B&B GhostBridge: 150Mbps Over 15 Kilometers

B&B Electronics announced its indoor/outdoor GhostBridge Wireless Ethernet Bridge. With a line-of-sight range of up to 15 km, the 5-GHz GhostBridge creates a transparent, secure point-to-point link at up to 150Mbps between two remote devices or networks, eliminating up to 15 km of expensive and damage-prone wiring.

Sold in pre-configured pairs, the GhostBridge requires no further configuration or software setup. Simply mount them, plug them into the network using the included PoE adapters, and then use the LED indicators to align them. A PoE pass-through Ethernet port also allows users to connect remote devices (IP camera or other) to a LAN.

GhostBridge features an 80-degree, 15-dBi sector antenna that's integrated into the housing, and a 5-GHz radio built from 802.11n 2x2 MIMO technology, for long-range (up to 15 km) connectivity between remote stations and a central office. Or, users can bridge two networks or hard-to-reach nodes together. The operating frequency is 5470-5825 GHz, and the unit consumes up to 8 watts of power.

GhostBridge comes pre-configured with WPA2, 128-bit security, and users can also configure it to other standards if desired. The two-unit bridge operates over a wide temperature range (-30C to +80C) and outdoor-rated, UV-stabilized enclosures protect the hardware. A pole mount is part of the molded outdoor enclosure, and there's an optional wall mount kit sold separately. Each unit measures 28 x 8 x 6 cm including the pole-mount brackets.

The package, available for $599, contains two GhostBridge wireless Ethernet bridges (a base station and a node), two AC PoE adapters with power cords, two DC PoE adapters with barrel plug adapters, four heavy-duty cable ties to secure the units and a quick-start guide. The optional GMT25 swivel wall-mount bracket is available for $19.
