Rugged and Durable Outdoor Wi-Fi Solution
PLANET WAP-252N 802.11n Outdoor Wireless AP comes with the IP67-rated aluminum case, enormously protected from dust and water immersion. It adopts the mature technology of IEEE 802.11n 2T2R standard with maximum connectivity and 300Mbps performance in 2.4GHz frequency band. By connecting high-gain antenna through the flexible N-type connectors, it is easy to achieve various outdoor long-distance applications and capable to adapt to any rough environment.
For the maximum adaptability and stability in the rugged environment, the WAP-252N not only comes with IP67-rated aluminum die-cast housing, but also adopts the enterprise-level Qualcomm kernel, capable of withstanding wide temperature ranging from -40 to 70 degrees C. With the IEEE 802.3af/at PoE, the WAP-252N can be easily installed in the areas where power outlets are not available. Furthermore, it is also suitable to be integrated with PLANET Solar Power PoE System to offer wireless services even in the suburbs.
Designed for Heavy Data Transmission Traffic
With larger memory capacity and faster CPU clock speed, the WAP-252N is capable of withstanding high frequency of user access and heavy data transmission traffic in the densely-populated area. To have a suitable coverage threshold, the product can flexibly control the client access, efficiently limit unreachable clients and retain bandwidth for authorized users. To provide maximum performance, the WAP-252N can implement up to 8 operation modes where a multitude of applications can be had for communities, warehouses, campuses, harbors, etc.
Multiple SSIDs with VLAN Tagging
As for security, the WAP-252N supports WPA/WPA2, and the 802.1X RADIUS authentication to secure the wireless connection. Besides, the supported IEEE 802.1Q VLAN allows multiple VLAN tags to be mapped to multiple SSIDs to distinguish the wireless access. This makes it possible for the WAP-252N to work with managed Ethernet switches to have VLANs assigned to a different access level and authority.
Optimized Efficiency in AP Management
The brand-new GUI configuration wizard helps the system administrator easily set up the WAP-252N step by step. Besides, the built-in Wi-Fi analyzer provides real-time channel utilization to prevent channel overlapping to assure greater performance. With the automatic transmission power mechanism, distance control and scheduling reboot setting, the WAP-252N is easier for the administrator to deploy and manage without on-site maintenance. Moreover, you can simply install PLANET AP controller software, SAPC (Smart AP Control), to deliver wireless profiles to multiple APs simultaneously, thus making the central management simple.
Flexible Hardware and Software Characteristics for Various Applications
With a specific antenna connected through the built-in N-type connectors and eight operation modes, the WAP-252N greatly benefits the system integrator as a multitude of applications can be had for communities, warehouses, campuses, harbors, etc. Designed to be adapted to any rigorous environment, the WAP-252N comes with a IP67-rated aluminum case and standard PoE power scheme, thus eliminating the difficulty in the outdoor wireless LAN deployment.
Furthermore, compatible with the latest PLANET Smart AP Control, the WAP-252N can assist administrators in managing the network centrally with ease.
**Matching the WAP-252N with the related PLANET products to get the best results is recommended.
