Rugged Dual-Radio Repeater with 200mW High Transmission Power for Point to Point / Point-to-MultiPoint Applications

Two-RF-Interfaces-In-One-Box Solution
The AE1700-T is an IEEE802.11b-based multifunction device that has two independently configurable RF interfaces. Each RF interface can be configured either as an AP (Access Point) interface, a static bridge interface or a dynamic bridge interface. An AP interface enables easy wireless access for mobile users in public areas. A static bridge interface establishes a point-to-point wireless connection with another bridge through the Wireless Distribution System (WDS) technology. A dynamic bridge interface automatically establishes a point-to-point wireless connection with APs from any vendors through the AP Client technology.

Designed for Outdoor Use
Due to its die-cast weatherproof housing, and 100% IP68 certified, the AE1700-T can work under all rough weather conditions.

Ease of Installation and Management
Through the neat Web-based user interface of the AE1700-T, the step-by-step installation instructions are easy to follow. And, the network administrator can centrally manage the AE1700-T via a Web browser or an SNMP MIB browser. The Windows-based Wireless Network Manager (WNM) utility enables you to view all AE1700-Ts 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.

Flexibility With 4 Operational Modes
Bridge Repeater. In this mode, both interfaces are configured as static bridge interfaces. Packets are stored and forwarded between the two RF interfaces with full bandwidth 11Mbps. It's possible to use several AE1700-Ts if the distance between two locations is long beyond two units' transmission range.

Static AP Repeater. In this mode, one WLAN interface is configured as an AP interface, and the other is configured as a WDS-based bridge interface. The static AP repeater is suitable for situations in which Ethernet wiring between the AP and the network backbone is unaccessible, or for high cost on which the topology of the wireless bridging network is static.

Dynamic AP Repeater. In this mode, one WLAN interface is configured as an AP interface, and the other is configured as an AP client-based dynamic bridge interface. The dynamic AP repeater is suitable for situations in which Ethernet wiring between the AP and the network backbone is unaccessible, or for high cost on which the network topology is stellar (point-to-multipoint).

Dual AP Repeater. In this mode, one WLAN interface is con-figured as an AP interface, and the others is configured as an AP client based dynamic bridge interface. The dynamic AP repeater is suitable for situations in which Ethernet wiring between the AP and the network backbone is unaccessible, or for high cost on which the network topology is stellar (point-to-multipoint).

Dual AP. In this mode, both WLAN interfaces are configured as AP interfaces. The dual AP can handle twice the number of wireless clients than a normal AP. It can be treated as "two APs in a box".n this mode, both WLAN interfaces are configured as AP interfaces. The dual AP can handle twice the number of wireless clients than a normal AP.
