LigoWave Heavy-Duty 2.4/5GHz Outdoor AP, NFT Blizzard 2ac-N
802.11b/g/n/ac, 2Ghz and 5Ghz, MIMO dual 2x2, 1x POE-in LAN 802.3 af/at, High Transmit Power radios - 29dBm, Supports Infinity Software Controller, 48V POE included
The LigoWave NFT Blizzard 2ac-N is an outdoor Wi-Fi access point with integrated 2.4/5GHz 2×2 MIMO radios, boasting output power of 29dBm. The Gigabit Ethernet port with 802.3af/at support allows users to power the device using PoE switches.
The NFT Blizzard 2ac-N is specifically designed for cost-efficient, yet professional outdoor hotspot scenarios, including campsites, hospitality, education, public Wi-Fi, and many more.
The IP67-rated enclosure, integrated surge protection, and professional mounting brackets ensure continuous operation even in the harshest of weather conditions.
The Infinity Controller is an intuitive product and network management platform for your NFT devices. It allows easy, simple, and fast network installation, configuration, and control, all of which can be performed using a web browser.
The Controller also facilitates network maintenance and expansion by automating these processes. The management platform can function as an integrated controller or as an external one (i.e. Infinity Cloud Controller), thus serving as an optimal solution for setting up and managing networks of any size.
Automated Device Onboarding
Automated device onboarding (ADO) is the process of automatically setting up Infinity access points that are introduced to the network. Not only does ADO eliminate the discrepancies caused by manual setup, but it also simplifies the deployment process and saves valuable time.
Automated device onboarding requires one-time configuration of the Cloud AP, after which the settings are automatically applied to all Infinity access points that are newly-connected to the network using a physical connection.
Flexible Network Scaling
The External Infinity Controller is designed with various types of networks in mind, whether they contain just a few access points or thousands of them.
Networks can be categorized into different logical groups (up to 4 layers) based on geographical location, service type, company branch, or other criteria. Each group can have different configurations assigned to them and access points can easily migrate between networks.
Furthermore, the External NFT Controller (installed on customer premises) supports multiple organizations simultaneously (many network owners).
Pay as You Grow
A cloud-based Infinity Controller account is free and supports a network of up to 10 Infinity wireless access points, but can be expanded as the business grows.
IP Session Logging
Infinity access points allow users to track and log enduser credentials (source/destination IPs and ports, MAC address, etc.) on the Internet, thus allowing a safer and transparent Internet service.
Predefined Scenarios for Your Applications
The Infinity Controller provides an array of features, collectively forming the optimal solution for multiple scenarios, e.g. a complete any-size office access point network, small café or shop hotspot, and an Easy Mesh application, which is popular among small hotels, schools, and hospitals.
Easy Mesh is LigoWave’s solution to wireless network coverage expansion and device configuration automation. This feature is designed for the NFT Series (as well as DLB devices utilizing NFT firmware) and is only available on the External Infinity Controller.
The Infinity Controller allows users to set up an Easy Mesh network in a plain and simple way: just have at least one LANconnected AP, create a new Easy Mesh network, assign devices to it, and you are good to go!
LigoWave access points have an integrated mobile device detection feature. This means that any device within range can be logged using the MAC address and date/time without any user interaction.
The data is exported in real time and can be used to improve the services of an enterprise or managed service provider by importing them into proprietary applications for analytics and insights. An API is available upon request.
