Introducing the new MetroLinq 5 LW
IgniteNet is pleased to introduce the new MetroLinq 5 LW. The MetroLinq 5 LW is a dual-band concurrent, dual-radio wireless bridge ideal for PTP and PTMP applications. When used in conjuncton with a MetroLinq 60GHz base station, the MetroLinq 5 LW is perfect for connecting clients on fixed 5GHz service – especially where there is nLOS or longer distance connections needed. Other applications include short to mid-range (up to 10 km/6.2mi) wireless bridging with a 2.4 GHz radio dedicated to local Wi-Fi access perfect for hotspot applications, management, and advertising – all from the same device.
Introducing the Metrolinq 60 LW
IgniteNet’s MetroLinq 60 LW changes the economics of low-cost 60GHz PTP and PTMP connections. With a 60GHz range of up to 150m (0.1mi) as well as built-in 5GHz failover, it can provide reliable high throughput in the harshest conditions. It also has the advantage of being license-free in most markets, allowing ultra-fast deployment and without the hassle of other frequency bands. The MetroLinq 60 LW also includes a third 2.4 GHz radio which can be configured a multi-tenant AP for applications ranging from hotspots to maintenance and many more. The new MetroLinq is really small and light weight making it even easier to deploy on a crowded urban areas. The LW is available in 2 different variants - one in which the 5GHz radio is connected to a directional antenna for backup purposes and another where it is connected to a omni for access purposes.
