The GNS-1449-1WN is customized for owners who are looking to add Wi-Fi to their location, where speed, distance and reliability are equally important. This package can be the basis of your Wireless Hotspot if you plan to expand the Wireless Network in the future, either by extending the range, or by increasing the # of available clients connected to the network. External Signal LED's will assist with alignment and troubleshooting procedures. Maximum distance Access Point can be placed away from your router is 250ft. (Shielded cat5e is recommended). This 2.4 GHz WiFi hotspot package includes a 1 year warranty, which includes lifetime technical support.
The new 2.4GHz WiFi hotspot package includess a single 13dBi MIMO Antenna, and can ship pre-configured for "out of the box" installation. Please contact us for details. The included access point is weatherproof, enabling you to mount it outside underneath the 13 dBi antenna. The Access Point is powered via a 24V POE injector, which is included. We recommend using sheilded cat5e cables when connecting to this device. Pole mount hardware is also included for both the AP and Antennas. There is a surge protector included that will be positiioned inline between the 24V POE injector and outdoor access point. The Access Point has web based configuration, meaning that the IP address will allow you to manage the settings. SSID, Security type/phrase, power settings, and network settings can be changed using this IP address.
This 802.11B/G/N Wi-Fi Hotspot includes a high gain, 2.4GHz, 13dBi 2x2 MIMO omni directional antenna for maximum Wi-Fi range, pole mount hardware, 24V POE injector, and power supply. This Wi-Fi Hotspot will enable you to broadcast a Wi-Fi signal up to 1/4 mile, assuming clear, unobstructed line of sight to your end user. With the built in amplifier, maximum power of 800mW will help to reach extended areas, or applications which have more obstructions. It is recommended to mount the AP/Antenna combination at a minimum of 10ft. and maximum of 20ft. high. This will allow you to reach RV's, Campers, or boat slips that are 1250ft. away, with minimal obstruction. If you have a particular setup you would like to discuss, please contact us anytime.
Please Note: The omni directional antenna included in this package has dimensions of 55"x4". Because of the omni-directional nature of this antenna, it should not be mounted more than 15ft. above your target area. For example, in typical campground, or RV Park installations, this antenna should be mounted at a height of between 12-15ft. Higher than that, and you will overshoot your target area. Keep in mind, directly under the antenna has a dead spot. For a more directional Wi-Fi coverage area, use the GNS-1485, or GNS-1485-AC.
Connection to Network:
To connect the access point to your network a single Cat5 Ethernet cable is used. A 50ft. cable is included for this hotspot package. (If you need more cable, a maximum length of up to 200ft. can be used) The Cat5 Ethernet cable connects directly from the outdoor access point using a weatherproof grommet, to an indoor POE (Power-over-Ethernet) injector. The POE injector plugs into a standard AC outlet for power, and another Cat5 Ethernet cable connects from the POE injector to your network (Router/PC/Switch etc.)
This 2.4GHz WiFi Hotspot package includes multiple security options including WEP/WPA/WPA2. It also has ability to enable MAC address authentication so that only enabled devices have access to the wireless network. You can also hide the network SSID.
If you have any other questions, please contact our Pre-Sales/Technical Support Dept. at (516) 214-0321. Ask us about pre-configuration of these Access Points, so they work "out of the box" and ready to install on your local area network.
Note: Distance estimates are assuming Line-of-Sight is available for your application. If you have obstructions then please take a look at our pre-packaged NLOS (Non Line-of-Sight) Wireless Hotspots, or use a higher transmit power radio. For point to point wireless network setups greater then 100ft, line of sight is always recommended.
Maximum Range & Interference:
With clear, un-obstructed line of sight at your location a maximum range of 1250ft. can be achieved using this package. Typical results are between 500ft. and 1/4 mile using this type of 2.4GHz WiFi Hotspot package. Most campground, RV parks, and Marinas will see about a 800ft. range. To extend coverage beyond this distance, additional Access Points can be added, therefore extending the coverage area of your wireless network at your discretion. Generally, this is referred to as a "wireless repeater". If you plan to grow your Wireless Hotspot in the future, there is no need to replace the existing equipment, saving you time and money when it comes time to upgrade the WiFi network. Additional Access Points are recommend for areas larger then 2000ft in diameter. A typical wifi laptop card will get a range of about 300-700ft. from a high power access point. This antenna works great for start-up WISP's, large RV-Parks, Campgrounds, or Marinas.
Each access point has a 30dBm maximum output power. This is adequate for medium range applications, or larger campgrounds and marinas. Power can be scaled back for closer installations to avoid noise issues and to meet local regulatory requirements.
For applications that require transfer of very large files, video transmission, or large amounts VoIP (Voice over IP) traffic, it is recommended that you choose this 802.11N Wi-Fi Hotspot.
