• Gigabit Ethernet connectivity to the wired network
• Greater and more reliable coverage
Easy Deployment and Operation
• Flexible mounting options with built-in ceiling and wall mounting brackets
• Fully compliant with existing 802.3af Power over Ethernet
(PoE) infrastructure
• Centralized management and upgrades
Enterprise-Grade Wireless Services
• Supports WMM/UAPSD and Call Admission Control
• Location services
• Fast secure mobility
• Smart RF offers superior reliability for wireless coverage
Comprehensive Security
• IEEE 802.11i compliant security suite
• Multi-band sensor mode for rogue device detection
• Tamper-proof housing
The Altitude 4600 series versatility can support a wide variety of
wireless needs—including video streaming, high speed data,
location and voice services.
Altitude 4610 and 4620 are concurrent dual-radio
Access Points (APs) with unlocked bands. This
provides the flexibility to assign one of the radios as a
sensor to scan all the channels on both bands. The
bands are unlocked on each radio. The APs are
managed by the Summit® WM3000 series contollers.
Altitude 4610/4620 delivers full 802.11n performance
and reliability.
The Altitude 4610/4620 series APs provide flexible mounting options with built-in mounting bracket for
wall or ceiling mount. Altitude 4610 comes with
integrated omni-directional antennas. Altitude 4620
comes with six (6) detachable omni-directional
antennas. Altitude 4620 is plenum rated and thus can
be installed out-of-sight above the ceiling.
Altitude 4610/4620 APs deliver an easy-to-use, secure
and high-performance wireless solution that is ideal
for demanding enterprises. With the versatility to
simultaneously support a wide variety of wireless
needs—including video streaming, high speed data,
location and voice services. Altitude 4610/4620
dramatically simplifies the installation and operation
of enterprise wireless networks.

Superior Wireless Performance
Altitude 4600 series APs deliver a six-fold
increase in throughput over existing
802.11a/b/g legacy LANs. The 2x3 MIMO
with dual spatial streams, along with
Orthogonal Frequency-Division
Multiplexing (OFDM) modulation, enables
the AP to deliver full 802.11n performance.
An Altitude 4600 AP and an 802.11n client
can bond two adjacent 20 MHz channels to
create a single 40 MHz wide channel. This
potentially doubles the throughput from a
standard 20 MHz channel. Gigabit Ethernet
connectivity to the wired network enables
full speed access to the wired network.
The powerful 24 dBm radio increases
coverage, performance and obstruction
penetration versus lower dBm radios. In
addition, receiver sensitivity has been
increased proportionally so users have an
increased ability to maintain high-
performance access through thick doors
and walls to users even while on-the-move.
The Altitude 4600 series APs 2x3 MIMO
design ensures premium transmit and
receive communications.
Ease of Deployment
and Operation
Altitude 4600 series APs offer a superior
return on investment when considering the
total costs of upfront capital expenditure,
network upgrades, installation, and
operation. Flexible mounting options with
built-in mounting brackets for wall or
ceiling mount are available. The APs
conform to the 802.3af PoE standard while
delivering the full 802.11n performance.
This preserves the investment in existing
PoE infrastructure and eliminates the need
to power each AP separately.
Altitude 4600 series APs require no
configuration or manual firmware maintenance. The Summit WM3000 series
controller discovers the access points on
the network and automatically downloads
all configuration parameters and firmware,
greatly reducing installation, maintenance
and troubleshooting costs for Layer 2 and
Layer 3 deployments.

Locationing services over 802.11 networks provide the ability to locate and
track people or assets, and even to
control access to the network or applications. In addition, it is easy to provide
hotspot and guest access and assure the
user can only access authorized networks,
sites or applications.

Wireless Services
data. The APs participate in wireless client
authentication using 802.11i standardsbased WPA or WPA2 mechanisms. The APs
also participate in its own authentication
with the wired switch port using 802.1X.
They can support several security profiles
based on application. On-board hardware
accelerated encryption engine supports
WEP, TKIP and AES standards. Unique
security profiles can be configured on a per
SSID basis.
The Altitude 4600 series APs support
over-the-air QoS protocol based on
802.11e/WMM specifications. The APs
also support standards-based (802.11e)
Unscheduled Automatic Power Save
Delivery (UAPSD/WMM Power Save) that
extends the battery life of hand-held
client devices like VoWLAN handsets. It
enables fast secure roaming using several
mechanisms including pre-authentication,
opportunistic key caching, and WPA2
based PMK caching.
The Altitude 4600 series APs provide low
latency support for the industry-leading
VoWLAN devices. The APs support
over-the-air QoS protocols such as
SpectraLink Voice Priority (SVP) and
802.11e based WMM specifications.
Priorities can be set according to SSID,
allowing critical real-time voice traffic to
be assigned to a distinct high-priority
queue. Interoperability with wired
network traffic prioritization ensures
end-to-end QoS as the traffic traverses
the network.
Common problems such as building
attenuation, electronic interference or
sub-optimal access point placement are
minimized as the SMART RF feature
automatically optimizes power and
channel selection so that each user gets
always-on high-quality access and mobility.
Comprehensive Security
Altitude 4600 series APs offer a high level
of security features for wired and wireless
connectivity. The APs supports standards-based, over-the-air encryption
schemes to protect the integrity of user
