Proxim 700 026 132 ORiNOCO AP-2000 5GHz Kit (FCC)
Broadband Wireless Networking for the Enterprise
The ORiNOCO AP-2000 5GHz Kit enables network managers to support networks
operating on either the Wi-Fi 2.4 GHz (11 Mbps) or 5GHz (54 Mbps) frequencies.
The Kit includes an 802.11a radio for use with the ORiNOCO AP-2000 Access Point,
designed to support 802.11a client devices in an existing ORiNOCO wireless LAN.
The Kit includes an antenna fixture which consists of two ‘rabbitear’ antenna.
The antenna fixture can be installed while the AP-2000 remains on the wall.
Works on the AP-2500 too!
* Dual mode 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz – Supports networks operating on either the Wi-Fi
2.4 GHz (11 Mbit/s) or 5 GHz (54 Mbit/s) frequencies.
* 54 Mbit/s – Enables faster response time and the ability to run more
‘bandwidth hungry’ applications.
* Customized antenna – Specifically designed for 5 GHz transmission, delivering
increased performance and range
Higher data rate and throughput
The 5GHz band, which is less heavily used than the 2.4GHz, requires less
bandwidth sharing, resulting in overall higher throughput. In addition, with
more available radio channels, higher capacity systems can be deployed to allow
more users in the same area to use the network simultaneously. The 5GHz band is
also free from interferences such as from microwave ovens and cordless phones.
The AP-2000 5GHz Kit includes a customized antenna specifically designed for 5
GHz transmission, delivering increased performance and range.
Migration path for investment protection
The ORiNOCO AP-2000 5GHz Kit offers a cost effective solution to existing
AP-2000 infrastructure so there is no need to replace complete access point
units. The AP-2000 platform, with its 233MHz StrongArm 110 processor, has enough
power to simultaneously support the new 54 Mbit/s 5GHz technology together with
established 11Mbps Wi-Fi technology, as well as be ready for new 802.11g
The AP-2000 5GHz Kit is supported by the AP-2000 and the AP-2500.
