WISP Point-to-Point Backbone Link

 
 

Challenge
Aiming to establish network accessibility through various terrains
where physical network is not available, WISPs (Wireless
Internet Service Providers) deploy a point-to-point wireless network
with high power wireless devices and face following engineering
considerations:

n   ‧Transmitting distance

   ‧Working in harsh environment

   ‧Capability of data protection

   ‧Minimize installation cost

   ‧Expandable network

 

Micronet Solution Case



 

 

Micronet Benefits

 Long Range Wireless Transmission

   ‧SP9012N provides 26Bm output power, it supports up to 20km connection with SP920PA2-24 antenna connected.

   ‧SP9012N is designed with Atheros chipset and supports highly stable wireless transmission.

 Durability under Harsh Environment

   ‧SP9012N  is designed with robust case with IP65 protection level.

 Advanced Security Function

   ‧Support 64/128-bit WEP, WPA, WPA2 encryption methods and ACL (Access Control List).

   ‧Support IEEE 802.1x authentication for each network access attempt, passing the request to RADIUS server to verify. RADIUS server will determine

       the request is granted or denied.

 Cost Effective

   ‧Comparing with fiber and cable installation, SP9012Npoint-to-point solution is cost-effective and can be easily applied in different environments

       without physical limitation. It saves not only the cost of hardware equipments, but also the installation cost.

 Scalability to expand to multiple sites

   ‧Supporting both AP/Bridge and AP/Client modes, SP9012N is a sufficient solution for WISP backbone.

   ‧When all the SP9012N in field are set as AP/Bridge mode, wireless network can be expanded up to 6 WDS links.

n AP/Bridge and AP-Client modes for sophisticated application

   ‧The SP9012N supports AP/Bridge and AP-Client operating modes.

   ‧AP/Bridge mode provides both Access Point and Static LAN-to-LAN Bridging functionality. The static LAN-to-LAN bridging function is supported

       through Wireless Distribution System (WDS).

   ‧To establish a static bridge link based on WDS, the AP/bridges at both end of the WDS link must be manually configured with each other's

       MAC addresses, both devices are configured with the same SSID and WEP settings.

   ‧AP-Client mode is for Dynamic LAN-to-LAN Bridging. The AP-Client scans all APs with matched SSID, and establishes a bridge link with them

       (from any vendors).

 

 AP/Bridge and AP-Client modes for sophisticated application

   ‧Under AP/Bridge mode, two or more LAN segments can be connected wirelessly by WDS links. As illustrated in the below diagram, a pair of

       wireless LAN-to-LAN bridges is used to connect two LAN segments, and can be expanded up to 6 WDS links.

  

 SNMP remote management

   ‧Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is an UDP-based network protocol. It is used mostly in network management systems to monitor

       network-attached devices for conditions that warrant administrative attention. SNMP protocol consists of a set of standards for network management,

       including an application layer protocol, a database schema, and a set of data objects.

   ‧SP9012N supports SNMP (V1/V2) protocol for convenient remote management. SNMP functionality can be disabled, then users shall specify the

       name (used as a password) of the read-only and read-write community. In addition, up to 5 SNMP trap targets can be set in the SNMP Trap Table.

  

  

Weather-proof and vandal-proof, mounting kit, and PoE LAN port for easy installation

   ‧Supporting IP65 protection class, SP9012N can be placed outdoors or in harsh environment.

   ‧Users can easily install SP9012N on the post with a bundled mounting kit. The PoE LAN port design helps users to adapt to network port and

       power source with feasibility.
