Founded in 1999 by veteran technology executives from the high-performance wireless industry, BridgeWave delivers highly-reliable,cost-effective high capacity 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, making them the most feature rich millimeter wave solutions on the market today.
BridgeWave's carrier-grade, point-to-point wireless FlexPort® links provide a cost-effective, future-proof mobile backhaul solution for "greenfield" 4G network deployments or for carriers and mobile operators looking to migrate from existing TDM-based 3G networks to next generation IP-based 4G/LTE/WiMAX networks. 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 Featured Product
FlexPort provides operators with a future-proof single all-outdoor solution that allows for connectivity of today's TDM-based mobile base stations, while enabling migration to higher capacity, IP-based transport for tomorrow's 4G networks. This flexibility allows an elegant and cost-effective migration from the capacity needs today towards the expanded requirements of 4G tomorrow. BridgeWave's FlexPort platform of high capacity radio systems smoothly enables n transition by carrying both TDM and IP traffic natively without the mandate for pseudowire or other third party devices. With the use of a single radio, operators can combine their 4G backhaul needs with their existing backhaul networks resulting in an extremely cost effective and easy to manage solution.
BridgeWave's FlexPort solutions are available in the licensed 18 and 23 GHz microwave bands for medium range connectivity, as well as the 80 GHz millimeter wave bands for short haul deployments
