IntraTec INT-BRIDGEDUO2 (INTBRIDGEDUO2, INT BRIDGEDUO2, INT/BRIDGEDUO2, int-bridgeduo2) camera top Wifi transmitter
Dual radio high power WiFi bridging unit
IntraTec Bridge 2 and Bridge Duo 2 are a powerful new way to connect video equipment with network connections over very large distances using WiFi. Bridge units can be used with video encoders and decoders to transmit video point to point, connect remote locations or transmit globally over the internet. They also can be used to remotely control PTZ Cameras and transmit the pictures. With a new breed of cameras offering wireless and network functionality the Bridge units can extend the usually poor range of these to very useful distances.
Bridge Duo 2 in addition to Bridge 2 functionality also features a second WiFi radio allowing both long range connectivity to a another BRIDGE/DUO unit as well as local connection of any devices via WiFi (up to 100m) or via ethernet. This allows users to use iPads or laptops to connect in addition to the long range network cable like connection. The BRIDGEDUO 2 comes in a ruggedized case with built in dual V-Mount power supply which can last all day. The Bridge Duo takes WiFi connectivity to the next level, designed to offer industry leading levels of performance and reliability without compromise.
The Bridge Duo's unique design allows one radio to be used for the long range link between two bridging units and the other radio for local device access. This system allows the bridging units to be static while the devices at each end can roam freely within the local hotspots range, this allows high gain directional antennas to be used for the backhaul without affecting the free roaming of your devices. Alternatively the secondary local radio can be used to connect to another bridging unit extending range even further. Built into a ruggedized water resistant case the unit can be powered from any v-lock battery or power over Ethernet. Each unit comes complete with two 5dBi omni-directional antennas for the main backhaul radio and two 5dBi antennas for the secondary radio. Externally mountable directional antennas are available for longer range links. The devices legacy switched diversity mode even allows multiple antennas to be used to cover a larger geographical area with multiple directional antennas. A built in LED signal strength indicator makes staying within range easy, while the unit will automatically adjust transmission rates and channel numbers based on current link conditions.
The Bridge Duo uses completely unlicensed 5Ghz bands and complies with IEEE802.11d global standards for licence free operation worldwide, offering transmission speeds of up to 300Mbps and ranges up to 0.5km (standard antennae) / 10km (external antenna and height dependant) while staying below the UKs 30 dBm EIRP power limit. If the distance between two units is just too much for the standard antennas and fixed external antennas are not practical the Bridge Duo features a repeater mode allowing an additional unit to be installed in between to regenerate and repeat the signal. The unit can even act as a high powered wireless router, in this mode the Ethernet port becomes the WAN port. Bridging is completely transparent, this means the devices connected to either end of the WiFi link will behave exactly as they would if they were connected directly with an Ethernet cable. Setup couldn't be easier.
The best possible WiFi Experience
The IntraTec Bridge Duo pushes current WiFi technology and local regulatory restrictions to their limit.
When you need to transmit over long distances and for extended periods, or receive WiFi signals on the move, the Bridge Duo 2 is a fantastic bit of kit. It's a powerful and well featured wireless system which incorporates battery power connectors for powering supplementary kit.
