Strand-Mounted Optical Access Point (OSMHAP)

Powerful radios combined with an electrical-to-optical media converter make for efficient fiber backhaul, all in a hardened one-box solution.

The case for fiber backhaul is compelling. With throughput on 802.11n radios exceeding 100Mbps (full duplex), offloading traffic from your copper plant to your fiber network not only makes sense—it may be imperative.

The Lindsay optical strand-mounted, hardened access point (OSMHAP) integrates standards-compliant radios with E-O media converters in a single Lindsay tough platform that is ideal for serving business customers who were previously out of reach of the typical CATV footprint.

The Optical SMHAP installs quickly where fiber access and HFC plant power are available.
