Designed for use in nearly any environment, the LigoPTP 5N RapidFire Outdoor Wireless Point-to-Point Bridge from LigoWave comes encased in a IP67 rated cast aluminum enclosure.

Once installed, this wireless bridge supports the W-Jet V wireless protocol and features a MIMO 2x2 radio allowing multiple devices to connect with ease. Furthermore, the bridge covers frequencies ranging from 4.900 to 6.100 GHz and comes compatible with a variety of OFDM modulation schemes. Connect the antennas of your choosing to this point-to-point bridge as it comes equipped with dual N-type connectors while the dual Gigabit Ethernet interfaces support PoE in and out connections.

Once installed, the setup wizard guides you through the setup process while the spectrum analyzer helps you find optimal operating frequencies for the area in which the bridge is deployed. Additionally, this bridge can be accessed via the 2.4 GHz frequency from distances of up to 65' away by nearly any Wi-Fi enabled device providing access to the Rapidfire GUI for easy troubleshooting of many network issues.

Enhanced Capacity

RapidFire delivers a high 700 Mb/s throughput via its unique and powerful RF design that supports up to 256-QAM modulation and 31 dBi output power. The proprietary W-Jet V protocol, specifically engineered for high performing PTP scenarios, minimizes interference even across long distances and stabilizes latency within 2-4 ms.

Professional Design

In addition to achieving maximum performance, LigoWave focuses on delivering flexibility and ease-of-use in the RapidFire series. The robust mounting bracket enables rapid deployment of the links and ensures survivability during high wind-load. A GORE membrane vent allows fast pressure equalization of the IP67 rated cast aluminum enclosure to prevent condensation and to ensure seal performance. A detachable handle eases transporting the devices up towers and over rough terrains. Additionally, RGB LEDs indicate different device statuses and signal levels (in 1 dBm steps) when aligning the antenna.

Powerful All-in-One Hardware Platform

LigoWave RapidFire delivers powerful performance with its new 1.2 GHz CPU dedicated for data processing and high (200,000) packet-per-second delivery. Equipped with two Gigabit Ethernet ports, one with PoE passthrough, the unit allows for 1+1 (failover) or repeater links and is ideal for high-security video surveillance scenarios. RapidFire incorporates integrated surge and ESD protection according to IEC standards and passes Class 4 requirements.

Wireless Configuration Interface

An internal 2.4 GHz radio allows access into the Rapidfire GUI by wireless connection with any Wi-Fi equipped device. This feature expedites the installation of links and alleviates the problem of troubleshooting in difficult-to-reach locations. Tests prove accessibility even when mounted on top of a 10-story building while standing 65' away.

Powerful OS

The LigoPTP operating system ensures easy and rapid deployment of point-to-point links with stable, fast performance. An intuitive and responsive user interface adjusts the layout based on the size of your screen. Essential tools including setup wizard, link test, antenna alignment, spectrum analyzer, and site survey are included to make set-up and troubleshooting more efficient. Automatic mechanisms such as auto-channel and automatic transmit power control optimize the link for maximum performance even in areas with high interference.

Setup Wizard

A link setup wizard guides the installer through the important steps of the setup process.

Spectrum Analyzer

The integrated spectrum analyzer demonstrates the noise floor in order to find the optimum frequency.

Single Side Configuration

LigoPTP RapidFire simplifies link configuration by supporting single side configuration as parameters are automatically applied to slave units once set on the master side.

Easy Pre-Configuration

LigoPTP RapidFire devices can be connected with each other using wired or wireless connectivity. End-user device can also connect to the master device using 2.4 GHz access radio or using wire to the Ethernet port of the master device. LigoPTP RapidFire devices can be discovered using Bonjour and SSDP protocols as well.
