hi experts.
I'm trying to set up a system to connect my office to several remote sites. One site is 120 km away. Another is 70km while another is 60km away. What I would like to try to do is set up the closest remote site first and then by using a repeater system connect to the farthest away.
What product(s) do you suggest I use to set this up. I realize that what I have suggested is a point to point but multipoint to point would be great if possible. Please help.

    The distance is too far. At the frequencies a wireless connection uses, apart from the limited transmitting power that  is allowed by regulations, only sight to sight connections are possible. You would be lucky to get a connection over a distance of 10 km and even for that you would need special directional arials.

    You would have to use something based on celular phones (Either a phone or a pccard using that technology) and use them to connect to the internet. Then use VPN to interconnect the sites.

    Hello, I can suggest the solution for that distance if it's 100% LOS?

    Go with Motorla PTP series APs that lets you connect at the distance of 250 KM LOS but i am sure that's not allowed to be leased, sold a/o used in the United states.

    Be advice that the price per link is 20000USD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
