● 19-30 VDC power supply
The Cisco® Aironet® 1552S Outdoor Access Point is the latest model
in the Cisco Aironet 1550 Series. The 1552S merges the ruggedized
outdoor 802.11n access point with an integrated, ISA100-compliant
backbone router to provide a seamless solution for wireless sensor
networks. The ISA100.11a radio has been designated specifically for
mission-critical wireless connectivity to industrial sensor equipment.
With an ISA100.11a radio integrated in an 802.11n-based access
mobility while also providing mission-critical connectivity for industrial
sensing and monitoring equipment, such as gauges for water
treatment plants, sensors for chemical plants, and vibration
monitoring solutions for oil rigs.
This allows customers to combine business use cases, such as:
●
Monitoring a chemical treatment plant while providing onsite security via wireless video surveillance
●
Monitoring the equipment and gauges on an oil rig while an onsite worker downloads schematics,
blueprints, or work instructions to a handheld Wi-Fi tablet
●
Providing real-time information to an onsite engineer about changes to processes and equipment so that
abnormalities can be dealt with immediately
The Cisco Aironet 1552S Access Point is also Class 1, Div 2/Zone 2 hazardous location certified. This means it is
designed specifically for hazardous environments like oil and gas refineries, chemical plants, mining pits, and
manufacturing facilities. The 1552S offers a single-box solution rather than requiring two separate wireless
networks―one for 802.11n and one for ISA100 sensor networks.
By eliminating the extra power and network connections, which can be expensive to deploy in hazardous locations,
the 1552S saves costs by reducing deployment times while offering a flexible, secure, and scalable mesh network

for high-performance wireless coverage for both Wi-Fi clients and ISA100.11a field instruments across large
facilities. With all these benefits, the Cisco Aironet 1552S Outdoor Access Point can improve overall plant
reliability, safety, and profitability.
The Cisco Aironet 1552S Outdoor Access Point supports multiple-device and multiple network application delivery
methods, such as real-time seamless mobility, video surveillance, 3rd Generation (3G) and 4G data offload, and
public and private Wi-Fi access. Designed to meet customer needs in a broad range of industries, the Cisco
Aironet 1552S Outdoor Access Point offers the following additional benefits:
●
Flexible deployment options: Access or mesh network, extension of an Ethernet network, and Ethernet,
fiber, or wireless backhaul.
●
Cisco CleanAir® technology: Integrated spectrum intelligence to detect, classify, and mitigate RF
interference from unauthorized wireless bridges or malicious devices.
●
High-bandwidth video surveillance: Video surveillance over Wi-Fi without the high cost of installing
cables over long distances.
●
High-performance, multipurpose network: Provides low CapEx and OpEx.
●
Integrated wired and wireless: The Cisco Borderless Network Architecture provides cost savings with
end-to-end network access solutions that include wireless, switching, routing, and security.
Flexible, High-Performance Mesh
The Cisco Aironet 1552S Outdoor Access Point offers a flexible, secure, and scalable mesh platform that is part of
the Cisco Unified Wireless Network. It offers high-performance mobility across large oil and gas facilities, chemical
plants, manufacturing yards, and mining pits. The 1552S provides high-performance device access through
improved radio sensitivity and range with 802.11a/b/g/n multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) technology including
two spatial streams. Multiple uplink and power options are available. The 802.3af-compliant, Power-over-Ethernet
(PoE) interface makes it easy to connect IP devices, such as IP video cameras. The housing is certified for
Class 1, Div 2/Zone 2 deployment areas and provides a robust system that can withstand demanding, hazardous
environments.
Cisco CleanAir Technology
As part of the Cisco Aironet 1550 Series with Cisco CleanAir technology, the 1552S provides the highestperformance 802.11n connectivity for mission-critical outdoor networks by detecting interference from unauthorized
devices, as well as common outdoor interference sources such as WiMAX networks and wireless bridging
products. The 1550 Series uses chip-level intelligence to create a spectrum-aware, self-healing, and self-optimizing
wireless network that mitigates the impact of wireless interference. Cisco CleanAir technology is a systemwide
feature of the Cisco Unified Wireless Network that improves wireless network quality by detecting RF interference
that other systems can’t recognize, identifying the source, locating it, and then making automatic adjustments to
optimize wireless coverage.

RF Excellence
Building on the Cisco Aironet heritage of RF excellence, the Cisco Aironet 1550 Series delivers industry-leading
performance for secure and reliable wireless connections. Industrial-grade parts, enterprise-class silicon-level
intelligence, and optimized radios deliver a robust mobility experience. The Cisco Aironet 1550 Series provides a
set of tools that deliver the robust, scalable wireless foundation required to realize the true potential of outdoor
wireless mobility:
●
Cisco ClientLink technology to raise the downlink performance to 802.11a/g clients, providing improved
coverage and throughput to existing clients
●
Radio resource management (RRM) for automated channel selection and power setting management of
access points
●
Advanced capabilities to select data rates, adjust power, and manage quality of service (QoS) for access
points
Centrally Managed Mesh Network
Central management and troubleshooting of the Cisco outdoor wireless access points prevent costly maintenance
service calls to outdoor locations. The Cisco Prime Network Control System (NCS) works in conjunction with the
Cisco Aironet Access Points and Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers to configure and manage the wireless networks.
With Cisco Prime NCS, network administrators have a single solution for RF prediction, policy provisioning,
network optimization, troubleshooting, security monitoring, and wireless LAN systems management. Cisco
CleanAir technology is integrated into Cisco Prime NCS to provide real-time information on your outdoor network.
Wireless network security is also a part of a unified wired and wireless solution. Cisco wireless network security
offers the highest level of network security, which helps ensure that data remains private and secure and that the
network is protected from unauthorized access.
802.11n Outdoor Access Point
The Cisco Aironet 1552S Outdoor Access Point contains a dual-radio system with radios that are compliant with
IEEE 802.11a/n (5-GHz) and 802.11b/g/n (2.4-GHz) standards. The 1552S has three external antenna connections
for three dual-band antennas. It has Ethernet and fiber Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) backhaul options. This
access point also has a PoE-out port and can power a video surveillance camera. A highly flexible model, the
Cisco Aironet 1552S is designed for hazardous environments like oil and gas refineries, chemical plants, mining
pits, and manufacturing factories. The Cisco Aironet 1552S Outdoor Access Point is Class 1, Div 2/Zone 2
hazardous location certified.
ISA100-compliant Backbone Router
The Cisco Aironet 1552S Outdoor Access Point houses an ISA100.11a-compliant backbone router (BBR) that
provides backhaul transport of the wireless sensor network traffic. The dual-radio BBR is based on the IEEE
802.15.4 standard and communicates to all ISA100.11a-compliant wireless field sensor devices. The BBR can also
receive secure configuration codes via a windowed, infrared (IR) receiver.
