OW-500 A1

eXtreme Power Wave2 4X 2×2 +18dBi Tri-Band Outdoor Bridge/AP

CERIO’s OW-500 A1 eXtreme Power Wave2 4X 2×2 +18dBi Tri-Band Outdoor Bridge/AP provides superior functionality with an elegant and highly durable housing design. It’s a concurrent Tri-Band access point with the latest MU-MIMO Wave2 technology for improvements in the speed, reliability and quality of wireless communications, provides wireless 4 channel (4x speed) simultaneous operation in 2.4GHz, 5GHz(Radio1)and 5GHz(Radio2) wireless coverage for maximum flexibility. It supports a maximum throughput of 2.2Gbps, up to 400Mbps on the 2.4GHz frequency band and 867Mbps are on the 5GHz(Radio1) and 5GHz (Radio1)frequency band. In addition to the multi-radio AP Station(Access Point) that can be for more wireless client, It is also best for long-distance point-to-multipoint wireless deployment. A 5Ghz Radio can be used to bridge the upper WiFi connection while reconnecting. With another 5Ghz Radio to the down WiFi bridge connection, it can easily complete a one-to-many bridge and then bridge for long distance transmissions.
