Antaira Technologies’ AMY-5133-AC-PD Wireless Access Point/Client Bridge supports net data rates up to 867 Mbits/sec. The device’s radio broadcasts 5 GHz, 802.11a/n/ac signals for use in point-to-point and point-to-multipoint wireless data applications, which the company says accommodates high-density transmissions between buildings and over large areas.

It is available standalone for MSRP $199, or as a kit that comprises two preconfigured units. The kit’s bridges will automatically locate their peer to create a secure, long-range wireless link, Antaira emphasizes. Administrators can change the preconfigured settings via the web interface on either side of the network.

Powering options are IEEE 802.3af/at (PoE, PoE+), or an external 12 VDC power supply. It can be wall- or pole-mounted in temperatures ranging from -30 to +45 C (-22 to +113 F).

“The AMY-5133-AC-PD combines a rugged yet compact plastic housing with an integrated high-gain, 14dBi MIMO directional panel antenna and is powered by a Qualcomm 802.11ac chipset featuring MU-MIMO technology,” Antaira adds. “Together, these features decrease the time each device must wait for a signal and dramatically speed up the network, improving the transmitting and receiving of multiple data streams even in RF-congested sites. The 128 MB of RAM and an additional 16 MB of flash memory make the AMY-5133-AC-PD ideal for applications demanding higher capacities.”

Each device is embedded with an HTML web GUI so they can be managed anywhere on the network through a browser. Alternatively, for basic installations, switches on the device make it possible to set up a bridging pair without having to access the software.
