CW-400 A1

eXtreme Power Wave2 4x 11N/ac 2.4/5Ghz 2×2 Ceiling / Wall PoE Access Point

Cerio CW-400 A1 eXtreme Power Wave2 4x 11N/ac 2.4/5Ghz 2×2 Ceiling / Wall PoE Access Point is an AC1300 Wireless concurrent dual band WiFi device.CW-400 A1 bundles Cerio CenOS 5.0 Software Core with Built-in CAP (controller-less AP) mode. The CAP mode can centralize management of up to 64 units of APs. Paired with CenOS 5.0 software, the CW-400 A1 also supports two additional operate modes, Authentication Access Point Mode (AAP Mode with built-in 802.1x RADIUS Server) and WISP Repeater Mode (to extend the coverage of an existing network). This device is perfect for enterprise deployment such as corporate offices, public venues, conferences, and other high traffic indoor environments.

The CW-400 A1 Ceiling / Wall PoE Access Point Built-indual band 2×2 3dBi Omni Antennas. The antenna diversity design enhances the connection reliability to improve data transmission capability. It supports safe ceiling, wall and T-Bar Rail mounting through its mounting bracket lock design. Users must use a thin tool to properly remove the device from its installation location, which ultimately reduces device theft as well as damage. CW-400 A1’s 11ac chipset design provides enterprise grade CPU performance, allowing the device to handle up to 200 concurrent clients. This 11ac dual-band AP hardware also includes 802.3af/at PoE capabilities that allows power and data to be supplied to the unit using CAT5 Ethernet cable.
CW-400 A1 supports fast wireless roaming 802.11r/k protocol for seamless roaming and smart client handoff.
