The PowerBridge M5 is a cost-effective networking solution designed and offered by Ubiquiti Network, one of the leading network systems companies in the world. It’s a compact but comprehensive unit that allows you to connect networks seamlessly.
The PowerBridge M5 is a bridging client that lets you handle two or more networks located at various places more quickly and efficiently. With the other features that you will get to read below, there’s no doubt that the PowerBridge M5 is set or ready to impress anyone, even the most hard-core wireless network critics.
Powerful Advanced Antenna
A huge part of its excellent performance is its integrated advanced antenna array, which has an amazing gain at 25dBi with dual-polarity capabilities. This means that the signal can travel very long distances at an orientation that is considered the more effective, either vertical or horizontal. It also features a MIMO technology that offers the reliability and efficiency as far as wireless connectivity is concerned.
The antenna works alongside the attached chipset, Atheros 24KC MIPS with a clock speed of 400MHz. It also has an 8MB NAND Flash well as a 64MB SDRAM.
If you’re having problems with latency and bandwidth, the PowerBridge M5 solves the issues by adopting the TDMA protocol from AirMax technology. This gives you more control over bandwidth and latency by allowing you to set the most ideal transmission times. The technology has also been designed to be scalable so it easily copes with the changes of your needs.
