Introduction

RuggedAir1000 is an "all-in-one" (multifunction product: access point, client, repeater, router & Mesh*) designed for industrial applications in harsh environment : railway, industry 4.0…
> Public transportation: It can be used on the ground to create a WiFi coverage at the depot or on board to connect vehicles to the ground network (trams, subways), for car-to-car communication and as an access point for passengers.
> Industry 4.0: it allows high-speed data transmission indoors and outdoors thanks to its extended WiFi coverage and/or from a connected mobile device.

  • High performances: high-speed 802.11ac, 1.3 Gbps (radio data rate), MIMO 3T3R...
  • Robustness: waterproof, IP66, with M12 connectors, 24 VDC or PoE power supply and 3 antennas to improve throughputs and enhance the quality of the radio link.
  • Mobility: its roaming performances (<30 ms) and shock/vibration resistance (EN61373) make it easy to integrate into trams, subways, trains, various machines, bridge cranes...
  • Ease of deployment: RuggedAir1000 can be easily administered from WaveManager and WaveViewer. Embedded, it can be configured directly from the onboard computer via SNMP or a web browser. It also has a C-Key (save / restore configuration key) for instantaneous replacement on site.

It integrates advanced security standards (WPA2-Enterprise (Radius), DoS, Firewall ...) as well as routing and filtering functions to facilitate mass deployments.
