Wireless connectivity when line of sight is not clear.

We have 2 offices seprated with distance of 7KMs Arial Distance.

From roof .. Line of sight is not so clear..

Can i Still think of applying wireless Access point. i.e  

some thing like following solution.

http://www.dipolnet.com/access_point_tp-link_tl-wa7510n_5ghz_outdoor__N2351.htm

Even 40 Mbps Bandwidth is more than enought for us. Will the above solution i am thinking would work or not.  Or there exists a different solution - where line of sight is not perfectly clear.

Thanks & Regards,
Ashish

Ehh I'm seeing some big red flags when you say it's 7 KM apart.  You're better off going through a VPN to be honest.  I use LogMeIn's Hamachi 2 for my VPNs:

Wireless just isn't that reliable.

Thanks for your valuable suggestion.. However.. this would not work in our case...!!!

Basicly we are requiring high bandwidth to join two offices, as Internet service provider has become non feasible...!!



Thanks.

I'd have to disagree... I've deployed wireless links well over 7Km with near-line-of-sight.

I wouldn't use a cheap solution for this though.  In nearly all situations where line-of-sight wasn't 'that' clear I've used Alvarion Breezenet kit.  You can license the kit to go up-to around 250Mbps (so around 100Mbps data throughput).

However, you might be able to use a P2P bridge kit from Ubiquiti - something like the AirMAX NanoBridge M for example.  Their kit is cheap yet very reliable.  I've used lots of Ubiquiti kit in clear line-of-sight installations and I've never been disappointed - even at links of over 10Km.  You'll also get around 100Mbps data throughput using this kit if the link is solid and you use 5GHz.
