Wireless AP: startup
Installing the Wireless APs
The 802.11g standard applies to wireless LANs and specifies a transmission rate of 54
Mbps. The 802.11b (High Rate) standard is an extension to 802.11 that specifies a
transmission rate of 11 Mbps. Because 802.11g uses the same communication frequency
range as 802.11b (2.4 GHz), 802.11g devices can co-exist with 802.11b devices on the
same network
Either radio on the Wireless AP can be enabled or disabled in the user interface. Both radios
can be enabled and offer service simultaneously.
The Wireless AP supports the full range of 802.11a:
5.15 to 5.25 GHz
U-NII Low Band
5.25 to 5.35 GHz
U-NII Middle Band
5.725 to 5.825 GHz
U-NII High Band
New 5.470 GHz to 5.725 GHz Band
(when approved by FCC)
The U-NII bands (Unlicensed National Information Infrastructure) are three frequency bands of
100 MHz each in the 5 GHz band designated for short-range, high-speed wireless networking
Wireless APs are licensed to operate in North America, the European Union countries and
European Union free trade countries. The Wireless AP will operate on the radio band allowed
for each European Union country, after being configured on the HiPath Wireless Controller in
the Wireless AP Configuration: Properties screen.
The Wireless AP has two models:
internal antenna (Model AP2610), internal dual (multimode) diversity antennas
external antenna (Model AP2620) (dual external antennas), RP-SMA connectors
For North America, the U-NII Low Band (5.15 to 5.25 GHz band) is disabled for the Model
AP2620 to comply with FCC regulations.
Installing the Wireless APs
Install the Wireless APs as described in the AP Install Guide packed with the units.
Unpack the Wireless AP from its shipment carton. Check that all parts are present, using
the AP Install Guide packed with the unit.
Mount the Wireless AP wall bracket, using 3 screws, near the LAN ethernet cable plug
coming from the wall.
