What is Point-to-Point Wireless? If you have ever tried to enhance or set up a network at your business’ location, you may have heard the term “point-to-point wireless.” These kinds of systems refer to data connection setups that exist between two end points, delivering wireless connectivity through an optical laser or radio waves.

Today, point-to-point wireless systems are used to connect sensors, CCTV cameras, buildings, devices, and anything else that requires reliable data connections. A point-to-point wireless setup can be used to provide a direct link for both long-range and short-range data connections.

When we set up point-to-point wireless connections here at Network Connections, we usually install a radio device or an antenna at both ends of the link. This device then gets connected to existing cabled infrastructure to achieve a wireless bridge between each point.

How far a wireless bridge can extend depends on how much data throughput you need, as well as the specific application. However, you can typically extend the distance of a connection device by daisy chaining or hopping. Additionally, the best wireless bridge for your location will depend on your specific application, your desired availability, and your throughput requirements.
