4ipnet’s releases Dual-radio, Dual-band Long Range Access Point/Bridge
Both the OWL610 and OWL620 support AP and bridge mode, as well as a last mile solution for wireless connectivity (WISP). Tunnel-based AP management features 4ipnet Secure WLAN Controllers to secure AP management. Rugged in IP68 metal casing, both devices are weatherproof, watertight, and rust- resistant, making them the perfect choice for outdoor/industrial/harsh environments.
The OWL610 and OWL620 are great for recreation resorts, hotels, hospitals, campuses, and more. Both devices can be managed by the 4ipnet controller (WHG Series) under AP mode, or perform as a Wi-Fi base station in either a public or private wireless access deployment. The gigabit Ethernet port with IEEE 802.3 af PoE, eliminates the need of additional power cable. In addition, the device Power Supply Equipment (PSE) is bundled in the package.
The OWL620 is a concurrent dual-band long range outdoor AP/ bridge that serves both 2.4 and 5Ghz at the same time, providing best Wi-Fi connectivity in indoor high density areas (both 5 Ghz, both 2.4Ghz, or one 5Ghz one 2.4Ghz). Concurrent dual-band is a cost-effective Wi-Fi solution. One device is able to serve twice the amount of concurrent clients, effectively increase connectivity without additional devices, and greatly reduces downtime loss. Dual channel selection reduces possible RF interference from other access points or wireless devices, this guarantees Wi-Fi stability and reliability. With a growing number of smart devices utilizing 5Ghz capability, the OWL620 would best meet the rising demand.
