Calabasas, Calif. According to its supplier, the Access/One Network outdoor wireless system (OWS) is the highest capacity multi-radio, multi-channel, and multi-RF mesh solution deployed today. Unlike competing mesh products that use either single or dual radios, Strix System's OWS supports up to six radios per node, providing dedicated high-speed wireless bandwidth for backhaul ingress and egress, and client connectivity. Using the OWS, city governments, municipalities, enterprises, and multi-dwelling units can now offer high-performance wireless access that supports the most demanding applications, including voice and video.
The Access/One Network OWS can maintain support for real-time applications with only one termination point per 50 nodes. The result is less physical wiring of nodes, which reduces the cost of deployment and increases the scalability of the system. Using any mix of 802.11 a, b, or g radios, the OWS supports link rates of up to 108 Mbits/s between nodes. By operating at both the 2.4- and 5-GHz spectrums, it separates client access from the mesh backbone, enabling the system to dynamically optimize data paths, circumnavigate network congestion and interference, and adjust in real-time to avoid network failure.
The bundled network management tool lets IT managers manage the entire mesh network from one location using a browser-based interface while also allowing the network administrators to use carrier-class SNMP tools. It also offers the ability to monitor, diagnose, and reconfigure any system node from one location. The Access/One Network OWS 2400 and 3600 are available in two NEMA 4X-rated environmentally-hardened enclosures. Both models support a range of external antennas and are field upgradeable.
