New Wireless Outdoor Bridge Provides Bandwidth For HD Video And Data Transmission

30 NOVEMBER 2010 – MEL Secure Systems has announced the immediate availability of a new generation of wireless outdoor bridges.  Using the latest MiMo (multiple in/multiple out) technology with transmission rates of up to 300Mbps, it provides significantly improved performance over traditional bridges with the bandwidth required for streaming HD video and data in a wide range of security and IT applications. 

MEL’s new high performance wireless bridge uses the latest IEEE 802.11n 5GHz technology to give a range of up to 10 km.  The 300Mbps transmission rate enables use of the new generation of HD IP cameras and delivers high quality images with exceptionally low levels of latency that are not detectable in normal operational conditions.   This high transmission rate also enables operators to install double the number of cameras compared with traditional products whilst enabling bandwidth-hungry data applications, such as VoIP and video conferencing, to run simultaneously over the same networks.

Housed in a robust, IP68 certified aluminium die-cast enclosure, this wireless bridge is designed for outdoor use in the most challenging environments.  With twin integrated aerials, it provides reliable and resilient point to point and multipoint bridging as well as outdoor access point and client operation in a single ruggedised package.  It can be used for standalone networks or to extend the range of existing fibre networks as well as providing a quick and easy way to deploy temporary communications links for covert or overt operations.
