airPoint-PRO™ TOTAL Access Point with Integrated Antenna

Now enhanced with surge protection and a N type connector for an external antenna option 

airPoint-PRO™ TOTAL is a high performance 2.4 GHz 802.11b compatible Access Point and a 13dBi Flat Panel Antenna integrated into one single enclosure.  The Euro version of airPoint-PRO™ TOTAL has a 9dBi antenna to conform to ETSI regulations. The airPoint-PRO™ TOTAL is normally used by WISPs and wireless installers. airPoint-PRO™ TOTAL now comes with new enhancements like Surge Protection Circuit and an external N Connector.

The airPoint-PRO™ TOTAL product offers the groundbreaking LongRange™ radio integrated with the high performance antenna to provide impressive +24dBm to +30 dBm adjustable Transmit Power and -107 dBi Receive Sensitivity. The integrated antenna has been designed from the ground up to offer superior noise and interference immunity. The antenna element features +13dB gain (the Euro version has a 9dBi antenna to conform to ETSI standards), narrow beam width of 28 degrees and greater than 18dBm front to back ratio. smartBridges' superior design of the radio receiver allows it to listen to the smallest incoming signals. Superior receiver and transmitter characteristics result in long-range wireless coverage. The built-in high performance antenna is normally sufficient for most of the subscribers.

Housed in a NEMA 4X weatherproof casing, the airPoint-PRO™ TOTAL is built to perform reliably under all climatic conditions. The industrial grade electronics delivers reliable performance in all climates, withstanding temperature extremes of -40 C to +65 C (-40 F to +150 F). This device can be installed anywhere - atop a tower, on a rooftop or in indoor environments like shop floors and factories.

The airPoint-PRO™ TOTAL incorporates some innovative ways to simplify installation. The self-contained unit can be mounted on a pole or wall. With the included powerShot™, a standard PoE injector, the airPoint-PRO™ TOTAL can be powered over the standard Ethernet CAT 5 cable. The mounting brackets are designed to allow installation in either Vertical or Horizontal polarity. In addition, the device features a unique method of connecting outdoor Ethernet CAT5 cable. The device has a 1 foot CAT5 cable terminating into a weather-proof RJ 45 female connector. The installer can extend the CAT5 cable to desired length of up to 100 meters (327 feet). airPoint-PRO™ TOTAL features plug-and-play installation that eliminates complicated client software installation and driver conflicts with various Operating Systems. The completeness of the product allows lower installation skills to significantly reduce the provisioning cost. The net result is a quick and efficient deployment with lower start-up costs, reduced operating costs and faster network rollouts.

LongRange radio performance

airPointPro™ TOTAL features smartBridges’ proprietary LongRange™ radio design to deliver high data throughput over long operating range. smartBridges' superior design of the radio receiver allows it to listen to the smallest incoming signals. These superior receiver and transmitter characteristics result in the long-range wireless coverage that extends over 34 kilometers (21 miles) in free open space. Better range translates directly into lower wireless infrastructure cost when the need is to cover a large area.

To increase the data range and ensure wireless network connectivity, airPoint Pro™ TOTAL adopts Dynamic Rate Scaling, thus always seeking to connect at 11 Mbps then automatically scaling to 5.5 Mbps, as well as 2 Mbps and 1 Mbps. When the signal strength increases, its speed also increases until it reaches the optimal rate, ensuring the highest level of service and the best continuity for data transmission.

Simple and Fast Installations

airPointPro™ TOTAL has been designed with ease of installation in mind. airPointPro™ TOTAL simplifies subscriber installation with its Power over Ethernet (PoE) operation. This allows the airPointPro™ TOTAL to be located up to 100 meters (327 feet) away from the power point. The PoE injector powerShot™ is included with every device. A unique weatherproof RJ45 connector for the airPointPro™ TOTAL allows quick installation of the Ethernet CAT5 cable through the building walls. 

Remote Monitoring and Configuration Tools

The simpleMonitor™, is an advanced SNMP Management tool designed specifically to simplify wireless network management complexities. It helps manage the wireless-centric network device parameters such as, channel selection, network association, data rate, traffic statistics, site survey etc. Its graphical user interface is extremely intuitive for navigating, examining, and managing the airPointPro™ TOTAL.  In addition, an advanced network management system simpleNMS™ provides seamless integration for convenient remote management of the airPointPro™ TOTAL devices in far away locations. The remote management capability of the airPointPro™ TOTAL is crucial for cost effective management of the wide area network from the Network operating center.

High Security operation

airPointPro™ TOTAL is equipped with a choice of security levels to protect the data. It comes with standard Wi-Fi prescribed Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) security using 40-bit Key. Additionally airPointPro™ TOTAL also offers enhanced 64-bit or 128-bit key encryption for superior data protection. Another key security features built into airPointPro™ TOTAL includes MAC level security that restricts the access to pre-registered wireless clients base on their MAC ID.

Feature Rich Operational Modes

The airPointPro™ TOTAL apart from being a standards based 802.11b Access point, which ensures connectivity with any 802.11b standard Client devices, operates in many operating modes. These modes of operation allow the airPointPro™ TOTAL to be deployed in various environment and situations.  The various modes supported by airPointPro™ TOTAL are:

  • PtP and PtM modes,
  • Repeater mode,
  • Client Bridge mode

Point-to-Point Mode

The airPointPro™ TOTAL in the point-to-Point mode is used to connect two LAN networks as in corporate Building to building setups or can be used as backhauls connecting distance POPs to the central Network operating centers.

Point-to-Multi Point Mode

In the Point-to-Multi Point Mode the network is placed as a star network. The access point is at the center of the star network and multiple clients connect to the access point. This network is most commonly deployed in hotspots and by WISPs.

Repeater mode

The repeater mode of airPointPro™ TOTAL allows operators to reach those hard to reach areas. The airPointPro™ TOTAL now supports this special mode that enables the deployment of Wireless networks over large areas a reality. On one side the airPointPro™ TOTAL will associate with a distant Access Point. On the other side the same airPointPro™ TOTAL functions as a normal Access Point. This operational mode requires all the devices to support the optional “Address 4 field” of the IEEE specifications. All smartBridges devices support this.

Client Bridge mode

The airPoint-PRO TOTAL in client Bridge mode operates as Ethernet client, and you can associate it with any smartBridges access point on the LAN. airPoint-PRO TOTAL in Client-Bridge Mode will associate only with those access points which support "Address 4" field in IEEE 802.11b Specifications. This Ethernet client supports the multiple PCs and also supporting PPPOE.  Also a special Roaming option is provided, which allows the airPoint-PRO TOTAL in client bridge mode to associate with the access points sharing the same ESSID and can switch in between them automatically.

Versatile Access point

These feature and modes make airPointPro™ TOTAL a versatile Access point for a wide range of applications like:

  • Hotels and Hotspots
  • WISPs
  • Back Haul LinksResidential and Business Broadband
  • Warehouses and Shipyards
  • Oil Fields
