B&B Electronics Launches GhostBridge High-Speed Wireless Ethernet Bridge



B&B Electronics Manufacturing Co., Inc. has announced its indoor/outdoor GhostBridge Wireless Ethernet Bridge. With a line-of-sight range of up to 15 km, the 5 GHz GhostBridge is designed to create a transparent, secure, high-speed (up to 150 Mbps), point-to-point link between two remote devices or networks, eliminating up to 15 km of expensive and damage-prone wiring, the company said. 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 is 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 5,470-5,825 GHz, and the unit consumes 8 watts maximum power.

Pre-configured with WPA2, 128-bit security, the GhostBridge provides secure, point-to-point data transmission. Users can also configure it to other standards if desired. The two-unit bridge operates over a temperature range of -30 to +80 degrees C) and outdoor-rated, UV-stabilized enclosures protect the hardware. A pole mount is part of the molded outdoor enclosure, and there is an optional wall mount kit sold separately. Each unit measures 28 x 8.0 x 6.0 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.
