L-com Brand CPE Wireless Access Points
Today's wireless market, more specifically the outdoor wireless market, continues to demand higher transmit power, greater dependability and advanced feature sets, all while keeping the client-side cost down. L-com brand Customer-Premises Equipment (CPEs) are all-in-one cost-effective weatherproof wireless devices featuring high output power as well as all the essential features for both operating as an Access Point or a CPE Client. This dual approach offers greater flexibility and reduced inventory stock as these units can perform all that is required for establishing reliable wireless networks.
The L-com CPEs have been developed with all the latest enhancements in wireless security but also with backwards compatibility to fit into pre-existing networks. They feature WEP, WPA, WPA2, WPA-PSK, 802.1x as well as other security features to best meet your specific needs.
Two new models are available for all your WiFi coverage needs.
Four Operating Modes
Access Point (AP) Mode: Allows wireless equipment such as Smart Phones or Laptops to be connected to a wired network. In this mode the CPE unit is typically connected to a router on a wired network. Network/internet connectivity can then be provided to the wireless devices connected to the CPE unit. The CPE unit provides security features that allow only select wireless devices to connect to it.
Wireless Client Mode: In this mode the CPE unit connects to another active AP as if it was a wireless device like a Laptop. Once connected it can then provide network/internet connectivity to wired devices via its Ethernet port. This mode is ideal if you need to provide connectivity to devices without wireless functionality.
Bridge Mode: Wireless bridges are typically used to connect two or more network segments that are physically separated. Bridging mode is achieved by using Wireless Distribution System (WDS) settings in the CPE unit. This allows only the selected CPEs to communicate with each other and denies access to other wireless devices trying to access them. Bridges can be used in Point-to-Point or Point-to Multipoint applications. An example of a Point-to-Point bridge application is connecting two commercial buildings. An example of a Point-to-Multipoint application is connecting multiple buildings on a college campus.
Repeater Mode: This mode is used to extend the range of an existing AP. This mode is also ideal when an obstruction is preventing wireless connectivity within a select area. Repeaters are commonly used when providing wireless connectivity to multi-story buildings and large homes.
These CPE units can be used in any market that requires wireless network/internet connectivity. Common markets include:
