Point-to-Point Wireless Bridge

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).
