Hiya folks.

I have a buddy that has 2 buildings on the opposite side of the street
from eachother. I want to find a way to have his servers in building
A, and his workstations in building B. I would like to have a multi-
channel wireless solution across the street as the "city" where he is
in, will charge stupid amounts of money for him to run a cable over or
under the street. It's a small town, so they have no clue how to
charge for this, nor do they realize it will help them do business.
Until we find a way of getting actual cable across the street, I want
to find a comparable wireless solution.

Are there any multiple-device, high speed solutions that have
directional favourtism? Optimally I would like to have a 3 channel
bridge over the road. I will deal with costs of professional
equipment later on, but the network just has to be super fast. I'm
just looking for options at the moment.

Cheers

Hi,
You might want to indicate what speeds are you looking at? For some
people 5 mbps is a lot and for others 1 gig is fast. your descision on
the products will depend on the goals.
In addition to setting up multiple point-to-point links, you might
want to consider how you will achieve link aggregation.
Simplest way is to setup 3 pairs of 802.11a radios terminated at a
link aggregator/loadbalancer at each end.
Look at http://gigabeam.com/ for some really exotic stuff.

Regards,
Shiv

Hi folks. Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately he has no more need
for it as he's rented one building out.

Cheers
