Both models have a 2.4GHz/5GHz dual radio system, designed to link two or more local LANs over one band (Bridge mode), while simultaneously providing wireless client access over the other band (Access Point mode).

The dual radio architecture allows different bridging options using either the 802.11a (5GHz) or 802.11b/g (2.4GHz) wireless band. Both radios can also be used as access points. Up to 6 WDS links are supported on each radio, which can operate as WDS Master or Slave.

Other features include weatherproof enclosures, support for 802.3af Power over Ethernet and built-in lightning protection. Enterprise-level authentication and encryption are also supported including Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA/WPA2) and RADIUS authentication using 802.1x.

Both products are priced at $699.99 (MSRP). Availability was not given.
