5 GHz. 802.11 A+N, MiMo, AP - CPE-BRIDGE 18 dBi Integrated Dual Pol panel antenna IPOL protocol
The APC 5M-18 delivers the highest performance and stability available in the 5 GHz CPE class. This product combines a robust IP-67 compliant enclosure with a highly advanced 802.11n radio core containing MIMO 2x2 technology along with an integrated high-gain dual polarization directional antenna. The device is powered by a reliable, advanced, and feature-rich operating system, allowing the creation of very high throughput and stable wireless networks quickly, safely, and effectively. In addition, the APC 5M-18 supports access point operating mode which extends application scenarios and makes the APC 5M-18 suited for both point to point and point to multipoint networks.
The robust software engine allows the APC 5M-18 to work as bridge or as a router, provides a user-friendly Adobe Flex - based GUI with instant changes, includes useful installation tools (Site survey, Antenna alignment, Delayed reboot, Spectrum analyzer), and also is compatible with Wireless Network Management System for one of the most advanced management tools on the market.
In addition to being extremely fast and functional, the new Deliberant OS has all the features required for the WISP community including router and bridge modes, auto modulation, smart auto-channel, internal UAM (captive portal), WDS (compatible with 3rd party equipment), VLANs, virtual APs, traffic shaping, tools such as antenna alignment, site survey and many more.
iPoll - new PTMP protocol
Deliberant APC series products have an option to use extremely efficient proprietary point-tomultipoint protocol called iPoll. It eliminates mediated access by polling every subscriber sequentially. The data transmission arbitration is accomplished by the access point. The AP sends data and a poll frame to a station and receives data from the polled station before starting to poll other stations. Each station starts sending data once a poll frame is received. Proprietary iPoll protocol enables maximum bandwidth with the lowest possible latency.
Integrated Spectrum Analyzer
All Deliberant APC series devices have an integrated spectrum analyzer. It is a real-time spectrum scanning tool, which provides a graphical signal representation and displays maximum, average, and current signal (noise) levels. This makes the installation of devices very easy and allows spectrum pre-scanning to avoid interference problems.
The Deliberant APC series equipment has external LEDs that can be used for:
Antenna alignment (RSSI level) in a client mode
Seeing average RSSI level on the base-station side
Seeing lowest RSSI level on the base-station side
Seeing number of clients connected on a basestation side
Thresholds can be specified in the GUI for each mode.
IP Standard Compliance
Deliberant APC series equipment are tested against harsh weather conditions to perform well in extreme temperature conditions. Each of the products has an IP standards based rating.
Wall and Pole Mounting Options
Wall and pole mouting options are available for eachof the APC series products and there is no need to buy any additional hardware to be able to mount the unit on the wall.
Small Size and Light Packaging
All the products are very light and small in size to ensure low shipping costs for the end-users.
LinkCalc in a PTMP mode
LinkCalc is a free online application available for all the registered users with a functionality to do the AP coverage calculation according to certain area. All Deliberant products are compatible with a LinkCalc tool together with their main parameters. Besides, it is also possible to do custom Base Station coverage calculations for the 3rd party products.
The main highlights of the LinkCalc tool are:
Easy and quick planning
Support for PTP and PTMP modes
Free online application that can be used with any wireless equipment
Integration with Google Maps
Allows storing, downloading and publishing data about the links online
Downloadable PDF reports can be used by the equipment installerteams in the field
