The IWF 5320 is a dual radio Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n outdoor device for long range wireless transmission. Its rugged IP68-rated metal housing is weatherproof, watertight and rust-resistant, making it an ideal solution for deployments in harsh conditions, such as outdoor or industrial environments. When in AP mode, the IWF 5320 operates as an AP station with wall-penetrating high-power signal and long-range coverage to better serve Wi-Fi clients. In addition, it can be set up as a WDS-mesh node by establishing multiple WDS links to bridge neighbor access points together. Coming with business-class security, the IWF 5320 in AP mode is also ideal for industrial applications. Furthermore, one IWF 5320 with multiple SSIDs is capable of acting as multiple Virtual APs (VAPs). By tagging the traffic from each VAP with a unique VLAN ID, it allows for segmenting a corporate network using VLANs to protect critical resources. Being a versatile Wi-Fi device, the IWF 5320 does not limit itself to outdoor usage only. When managed by a Nexcom Controller (such as the IWF 8405), it performs as a Wi-Fi base station in either a public or private wireless access deployment.
