HotPoint 5000 Wireless Access Point – A modular access solution for large scale, indoor
and outdoor wireless mesh networks; full network integration while permitting independent
physical placement provides optimal accessibility for Wi-Fi clients.
Seamless Outdoor and
Indoor Operation
Outdoor HotPoint 5200 access points
have rugged NEMA 4X/IP66-rated cast
aluminum enclosures and have one
weatherproof connector for attaching to a
Firetide wireless mesh node or a
conventional Ethernet port. These units
support high gain antennas and can
receive power directly from a connected
mesh node eliminating the need for an
external power supply.
Indoor HotPoint 5100 access points provide
wireless access within buildings and moving
vehicles. Each indoor access point has a
UL2043 plenum-rated enclosure and an
RJ-45 connector for attaching to a Firetide
wireless mesh node or a conventional
Ethernet port.
Dual Radio Support
HotPoint 5000 series features two
independently operating radios. Radio 1 is
capable of operating in 802.11 b/g/n mode and
Radio 2 is capable of operating in 802.11 a/n. In
addition, Radio 2 also supports client
connectivity in the 4.9 GHz based public
safety band. The radios can operate in channel
widths of 5, 10, 20 and 40 MHz (MIMO only),
with 5 and 10 MHz channel widths only
available on the 4.9 GHz band.
Access On or Off the Mesh
HotPoint wireless access points can be
mounted to a Firetide mesh node to
provide Wi-Fi access to any indoor or
outdoor location without the need for
backhaul cabling. HotPoint access points
can also connect directly to
a conventional wired infrastructure
eliminating the need to install a mesh node in
locations where wired connectivity is
readily available.
Modularity for Flexible Placement
Unlike conventional mesh networks that
combine mesh backhaul and Wi-Fi access in
the same enclosure, Firetide mesh nodes
and access points can be physically separated
allowing system integrators to optimize RF
separately for both the mesh backhaul as well
as client access.
For example, in a multi-building mesh
network, mesh nodes should be placed in
areas that enable the best connectivity
between buildings which is typically at
higher locations. However the best
locations for the access points tend to be
lower to provide the best connectivity for
Wi-Fi clients inside
a building. Because the access points and
mesh nodes are kept in separate
enclosures, they can be independently
positioned for optimal RF connectivity.
Single-point Network Management for
Mesh and Access
Whether connected directly to a Firetide
wireless mesh network or to a wired
infrastructure, the HotPoint access points
are fully integrated and managed with the
same HotView software used to manage
Firetide mesh nodes. HotView provides
remote management from
a centralized location and users can
manage all mesh and access traffic from a
single console.
Designed for Hot Spots
Layered service levels can be enabled
through Virtual APs (VAPs) and Virtual
AP Groups. Each HotPoint AP supports
up to 16 VAPs with support for a total of
128 clients, creating different logical
networks with varying levels of security,
access, and performance. Additional Hot
Spot features include user-based rate
limiting and intracell blocking.
