With the SMHAP DOCSIS® Wi-Fi® access points (APs) by Lindsay Broadband, wireless plant extensions and hotspot services are just one truck roll away. A quick and easy connection at any power passing tap or coupler opens new revenue streams.
The SMHAP unit is a standards-compliant access point with an integrated DOCSIS® cable modem for backhaul. Single and dual high-power 350 mW radios with 802.11ac 2×2 MIMO technology support TCP throughputs up to 100 Mbit full duplex.
The SMHAP unit can be used in both bridged and routed configurations. Hotspot, point-to-point, point-to-multipoint and mesh applications can all be implemented on this extremely flexible device. All variants of the SMHAP unit are available as Mikrotik, RouterOS installed. This powerful, networking platform supports advanced routing protocols, such as OSFP and MPLS/VPLS. VLANs can be tunneled using L2TP of SSTP, with BCP support. Per connection queuing, along with 7 firewall and bridge filters, enforces equal access for all subscribers according to their service class, and allows traffic shaping at the edge.
The SMHAP unit can be managed via SNMP, HHTP, CLI (SSH or Telnet) and an easy-to-use Windows®-based utility. Remote firmware updates are supported. User management can be done with a standard radius server, or third-party, user-management service. For smaller deployments, the UserManager package is included. Many vendors of DOCSIS® provisioning software have modules to support user management for the SMHAP unit as well.
