Wireless Ethernet Bridge delivers data rates up to 21 Mbps.

Press Release Summary:

Operating in 5.4 GHz band, Point-to-Point 200 Series provides reliable and secure wireless connectivity in line-of-sight or near line-of-sight conditions. Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing technology provides resistance to interference and fading while providing instant fade recovery, and GPS synchronization capabilities reduce self-interference. Additionally, Dynamic Frequency Selection detects radar-based users in band and automatically switches to non-interfering channel.

Motorola Expands Wireless Ethernet Bridge Portfolio to Offer Customers More Options

Motorola's New Point-to-Point 200 Solution Makes Wireless Broadband Connectivity More Affordable than Ever

SCHAUMBURG, Ill., Sept. 17 -- Motorola Inc. (NYSE: MOT) today announced a new addition to its innovative and cost-effective Wireless Ethernet Bridge portfolio -- the Point-to-Point (PTP) 200 Series. This solution provides enterprises and service providers with reliable and secure wireless connectivity, while the low cost of ownership makes it affordable to even the most restricted budgets.

Motorola's PTP 200 systems are designed for customers who need a wireless bridge that can perform reliably in line-of-sight (LOS) or near line-of-sight (nLOS) conditions where obstacles partially block the radio's line-of-sight. Operating in the 5.4 GHz band, the PTP 200 Wireless Ethernet Bridges are part of Motorola's Wireless Broadband portfolio, providing users with data rates of up to 21 Mbps and line-of-sight distances of up to five miles (eight kilometers).

"This latest addition to Motorola's portfolio of Wireless Ethernet Bridges further broadens the number of radio options available to our customers," said Keith Bergstrom, vice president of sales, 3-db Networks. "The PTP 200 systems feature many of the technologies found in higher-tier models, providing network operators with a dedicated, secure broadband Internet connection that offers significant communications advantages while helping keep costs down."

The PTP 200's Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) technology provides resistance to interference and fading while providing virtually instant fade recovery. By successfully penetrating through foliage, passing around buildings or other obstructions that can partially block the radio's line-of-sight coverage, these robust wireless bridges deliver excellent performance for applications that require up to 21 Mbps throughput. The PTP 200 is also equipped with powerful GPS synchronization capabilities that significantly reduce self-interference, which allow network operators to support collocation applications. In addition, Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS) detects radar-based users in the band and automatically switches to a non-interfering channel.

A simple network design allows PTP 200 systems to complement existing networks and integrate easily with web-based and SNMP-based management systems, as well as the Canopy(R) Prizm and Canopy Network Update Tool (CNUT) systems. The radios are exceptionally easy to install with built-in installation and deployment assistance features that make deployment quick and easy.

"The PTP 200 is an affordable solution that can help enterprises support applications requiring more bandwidth and enables wireless service providers (WISPS) to extend customer reach while increasing revenues," said Robert Baker, general manager of the Point-to-Point Product Group, Motorola. "With a fast return on investment, the PTP 200 is also ideally suited for building-to-building and campus connectivity, and backhauling traffic from multiple access points to a point of presence."
