BUILDING TO BUILDING CONNECTION

Hi All,

About Ten of our LAN users are moving to a new building which is about 50m far from the existing building for a few Monthes. They have there own cabling and must access our LAN for domain authentication..etc. I am thinking Two Access points with Antenna on each side but found it expensive solution.

Does anybody has simple and economical solution ?

I appreciate any help

Re: BUILDING TO BUILDING CONNECTION

You need two wireless bridges..Access Point will not work..I assume the distance between two buildings is 50 meter not a 50 mile as cisco's wireless bridges will cover upto 25 mile distance with a best line of sight..

Re: BUILDING TO BUILDING CONNECTION

you mean I can use two Wireless Bridges without external Antenna, like if i put both of them near to a window which is in a best line if sight on both Buildings.

Thankyou very much

You need to use external antennas between buildings..Without that it will not work.

Re: BUILDING TO BUILDING CONNECTION

If you put two bridges 50 meters apart using the 2.2dBi di-pole antennas, you will have almost 100x the signal strength you need, however you will create 'noise' that may reduce the throughput for APs in either building.

Since this is a temporary setup, the cheap answer is to use a wireless client device to connect the remote building through your existing AP - as long as your applications can tolerate crossing a Layer 3 connection.

Price tag? Less than $500.
