The Allied Telesis TQ4400e Enterprise-Class Outdoor Wireless Access Point features dual radio for concurrent 2.4/5GHz operations with a high-powered amplifier and IEEE 802.11ac 2ss technology, capable of 1175Mbps raw wireless capacity.The TQ4400e is based on IEEE 802.11ac, with two-spatial-stream Multiple Input and Multiple Output (MIMO), which can deliver more than twice the wireless capacity of 802.11n Access Points (AP)s. The TQ4400e may operate either in standalone or AP-cluster mode, or be controlled by the UWC controller. It is suitable for a wide range of deployments-from SMBs to large Enterprises. In large deployments with centralized control and management by UWC WLAN controller, operating costs are kept low by making the network simple to configure, monitor and manage. For smaller deployments, without the UWC controller, the APs can function either as standalone APs or as a cluster of APs. When operating as a cluster, the APs are grouped to share the configuration and manage the channel automatically, and there is a single point of management, allowing easy control of all Access Points. This reduces the cost for multiple AP configuration and operation management. The TQ4400e is equipped with advanced encryption and authentication IEEE 802.11i capabilities. It protects a WLAN by segmenting public and private access with multiple Service Set Identifications (SSIDs) and VLAN Tagging. Rogue access point detection provides the ability to detect unauthorized access points, thus preventing unauthorized entry to the wireless network.The TQ4400e can be deployed in harsh outdoor environments and is accompanied by a wall/pole mounting kit and four omni-directional antennas. Power is supplied via Power over Ethernet (IEEE 802.11at, PoE Plus).Key Features Flexible management The TQ4400e can operate in either standalone or companion mode with a wireless access controller. This flexibility allows selection of the management approach that best fits the network. For large-scale network deployment, a wireless controller offers a single point of management for operation, administration and maintenance of all your access points. Clustering offers a single management point, which synchronizes provisioning for a group of access points. It also optimizes wireless coverage, due to dynamic channel selection among group members. As a standalone access point, the TQ4400e detects adjacent access points and acts promptly to prevent radio interference. IEEE 802.11ac technology Advanced IEEE 802.11ac technology provides a high-performance wireless link with improved bandwidth, efficiency and robustness, and allows for backward compatibility with older IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n clients. This high level of throughput and range performance supports multimedia applications such as high definition video streaming. The MIMO system improves reliability and capacity, mitigating the fading effects of a multipath environment.. IEEE 802.11e Wireless Multimedia (WMM) Quality of Service (QoS) on WLAN optimizes resource use and fulfills the requirements of video, voice and data applications. Each of these applications creates different latency, bandwidth and packet error rate needs, and QoS caters to each of these needs using data traffic prioritization.
