WA512GM-D

The WA512GM-D is the first industrial router in the world to adopt the latest MESH WiFi technology for the growing demands of the industrial WiFi network. The MESH WiFi features Self Organizing Network that automatically selects and links different wireless networking devices together by the mesh topology. The WA512GM-D significantly improves network coverage in different corners in a large warehouse with AGV or automated factory with advanced security. Equipped with a high-performance quad-core ARM processor, it can serve dual channels 5GHz IEEE 802.11ac Wave 2 and 2.4G 802.11n WLAN radio at the same time and reaches up to 866M+300Mbps high throughput. Advanced cybersecurity features such as OpenVPN, IPSec, L2TP and GRE tunnel are supported with high throughput. The industrial designs such as slim din-rail mounting, extended -40~70C operation temperature, and PoE power input integrate easily into IoT applications.

•CAP-  Central AP with WAN connection
•RE- Range Extender connected to CAP directly or indirectly
•Single SSID for all CAP/RE for easy/fast roaming
•1 CAP extends up to 7 Range extenders or up to 4 layers for minimum performance

•Optional Directional Long-Range antenna for long distance up to 10KM

                         
       

Self-Configuring by ViewMaster Utility

  • Simple configuration with 3 steps

      1. Select a CAP (Central AP)
      2. Auto-discovery RE (Range Extender)
      3. Group Mesh setting

 
•    Group Mesh SSID and WPA PSK setting
•    Mesh status (signal, channel, uplink) *
                                

 

Self-Organized Mesh Network

1.Band Steering: Auto-select the best-performing band and path.
2.Concurrent 2.4G+5GHz: AP offers concurrent services of 2.4GHz and 5GHz Bands for different clients with default omni antennas
 


3. AP Steering: the wireless devices are always connected in the best AP via 802.11v Wireless network management
4. Multiple Backhaul Links: Failsafe and load-balancing backhaul links
