SecureMesh® WAN Connector
SecureMesh® WAN Connector
The SecureMesh® Connector is the Smart Distribution end node element of the
SecureMesh Wide Area Network (WAN), a low-latency, high-bandwidth radio
system operating in the 5 GHz band as a self-forming, self-balancing, and selfhealing wireless mesh network. Using Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) to
allocate capacity and control access to the network, latency through the
SecureMesh WAN is <10 milliseconds per hop within the mesh network. The
SecureMesh WAN also provides Layer 2 Ethernet transport at air data rates up to
54 Mbps and throughput up to 20 Mbps, transmitting raw Ethernet frames to
support higher layer protocols, including TCP/IP and a wide range of utility-related
application layer protocols such as DNP 3.0, IEC 61850, SCADA-over-IP, and
Each SecureMesh Connector acts as an endpoint of the SecureMesh WAN and
provides a 10/100Base-T Ethernet port for SecureMesh WAN client devices in
direct support of Distribution Automation (DA), substation monitoring, video
surveillance, or work-force management applications. The SecureMesh WAN
supports bidirectional communications between its client devices and the head
end, allowing either end to initiate communications, or it can be configured to
support peer-to-peer communications without routing traffic through the head end
at all.
Reliable Mesh with built in Redundancy
As an element of the SecureMesh WAN, each SecureMesh Connector must be
within radio range of a SecureMesh Extender, Extender Bridge, or Gateway to
establish connectivity with the head end.
Mesh networking through the
SecureMesh WAN then extends coverage beyond each node’s range, avoiding
buildings, terrain, and other obstacles in order to deploy WAN connectivity exactly
where it is needed. Route diversity provided by the mesh serves as a failover
mechanism if a WAN node fails or a link’s quality degrades.
Easy-To-Deploy Broadband Connectivity
The SecureMesh Connector has been designed to be quickly and simply
deployed – with simple to use installation tools that help installers point its
integrated panel antenna toward nearby SecureMesh WAN relay nodes or
Gateways. The Connector’s auto-discovery and auto-provisioning features then
ensure proper installation and minimize deployment and ongoing operational

Secure Application Domain Partitioning
Using IPsec-based VPNs (Virtual Private Networks) or IEEE 802.1Q VLANs
(Virtual Local Area Networks) as well as traffic filters and Access Control Lists,
application domain partitioning within the SecureMesh WAN provides each
application group with its own virtual network to prevent unintentional or malicious
access from other application domains.
QoS (per application or per client)
With application domain partitioning, each application’s communications can be
isolated, allowing inter-application access to be blocked or controlled so that
access to a particular application does not provide access to devices of other
applications (and so that a compromise of a particular application’s devices does
not compromise devices of other applications). Moreover, each application
domain partition can use its own security mechanisms, and Quality of Service, as
enforced by rate shaping and traffic prioritization, can be applied per partition.
