Hawking Technology's HOD45B puts
multiple solutions into one weather proof outdoor unit. This highly efficient
access point is the best choice for data
intensive, range extensive network
users. It allows computers and network devices to gain wireless access in
several modes throughout their network. It features a Power over Ethernet
connection and includes wall and pole mounting kits for easy installation and
With built-in dual band 2.4GHz and
5GHz radios, this access point supports the IEEE 802.11b/g/n and IEEE 802.11a/n
wireless network standards simultaneously. All computers and wireless-enabled
network devices (including PDA, cellular phone, game console, etc.) can connect
to this wireless
access point without additional
cabling. 802.11N wireless capability also gives you the highest wireless
speeds. With a compatible wireless card installed
in your PC, you can transfer files at
up to 750Mbps (combined 2.4GHz and 5GHz transfer data rate)!
2.4GHz is the most commonly used
wireless bandwidth. It also has a very narrow range of channels, usually
between 1-11. Common household devices
such as microwaves and cordless phones
also use the 2.4GHz bandwidth, and can cause interference with your wireless
network. As a result of its heavy
usage and narrow range of channels,
the speed and range of typical WiFi devices can be negatively affected.
5GHz solves this problem by providing
a faster, less congested, bandwidth with a wider range of available channels.
The HOD45B is designed with multiple
operating modes: Range Extender (Repeater), Access Point, Bridge,
Point-to-Point, Point-to-Multiple Points, and
WDS Bridge. In Range Extender
(Repeater) mode, the HOD45B repeats wireless signals from any access point or
router with a 2.4GHz 802.11b/g/n
network. In access point mode, the
HOD45B converts a wired network to a wireless network. While in bridge mode,
the HOD45B consolidates all your
wired devices and connects them to
your wireless network. Please see the last page for other operation modes.
