Smart 802.11ac 5GHz Outdoor Point-to-Point, Point-to-Multipoint Wireless Bridge

Download PDF »

The RUCKUS® P300 is an outdoor point-to-point and point-to-multpoint bridge that unleashes the promise of 5GHz 802.11ac, delivering unparalleled backhaul throughput of over 500Mbps which opens opportunities to new business models, bridging remote locations and providing broadband services to locations not reachable previously, in an affordable way.

Designed for harsh outdoor conditions, the P300 is perfect for service providers looking to easily extend branded broadband services, backhaul small cell networks, offload data traffic from small cell networks, deploy multimedia hotspots, or offer wireless broadband services where fixed line access is limited.

The P300 is also ideal for hotels, schools, warehouses and other enterprises looking to extend managed wireless LANs (WLANs) across remote buildings and where Ethernet cabling is not possible.

Auto-pairing of wireless bridges, in addition to flexible mounting options, forgiving antenna pattern, and an easy-to-use aiming software, allows installers to deploy and optimize a wireless link in a short time, significantly increasing productivity and reducing deployment costs.



Wire-Like Throughput Over the Air

Based on the 802.11ac standard, the P300 supports RF data rates of up to 867 Mbps. With RUCKUS’ purpose-built directional antenna, the P300 supports throughputs up to 500 Mbps and offers performance up to 100 Mbps at 8 km (LoS).*

* When used with optional external antenna

Easy Installation and Pairing

RUCKUS® P300 enables installers to deploy wireless bridges effortlessly. Lightweight and designed with simple and flexible mounting options.

Simple Positioning and Aiming

Precision aiming and optimized performance with 30-degree beamwidth antenna and sophisticated LED-based aiming software. P300 proactively finds and selects the best performing channel automatically using RUCKUS’ patented ChannelFly® channel selection algorithms.

Secure and Scalable

The wireless bridge link is AES secure and can scale to support multiple networks segmented by VLANs.

10x Scalability with Wireless Multi-Node Bridging

Each root bridge is capable of supporting up to 10 receiving bridges.

Unmatched ROI

The wireless link offers much higher data throughput rates than T1/E1 or xDSL lines at only a fraction of the fixed line installation cost and without the recurring leased line cost. The P300 is also an ideal option for backhauling small cell cellular networks.

Environmentally-Friendly Design

The internal dual polarized antenna not only does away the need for installing an external antenna, further simplifying the installation procedure, but also offers an aesthetically pleasing look and feel.
