SilverNet has added to its wireless network products with a 60GHz Shorthaul link.
The palm sized 60GHz license-free link is part of the Etherhaul range of products and can transmit video and data up to a distance of 500m and is available in 100 Megabyte or one Gigabyte bandwidth versions. It can be installed within minutes according to the makers on such street furniture as lampposts and traffic lights or on the side of buildings. An auto-alignment toolkit is available for installation engineers, with no telecommunications experience it is claimed, to align two antennas.
The 60GHz point-to-point wireless transmission link provides dedicated bandwidth, which does not get shared with other users and negates the need to utilise costly fibre networks or leased lines.
Christopher Ballard, Managing Director of SilverNet, says: “Shorthaul wireless transmission of video, as well as audio and data, has traditionally been achieved over the 5GHz frequency, but interference can become an issue where there are large number of radios in close proximity or where there are military installations close by. The good news is that the 60GHz frequency is uncongested, even in dense urban areas, and the use of a high-gain, pencil-beam antenna guarantees high spectrum availability.”
As with all the company’s Point to Point, Point to Multipoint and Backhaul wireless transmission products, the Etherhaul range can be managed via the free SilverView wireless network management and monitoring software (NMS).
