Detailed Description

HD26252 (sb3417-R1-02)

airClient 241, 2.4GHz Indoor Residential
Customer Premise Equipment (CPE)

Product Overview
The airClient™ series is a Customer Edge solution, designed specifically for communication service providers to establish cost effective wireless infrastructure capable of delivering IP based data and voice services. The airClient series leverages smartBridges’ 3rd generation Carrier Wireless IP (CWiP™) technology platform based on state-of-the-art Near Line of Sight (NrLOS) COFDM wireless technology and advanced networking layer 2/3 capabilities. The airClient can be self-installed by the subscribers to eliminate the cost of the truck-roll. Easy deployment and centralized management features of the airClient series make it suitable for scalable and large network deployments.

The airClient series operates in the 2.3 to 2.5 GHz and 4.8 to 6.0 GHz Licensed and ISM bands with variable 5/10/20/40 MHz channel width. It supports both Point-to-Point (PtP) and Point-to-Multipoint (PtMP) wireless broadband applications. RF interference mitigation, resistance to multi-path delays, advanced networking and management features of airClient help realize affordable and reliable wireless subscriber installations. The airClient is available in different hardware form factors and the software features to meet wide variety of performance and cost requirements.

The airClient can deliver as much as 12 Mbps of TCP/IP data throughput. airClient can support range of up to 8 km in low band and up to 5 km in high band with integrated antenna. In Point-to-Multipoint (PtMP) mode, airClient can support up to 32 client devices. An external high gain antenna can be used to achieve longer range. The individual client Bandwidth Management, Voice and Data traffic prioritization ensures reliable delivery of data and voice over the radio access network.

Quality of Service (QoS) and bandwidth management for the wireless interface make the airClient the intelligent choice for neighborhood-wide ISP networks. The special hardware and software features significantly simplify how a subscriber can self-install the device and connect to the service provider’s network. When used with smartBridges suite of remote management solutions, service providers can realize significant cost savings on new subscriber provisions. Maintenance and after-sales support costs are also reduced.
  • COFDM Radio
    Best-in-class radio performance with COFDM technology ensure high throughput, spectral efficiency, resistance to multi-path delays and Near Line of Sight performance

  • Advanced Radio Performance
    High transmit radio power and ultra high receive sensitivity for LongRange™ coverage

  • Self-Install CPE with an Integrated Antenna
    Lower overall cost and fast installation

  • External Antenna Support
    Connector allows use of higher gain external antenna for longer range

  • Advance QoS Function
    Traffic prioritization queues for data and voice applications

  • Bandwidth Control at CPE
    Controls upstream/downstream bandwidth according to the Service Level Agreement (SLA)
  • Comprehensive Network Features
    Built-in NAT and Routing function to isolate service provider’s network from customer’s network
  • Unified Web and SNMP Compliant Remote Management Interface
    Permits remote control, configuration, maintenance and firmware upgrade of the CPE
  • Auto-Configuration System (ACS) and Device Management System (DMS)
    Service Providers can remotely provision and manage the CPE
State-of-the-Art Wireless COFDM Technology
The IEEE 802.11 is the most successful wireless technology of modern times. This tremendous success is rapidly driving the performance with many extensions to the standards. This means that more applications leverage the 802.11 technologies and increase the device manufacturing volumes. This positive spiral has helped 802.11 wireless technologies to achieve the best performance at the lowest possible cost. smartBridges has further enhanced this cost effective, state-of-the-art COFDM wireless technology to the Carrier grade robustness and apply it to the near line-of-sight, fixed wireless, outdoor requirements. As can be seen in the technology comparison chart, smartBridges’ Carrier Wireless IP (CWiP™) technology is the most efficient answer for delivering advanced IP services.

Feature Highlights

Intelligent Networking Features for Data and Voice Services
Quality of Service (QoS) for traffic prioritization, bandwidth management for the wireless interface make airClient 241 the intelligent choice for enterprise class customers. The ability to guarantee bandwidth to critical applications, limit bandwidth to low priority applications, and provide end-to-end QoS, ensures enhanced performance for data and voice traffic.

The airClient 241 includes Network Address Translation (NAT) and Router capabilities for isolating the service provider's network. When used with airPoint™ Nexus, the airClient 241 can support unlimited MACs as a fully transparent bridge for joining remote network segments.

Subscriber Provisioning and Management System
Field installation is time consuming and expensive; therefore, the airClient 241 is designed for rapid out-of-the-box installation. Service providers can now better manage and support the airClient 241 installed at the customer premise through the optional Auto-Configuration System (ACS) and Device Management System (DMS). Every time the CPE associates to the service provider’s network, the ACS automatically authenticates and configures the CPE with the correct bandwidth settings, device parameters, and firmware version. The DMS can be used by the service provider for post sales support, including getting remote access to the CPE for device troubleshooting and configuration.

LongRange™ Radio Performance that goes the Distance
airClient 241 features LongRange™ wireless design to deliver high data throughput and long operating range. smartBridges' superior design of the radio receiver enhances the sensitivity to an incredible -97 dBm level. The superior receiver and transmitter characteristics and parameter optimization for long range result in the wireless coverage. Better range translates directly into lower wireless infrastructure cost when covering a large area.

Power over Ethernet (PoE) Support
The airClient 241 is powered through the Ethernet cable by using the PoE injector that is supplied as a standard accessory. PoE support allows the airClient 241 to be installed away from the subscriber’s computer, and at a location which offers better signal strength from the Access Point.

Antenna Options
The airClient 241 comes standard with an integrated antenna, sufficient for most subscriber locations. For longer distances or for higher data speeds, an optional higher gain antenna can be attached to the CPE at the external antenna connector.
