PTP 100 Series
This series of bridges make use of Motorola's proprietary Canopy™ Wireless Broadband Platform modulation scheme to deliver broadband connectivity across distances of up to 35 miles (56 kilometers). The PTP 100 Series is available in a broad range of frequencies (2.4, 5.1, 5.2, 5.4 and 5.8 GHz) and are uniquely suited for delivering consistent throughput in Line-of-Sight (LoS) configurations.
Our PTP 100 series bridges come in both full (14 Mbps) and lite (7.5 Mbps) versions. These radios are ideal for line-of-sight conditions. They are highly reliable, weather resistant, compact and rugged in design. The PTP 100 radios produce consistent data rates in the face of interference. Ideal applications for these bridges are rural or remote locations, campus applications, temporary and emergency systems, video surveillance, telemedicine, e-learning and banking.
These solutions support both over-the-air DES (Data Encryption Standard) encryption and are also available with AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) capabilities, which provide 128-bit encryption, to ensure secure data delivery and exceptional reliability.
PTP 400 Series
Motorola PTP 400 Series solutions achieve high-quality, reliable non-line-of-sight (NLoS) and long-range line-of-sight connectivity where other wireless solutions cannot. In fact, the Motorola PTP 400 Series of Point-to-Point 4.9, 5.4 and 5.8 GHz wireless Ethernet bridges offer throughputs of up to 43 Mbps and support ranges up to 124 miles or 200 km.
All PTP 400 Series products include Motorola’s unique combination of technologies designed to protect against fading and radically increase performance, including:
- Multiple-Input Multiple-Output

Built-in Security and Optional AES Encryption
Because each radio is pre-programmed with the MAC address of its matched partner, the two ends of a link will communicate only with each other eliminating "man in the middle" attacks. Each matched pair also employs a complex scrambling mechanism that offers a high degree of security for over-the-air transmissions. In addition, you can choose to augment these security capabilities with FIPS 197 compliant, 128-bit AES encryption.
PTP 500 Series
Choose the PTP 500 Series to deliver high-speed, robust wireless backhaul. Connect buildings in a campus setting. Extend video surveillance beyond the wired infrastructure. Support bandwidth-intensive applications such as Voice-over-IP, telemedicine, IP gaming and multimedia. The PTP 500 bridges can deliver up to 99.999% availability in virtually any environment, including non-line-of-sight, long-distance line-of-sight, over water or open terrain, even through extreme weather conditions.
PTP 500 Series bridges come in Integrated and Connectorized models, both available in 5.4 and 5.8 GHz RF bands and operating at data rates up to 105 Mbps.
More Range to Anywhere
PTP 500 Series links have class-leading sensitivity and power output, which enable the links to go farther than comparable systems – up to 155 miles (250 km).
Motorola combines MIMO, i-OFDM and our advanced signal-processing algorithms to create four simultaneous channels between pairs of transceivers at each end of the link, without losing spectrum efficiency.
Choice and Flexibility
PTP 500 Series bridges are available in several models to meet your individual requirements:
- • 5.4 and 5.8 GHz Integrated: These operate at Ethernet data rates up to 105 Mbps with dual built-in antennas, for obstructed and high-interference environments where high throughput is a major requirement.
- • 5.4 and 5.8 GHz Connectorized: These models combine the technology of the Integrated versions with the high-gain advantage of external antennas. Over long distances and in extremely adverse environments, including deep non-line-of sight, these solutions let you connect over greater distance and at a higher level of reliability and speed than comparable wireless bridges.
PTP 600 Series
This Series of 2.5 and 4.5, 5.4, and 5.8 GHz wireless Ethernet bridges provide more range and capacity in near- and non-line-of-sight (NLoS) environments, delivering carrier-grade reliability. PTP 600 links have class-leading sensitivity and power output which enable the links to go farther, regardless of conditions. With data rates up to 300 Mbps, this Series of high-performance and secure wireless bridges provide throughput connectivity in some of the most challenging environments.
High-Throughput Connectivity Virtually Anywhere
With aggregate throughput up to 300 Mbps, PTP 600 Series solutions deliver greater spectral efficiency than comparable systems. These bridges are particularly well-suited for applications and networks that require high throughput and T1/E1 capability because they build in extra features that deliver greater speed and mitigate radio-frequency (RF) interference. The T1/E1 ports mean that you can bundle circuit-switched connectivity with IP voice, video and data communications
Each radio is pre-programmed with the MAC address of its matched partner, so the two ends of a link communicate only with each other, eliminating "man in the middle" attacks. Each matched pair also has a complex scrambling mechanism, heightening security for over-the-air transmissions. You can augment security further with FIPS 197 compliant, 128-bit or 256-bit AES encryption.
