BridgeWave this week introduced a new family of gigabit wireless systems that it says can deliver high-availability wireless links over distances of up to 2 miles.

The point-to-point wireless producsts, called the 80-GHz Extended Range (GE80X) and AdaptRate 80-GHz Extended Range (AR80X) systems, use extended-range antennas to deliver point-to-point gigabit speed wireless over unlicensed outdoor spectrum. BridgeWave says the new systems deliver "four-nines" availability, making the wireless systems a good alternative to wired leased-line setups.

New two-foot antennas on the systems reach 40 percent farther than previous BridgeWave products, making them suitable for enterprise connectivity as well as network operator access applications, BridgeWave said.In the enteprise scenario, companies use the fixed point-to-point wireless links for interbuilding extensions of their LAN infrastructure.

The GE80X and AR80X products are available now starting $36,900 and $39,900, respectively.
