The Cisco Aironet 1552S Outdoor Access Point is an industrial access point and an integral part of the Honeywell OneWireless™ Network. End users benefit from a flexible, secure and scalable mesh network that provides high-performance wireless coverage for Wi-Fi clients, ISA100 Wireless™ (IEC 62734) and WirelessHART (IEC 62591) field instruments. The Cisco® Aironet® 1552S Access Point addresses the growing need for wireless mobility while also providing mission-critical connectivity for industrial sensing and monitoring equipment across large industrial facilities.
What Is It?
The Cisco Aironet Access Point combines the rugged outdoor 802.11n access point with an integrated ISA100 Wireless and WirelessHART Multiprotocol radio to provide a seamless solution for Wi-Fi clients such as tablet PCs, ISA100 Wireless and WirelessHART field instruments such as wireless temperature transmitters and Ethernet devices. It has three dual-band radios that are compliant with IEEE 802.11a/n (5-GHz) and 802.11b/g/n (2.4-GHz) standards. It also has Ethernet and fiber as well as small form-factor pluggable (SFP) backhaul options. Finally, the access point houses an ISA100 Wireless and WirelessHART Multiprotocol radio that provides backhaul transport for the wireless sensor network traffic. The 1552S offers a single-box solution and does not require two separate wireless networks―one for 802.11n and another for wireless sensor networks. By eliminating the extra power and network connections, which can be expensive to deploy in hazardous locations, the 1552S provides cost savings and reduces deployment time.
