AP 5181

AP 5181

Rugged enterprise-class access point designed for harsh environments
Motorola’s AP 5181 Access Point, specifically designed for outdoor use, delivers enterprise-class wireless networking in harsh environments. In addition to a NEMA 4X-modified housing, severe-weather features include integrated lightning arrestors, surge protectors, extreme temperature range operation and an array of antenna and power accessories. The self-assembling, self-healing mesh capability supports Wi-Fi multimedia (WMM) extensions to ensure quality of service (QoS) while cost-effectively extending corporate networks beyond and between buildings — with no need to install additional Ethernet cable or fiber. With integrated router, firewall, DHCP, AAA and hotspot services, the AP 5181 offers a superior outdoor WLAN solution.

Extend the reach of your corporate
network — cost-effectively
When used as either an access port or a mesh node, the AP 5181 can operate wirelessly, even in harsh conditions. Outdoor applications don’t mean sacrificing security or manageability — support for today’s standards- based security protocols helps ensure enterprise-level network protection, while a wide variety of administration options provides simple, yet powerful management tools. Because the AP 5181 operates wirelessly, all of this can be implemented outdoors without the added cost of installing network cable or fiber.

Cost-effective safe extension of the corporate network in hazardous locations
The AP 5181 offers the certifications required for safe operation in the hazardous environments commonly found in the petrochemical, oil and gas, aerospace and utilities industries. The AP 5181 provides the real-time wireless voice and data connection required to help workers involved in inspecting and servicing mission critical infrastructure improve productivity and reduce errors. A real time connection to plant machinery — such as sensors and metering devices that report temperature, humidity, pressure readouts and more — helps improve process control, optimizing operations and reducing costs. The ability to enable video in these challenges environments helps improve the safety of personnel and critical infrastructure. And the dual radio and mesh capabilities enable the creation of a point-to-point bridge as well as complex multi-node, multi-link networks — ideal for extending wireless voice and data services to remote power plants and more.
Mesh networking creates a flexible,
easily-managed network
Using its mesh capability, the dual-radio AP 5181 can connect to other access points for data backhaul while providing network access to local users. Enabling an array of applications, from simple point-to-point bridges connecting two wired networks to complex multi-node, multi-link networks, this feature offers a simple way to extend the network to outdoor or remote locations. The self-assembling and self-healing aspects of a mesh network make the network flexible and easy to manage. This, combined with the straightforward configuration interface, makes deploying and maintaining a secure wireless network of access points almost effortless.

Engineered to withstand the elements
Because the AP 5181 was specifically designed for outdoor use in harsh conditions, it can withstand wind, rain and extreme temperatures. It comes standard with integrated lightning arrestors and surge protection. The optional protective heavy weather mounting kit is designed to protect it from windblown debris at velocities of up to 130 mph, while the surge-protected power tap kit converts high voltage on light poles to low voltage to run the AP. In fact, Motorola offers everything required for a full outdoor AP solution, including a host of outdoor dual-band antennas and outstanding support.
Adaptive Switch Assisted Mesh
The AP 5181 supports an adaptive mesh mode of operation where the mesh AP’s can be centrally configured from the wireless switch. Local bridging of mesh traffic allows the mesh network to remain fully operational even if connectivity to the wireless switch is lost.
Backed by world-class service
Motorola covers every aspect of the mobility solution — from network design to ongoing operations — providing unsurpassed breadth and depth of 2coverage to ensure all of your services and support needs are met. Professional planning, assessment and implementation services ensure that your mobility solution is designed to deliver maximum benefits. And our responsive Customer Services ensure that your solution continues to operate seamlessly and efficiently, and with maximum uptime — reducing your total cost of ownership
and improving your return on investment.

Wireless IPS Sensor
The AP 5181 integrates AirDefense sensor firmware allowing customers to deploy AP 5181’s with one radio configured for WLAN coverage and the second radio configured as an AirDefense sensor for 24x7 compliance monitoring, rogue detection and termination, and troubleshooting. Dedicating a radio for AirDefense sensor functionality gives the highest level of security as compared to other IPS solutions that share the same radio for WLAN coverage and IPS on a time sliced basis. The integrated AirDefense sensor also eliminates the need for dedicated sensor hardware and associated cabling thereby reducing the overall deployment cost.
