  • Page 23: Product Description

    A PTP 300 Series Bridge system consists of a pair of identical devices that are deployed one at each end of the link. At installation, the user sets up one unit as the Master and the other as the Slave.
  • Page 24: The Outdoor Unit (Odu)

    Power is provided to the ODU over the 100BaseT Ethernet connection using a patented non- standard powering technique. Power is fed into the PTP 300 Series Bridge PIDU Plus from the mains via a standard “figure of eight” mains plug. Connection between the ODU and PIDU Plus is made using standard CAT5e outdoor UV resistant cable.

    Product Architecture 4 Product Architecture The PTP 300 Series Bridge consists of an identical pair of units deployed one at each end of the link. The radio link operates on a single frequency channel in each direction using Time Division Duplex (TDD). One unit is deployed as a master and the other as a slave. The master unit takes responsibility for controlling the link in both directions.
