Cranberry Cardinal Series Wireless Access Point
The CN-AP1003 Single Band 802.11n Wireless Access Point is the basic
building block of a wireless LAN infrastructure. It provides connectivity
between Ethernet wired networks and radio-equipped wireless notebook
systems, desktop systems, print servers, and other devices.
The CN-AP1003 provides wireless connectivity to multiple wireless network
CN-AP1003 single band high performance
802.11n wireless access point for the SMB
The Wireless Access Point supports 802.11n
connectivity for applications demanding high
bandwidth and quality of service, such as
voice and video over Wi-Fi.
CN-AP1003 supports internal antenna and a
provision to connect external antenna
CN-AP1003 supports maximum of 128 clients
devices within a fixed range or area of coverage.
The CN-AP1003 Single Band 802.11n Wireless Access Point acts as a bridge
between the wired LAN and wireless clients. Connecting multiple CN-AP1003
Wireless Access Points via a wired Ethernet backbone can further lengthen the
wireless network coverage. As a mobile computing device moves out of the
range of one access point, it moves into the range of another. As a result, wireless clients can freely roam from one Access Point to another and still maintain
seamless connection to the network.
The CN-AP1003 is extremely simple to set up and can be managed via an
intuitive Web-based GUI, CLI, or SNMP. The access point supports IEEE
802.3af Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) and external DC power for flexible and
placement options.

Key Features and Standards
2.4 GHz Band Operating Frequency
Multiple Operating Modes:

• The Wireless Access Point operates in the 2.4 GHz frequency band.
Wireless Access Point
• Operates as a standard 802.11b/g/n access point.
Point-to-Point Bridge
• In this mode, the CN-AP1003 only communicates with another bridge-mode wireless access
point (with or without clients). Network authentication should be used to protect this communication.
Point-to-Multi-Point Bridge
• Select this mode only if the CN-AP1003 is the “Master” for a group of bridge-mode wireless
access points. The other bridge-mode wireless access points send all traffic to the “Master”,
and do not communicate directly with each other. Network Authentication should be used to
protect this traffic.
Standards Compliance
• Access Point complies with the IEEE 802.11b/g/n standards for Wireless LANs.
Full WPA and WPA2 Support
• WPA and WPA2 enterprise-class strong security with RADIUS and certificate authentication as
well as dynamic encryption key generation. WPA-PSK and WPA2-PSK pre shared key authentication without the overhead of RADIUS servers but with all of the strong security of WPA.
Upgradeable Firmware
• Firmware is stored in a flash memory and can be upgraded easily, using only your
Web browser/CLI/SNMP.
Rogue AP Detection
• The Rogue AP detection feature shows a list of unknown APs to the administrator.
Access Control
• The Access Control MAC address filtering feature can ensure that only trusted wireless
stations can use the CN-AP1001 to gain access to LAN network.
Hidden Mode
• The SSID is not broadcast, assuring only clients configured with the correct SSID can connect.
Secure Telnet Command Line Interface
• The secure Telnet command line interface enables easy scripting of configuration of multiple
CN-AP1001s across an extensive network via the Ethernet interface.
Configuration Backup
• Configuration settings can be backed up to a file and restored.
Autosensing Ethernet Connection
• Connects to 10/100/1000 Mbps IEEE 802.3 Ethernet networks.
LED Indicators
• Power/Test, LAN speed, LAN activity, and wireless activity are easily identified.
Wireless Multimedia (WMM) Support
• Supports WMM QoS (Wireless Multimedia prioritization)
• Supports WMM Power Save
Multiple BSSIDs
• Supports 8 Multiple BSSID. Each BSSID is mapped to a VLAN. When a Access Point is
connected to a wired network and a set of wireless stations, it is called a Basic Service Set
(BSS). The Basic Service Set Identifier (BSSID) is a unique identifier attached to the header of
packets sent over a WLAN that differentiates one WLAN from another when a mobile device
tries to connect to the network.
DHCL Server and Client Support
• DHCP provides a dynamic IP address to PCs and other devices upon request. The CN-AP1001
can act as a client and obtain information from DHCP server; it can also act as a DHCP server
and provide network information for wireless clients.
SNMP Support
• Support for Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) Management Information Base
(MIB) management. Supports MIB I, MIB II, 802.11 MIB and Proprietary Configuration MIB.
802.1Q VLAN (Virtual LAN) Support
• A network of computers that behave as if they are connected to the same network even
though they actually may be physically located on different segments of a LAN.
• VLANs are configured through software rather than hardware, which makes them extremely
flexible. VLANs are very useful for user/host management, bandwidth allocation and resource
