4ipnet OWL530 is an enterprise-grade, dual-band 802.11n outdoor access point, designed specifically to withstand harsh weather conditions in outdoor and industrial environments.

Featuring a 2x2 MIMO radio that can support up to 300 Mbps data rate, the OWL530 is ideal for providing wire-like performance that is crucial for businesses. Traffic prioritization ensures that bandwidth hungry applications such as HD videos can stream perfectly, while enforcing strict QoS requirements for VoIP and mission critical services.

The most unique feature of the OWL530 is its ability to operate in modes other than as a traditional access point servicing clients. For organizations wishing to establish high speed point-to-point or point-to-multipoint links, the OWL530 can be coupled with directional antennas to form encrypted WDS bridges. If coverage extension is needed, the OWL530 can act as a wireless repeater and propagate wireless signals with minimal configuration. And lastly, for wireless ISPs looking to provide last mile solutions, the OWL530 can act as a wireless CPE with bandwidth limitations that can be assigned by the service provider.

The OWL530’s exterior is an IP68 rated, rust-resistant metal housing that is extremely sturdy and flexible to deploy. With U-shaped mounting brackets, the OWL530 can be easily fixed to walls or mounted on poles. The two external N-type connectors can be coupled with antennas of varying gains, allowing wireless coverage to be optimized for each deployment scenario. Combined with PoE (Power over Ethernet) support that eliminates the need for traditional power sources, the OWL530 offers an unparalleled deployment flexibility.

When used with the 4ipnet WHG Controller, the OWL530 supports a wide-array of value added applications required by enterprises and organizations, such as bandwidth control, user authentication and billing, centralized WLAN management, and much more. Along with stringent yet customizable security policies, the flexible and fully-featured OWL530 becomes the ideal choice for wireless connectivity in all types of outdoor deployments.
