The NetWave industrially hardened wireless dual radio Ethernet transmission device is designed to be used with an external antenna and is used for redundant ring and drop and repeat topologies. Both radios can be configured through the embedded User Interface as a Client or as an Access Point. Radio 2 supports 5GHz operation and is connected to the 19dBi internal antenna. Radio 1 is user selectable for 5GHz or 2.4GHz and connects to an external antenna. The NW8 and NW8E support up to 145Mbps throughput using MIMO technology. The units can be powered by an IEEE 802.3af/at PoE compliant device or through a supplied power injection module with the second Ethernet port operational as an IEEE802.3at PoE power source. The NW8 is FCC certified for use in North America and the NW8E is ETSI, DFS and TPC certified for use in the European Union.
