More than a bridge! That's what you can expect from Wi-LAN's "Hopper Plus" wireless Ethernet bridge transceivers. Hopper Plus bridges provide reliable, high security network connectivity, usually at a fraction of the cost of wire, cable or fibre-optic alternatives. Hopper Plus wireless networks can be set up and configured in minutes without extra routing equipment or software.
Hopper Plus wireless bridges operate in licence-exempt ISM bands using proven direct sequence spread spectrum radio technology. Choose them to avoid the high costs of installing wire and escape from licencing fees or on-going monthly line charges. Join the many satisfied Hopper Plus users who have saved enough in installation charges and on-going line fees to quickly recoup their entire network set-up costs.
Wi-LAN's wireless bridges are in use around the world in a wide variety of corporate, industrial, educational and government networking applications. They can be used in almost any line-of-sight environment to replace, extend or connect wired Ethernet networks and are especially effective where wires are unavailable, impractical or too costly to install or maintain. They are the ideal solution for multiple-site information networks, high speed Internet access and wireless communications infrastructures.
Technology That Goes The Distance
Wi-LAN technology goes the distance to give you maximum value for your wireless networking investment. We go way beyond conventional thinking by designing and engineering our own digital and RF boards. We build in many features that guarantee you superior security, reliability and cost-effective performance.
Effective Throughput Superior Performance
Donıt fall prey to the "myth of speed". Itıs not only how fast they are, it's how they work for you that counts. Unlike many competitors' models that operate at less than half their advertised speeds, Hopper Plus bridges perform consistently at 80 to 85% peak efficiency. Wi-LANıs proprietary Dynamic Time Allocation (DTA) technique allocates variable time slots to busy stations when needed. DTA does not waste valuable bandwidth allocating time to idle stations.
Spread Spectrum radio technology, developed by the military to avoid enemy detection and interference, is inherently more secure than narrow band radio or wired networking technologies. Wi-LAN has added many features that make it virtually impossible to intercept and decipher transmissions from its Hopper Plus bridges: pseudo-random spreading codes, irregular transmission patterns, proprietary data formatting and specialized filters. Customer-specific encryption keys and secret access passwording features ensure the security of your data - even from other Hopper Plus users.
All Hopper Plus wireless bridges use a polling protocol to eliminate the inefficient data collisions that plague more commonplace CSMA-based systems. And, because all remote units do not have to "see" each other, you can add many more stations to your network. The combined benefits of Dynamic Time Allocation and polling make Hopper Plus Ethernet bridges the standard for efficient, cost-effective multipoint wireless networking.
Weıve built more into our Hopper Plus bridges so you can get more out of them - quickly, simply and conveniently. Every Hopper Plus can be easily configured to serve as a base, remote or repeater station. Hopper Plus bridges are self-learning and protocol transparent. You donıt need to be an engineer or a system integrator to set up your Hopper Plus network.
You can configure your system in a few minutes. In fact, we've had customers set up their own on-site demos in less than 30 seconds.
