Definition - What does Point-to-Point Wireless Bridge mean?
In Wi-Fi networking, a point-to-point wireless bridge lets users wirelessly connect two or more locations together. This bridge enables users to share an Internet connection between two or more locations and to share files and other types of data across the network.
The bridging mode in Wi-Fi networking enables communication between two or more wireless access points (APs), with the intention of connecting multiple local area networks (LANs).
Several Wi-Fi bridging mode solutions are available with varying functionality levels. Some wireless bridges support just a single point-to-point connection to another AP, whereas some others have the ability to support point-to-multipoint connections to various other APs.
Typical applications include the following:
Connecting two or more locations or buildings together
Devices that need high-speed performance from 100 mbps to 10 Gbps, full duplex
Connections that offer 99.99% availability
Functioning in line-of-sight scenarios
Temporary installations or rapid lead times
Quicker and cost-effective fiber replacement or leased line
Parking garage video surveillance
Circumnavigating geographical barriers
