Wireless Links

Wireless Links
The point-to-point wireless topology (also called P2P) is the simplest network architecture you can set up in order to connect two locations using a wireless radio link. Point-to-point wireless links can go from a short-range link connecting two locations just a few hundred meters apart to a long range point-to-point wireless link that connects two locations tens of miles away from each other. In a point to-point-wireless link, distance is affected by the height of each Ethernet radio device, the frequency used, the power level, and environmental interference.

Point-to-point Wireless

Point-to-point wireless links are often used for telecom, security and networking applications. In the telecom space, point-to-point wireless links are deployed to backhaul cellular base stations. Cellular backhauls typically employ licensed spectrum and high capacity long-range point-to-point microwave links. However, with the widespread deployment of small cells, license-free, long-range point-to-point wireless links are being used more and more often, particularly in rural areas where interference is not a significant concern.
