Cabling for outdoor wireless access point


A wireless access point is a device that helps laptops and other devices that use wireless Ethernet connect to a network. An outdoor wireless access point is designed to work in all climates and has antennas that are powerful enough to distribute gigabit speeds over specific distances. Consumers in the market for an outdoor access point have many choices available to them. In order to simplify one's search, this list identifies the top six consumer-grade outdoor WAPs on the market in 2013.

Outdoor Wireless Access Points

An access point is a device that provides access to a network in an environment where it wouldn't otherwise be available. A wireless access point (WAP) does so wirelessly, and these devices are available in both indoor and outdoor configurations. Indoor access points are less rugged, as they're intended to provide wireless connectivity in homes and offices. Outdoor access points are made to handle harsher environments and attempt long-range...

What is an access point?

Access Point mode is used to convert a wired network to a wireless network. In simple words, if you have a Router which doesn't have the wireless capability, Access Point can be connected to it using an Ethernet cable and broadcast the wireless signal.

You can also use an access point to connect to your wired network to create more wireless nodes.

What is a wireless bridge?

Bridge Client Mode is used to convert a wireless network to a wired network. In simple words, if you have wireless signal in your house, using the Bridge the wireless signals can be received and given to any device using Ethernet Cable.

Example: You can use the Bridge for you TV which doesn't accept wireless connection

What is a wireless Universal Repeater?

This mode allows you to repeat the signal of an existing wireless network without having to connect to the network. It...

The Cisco ® Aironet ® 1520 Series mesh access points are designed to support a wide variety of applications. There are several access point models and optional accessories available to suit the requirements of a particular deployment. A fully operational system requires the following minimum items:

• Access point

• Power

• 2.4-GHz antennas

• 5 -GHz antenna(s)

• Mounting bracket

Additionally, you may need the following, depending on your particular deployment. Options for the 1520 Series include:

• Fiber module

• Cable modem

• Battery

Use this guide to identify which items you need for your deployment. Note that accessories are available as a configurable option and/or as a spare (an equal sign "=" at the end of the part number indicates that the part is a spare). You may need to remove any option you installed when returning your access point to Cisco. Consult your Cisco representative for...

Be sure to use a shielded Cat5e or Cat6 cable, as Ubiquiti clearly specifies the use of shielded cable and connectors for outside access points.

Conduit is not required if you use the correct type of cable. Ubiquiti would like to sell you ToughCable and connectors, but IMHO those are overpriced .vs. any other cable that meets the need (exterior and shielded) so my Ubiquiti outdoor APs are connected to another brand that I could get for considerably less cash. It can also be difficult to keep the cable bend radius reasonable if running in 1/2" conduit with sharp corners around the building corner. If you want to use conduit, make the corner with sweeps.

Depending on the building layout and wiring access, running the cable up near the roof (or on the soffit, if there's a soffit) is generally less obtrusive than in the middle of the wall. It's also, not at all incidentally, a drier, more protected location for the hole in the wall (or you can come out the soffit if you...

From the August, 2013 Issue of Cabling Installation & Maintenance Magazine

The revision of TSB-162 will take into account the possibility that next-generation wireless LAN data rates may exceed 7 Gbits/sec.

by Patrick McLaughlin

When the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA; finalized the specifications in Telecommunications Systems Bulletin TSB-162 Telecommunications Guidelines for Wireless Access Points, the year was 2005 and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE; had not yet finalized its 802.11n wireless local area network (LAN) specifications. Today 802.11n equipment is widely deployed in enterprise networks, and its multiple-input/multiple-output (MIMO) signaling scheme generates transmission speeds that can reach hundreds of Megabits per second.
