The mobile ORiNOCO AP-4900MR-LR is a high capacity, high power, dual-radio mesh access point for public safety applications. Providing double the capacity of single-radio mesh access points, the dual-radio architecture separates mesh traffic from client access traffic. The ORiNOCO Mesh Creation Protocol (OMCP) enables mesh connections using the 4.9 GHz radio while the 2.4 GHz radio is used exclusively for Wi-Fi client coverage. The product supports sophisticated security features such as IEEE 802.11i and AES encryption. Its design enables flexible and easy deployment on the interior or exterior of a public safety vehicle. The system can be powered by the vehicle’s 12 volt electrical system. The unit includes two N-male connectors for external antenna options.
An addition to Proxim’s award-winning Tsunami MP.11 family, the mobile Model 4954 subscriber unit enables high speed wireless point-to-multipoint connections for public safety networks using Proxim’s time-tested Wireless Outdoor Routing Protocol (WORP). It provides mobile roaming with fast handoff speeds up to 120 mph, QoS capabilities, dynamic data rate selection (DDRS), and advanced security with AES encryption. The subscriber unit’s design enables flexible and easy deployment on the interior or exterior of a public safety vehicle. The system can be powered by the vehicle’s 12 volt electrical system. The unit includes an N-female connector for external antenna options.
Mobile point-to-multipoint networks constructed using the Tsunami MP.11 family of products are most useful in areas where line-of-sight or near line-of-sight is possible. In this case, the deterministic nature of Proxim’s WORP can provide superior performance.
Mobile mesh networks built with the AP-4900 series are most useful in areas where line-of-sight is not possible. In this scenario, mesh networks provide better coverage, enabling communications in areas where line-of-sight technologies cannot reach.
"With the introduction of these products, Proxim Wireless is expanding our public safety product line to support mobile, in-vehicle applications," said Bert Williams, Vice President of Marketing at Proxim Wireless. "Our support for mobile mesh and point-to-multipoint configurations in the 4.9 GHz band offers public safety agencies enhanced flexibility in designing mobile broadband networks supporting in-field data access for first responders."
The mobile ORiNOCO AP-4900MR-LR mesh access point and the mobile Tsunami MP.11 Model 4954 subscriber unit are also available now. [October 29, 2007]
