Tsunami QuickBridge 20
Wireless Outdoor Bridge Product Family

Tsunami QuickBridge 20 is a faster, easier, and more cost-effective alternative to leased lines, and 802.11b bridges—providing toll quality outdoor connectivity between buildings at distances of up to six miles.

Faster Return on Investment Than Leased Lines

Tsunami QuickBridge 20 eliminates the installation costs and recurring fees associated with standard T1 or E1 installations. As a leased-line replacement for a single T1/E1, it pays for itself in about a year. Payback period can further be reduced to less than 2 months when replacing multiple leased lines. And, with the addition of an optional T1 or E1 port, you can establish both voice and data connectivity between buildings and eliminate the recurring leased line costs.

At 20 Mbps, Tsunami QuickBridge 20 provides data connectivity at nearly four times the actual throughput of comparably priced 802.11b bridging solutions, and more than five times the speed of a standard T1/E1 installation. At the same time, Tsunami QuickBridge 20 delivers up to 99.999% reliability — exceeding that of leased lines. And, because it is wireless and license-free, you can get connected without delay.

Fast, Easy Installation
Tsunami QuickBridge is the easiest-to-install outdoor bridge on the market - in can be installed in hours, not days. The solution includes two radio units with integrated antennas, and all of the necessary documentation, cables and mounting hardware. An antenna alignment tool and uses audible tones to ensure that the antennas are properly aligned before you leave the installation site.

About the Tsunami Product Family
The Tsunami family of Ethernet bridges provides wireless solutions that meet the growing demand for transparent and reliable high-speed network interconnectivity. In addition to Tsunami QuickBridge 20, the most cost-effective outdoor bridging solution available today, the Tsunami product line includes:

  • Tsunami 10, a cost-effective, high capacity alternative to multiple wireline T1 connections
  • Tsunami 45 and Tsunami 100, carrier-class building-to-building connectivity for voice and data
  • Tsunami 480, the world's first license-exempt Ethernet bridge to provide Gigabit wireless connectivity using native IP.
