If it isn't possible to run Ethernet cabling or fiber from a location that has internet connectivity to a location that doesn't, a wireless point-to-point could be used to bridge the connection. Wireless bridges have the ability to range from short distances (30 meters) or even long distances as far as 100 km.  

Concept:

Ideal conditions: 

Equipment list:

  • Power (required) - for remote deployments that don't have a power outlet available, a solar panel, generator, or a PoE owl could be used
  • 802.3af or 802.3at PoE switches or injectors (802.3at is required for the PoE heater to function on outdoor Verkada cameras) (required)
  • Ethernet cables (required)
  • Weather proof point-to-point bridge (required)
  • Internet connection (required)

It's strongly recommended to test all equipment for a few days to ensure everything is working as originally planned. There are usually unexpected variables that you will run into such as a wireless bridge not providing enough throughput or packet loss due to RF interference.
