PLANET WDAP-1800AX 1800Mbps Dual Band 802.11ax Wireless AP, supporting MU-MIMO, Wave 2.0, OFDMA, Seamless Roaming, Beamforming and BSS Coloring technology, provides a maximum wireless speed of 1200Mbps in the 5GHz band and 600Mbps in the 2.4GHz band. It comes with the IP67-rated aluminum case protected from contact with harmful dust and water. By connecting high-gain antenna through the flexible N-type connectors, the system integrator can easily assist customers in achieving various outdoor long-distance applications under rough weather in any harsh environment. The WDAP-1800AX also offers the 20KV surge protection for wire cable interface that can greatly improve the durability of the product.
Benefits of MU-MIMO, Wave 2, OFDMA, Seamless Roaming, Beamforming and BSS Coloring
The WDAP-1800AX can be installed in public areas such as hotspots, airports and conferences as OFDMA, a multi-user version of OFDM, enables the concurrent AP to communicate (uplink and downlink) with multiple clients by assigning subsets of subcarriers called resource units (RUs) to the individual clients. With MU-MIMO and Seamless Roaming technologies, it provides a better Wi-Fi user experience, reducing the likelihood of users turning off Wi-Fi and putting more load on the cellular network. Beamforming is to improve your Wi-Fi signal when you are far away from your router. The BSS color is a numerical identifier of the BSS. 802.11ax radios that are able to differentiate between BSSs using BSS color identifier when other radios transmit on the same channel.
OFDMA (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access) Benefits
Helps transmit small and large packets together to reduce bandwidth burden and improve data transmission performance
Transmitting data at the same time can effectively reduce the transmission delay for longer frame and low-speed transmission.
Improves the overall traffic quality, and effectively uses bandwidth in an environment where multiple people use the Internet.
Increases the number of devices that can be connected to the AP.
Reduces the power consumption of the device by way of the use of low bandwidth.
Beamforming is to improve your Wi-Fi signal when you are far away from your router. When you use beamforming, Wi-Fi beamforming narrows the focus of that router signal, sending it directly to your devices in a straight line, thus minimizing surrounding signal interference and increasing the strength of the signal that ultimately bring you the following benefits:
Extend your Wi-Fi coverage
Deliver a more stable Wi-Fi connection
Deliver better Wi-Fi throughput
Reduce router interference
The BSS color is a numerical identifier of the BSS. 802.11ax radios that are able to differentiate between BSSs using BSS color identifier when other radios transmit on the same channel. If the color is the same, this is considered to be an intra-BSS frame transmission. In other words, the transmitting radio belongs to the same BSS as the receiver. If the detected frame has a different BSS color from its own, then the STA considers that frame as an inter-BSS frame from an overlapping BSS.
WPA3 Next Generation Security for Your WLAN Solution
WPA3 is the next generation Wi-Fi security technology that provides the most advanced security protocol to the market. WPA3 makes your connection more secure by preventing hackers from easily cracking your password no matter how simplified the password is. WPA3 can also provide more reliable password-based authentication, so it can better protect the security of individual users.
* WDAP-1800AX only supports WPA3-Personal.
Super Power Dual Band WLAN Solution
PLANET WDAP-1800AX, adopting the IEEE 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6 standard, provides a high-speed transmission. The maximum wireless speed in 2.4GHz band is up to 11AX of 574Mbps, and in the 5GHz band is up to 11AX of 1201Mbps. Both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless connections can also be used simultaneously.
Advanced Security and Rigorous Authentication
The WDAP-1800AX supports WPA/WPA2/WPA3 wireless encryptions, and also supports the WPA2 Enterprise, WPA/WPA2 Enterprise, which can effectively prevent eavesdropping by unauthorized users or bandwidth occupied by unauthenticated wireless access. Furthermore, any users are granted or denied access to the wireless LAN network based on the ACL (Access Control List) that the administrator pre-established.
Flexible, Durable and Reliable Outdoor Characteristics
To reach maximum reliability in the harsh environment, the WDAP-1800AX comes with IP67-rated Aluminum Die-cast Housing, capable of withstanding wide temperature ranging from -40 to 70 degrees C. Designed with the IEEE 802.3at PoE+ (Power over Ethernet) power scheme, the WDAP-1800AX can be easily installed in the areas where power outlets are not available. Furthermore, it is also suitable to be integrated with PLANET Renewable Power PoE System to offer farther wireless service in remote areas.
Optimized Efficiency in AP Management
The brand-new GUI configuration wizard helps the system administrator easily set up the WDAP-1800AX step by step. Besides, the built-in Wi-Fi analyzer provides real-time channel utilization to prevent channel overlapping to assure greater performance. With the automatic transmission power mechanism, distance control and scheduling reboot setting, the WDAP-1800AX is easy for the administrator to deploy and manage without on-site maintenance. Moreover, you can use PLANET NMS-500 or NMS-1000V AP control function to deliver wireless profiles to multiple APs simultaneously, thus making the central management simple.
