BridgeWave Communications' FE60X Sets 60 GHz Wireless Distance Record

Santa Clara, CA - November 7, 2005 - BridgeWave Communications, the leading supplier of multi-gigabit wireless solutions, announces its new FE60X 100Mbps Ethernet wireless link. The FE60X operates at distances up to 1.5 miles - by far the longest operating range of any 60 GHz wireless link on the market.

The FE60X is based on BridgeWave's FE60 wireless link, with the addition of a two-foot external antenna and a transmitter operating at the highest FCC-allowed power level. Like the FE60, the FE60X link provides a full-rate, low-latency, 100Mbps Ethernet connection to extend LANs between enterprise buildings and complement network operator fiber deployments.

“Users of lower-frequency license-free bands are looking at 60 GHz as a solution for the growing frequency congestion at 2.4 and 5GHz,” explained Amir Makleff, BridgeWave's President and CEO. “With the FE60X's increased operating range, users now have a robust, interference-free alternative for the majority of high-capacity wireless applications.”

The FE60X has a list price of $18,900, competitively-priced with lower-frequency 100Mbps solutions. The FE60X is available for order through BridgeWave's leading wireless value-added resellers and distributors with shipments starting in late November.
