Taipei, Taipei City, Taiwan, 2013/07/23 - 4ipnet, a leading provider of cost-effective WLAN solutions for hospitality, education, and enterprises, today announced the OWL530, the most affordable dual-band 802.11a/b/g/n outdoor access point to join its OWL-series product line - 4ipnet.com.
The rugged IP68-rated metal housing of the OWL530 is weatherproof, watertight and rust-resistant, making it an ideal solution for deployments in harsh conditions. For example, the protective vent plug can not only prevent salt corrosion, but also moderate condensation and assist in heat dissipation. Furthermore, the ground wire can prevent damage caused by potential power surges.
On the performance end, the OWL530 supports up to 300Mbps data rate with its 2x2:2 MIMO solution. Combined with its 802.3af compliant PoE gigabit Ethernet interface, the OWL530 ensures smooth and uninterrupted multimedia usage such as video streaming. The two detachable N-type external antennas also provide the OWL530 a much greater degree of flexibility when faced with the varying requirements of each deployment scenario.
The OWL530’s real value is in its ability to operate in multiple modes. For price conscious users who demand broadband connectivity, the OWL530 eliminates the need for the expensive trenching of fiber cabling by operating in WDS-mode. WDS-mode enables the OWL530 to establish multiple WDS links and bridge neighboring 4ipnet APs together. With a high-power signal and long-range coverage, the OWL530 can also operate in AP-mode to effectively serve Wi-Fi clients. Lastly, the OWL530 can be configured in CPE-mode as an ideal last-mile solution for wireless ISPs (WISPs). The diversity of applications makes the OWL530 a perfect choice for any outdoor deployment.
When deployed in conjunction with 4ipnet’s WHG-series controllers, the OWL530 provides an array of value-added functions, such as client load-balancing, bandwidth control, billable hotspot authentication, and guest access. With the OWL530, 4ipnet continues to provide reliable and feature-rich, yet affordable, wireless networks to organizations and businesses of all scales and types.
