Wireless Communication for Public Hotspots, Enterprises and Point-to-Point Bridging Applications

Wireless Access Point

The high performace and stable AirEpoch AE 3000-A provides easy wireless access for mobile users in public areas. The AE 3000-A is fully compliant with any Wi-Fi certified wireless LAN client and provides anywhere, anytime wireless connectivity for mobile users who want to share files, send emails or access the Internet.

Wireless Bridge
The AE 3000-A provides a highly reliable wireless point-topoint networking solution for distant locations. The standard WDS (Wireless Distribution System) technology provides up to 6 static point-to-point bringing links. The AP client technology automatically establishes dynamic bridging links with APs from any vendors. The AP client technology is very suitable for networks that needs link backup or for point-to-multipoint bridging applications. For easy diagnostics, the Windows-based Wireless Network Manager (WNM) utility provides the WDS link quality indicator and WDS link health monitoring features to check signal quality based on a remote point-to-point testing mechanism.

Suitable for Public Wireless Access
The advanced model of AE 3000-A contains features that are especially useful in public areas such as hotspots and enterprises. The wireless client isolation feature prevents wireless hackers from attacking other wireless subscribers?computers. The AP load balancing feature enables wireless client associations and traffic load to be shared among all the APs within a group.

Ensure Great Security
The AE 3000-A can authenticate and authorize wireless users in organizations, enterprises, or public areas by the IEEE 802.1x standard. It communicates with a back-end RADIUS (Remote Authentication User Dial-In Service) server to see if a wireless user is allowed to access the wireless network. Windows XP has built-in support for IEEE802.1x. WEP and WPA are also supported for better wireless security.

Ease of Installation and Management
Through the neat Web-based user interface of the AE 3000-A, the step-by-step installation instructions are easy to follow. And, the network administrator can centrally manage the AE 3000-A via a Web browser or an SNMP MIB browser. The Windows-based Wireless Network Manager (WNM) utility enables you to view all AE 3000-As within LAN via Auto Discovery regardless of IP address settings. The WDS link quality indicator and WDS link health monitoring features check signal quality based on a remote point-to-point testing mechanism for easy diagnostics. WNM provides versatile and cost-effective WLAN management functionality, including the ability to configure, control, monitor, update, report, diagnose and troubleshoot the WLAN via a single Window GUI.
