Proxim Wireless presents the ORINOCO Wi-Fi Mesh Series for metropolitan and enterprise applications

Product Profile

Powered by the ORiNOCO Mesh Creation Protocol, the dual-radio ORiNOCO Wi-Fi Mesh Access Points deliver data, voice and video over Wi-Fi to the edge of a network over a flexible, auto-forming, self-healing, near line of sight mesh backbone. The dual-radio architecture separates the mesh backbone traffic from the edge access traffic, increasing capacity compared to single-radio mesh architectures. The ORiNOCO Wi-Fi Mesh Series consists of an indoor form factor (AP-4000 and AP-4000M) and a ruggedized, outdoor form factor (AP-4000MR and AP-4000MR-LR). Seamless integration between ORiNOCO indoor and outdoor mesh access points enable existing outdoor Wi-Fi mesh networks to extend indoors. 

  • ORiNOCO Mesh Creation Protocol (OMCP) enables mesh backhaul and Wi-Fi coverage on oneradio, while the second radio is used exclusively for Wi-Fi coverage
  • Industry-leading throughput with 802.11b/g and 802.11a simultaneous operation
  • Robust RADIUS accounting and authorization interface enables detailed subscriber usage tracking
  • WMM/802.11e draft Quality of Service (QoS) support on access and enhanced QoS on meshbackhaul for triple play applications
  • Wi-Fi certified to interoperate with any Wi-Fi certified client access product

Proactive Security Measures to Protect Your Network

ORiNOCO access points support the latest security standards, including IEEE 802.11i and AES encryption, and add proactive security measures to prevent attacks.

  • Intra-cell blocking and traffic redirection to prevent subscriber-to-subscriber attacks
  • Broadcast bandwidth throttling prevents broadcast attacks
  • IEEE 802.1x mutual authentication with dynamic per-user, per-session rotating keys
  • Rogue access point detection and notification
  • Secure management interfaces: SNMPv3, SSL and SSH
  • Encrypted storage for security and management parameters eliminates unauthorized accessSelf-Forming/Self-

 Healing Mesh Reduces Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)

Ease of deployment and integration with the wired network are critical factors in a
successful, profitable wireless network rollout. ORiNOCO mesh access points excel with key capabilities that simplify metropolitan and enterprise deployments.

  • Self-forming and self-healing ORiNOCO Mesh Creation Protocol automatically routes traffic through the best path as mesh access points are added or removed from the network
  • Tools to speed installation and optimization: automatic channel selection, adjustable transmit power, external antenna connectors 
  • Ethernet redundancy sustains network connection: automatically configures mesh portals to mesh access points when mesh portals lose Ethernet link eliminating cost of installing a redundant switch
  • Remote management via SNMP, HTTP and Telnet
  • Additional mesh link statistics improve mesh network monitoring
  • Low power consumption reduces operating expenses

Reliable by Design

With over 25 years of experience in the design and manufacture of wireless LANs, Proxim Wireless understands that service providers and enterprises require the same uptime and reliability in a wireless network as in a wired network. ORiNOCO mesh access points offer:

  • Robust features for metropolitan Wi-Fi and enterprise applications
  • Automatic reconfiguration of security policy in the event of power loss
  • Power-over-Ethernet support
  • AC Power option for outdoor light pole installations
