Rugged AP/Bridge
High Power Wi-Fi with Tamper and Weather Resistant Case
ValuePoint Networks 802.11b/g compliant SuperAP 550g is designed for
distributed Wi-Fi deployment in hotels, apartment buildings, outdoor, or
industrial applications. It is an extremely powerful Rugged Access Point,
with up to 500 mWatt transmit output and industry standard Power over
Ethernet. Ideal for indoor or outdoor applications where industrial hardened
equipment is required, we use a NEMA style enclosure, lockable to the wall or
ceiling, UL2043 rated for use in plenums, and vibration certified for high
vibration environments like vehicular mounting. The SuperAP 550g can act as
an Access Point, Bridge repeater, AP Client, or combination Access Point and
Bridge repeater. Pricing for the 550g is more cost effective than ever before,
dramatically lowering your infrastructure costs, and increasing your Return on
Hardware Features
The SuperAP 550g comes with an industry standard N-bulkhead connector so
you can use a wide assortment of the best antennas available.
backbone Ethernet cable connects to the AP through a moisture-proof gland
and the entire unit is sealed with a heavy-duty gasket. Thus the unit is
entirely sealed from the harshest elements and is suitable for indoor or
outdoor applications. In addition, the 550g has a special vibration certification
for high vibration environments.
The 550g supports Power over Ethernet.
It uses external replaceable
antennas as well as Transmit Power control, enabling it to be used in a wide
variety of special applications where the wireless output needs to be controlled
for the environment. Special high-gain, omni-directional, directional, or Yagi
antennas can be attached to the unit using standard N-type cabling.
User Authentication
Secure authentication based on industry standards
The 550g incorporates 802.1x/Radius–based authentication features that
interoperate with a back-office Radius server to provide authentication of each

user. 802.1x-based authentication means a 550g is compatible with a wide
variety of shared usage and public access applications.
In addition, the AP can authenticate users based on their MAC address if
Security and Management
Highly secure and manageable
In addition to Radius-based and MAC-based authentication in the Advanced
Version, the 550g supports the 64-bit and 128-bit Wireless Encryption
Protocol, WPA/WPA2, and disabling of SSIDs.
The 550g is easy for administrators to setup through Web-based management,
or our Windows-based network manager. Additionally, management can be
done via SNMP V 1, V 2, 802.1x and 802.1d MIBs. It is UPnP-enabled and
supports remote firmware upgrades.
The 550g keeps tracks of all clients connected and their signal strengths. For
preventative maintenance, the 550g can be set to re-boot automatically at
regular off peak intervals.
Extended Network Range
Repeater functionality
The 550g is able to operate as a repeater in addition to an access point,
allowing it to communicate with other compatible AP/routers to form a
Wireless Distribution System. This greatly extends the reach of the wireless
network. Using directional antenna and the unit’s powerful 500 mW radio, a
range of up to 15 miles is possible. Aligning directional antennas is easy using
built-in antenna alignment assistance. Up to six WDS links can be established
from a single unit.
AP client mode
Operators can extend the network even further by configuring the SuperAP
550g as a client device, compatible with any 802.11b/g compliant Access
Point. AP client mode includes RSSI for link and antenna position monitoring
as well as built-in site survey capability.

The 550g is fully compatible with the Wi-Fi standard, ensures the usability with
any Wi-Fi compatible wireless equipped device. Wi-Fi is the fastest growing
standard for Internet access and is supported on a vast number of PCs today.
