WA212BP is a high performance, 802.11n compliant, IP55 waterproof outdoor wireless AP/ Router with wireless coverage reaching up to 2km. It equips with highly sensitive, high power, and high gain 2T2R MIMO antennas that bring data rate up to 300Mbps. The dual Ethernet ports support NAT Routing and firewall/VPN connectivity. One Ethernet port receives PoE power input, and the other Ethernet port delivers PoE power output. A web-based GUI provides easy and secure management, as well as the firmware upgrade. The mini USB port can be used to add cellular dongles. WA212BP is an ideal entry-level high-speed long-range wireless communication solution for outdoor applications.

Point to Point and Point to Multiple Points

WA212BP supports AP, Client, and WDS modes. Users can configure one as AP mode, and the other as client mode for point to point connection. It is an easy way to extend the wireless range.

If the user has multiple sites and would like to send traffic to the central point via wireless, the central point can be set as AP mode, and the rest points to be set as Client mode. To enhance the distance of the point to multiple points, the central AP can be WoMaster WA512 with the high gain and Omni-antenna while the WA212BP acts as the client with the directional antenna. 

Long-Range Wireless Connectivity without bandwidth lost

The WA212BP equips with two Ethernet ports for the  Bridge or Router modes. While the two ports work as the Bridge mode, the traffic between the ports switch fast without bandwidth lost. Users can expand wireless coverage within one stand and reach high bandwidth wireless backhaul. While the WAN port is configured, it can support Secure Remote Access through WAN and the Cloud IIoT management.

  • Secured Remote Access by VPN
WA212BP can act as a VPN server for data encryption and dynamic remote access. Multiple VPN protocols are supported such as OpenVPN, GRE, and L2TP.  The channels between multiple networks, ex. private/public/hybrid networks are fully secured and with authentication features.

MQTT relies on the TCP transport protocol. By default, TCP connections do not use encrypted communication. To encrypt the whole MQTT communication, ThingsMaster and other MQTT brokers allow the use of TLS instead of plain TCP. In the mission-critical industrial application, encryption is mandatory and highly suggested for industrial communication.

The MQTTS is standardized at IANA as “secure-mqtt”. All WoMaster Routers and Switches support the latest TLSv1.2 encryption and X.509 authentication.
  • ThingsMaster OTA (device management over the air) 
The OTA agent embedded in WR222 upgrades device management over the air, anywhere you are, and any time you want over your mobile devices.  ThingsMaster OTA is a secured local OTA software that can be installed in private or public service or even QNAP NAS (network-attached storage). With OTA, all device information such as location, warning event can be shown in real-time.  The maintenance such as configuration reload or device reboot can also be run by the group.
