Picture of AE 1700-A 802.11b Outdoor AP/ Bridge

Rugged AP/Bridge with 200mW high transmission power for Wi-Fi services and point to point application

Designed for Outdoor Use
Due to its ruggidized weatherproof housing, the AE1700-A can work under rough weather conditions. Furthermore, support for IEEE 802.3af-compliant PoE makes power line wiring unnecessary. The capability of remote management via SNMP and HTTP is provided to eliminate the cost of on-site-maintainance.

Wireless Access Point
The high performace and stable InterEpoch AE1700-A provides easy wireless access for mobile users in public areas. The AE1700-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 AE1700-A provides a highly reliable wireless point-to-point 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 t he WDS link quality indicator and WDS link health monitoring features to check signal quality based on a remote point-to-point testing mechanism.

Ensure Great Security
The AE1700-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 AE1700-A, the step-by-step installation instructions are easy to follow. And, the network administrator can centrally manage the AE1700-A via a Web browser or an SNMP MIB browser. The Windows-based Wireless Network Manager (WNM) utility enables you to view all AE1700-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 ablility to configure, control, monitor, update, report, diagnose and trobleshoot the WLAN via a single Window GUI.
