Point-to-Point Wireless Networking

Point-to-Point Wireless Networks are usually deployed between two locations that are in clear Line of Sight (LOS) with each other in other to maximize the performance of the wireless link.

Point-to-Point Wireless (P2P) is a communications connection between two nodes or endpoints. The two units communicate using either Time-Division Multiplexing to allow for Bi-Directional Traffic Flow. For fixed links, this can involve use of high gain directional antennas which enables long distance and high capacity links.

Installing a Point-to-Point Wireless Network can facilitate interconnecting two buildings connecting two IP Ethernet networks without trenching the area. This Point-to-Point Wireless Ethernet solution is very often used in campus environments or to connect two buildings sitting on two different sides of a street, railway, or river.

Point-to-Multipoint Wireless Networking (P2MP, PTMP or PMP): Point-to-Multipoint Wireless Networking is wireless communications accomplished via a distinct type of one-to-many connection, providing multiple paths from a single location to multiple locations.

When installing a Point-to-Multipoint Wireless Network, a central antenna or antenna array broadcasts to several receiving antennas and the system uses either Frequency Division Multiplexing or Time-Division Multiplexing to allow for Bi-Directional Traffic Flow.

Typically, wireless links are used for outdoor/multi-building applications, so the typical deployment includes outdoor access points with directional antennas. However, omni-directional antennas can be used at the root node, if multiple remote nodes are deployed in different directions.

Point-to-Point & Point-to-Multipoint Wireless Networks are often used for Voice, Data, and/or Video Security applications. Usually when the cost of Aerial or Buried Copper/Fiber is very prohibitive, or not an option at all.
