Outdoor WiFi Client Bridge

NETGEAR AirBridge can connect to an existing Wireless Router or Access Point for IP camera connectivity. In this case, the user connects the AirBridge to the Main site as a WiFi client. The AirBridge is located either indoor or outdoor, away from the Main Site. The IP Camera connects to the AirBridge through the Ethernet port. This mode is available through the local standalone management mode only.

Outdoor WiFi Client Bridge

Outdoor WiFi Access Point

NETGEAR AirBridge can provide long-range WiFi service to outdoor clients. Set up an AirBridge that functions as an access point to serve multiple outdoor WiFi clients over a long range. Ideal for hot spots, campgrounds, schools, etc.
