Outdoor access point with integrated antenna for high-performance
- Ideal for high-performance outdoor wireless bridges compliant with
- Integrated 5-GHz antenna with 2X2 MIMO for up to 17-dBi gain
- Reliable under extreme temperatures ranging from - 30°C to + 70°C
- External antenna connections for 2.4-GHz or 5-GHz antennas
- Full control over configuration events thanks to TACACS+
- Gigabit connection with PoE as per 802.3af
The LANCOM OAP-321 makes it particularly easy to install
powerful wireless transmission paths in the 5-GHz range. The device already has
an integrated antenna, so there is no need to install and align an external
antenna. The benefits of this are: There is no loss in antenna performance
because there are no adapters or antenna cables to attenuate the signals and
reduce wireless performance. This allows the full 17-dBI performance to be used
for high throughput over several kilometers.
A management system is vital outdoors where conditions
are difficult, for example when it is difficult to see the LEDs on an access
point mounted on a tall mast. The free LCMS LANCOM Management System allows the
monitoring of all device functions and provides an overview of the entire
network. It is possible to check whether the access points are transmitting and,
if so, on which channels, how much data each one is sending, which clients are
logged in and where, what encryption method is active, and a whole lot more.
Maximum control is also possible with regard to
configuration: The access point supports TACACS+. Using the AAA protocol ("authentication,
authorization, accounting") it is possible to track all activities relating to
the configuration of the access point.
More reliability for the future.
LANCOM products stand for durability and dependability.
For this reason we invest a great deal of time in designing our equipment and in
corresponding quality assurance measures. With outdoor products we attach great
importance to the right materials for housings and coatings. This enables LANCOM
outdoor devices to resist the elements for many years. The hardware components
inside our units are selected in such a way that there will be enough memory to
accommodate future software versions without impacting performance. A LANCOM
access point also guarantees a long life with regard to software: We provide
updates several times a year for our LCOS operating system containing new
features and improved functionality.
Besides an internal 5-GHz antenna, the LANCOM OAP-321 also offers two
external antenna connectors. Three LEDs indicate the status of the device, the
configuration can be loaded via the COM port, and the Gigabit connection enables
the high 11n-standard data rates to be used in the network.
High-quality outdoor housing
Products intended for outdoor use are often subject to
extreme conditions such as very high or very low temperatures. The LANCOM OAP-321
is designed for temperatures ranging from -30 to +70°C. The device even
withstands rain and snow, with various design aspects being taken into
consideration to achieve effective anti-corrosion protection.
