Outdoor Antenna Kits
These point-to-point antenna kits provide secure wireless building-to-building data communications at a 2 Mbps data rate at a range of up to 17 kilometers. The outdoor antenna solutions provide a flexible alternative to wired T1 and leased lines connecting multiple buildings in a campus or corporate environment. The antennas eliminate setup costs and monthly leased line charges and are available in both 2.4 GHz and 915 MHz frequency spectrums with a choice of security options. Each kit includes a WavePOINT II series wireless access point for connecting to both Ethernet wired and WaveLAN series external antenna modules, and a lightning arrestor. Four outdoor kits are available with a full one-year warranty. Prices: start at$2825.
