Outdoor modules for wireless networking

19 September 2007 Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

Poynting Antennas has released two new products designed to take full advantage of the 802.11g standard, while maintaining backward compatibility with the large installed base of 802.11b (WiFi) devices. The onboard electronics designed for long-range outdoor use offer a variety of features like 802.1x authentication, WEP, WPA support and Web-based configuration for the installer, offering nominal data rates of 108 Mbps in Turbo mode.

The low-cost ClientPoynt is provided with mounting brackets, an integrated directional 15 dBi antenna and 20 m CAT5 cable with PoE (Power over Ethernet) injector for easy installation at client premises.

The AccessPoynt is provided in a hardy weatherproof aluminium enclosure for maximum electrical shielding and environmental durability. The AccessPoynt is provided with 20 m UV-stabilised, shielded CAT5 cable and an Ethernet gland for easier installation at elevated sites and also to reduce interference to and from neighbouring installations. It is also PoE-enabled, and the PoE injector is provided with the product. The installer can simply connect the AccessPoynt to a suitable antenna, eg, a 2,45 GHz sector or omni-antenna (not provided) via the external N(f) connector, plug into a wired network and power up, to deploy a reliable, long range wireless access network for office or residential complex, game farm, or a variety of other applications.

For best results, users wanting to connect to the AccessPoynt should be provided with ClientPoynt devices, which can easily provide up to 10 km ranges at 5 Mbps when used with a 16 dBi antenna on the AccessPoynt. The AccessPoynt will also work with any 802.11b/g compliant wireless clients and can support a large number of concurrent client connections.
