Ultra-high-speed Wi-Fi-6 Wireless LAN Solution with Environmentally Hardened Design
PLANET IAP-1800AX Industrial Dual Band 802.11ax 1800Mbps Wireless Access Point with 5 10/100/1000T LAN Ports is equipped with a rugged IP30 metal case for stable operation in heavy industrial environments. Thus, the IAP-1800AX, supporting MU-MIMO, OFDMA, Seamless Roaming, Beamforming and BSS Coloring technology, also provides a maximum wireless speed of 1200Mbps in the 5GHz band and 600Mbps in the 2.4GHz band. The maximum number of client users is up to 150, ensuring more secure and robust connectivity with the adoption of Wi-Fi 6 technology.
As the IAP-1800AX is able to operate under wide temperature range from -40 to 75 degrees C, it can be placed in almost any difficult environment. The IAP-1800AX also allows either DIN rail or wall mounting for efficient use of cabinet space.
Super Power Dual Band WLAN Solution
The IAP-1800AX, adopting the IEEE 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6 standard, provides a high-speed transmission. The maximum wireless speed in 2.4GHz band is up to 11AXG_GHE40 of 574Mbps, and in the 5GHz band is up to 11AXA_AHE80 of 1201Mbps. Both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless connections can also be used simultaneously.
Benefits of MU-MIMO, OFDMA, Seamless Roaming, Beamforming and BSS Coloring
The IAP-1800AX can be installed in public areas such as hotspots, airports and conferences as OFDMA, a multi-user version of OFDM, enables the concurrent AP to communicate (uplink and downlink) with multiple clients by assigning subsets of subcarriers called resource units (RUs) to the individual clients. With MU-MIMO and Seamless Roaming technologies, it provides a better Wi-Fi user experience, reducing the likelihood of users turning off Wi-Fi and putting more load on the cellular network. Beamforming is to improve your Wi-Fi signal when you are far away from your router. The BSS color is a numerical identifier of the BSS. 802.11ax radios are able to differentiate between BSSs using BSS color identifier when other radios transmit on the same channel.
These technologies also can solve Wi-Fi congestion issues in open work spaces and conference rooms. The IAP-1800AX can offer more powerful throughput coverage of up to 150 client users.
WPA3 Next Generation Security for Your WLAN Solution
The WPA3 is the next generation Wi-Fi security technology that provides the most advanced security protocol to the market. WPA3 makes your connection more secure by preventing hackers from easily cracking your password no matter how simplified the password is. WPA3 can also provide more reliable password-based authentication, so it can better protect the security of individual users.
Advanced Security and Rigorous Authentication
The IAP-1800AX supports WPA/WPA2/WPA3 wireless encryptions, suitable for the WPA2 Enterprise and WPA/WPA2 Enterprise, where eavesdropping and unauthorized users or bandwidth occupied by unauthenticated wireless access can be effectively prevented. Furthermore, granting or denying access to the wireless LAN network based on the ACL (Access Control List) to any users can be pre-established by the administrator.
Multiple Operation Modes for Various Applications
The unit supports the simplified usage modes of AP and Gateway, through which they provide more flexibility for users when wireless network is established. Compared with general wireless access points, the IAP-1800AX offers more powerful and flexible capability for wireless clients.
Optimized Efficiency in AP Management
The brand-new GUI configuration wizard helps the system administrator easily set up the IAP-1800AX step by step. Besides, the built-in Wi-Fi analyzer provides real-time channel utilization to prevent channel overlapping to assure greater performance. With the automatic transmission power mechanism, distance control and scheduling reboot setting, the IAP-1800AX is easy for the administrator to deploy and manage without on-site maintenance. Moreover, you can use PLANET NMS-500 or NMS-1000V AP control function to deliver wireless profiles to multiple APs simultaneously, thus making the central management simple.
Cybersecurity Network Solution to Minimize Security Risks
The IAP-1800AX supports TLSv1.3 protocols to provide strong protection against advanced threats. It includes a cybersecurity feature such as SNMPv3 authentication, and so on to complement it as a security solution.
Friendly and Secure Management
For efficient management, the IAP-1800AX is equipped with Web and SNMP management interfaces.
Moreover, the IAP-1800AX offers secure remote management by supporting TLSv1.3 protocols and SNMP v3 connections which encrypt the packet content at each session.
Dual Power Input for High Availability Network System
The IAP-1800AX features a strong dual power input system with wide-ranging voltages (9V~54V DC) incorporated into customer’s automation network to enhance system reliability and uptime. In the example below, when power supply 1 fails to work, the hardware failover function will be activated automatically to keep powering the IAP-1800AX via power supply 2 alternatively without any loss of operation.
Effective Alarm Alert for Better Protection
The IAP-1800AX supports a Fault Alarm feature which can alert the users when there is something wrong with the device. With this ideal feature, the users would not have to waste time finding where the issue is. It will help to save time and human resource.
Digital Input and Digital Output for External Alarm
The IAP-1800AX supports Digital Input and Digital Output on its upper panel. This external alarm enables users to use Digital Input to detect and log external device status (such as door intrusion detector), and send event alarm to the administrators. The Digital Output could be used to alarm the administrators if the IAP-1800AX port shows link down, link up or power failure.
Flexible and Easy Installation with Limited Space
The compact-sized IAP-1800AX is specially designed to be installed in a narrow environment, such as a wall enclosure. It can be installed by fixed wall mounting or DIN rail, thereby making its usability more flexible and easier in any space-limited location.
Extreme High Speed and Wi-Fi 6 Technology Make Wireless Transmission More Powerful
The IAP-1800AX delivers the dual band and more bandwidth to avoid signal interference and ensure the best Wi-Fi performance. It allows you to check e-mails and surf the Internet via the 2.4GHz band and simultaneously watch full high-definition (HD) video or any other multimedia application via one 5GHz band. Besides, many client users can be connected to Wi-Fi at the same time. The maximum number of client users is up to 150. Moreover, the Gigabit Ethernet port of the IAP-1800AX offers ultra-fast wired connections that utilize the maximum wireless bandwidth; therefore, users will experience a fast wireless speed of over 750Mbps. With the outstanding stability of high-speed wireless transmission, the IAP-1800AX can provide users with excellent experience in multimedia streaming with your mobile devices anywhere, anytime.
Seamless Roaming and Better Coverage
Moving between a traditional Wi-Fi AP or router and range extender, your Wi-Fi signal can experience lag or a dropped connection. With Seamless Roaming and intuitive technology, moving to different area is never an issue now that your devices are switched to the strongest Wi-Fi signal automatically.
The IAP-1800AX features advanced 2T2R MU-MIMO technology which reduces the effect of dead spot, so that it can get better coverage of the existing wireless network. Furthermore, the repeater mode supported by the IAP-1800AX helps to minimize the effort of installation, thus reducing cabling cost.
