airBridge™ TOTAL - Now even more versatile and robust!

Lower start-up costs, reduced operating costs and faster network rollouts. Now enhanced with surge protection and a N type connector for an external antenna option

airBridge™ TOTAL is the preferred CPE solution which makes this possible, providing excellent performance and enhanced security for users. airBridge TOTAL now comes with new enhancements like Surge Protection Circuit and an external N Connector.

airBridge™ TOTAL is a 2.4 GHz 802.11b compatible client device that is based on our coveted airBridge™ core design. The airBridge™ TOTAL is a completely integrated unit with a 13dBi/ 9dbi* antenna and the widely accepted airBridge™ encapsulated into a single neat NEMA 4X device. The 13dBi integrated antennas comply with FCC standards. The Euro version of airBridge™ TOTAL has a 9dBi antenna to conform to ETSI standards.  To enhance deployment flexibility, an external N connector has been added. If during installation it is discovered that a higher gain external antenna is required, this can be connected to the external N connector.

The Surge Protection circuit in the airBridge Total brings carrier-class protection for long lasting performance. Designed with ease of installation in mind, airBridge™ TOTAL simplifies subscriber installation with its Integrated Antenna, Power over Ethernet (PoE), 'Plug and Play' installation, extended temperature range and a software controlled 'dial a power' capability. It supports roaming, firmware upgrade across subnets and PPPoE.

airBridge™ TOTAL is well-suited for use in a variety of other settings:

  • Public parks /Stadiums
  • Marinas
  • Convention centers
  • Warehouses
  • Shipyards
  • Residential Links
  • Hotspots

Surge Protection & Ruggedness - The Surge Protection circuit in the airBridge Total builds formidable protection against surges commonly encountered with outdoor device installations. This brings much-needed carrier-class protection for long lasting and reliable performance. Housed in a NEMA 4X weatherproof casing, the airBridge™ TOTAL is built to operate in harsh environments. This device can be installed on the building exterior as well as indoors. airBridge™ TOTAL delivers reliable performance under all climatic conditions, withstanding temperatures between -40 C to +65 C (-40 F to 150 F). It is the perfect solution for indoor wireless applications in dusty, wet, oily or high temperature environments like a factory shop floor.

External Antenna Option - The built-in high performance antenna is normally sufficient for most of the subscribers. For some demanding installations due to distance or LoS issues, higher gain external antenna can be easily connected to the N connector. Software selection allows the use of internal and the external antenna. This flexibility simplify WISP inventory management and deployment issues as only one client device can alone handle all possible requirements. 

Highest Receive Sensitivity - LongRange™ 802.11b radio that provides enhanced power to deliver high data throughput and long operating range. smartBridges' superior design of the radio receiver allows it to listen to the smallest incoming signals. These superior receiver and transmitter characteristics result in long-range wireless coverage. Better range of the airBridge™ TOTAL translates directly into lower wireless infrastructure costs for WISPs as they can cover a large area with a smaller number of access points.

Weatherproof Ruggedness - Housed in a NEMA 4X weatherproof casing, the airBridge™ TOTAL is built to operate in harsh environments. This device can be installed on the building exterior as well as indoors. airBridge™ TOTAL delivers reliable performance under all climatic conditions, withstanding temperatures between -40 C to +65 C (-40 F to 150 F). It is the perfect solution for indoor wireless applications in dusty, wet, oily or high temperature environments like a factory shop floor.

Weatherproof Connector - The airBridge™ TOTAL now introduces an innovative way of connecting outdoor Ethernet CAT 5 cable. The device has a 1 ft CAT 5 cable terminating at one end connected to the airBridge™ TOTAL and the other end terminating into a weather-proof RJ 45 female connector. The user can then extend the CAT 5 cable length to whatever length required (100m maximum).

Driverless Operation - The self-contained airBridge™ TOTAL unit can be mounted on a pole or wall. With the included powerShot™, a standard PoE injector, the airBridge™ TOTAL can be powered over the standard Ethernet CAT 5 cable. airBridge™ TOTAL also features plug-and-play installation that enables quick and efficient deployment. It works with all WiFi™ compatible IEEE 802.11b Access Points and eliminates complicated client installations and driver conflicts with various OS.

Intelligent Remote Manageability - airBridge™ TOTAL is supported by simpleMonitor™, an advanced Management tool designed using Open Systems architecture. It utilizes popular network management standards (SNMP) to manage the wireless-centric network device parameters such as, channel selection, network association, data rate and site survey etc. Its graphical user interface is extremely intuitive for navigating, examining, and managing the airBridge™ TOTAL.
