Flexible and Reliable Outdoor Characteristics

With the standard IEEE 802.3af/at Power over Ethernet (PoE) design, the WBS-502N can be easily installed in the areas where power outlets are not available. The WBS-502N is definitely suitable for wireless IP surveillance, and bridge link of building to building and backbone of public service. Additionally, the self-healing capability keeps connection alive all the time. With the IP55-rated outdoor enclosure, the WBS-502N can perform normally under rigorous weather conditions, meaning it can be installed in any harsh, outdoor environments.

Designed for Various Requirements

The WBS-502N is specially designed for long-distance outdoor surveillance and wireless backhaul solutions that are capable of establishing stable bridge connection through the embedded 15dBi unidirectional antenna. To provide maximum performance, the WBS-502N can implement up to 8 operation modes where a multitude of applications in communities, warehouses, campuses, harbors, etc. can be made.

3 Simple Steps to Set Up WDS

Without needing to enter the Web interface for configuration, the WBS-502N needs three simple steps to establish the WDS PtP connection without any difficulty. By just clicking the Pair button on the WBS-502N and within 2 minutes, you can connect two WBS-502N without complicated configuration.

Multiple SSIDs with VLAN Tagging

As for security, the WBS-502N supports WPA/WPA2, and the 802.1X RADIUS authentication to secure the wireless connection. Besides, the supported IEEE 802.1Q VLAN allows multiple VLAN tags to be mapped to multiple SSIDs to distinguish the wireless access. This makes it possible for the WBS-502N to work with managed Ethernet switches to have VLANs assigned to a different access level and authority.  

Optimized Efficiency in AP Management 

The brand-new GUI configuration wizard helps the system administrator easily set up the WBS-502N step by step. Besides, the built-in Wi-Fi analyzer provides real-time channel utilization to prevent channel overlapping to assure greater performance. With the automatic transmission power mechanism, distance control and scheduling reboot setting, the WBS-502N is easier for the administrator to deploy and manage without on-site maintenance. Moreover, you can simply use PLANET AP controller and SAPC (Smart AP Control) to deliver wireless profiles to multiple APs simultaneously, thus making the central management simple.

Cost-effective 5GHz Wireless Backhaul Solution

PLANET WBS-502N is specially designed for long-distance outdoor surveillance and wireless backhaul solutions that are capable of providing farther connection through the built-in 15dBi dual-polarity antenna. With multiple operation modes and adjustable Tx power, it is easy to install and adjust the suitable setting in appropriate locations. In the aspect of management, the Traffic Shaping and IEEE 802.1Q VLAN supported allows it to limit and set priority for different traffic purposes. Furthermore, the self-healing capability keeps connection alive all the time, thus reducing the maintenance effort and deployment cost.
