5GHz NLOS High-Power Wireless Network Bridge – GS5800
No other bridge system we’ve ever created or offered on the market matches this level of performance. RadioLabs GS-5800, 5GHz Bridge, achieves amazing, long range, fast, 150 MBPS wireless bridging. Our new, GS-5800 Wireless network bridge incorporates a powerful high-gain antenna, with an advanced, feature-rich wireless toolset and highly sensitive receiver and powerful transmitter give you bridge range never before possible. This amazing new design, penetrates trees, leaves and obstructions, and line of sight range up to 20 miles. This 802.11A Bridge system, is a commercial class, fully contained wireless network bridge system, with Power over Ethernet, full stainless mounting hardware, in a solid aluminum enclosure. Simply stated, there is nothing better on the market for direct, commercial point to point network bridging.
With the recent and complete ban on manufacturing and sales of ALL 900 MHz bridges in the industry, the RadioLabs GS-5800, high performance 5GHz wireless bridge, is the only true NLOS replacement in the industry. The 5800, not only provides EXCELLENT Non Line of Sight bridging, it greatly exceeds the performance originally obtained by the 900 MHz Band. How do we do this? Our antenna technology, has allowed an almost 100% success rate in all applications where NLOS was not even capable using any 900 MHz band. It’s fair to say, that the way we implement our Non Line of Sight phase control technology is beyond anything we’ve ever designed, tested or implemented.
Long Range 5 GHz WiFi – Wireless Bridge
Similar to 802.11B/G/N bridging, our GS-5800 network bridge, is in the same class as our competition’s bridge networks, which cost well over $6000 or more. For such high power and gain, the RadioLabs 5GHz Wireless Bridge, outperforms the competition, for a fraction of the price. Originally designed for line of sight bridging between buildings, this high power bridge has a unique antenna, allowing simultaneous data in both vertical and horizontal polarizations simultaneously, achieving amazing NLOS stability even through obstructions. Similar to our 2.4GHz 300MBPS MIMO wireless bridge system, the powerful, robust GS-5800, features a whopping 24dB panel antenna with ability to operate in all modes, AP, Client, WDS, WDS AP (Repeater) mode. This system can achieve all modes of wireless operation, including our popular WDS simulated ethernet bridge mode, allowing partnerships between radios to be created, making two radios locked together, disabling all other outside potential interference. If these radios are ever powered down, their main mission in life, is to regain wireless bridge connectivity
NLOS Wireless 5GHz Bridge
Originally designed and tested in the wireless security industry, where reliable, 5GHz, NLOS networking was required, the GS-5800, has been tested over some tough terrain. Typically, 5GHz bridge systems have always required good, unobstructed Line-of-Sight for point to point links. This is normally true with standard panel or other antennas, which are always vertically, or horizontally polarized. With the RadioLabs GS-5800, 5 GHz wireless bridge system, our antenna delivers a tremendous 24 dB gain in both polarized domains at the same time, essentially weaving it’s way through and around obstructions. This leads to excellent network stability with very little loss of data. When tested beside our 900MHz Wireless Bridge System, the GS-5800 5GHz Wireless Bridge, showed more stability, more wireless throughput, and higher data rates.
The NLOS Wireless Bridge systems we offer, are always more reliable in terms of stable data throughput. Even our standard Line-of-Sight bridge kits show some NLOS characteristics, but they do not compare on the same level as multi-polarization antennas we offer.
High Speed Wireless Bridging Features
The RadioLabs GS-5800 long range, low latency wireless bridge, reduces data time with fast throughput and powerful processing speed, packed with all the robust wireless features such as individual control of packet size, adjustable distance, power, receiver sensitivity readings, interference monitor which scans for surrounding wireless signals which could interfere with reliable bridging, full bandwidth adjustments for upper and lower sideband, auto-distance calculations and WDS pairing, locking together the AP and Clients into a partnership which can’t be broken. Self-healing bridge network, automatically reconnects upon return of power or restoration of wireless partner. Robust 48v Commercial series POE, is fully 802.3af compliant, allowing you to supply power plus data through up to 330 ft of CAT-5 cable.
Full independent wireless control allows the GS-5800s to be programmed into AP Bridge, AP Router, Client Bridge or Client router, allowing for almost any type of imaginable wireless configurations. RadioLabs GS-5800s, can even connect to remote AP Systems, and allowing for fully independent routing and NAT forwarding, through every single unit. This is a first, as it allows our users to partner with a primary AP, then form their own , fully configurable DHCP network, serving 253 users per client. This amazingly powerful bridge system is perfect for long range WISP, up to 20 miles or more, with a highly directional panel.
The GS-5800, is just one of our powerful new bridge systems from RadioLabs, designed for an ever increasing digital world of long range wireless data. Whether used as a single backhaul or a reliable point to point bridge system, the GS-5800 fulfills the job, with this highly versatile, sensitive, long range 5 – 6 GHz bridge system. No other commercial series bridge system on the market offers so many features at a consumer level cost.
We have installed the 5-6Ghz GS-5800 bridge as a replacement to the 2.4Ghz O2Surf; not because the O2Surf stopped working but because of external signal disturbances in the area resulting in an unreliable bridge. Our decision to go with the GS-5800 was decided by many factors; reliability, signal strength, commercial grade design and materials. All in all it must last and perform to provide a stable bridge and we were not disappointed. We have had our GS-5800 bridge installed for a little over a year and it has been a stable and reliable bridge.
Our wireless bridge is ~1.3 miles from source to destination; internet is not provided in our remote area so extending internet from a location that does have internet is done via this bridge. From the naked eye we can barely see each site and certainly cannot see the antenna locations so NLOS is optimal. The setup and configuration was simple. The mounting was very simple and used the existing mounts that we used for the O2Surf. The GS-5800 bridge came pre-configured by RadioLabs so was mostly setup, essentially point and go. RadioLabs wanted to confirm the configuration and provide some fine tuning which was easily done via a remote software installed on my laptop.
Performance after a year of use continues to be outstanding. Lag is not perceivable and throughput is nearly that of the source. I would expect same up/down speeds; we get 80-90+Mbps download. The internet company throttles the upload speed to 10Mbps, but I would expect similar as my download.
We eventually replaced all of our internal network equipment with RadioLabs products (O2Air-AC) and haven’t been disappointed. Their products and support are outstanding. We look forward to continued use and purchases of their products for our network needs.

We have been using this device for about six months now. It works very well. There is no discernable speed loss over the bridge. I am exceptionally satisfied with the results. It is shooting the internet over a distance to our farm field office. The bridge is very stable. I bought it configured and when it came it was essentially plug and play. The bridge is always good for streaming and we can upload / download large files across the bridge.
Recovery is pretty easy. If the power goes out, all you have to do is reset the signal conditioners and routers. I am going to install a battery backup on both sides of the bridge so I don’t have to do the reset.
Cannot say enough good about this. The bridge saved me $25,000 in having cable internet run to the office.
