Azurecomm AZ2400-WiFi Wireless CATV Extension

High Performance Low Cost DOCSIS Solution
The Azurecomm AZ2400-WiFi Wireless Cable Extension was developed to enable cable system operators to leverage the latest wireless technology to extend the reach of their existing DOCSIS services and to increase service offerings within their current infrastructure. This solution allows CATV operators to offer commercial broadband IP data service to customers at unwired premises utilizing standard Wi-Fi CPE equipment. The Azurecomm AZ2400-WiFi provides cable operators a low-cost alternative for delivering service to businesses looking for access to a high-speed network without a cable drop. The product is designed for ease and speed of deployment, and takes advantage of existing and future 802.11 wireless technologies.

The AZ2400-WiFi is also the perfect product for MSOs to enter the lucrative hotspot market. The radio can be configured as a DHCP server and provides several methods of security. Multiple SSIDs, MAC filtering and encryption can help secure the network.

Configuration flexibility
The Azurecomm AZ2400-WiFi wireless cable extension offers flexible configuration options for adaptation to meet the needs and expectations of different environments. As a point-to-multipoint system, the Azurecomm AZ2400-WiFi is an exceptionally efficient and affordable small business or corporate application. As a point-to-point backhaul or bridging application, it is a powerful dedicated data link for enterprise environments of all kinds.

Wi-Fi “Hot Spot” support includes WPA and WPA2 with Radius and Redirection.

Ease of deployment and configuration
The Azurecomm AZ2400-WiFi is a self contained unit with internal DOCSIS cable modem, 10/100 Ethernet interface, wireless access point, high gain antenna, and 60-90 VAC CATV power supply housed in a integrated weatherproof enclosure. Operating power is supplied from the CATV plant through a power passing tap or through the Ethernet connection. Roughly the size and shape of an HFC node, the AZ2400-WiFi mounts on the strand with familiar CATV mounting hardware. Pipe mounting hardware is also available for rooftop or tower installations. For applications where only Ethernet upstream access is required, the AZ2400-WiFi is available without the CATV power supply and DOCSIS modem.

The AZ2400-WiFi is optionally available with PoE out to power external devices. 24 VDC is available with current capability of 1000 mA.

Standards compliant
The Azurecomm AZ2400-WiFi was built from the ground up to utilize industry standard 802.11 radios approved by government regulatory agencies for use in unlicensed frequencies.

Security
Security is critical when delivering service via wireless. The Azurecomm AZ2400-WiFi supports the principal access and security protocols on the DOCSIS network side (BPI+). The air interface provides WEP (40, 80, 152-bit), TKIP and AES encryption as well as Shared Key and 802.1X Authentication.

Management Features
The AZ2400-WiFi supports SNMP and web browser access from the cable plant as well as a local “craft” access through the waterproof 10/100 Mbps Ethernet port. An Azurecomm proprietary SNMP V3 MIB provides access to the overall system. Azurecomm AZ2400-WiFi  Wireless CATV Extension.
