IO-POWER APM-101RH/102RH/103RH Series

802.11a/g/n Multiple Hops Bridge

Outdoor WiFi MIMO Wireless Access Point

The APM-100RH series are enterprise and carrier-grade 802.11a/g/n Outdoor Wireless Access Point which offers customer a robust and high performing solution for PTP / PTMP / Hotline / Hotzone applications in both license-free 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands. The APM-100RH series are suitable for  campuses, hospitality, healthcare, warehousing and wider metropolitan area deployments.

The APM-100RH series offer three major features.

n  Multi-Hops feature with low loss of backbone throughput:

The throughput reduces about 5~8Mbps/each Hop. From the 5th Hop on, the Throughput will not reduce anymore. The throughput can be remained more than 120Mbps. Even after 10 Hops, the latency is still within 10ms.

103R(H) has 3 RF modules, so it can support 3 backbones for the gathering of wider bandwidth from different directions.

n  Multi-Hops + Mesh Networking System: This solution is for carrier-grade project that needs to provide wireless internet service or large-scale wireless surveillance image transmission.

To solve the problem that the normal internet system breakdown, Mesh Network features such as auto route selection and self-healing is adopted here.

n  Multi-Hops + Mesh Networking System + High-Mobility: This is for carrier-grade project that provide high-mobility transmission service in a large area. EX: wireless high-mobility surveillance transmission in city roads or highway, railway high-mobility data transmission, rapid transit (subway) high-mobility data transmission, and even high-speed train high-mobility data transmission.

Mesh Networking System, collocating with the wide-bandwidth of Multi-Hops and the specially designed Mesh Client, high-mobility data can be transmitted fast and automatically via Mesh Networking System.

APM-100RH series have the advantages as below:

Flexible wireless backbone deployment options

Multiple radio interfaces were integrated by IO-Power’s core data switching technology inside the APM-100RH series. Each radio interface can be configured independently to meet different wireless connectivity purposes. With the fast data switching between multiple radio interfaces, the backbone throughput will remain in a high level even after several relays between APs.

High-performance wireless backbone

With the new generation 802.11N MIMO technology, the APM-100RH, offer data link rate up to 300Mbps in each single radio interface, 160Mbps bandwidth. Short Guard Interval and Frames Aggregation methodology configurations improve the efficient of backbone usage, with total data link rate 300Mbps and 320Mbps bandwidth.

Security and efficient client connectivity

The nimble QoS (Quality of Service) configuration provides flexible management of user’s access bandwidth of wireless connectivity. Perfect integrated with central RADIUS server and data encryption technique, the APM-100RH series provide a secure wireless connectivity for each client device.

Support CPE mode link functionality (ability to interconnect with other manufacturers products)

Focus on WISP Last Mile application demand and on-line integration of other brands of wireless devices need special features designed with the wireless station CPE mode, this features will let wireless system operators and SI able to design more secure wireless transmission systems, reduce the risk of integrating wireless transmission systems are compatible.

Support low speed mobility wireless roaming handover function of 50-100 km (actual support speed and transmission distance, depend on wireless signal strength)

The low speed moving wireless transmission requirements for general needs, specifically designed to support wireless roaming handover function at low speed of 50-100 km, through the advanced features of the roaming setting function at low speed, in wireless station setting 3 set of roaming wireless devices frequency, handover for low speed mobility wireless roaming.

Support multiple hops backhaul transmit system in interruption situation and after backhaul system backup failover link features

Multiple hops backhaul transmission system, faced hops transmission interrupt issues, through the secondary AP backup setting of the advanced features, to prepare set 3 AP SSID and Frequency for backup link by wireless station mode, it will automatically fix the link mechanisms, and will reduce the risks of backhaul transmission line.

System construction of the antenna set-up and environment detection and signal strength display online reaction functions

C. wireless link and transmission mechanism of software testing to confirm the transmission bandwidth wireless system exceeding above 50Mbps

D. dynamic wireless signals and transmission rate and display icons, in order to facilitate wireless engineers determine the wireless system operation stability

E. by the AP side (your base) and AC side (client or monitoring) detects each other link signals and transmission rates and information display mechanisms such as encryption or not, in order to facilitate wireless engineers and technicians for the future maintenance, judge signals at both ends of the wireless system operation

Mesh Networking Function (Optional software)

When installing backbones in a large-scale area, Mesh Networking function can be selected to offer special features as below:

A. Mesh data transmission with OSI (Open System Interconnection Reference Model) Layer 2, Data Link Layer, can fasten the data handover and self-healing for connection, and lower the bandwidth loss because of Hopping. It can offer 100Mbps bandwidth after 10 Hops.
B. Automatically searching for the best route
C. Automatically disconnecting and searching available connections
D. Automatically balancing data rate
E. Automatically refreshing the node information of Mesh Networking System
F. Automatically scanning and choosing channels
G. Automatically update the system via Server or Gateway
H. Automatically forming internet cloud
I. Support fast transmission via automatic route searching
J. Support fast roaming calculation of signals and data rate
K. Support wide-bandwidth Mesh Networking transmission

L. Support Multi-Gateway for backup use

Hi-mobile with Mesh Networking System (selectable software)

Mesh Networking System, collocating with the wide-bandwidth of Multi-Hops and the specially designed Mesh Client, can build Mesh high-mobility Networking, offering 100Mbps high-mobility throughput at 200KM/h.
