As the Technical Support Manager here at AvaLAN Wireless, I talk to customers on a day in, day out basis. Over time I have learned several valuable tricks to help make troubleshooting easier. Today I'd like to share one of those with you.
A Wireless bridge is the most convenient way to connect two or more LAN sections without the use of Ethernet cables, which run between two separate LAN segments. Various local area networks can be linked without any wire because of this hardware device. Many IT professionals generally use the technical term named as wireless LAN to LAN bridge instead of the wireless bridge.
At AvaLAN Wireless, we have done our best to design our products in such a way as to push the limits of possibility, sometimes even venturing into the realms of the unfathomable. However, the Laws of Physics and the Universe still govern much of what we can and cannot do. We still have limits. The trick to making the most of our products is to know those limits. Knowing your limitations is not just beneficial to your project, it is crucial to its success. Knowing your limitations will save you time, money, effort, and especially frustration.
Point-to-Point (PTP) communication and Point-to-Multipoint (PTMP) communication may be lesser known terms to common users, but they hold great significance in the field of telecommunications. Two-way radio is a classic example of PTP communication. On the other hand, radio and television broadcasting are examples of PTMP communication. Both the communication systems have their distinct capabilities and a few limitations as well. The following section introduces you with the two and their applications.
Wireless “Mesh” networks are all the rage these days, gaining a reputation among customers of various industries where fixed wireless Ethernet installations are required. The allure is great, we get it. The idea that a professional design and installation company can buy multiple radios with mesh networking firmware and scatter them wherever they need an Ethernet device and then connect them back through the mesh to the head end network location. It sounds as simple as hitting the easy button but it has proven to be both tall on excitement and small on performance. Whether it’s a PLC or IP camera, the “magical mesh theory” that promises to make challenging installations simple and reliable has bitten many a professional installer in the backside.
