Wall Plate design for mid-range performance wireless requirements with gigabit speeds
A popular recent release from Meru Networks is their innovative AP122 Wall Plate AP. This is a dual-radio 802.11a/b/g/n/ac WLAN access point with a 2-stream design and an in-room wall plate form factor. It can operate in the 2.4 GHz band for 802.11n support and the 5 GHz band for 802.11ac to deliver a data rate of 1.2 Gbps data for demanding business applications such as video and voice.
This was designed to be placed in any location flush to a wall surface. It is designed for in-room mid-range performance environments, such as:
- Dorm Rooms
- Hotel Rooms
- Hospital Rooms
The AP122 can be installed by normal service personnel using existing CAT5/6 cabling connected from a standard wall junction box.
For wired connectivity, it features two 10/100 BASE-T switch ports to support a range of in-room IP device and user connectivity options. Additionally, one of the wired ports can operate as an IEEE 802.3af-compliant PoE Out port, offering up to 13 watts of power and capable of powering devices such as IP telephones. This reduces costs in additional cabling, switch ports, and power sourcing equipment. An additional pass-through port allows connectivity for digital phones that require native access to an in-house PBX system, and a USB port offers options for future uses.
The AP122 is built to provide years of trouble-free operation and is backed by a limited lifetime warranty.
