Last week, Ubiquiti Inc launched the new UniFi Building Bridge, which is a preconfigured 60GHz PtP kit with a backup 5GHz radio built in. In the past, if you needed to extend a full UniFi network between two places, you would have to use Ubiquiti’s range of airMAX 5GHz or 2.4GHz PtMP gear, which can’t be managed with UniFi which makes remote support a little difficult.

Enter the building bridge, which is a NanoBeam body with a flat front, but now manageable by UniFi. And you get the benefit of 60GHz, an unlicensed frequency range, which has 500m of range with up to 1.7Gbps of capacity.

They come in a two pack only at the moment and are pre-configured to connect to each other out of the box, the Building Bridge also has a handy LED around it to help with alignment. If you do lose one, or one dies the only option at the moment is to purchase a whole new pair.

UniFi Building Bridge retails for $499 on
