IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n Industrial Wireless Outdoor Mesh AP
Industry type:Electronics and communication
Product model number:EKI-6340
Advantech Co., Ltd.
award 3

Advantech predict that the emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT) will bring big changes. As we are all moving towards a more connected world, Advantech integrated billions of devices into cloud-enabled networking seamlessly through advanced WLAN communication technologies. Advantech introduced the new EKI-6340 outdoor Mesh AP.

Self-healing and Self-forming
Intelligent Mesh capabilities with self-healing and route choosing algorithms (self-forming) follow the calculation of a number of hops and radio signal quality. Each wireless connection in a wireless mesh network will have a "path score" to represent the signal quality between nodes. The path score calculation includes: RSSI (Received Signal Strength Indication), noise level and bandwidth flow information to be the reference for calculation. The number of hops from source to destination is a minor consideration in a routing algorithm.
Multiple Hopping
Intelligent wireless Mesh systems have a throughput of higher than 150 Mbps at 2 hops and can still be 100 Mbps at as many as10 hops. Such high throughput rates ensure less concern about loss of video images which may cause security issues. Furthermore, the self-healing function saves the burden of maintenance and the cost of trouble shooting. Ideal for use in monitoring the status of remote oil fields since each derrick will have an EKI-6351 that transmits data to an EKI-6340 and from there to a control center.
Ultra-Fast Roaming for Mobile Connectivity
A Mesh solution consists of one Mesh Gateway (one way connected with Switch by Ethernet cable and one way connected with Mesh Node or Mesh AP via radio), some pieces of Mesh Nodes (one way connect with Mesh Gateway via radio and one way connect with Mesh AP via radio) and some pieces of Mesh APs (one way connect with Mesh Nodes via radio and one way connect with Mesh Stations or regular Wi-Fi clients via radio). The Mesh Nodes are dependent upon the throughput requirements.
