ARUBA AP92 & AP93 ACCESS POINT
The multifunction AP-92 and AP-93 are entry-level indoor 802.11n access points (APs) designed for low-density deployments in offices, hospitals, schools and retail stores.
These compact, high-speed APs deliver wire-like performance at data rates up to 300 Mbps. The AP-92 features a single 2×2 MIMO dual-band 2.4-GHz/5-GHz radio with external antennas while the AP-93 features the same radio with internal antennas. Both APs are built to provide years of trouble-free operation and are backed by a limited lifetime warranty.
Working with Aruba’s line of centralized Mobility Controllers, the AP-92 and AP-93 deliver secure, high-speed network services that move users to a “wireless where possible, wired where necessary” network access model. The network can then be rightsized by eliminating unused Ethernet switch ports and thereby reducing operating costs.
802.11n enables the use of wireless as a primary connection with speed and reliability comparable to a wired LAN. It also increases performance by utilizing techniques such as channel bonding, block acknowledgement and MIMO radios. Advanced antenna technology also increases range and reliability.
The key to ensuring wire-like performance and reliability is Aruba’s unique Adaptive Radio Management and spectrum analysis* capabilities, which manage the 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz radio bands to deliver maximum client performance while mitigating any RF interference.
The multifunction AP-92 and AP-93 can be configured through the Mobility Controller to provide WLAN access with part-time air monitoring, dedicated air monitoring for wireless IPS and spectrum analysis, Remote AP (RAP) functionality or secure enterprise mesh. The AP-92 and AP-93 each feature a 10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet interface and can operate from standard 802.3af power-over-Ethernet (PoE) sources or a 12-volt DC power supply.
Access Points (AP)
Access Point (AP) are ceiling mounted and has very nice profile. There will be cabling works of running typical telephone cables, which are CAT 5/6 connecting the Access Point back to the Streamyx lines.
Fig. 2 below shows the typical pictures of such AP installations:
The Access Point (AP) are small and looks like a smoke detector. Normally the AP is white in colour. These AP’s are very similar to the kind used at home. However, these AP’s are normally industrial grade and with better security protection. While it is a WiFi device, such AP’s will not work like the home AP’s.
Cost to Building Management or Premise Owner
We are please to inform that there is 100% no system and installation cost to the BM or Premise Owner. Telekom Malaysia will pay for all the costs related to the installation of the system. On a regular basis, Telekom Malaysia will also be sending a team of technicians to physically check the system to ensure that the AP’s are all in good working condition.
Assistant from Building Management or Premise Owner
To install the system at no-charge to BM and Premise Owner, we are hopeful for certain assistant:
- Provision of Electricity
Each AP consumes a very minimum amount of electricity equivalent to RM3.00 per month.
- Provision of Cabling
Each AP will require us to run some cabling from the telephony port or telecom riser. Normally these works are carried out above the plaster ceiling.
- Access to Telekom Malaysia equipment
As the internet connectivity will be via Telekom’s telephony system, we hope for assistant in the access to TM’s MIDF room.
