BridgeWave Communications: High-capacity and Gigabit Wireless Microwave and Millimeter Wave Backhaul Connectivity Solutions

BridgeWave delivers highly-reliable, cost-effective high-capacity and gigabit wireless solutions for mobile, carrier, service provider, enterprise, and government (including municipal and military applications) networks. High performance, lower costs, ease of operation and excellent wireless network security deliver a superior alternative to fiber-based solutions, including wireless backhaul and 4G mobile network requirements.

The company's 60 GHz and 80 GHz millimeter wave links offer up to ten times the bandwidth of license-free wireless links with added interference immunity. These products contain features such as AdaptRate™, AdaptPath™, built-in Ethernet switch and optional internal 256-bit AES encryption. BridgeWave's FE/GE/AR60 solutions operate in the license-free 60 GHz spectrum, while the FE/GE/BW/AR80 products operate in the lightly-licensed 70/80 GHz
frequency band.

BridgeWave's FL4G-UHA radio provides the benefit of the highest link budget in an 80 GHz solution, while offering Carrier-Ethernet functionality with QoS, VLAN, QinQ, ring protection and Ethernet OAM management. Simplifying installation, FL4G-UHA delivers full-duplex gigabit connectivity via copper or fiber with the convenience of SFP plug-in modules, while power is easily made via PoE... all in a compact, zero-footprint, all-outdoor solution.

BridgeWave's FlexPort® µWave products are the first licensed-band microwave solutions to enable full-rate gigabit connectivity in a cost-effective, single all-outdoor enclosure while providing carrier-grade Ethernet features.
FlexPort® µWave provides carriers and network operators a true future-proof backhaul solution without the need for additional hardware or a tower climb for full-rate gigabit transmissions.

BridgeWave's EtherFlex microwave products offer 100 Mbps - 364 Mbps full-duplex capacity in the licensed microwave frequency bands from 6 - 38 GHz. Employing all-outdoor architecture, Power-over-Ethernet, direct ODU-to-antenna mount and high power output, EtherFlex combines high-performance and low total cost of ownership in a licensed microwave solution to tomorrow's networks.

Setting the standard for product quality, BridgeWave employs Highly Accelerated Life Testing (HALT) during design and Highly Accelerated Stress Screening (HASS) during production to ensure the highest levels of product reliability and customer satisfaction. BridgeWave is a U.S.-based corporation headquartered in San Diego, California, and is an ISO 9001 registered company. The company has strong global presence with over 20,000 solutions deployed in more than 60 countries.
