WaveMAX – high performance, long range, point to point and multi-point outdoor wireless bridging

Wavemax

Eliminating the cost, delays and disruption associated with laying fibre, leasing lines or installing cables, Wavesight’s WaveMAX offers a flexible, cost-effective, high-performance, feature-rich outdoor bridging solution. WaveMAX can be used in both point-to-point (PtP) and point-to-multipoint (PtMP) configurations, in either transmit or receive mode.
