CN 1004-50


The CN-AP1004-50 802.11n Outdoor Wireless Access Point is the basic building block of a wireless LAN infrastructure. It provides connectivity between Ethernet wired networks and radio-equipped wireless notebook systems, desktop systems, print servers, and other devices.

The Cranberry CN-AP1004-50 is a high performance, dual-band 802.11n access-point for the Small and Medium Business (SMB) segment. It supports 802.11n connectivity for applications demanding high bandwidth and QoS, such as voice and video over Wi-Fi and concurrent operation in the 5 GHz frequency bands for maximum performance and application flexibility.

The CN-AP1004 is extremely simple to set up and can be managed via an intuitive Web-based GUI, CLI, or SNMP. The access point supports IEEE 802.3af Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) and external DC power for flexible placement options.

CN-AP1004-50 provides robust, business-class security features including WPA/WPA2, 802.1x with RADIUS, MAC address control, and rogue AP detection. It also supports multiple operational modes including AP, bridge, and simultaneous AP/bridge modes. With its capability to operate in different modes, the CN-AP1004-50 can provide wireless access to an entire small office or can be added to an existing SMB network as a cost-effective way to expand wireless coverage.

Multiple Operating Modes

Wireless Access Point

Point-to-Point Bridge

Point-to-Multi-Point Bridge

The Wireless Access Point operates in the 5 GHz frequency band

Operates as a standard 802.11 a/n access point.

In this mode, the CN-AP1004-50 only communicates with another bridge-mode wireless access point (with or without clients). Network authentication should be used to protect this communication.

Select this mode only if the CN-AP1004-50 is the "Master" for a group of bridge-mode wireless access points. The other bridge-mode wireless access points send all traffic to the "Master" , and do not communicate directly with each other. Network Authentication should be used to protect this traffic.

Standards Compliance Access Point complies with the IEEE 802.11 a/n standards for Wireless LANs.
Full WPA and WPA2 Support WPA and WPA2 enterprise-class strong security with RADIUS and certificate authentication as well as dynamic encryption key generation. WPA-PSK and WPA2-PSK pre shared key authentication without the overhead of RADIUS servers but with all of the strong security of WPA.
Upgradeable Firmware Firmware is stored in a flash memory and can be upgraded easily, using only your Web browser/CLI/SNMP.
Rogue AP Detection The Rogue AP detection feature shows a list of unknown APs to the administrator.
Access Control The Access Control MAC address filtering feature can ensure that only trusted wireless stations can use the CN-AP1004 to gain access to LAN network.
Hidden Mode The SSID is not broadcast, assuring only clients configured with the correct SSID can connect.
Secure Telnet Command Line Interface The secure Telnet command line interface enables easy scripting of configuration of multiple CN-AP1004-50 s across an extensive network via the Ethernet interface.
Configuration Backup Configuration settings can be backed up to a file and restored.
Autosensing Ethernet Connection Connects to 10/100 Mbps IEEE 802.3 Ethernet networks
LED Indicators Power/Test, LAN speed, LAN activity, and wireless activity are easily identified.
Wireless Multimedia (WMM) Support

Supports WMM QoS (Wireless Multimedia prioritization)

Supports WMM Power Save

Multiple BSSIDs Supports 8 Multiple BSSID. Each BSSID is mapped to a VLAN. When an Access Point is connected to a wired network and a set of wireless stations, it is called a Basic Service Set (BSS). The Basic Service Set Identifier (BSSID) is a unique identifier attached to the header of packets sent over a WLAN that differentiates one WLAN from another when a mobile device tries to connect to the network.
DHCL Server and Client Support DHCP provides a dynamic IP address to PCs and other devices upon request. The CN-AP1004-50 can act as a client and obtain information from DHCP server; it can also act as a DHCP server and provide network information for wireless clients.
SNMP Support Support for Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) Management Information Base (MIB) management. Supports MIB I, MIB II, 802.11 MIB and Proprietary Configuration MIB.
802.1Q VLAN (Virtual LAN) Support A network of computers that behave as if they are connected to the same network even though they actually may be physically located on different segments of a LAN.
VLANs are configured through software rather than hardware, which makes them extremely flexible. VLANs are very useful for user/host management, bandwidth allocation and resource optimization.
