How To Create Point-to-Point Bridge Connection
A Point-to-Point wireless ethernet bridge connection enables users to connect two or more locations that can share files, internet and other types of data across the network. This method is pretty much descent, eliminating the use of network cables from one point to the other and by other means it lowers the cost of your networking setup.
There are several CPE (customer premises equipment) wireless bridge antennas that comes with different features. CPE by definition refers to any piece of connected equipment that is used for accessing the Internet or generally accessing services on a provider network, whether directly or indirectly connected to that network.
