(Security Technology Executive Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) APX-3000 Outdoor AP/Bridge The APX-3000 Outdoor AP/ Bridge from Aaxeon Technologies has all the standard features found on an access point but also offers much more. It features a Wireless Distributed System (WDS) function that let's the unit act as a wireless LAN access point and repeater at the same time.

Users can use this function to develop large wireless networks in large areas like airports, hotels, schools, etc. Using WDS enables bridging networks between multiple areas where it is impossible to deploy network cable connections. The APX-3000 also has Station Mode, which lets network devices that only have wired Ethernet support access wireless LAN without changing any of the device's original configurations. In addition, with its 1 watt radio, the APX-3000 can be used to bridge distances much greater than the typical access point with only a 100 mwatt radio.

Moreover, the APX-3000's metal enclosure is IP67 rated. Having an IP67 rated enclosure ensures that the unit will be protected from the elements day in and day out. It is rainproof and will protect against dust, ensuringe the unit is reliable for everyday use.

The APX-3000 is a great solution for users looking to install a reliable high-powered outdoor access point.
