Hi everyone, one of the common questions I get is how a business can extend their LAN when they can’t use normal wiring to do so.
This inevitably leads to a discussion about wireless technologies and how this can be implemented. I am a big proponent of using some of Cisco’s and HP’s gear in creating wireless bridges from site to site. Both companies make gear that allow you to bridge one network to another using wireless signal.
The biggest thing to take into account would be whether you have line of sight and what kind of distance you need to shoot the signal over. Also weather plays a big factor. There are a lot of little things you can miss when planning out a wireless bridge solution, so I would recommend consulting with someone who has experience in this regard.
