WAP-500N - 300Mbps 802.11n Outdoor Wireless AP

WAP-500N - 300Mbps 802.11n Outdoor Wireless AP
WAP-500N - 300Mbps 802.11n Outdoor Wireless AP


Cost-effective Wireless Solution with Superior Performance
PLANET WAP-500N 300Mbps 802.11n Outdoor Wireless AP offers a better range and excellent throughput than those of the traditional 802.11g wireless device. Via the adjustable transmit power and RP-SMA antenna connectors, it can directly connect with various high gain antennas to extend wider coverage, thus heightening the performance of a long-distance connectivity.
Designed for Various Requirements
The WAP-500N is specially designed for outdoor wireless access solution that is capable of providing 360 degrees of coverage to wireless users with Internet access through the included 5dBi omnidirectional antennas on campus, villa or rural area. Besides, subscribers are able to achieve various wireless connectivities (AP, Client, WDS, Repeater and WISP) by replacing any high-gain or directional outdoor antennas, thus meeting comprehensive application requirements.
Multiple SSIDs with VLAN Tagging
Multiple SSIDs can broadcast up to four wireless networks with different names. For management purposes, the IEEE 802.1Q VLAN supported allows multiple VLAN tags to be mapped to multiple SSIDs to distinguish the wireless access. This makes it possible for the WAP-500N to work with Managed Ethernet switches to have VLAN assigned for a different access level and authority.
Flexible and Reliable Outdoor Characteristics
The WAP-500N is definitely suitable for wireless IP surveillance, and bridge link of building to building and backbone of public service. Additionally, the self-healing capability keeps connection alive all the time. With the IP55-rated outdoor UV-resistant enclosure, the WAP-500N can perform normally under rigorous weather conditions, meaning it can be installed in any harsh, outdoor environments. With the proprietary Power over Ethernet (PoE) design, the WAP-500N can be easily installed in the areas where power outlets are not available.
Advanced Security and Rigorous Authentication
The WAP-500N supports 152-bit WEP, WPA / WPA2, WPA-PSK and WPA2-PSK wireless encryptions, the advanced WPA2-AES mechanism and 802.1X RADIUS authentication, which can effectively prevent eavesdropping by unauthorized users or bandwidth occupied by unauthenticated wireless access. Furthermore, any users are granted or denied access to the wireless LAN network based on the ACL (Access Control List) that the administrator pre-established.
Easy Deployment and Management
With user-friendly Web UI and comprehensive management features including client limit control and wireless traffic shaping, the WAP-500N is easy to limit the client access and inbound/outbound bandwidth control, even for users who have no experience in setting up a wireless network. Furthermore, with the Planet Smart Discovery Utility, SNMP and diagnostics tools, the WAP-500N is convenient to be managed remotely.
