BridgeWave's point-to-point wireless solutions offer high performance, cost-effective alternatives to fiber for mobile operators, service providers, enterprises, and governments.

BridgeWave's wireless backhaul solutions provide fiber-equivalent connections between locations by transmitting data over microwave or millimeter wave frequencies with speeds from 100Mbps to over 10Gbps with the advantage of add/drop data ports, Ethernet switching, high-speed Ethernet ports up to 10Gbps, and optional wire-speed FIPS-compliant 256-bit AES encryption.

Our 60GHz backhaul solutions yield full-duplex gigabit Ethernet connectivity with optional AdaptRate™ and AdaptPath™ for short range applications.

Our 80GHz backhaul solutions yield full-duplex data rates up to 5.35Gbps per radio and over 10Gbps in a 2+0 configuration. Solutions are available that support Ethernet, TDM, and CPRI traffic, as well as mixed Ethernet and CPRI or Ethernet and TDM traffic. The BridgeWave 80GHz radios support Advanced Ethernet switching and Ethernet OAM management required for backhaul of next-generation 4G/5G networks.

The BridgeWave 6–38GHz microwave backhaul solutions are ideal for customers looking for medium to high-capacity connectivity at extended distances. These all-outdoor solutions are hardened for the most demanding environments, while requiring no indoor space.

Whatever your connectivity requirements, BridgeWave has the right product with the features and performance you need. Easily installed and managed, our family of microwave and millimeter wave radio solutions combine high performance, high reliability and low total cost of ownership for years of worry-free performance.
