Simplifying deployments with universal installation indoors and out, high performance and intuitive cloud management
PORTLAND, OR – January, 30, 2017 – Open Mesh, a cloud-based network solutions provider that makes it easy to build and manage networks across large sites and multiple locations, today announced the launch of the A Series access points. The A Series combines high performance 802.11ac WiFi with a flexible form factor for enterprise deployments anywhere. A second ethernet port and a USB port are included allowing for new, upcoming IoT use cases.
“The A Series is the next evolution of smarter, simpler WiFi from Open Mesh,” said Ryan Detwiller, Open Mesh’s General Manager. “With the A Series, we’ve taken our modular approach to WiFi one step further: not only can the A Series be deployed anywhere outside or in, it comes with a flexible installation kit that includes everything needed for every mounting option.”
Water and dust resistant, the A Series can be set on a desktop, mounted to an ethernet wall plate, installed on a wall or T-rail ceiling or fastened to an outdoor wall or pole. “By designing an enterprise-grade access point with versatile installation options, Open Mesh simplifies deployment planning and inventory management for MSPs and IT integrators,” says Detwiller.
A Series access points are mesh enabled and integrate seamlessly with current Open Mesh access points and switches to create self-healing wireless networks with seamless roaming. Like all Open Mesh access points, the A Series can be managed through CloudTrax, Open Mesh’s free, centralized cloud management tool that can be used with an unlimited number of access points and switches across a single site or thousands. Through the CloudTrax mobile app or full web portal, users can quickly deploy access points, view performance, monitor network health, control bandwidth, set scheduled maintenance windows, gain user insights and more.
The A Series includes Open Mesh’s Presence API to enable location-based services and analytics, a robust captive portal functionality, and the CloudTrax API for third-party integrations.
The A Series is available in two models:
The A40 has simultaneous 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz wireless radios with 2x2 MIMO 802.11ac and 4 internal antennas. $185 MSRP.
The A60 has simultaneous 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz wireless radios with 3x3 MIMO 802.11ac and 6 internal antennas. $225 MSRP.
The A Series is available at openmesh.com or through distributors worldwide today.
