2 points.
It is the perfect high capacity plug and play solution for connecting the networks in two or more buildings, internet access sharing, remote video surveillance or remote network access. Multiple EZ-Bridge® Ultra5 units can be connected in a mesh configuration to allow interconnecting more than two sites.
The system supports 802.11n TDMA and 802.11a OFDM for backward compatibility. The advanced MIMO antenna system offers 22dBi of gain in a compact and visually pleasing package. The antenna also offers great front to back performance which helps reduce interference. A snap-on radome is included to protect the antenna from snow, ice, hail and crazy birds who sometimes like to nest in antennas.
With its password verification, MAC address authentication, SSID suppression and advanced WPA encryption, the system provides the best available wireless data security.
Installation is a snap because of the plug and play features which have been built into the system. Just install the antennas and plug in the power supplies. The units will automatically find their peer and create a secure wireless network link. If changes to the pre-configured settings are desired, they can be easily done thru the built-in web interface from any point on either side of the network. There are no drivers or software that need to be loaded to the computer.
The antenna can be installed with Vertical Polarization or Horizontal Polarization, depending on customer preference. The corrosion resistant bracket system allows mounting to a pole with up to 2.25" diameter or wall mounting using the included wall mount brackets. The bracket provides +/- 20 degrees vertical tilt and unlimited horizontal adjustment. The system comes with 24V Power over Ethernet power inserters and 2 rolls of shielded and outdoor rated 75' long CAT5 cable assemblies. The shielded outdoor cable helps to protect against EMI from lightning and ESD from wind.
The EZ-Bridge® Ultra5 comes complete with all the electronics that are needed for a point to point wireless network bridge installation; including two powerful 22dBi 802.11a/n MIMO antennas with built-in high power electronics, Bracket Kits which accommodate pole or wall mounting, 24V PoE (Power over Ethernet) power inserters and two 75' Shielded Outdoor Rated CAT5 cable assemblies.
The EZBR-0516+ management interface is IPv6 enabled, https enabled. Logon username is fixed. The password can be changed, and there are no rules for password length or content.
