SkyWire - Motorola AP 5181 Outdoor Access Point

Supplier: SkyWire

Rugged enterprise-class access point designed for harsh environments. Motorola’s AP-5181 Access Point, specifically designed for outdoor use, delivers enterprise-class wireless networking in harsh environments. In addition to a NEMA 4X housing, severe-weather features include integrated lightning arrestors, surge protectors, extreme temperature range operation and an array of antenna and power accessories.


  • Extend the reach of your corporate network — cost-effectively
    When used as either an access port or a mesh node, the AP-5181 can operate wirelessly, even in harsh conditions. Outdoor applications don’t mean sacrificing security or manageability — support for today’s standards- based security protocols helps ensure enterprise-level network protection, while a wide variety of administration options provides simple, yet powerful management tools. Because the AP-5181 operates wirelessly, all of this can be implemented outdoors without the added cost of installing network cable or fiber.
  • Mesh networking creates a flexible, easily-managed network
    Using its mesh capability, the dual-radio AP-5181 can connect to other access points for data backhaul while providing network access to local users. Enabling an array of applications, from simple point-to-point bridges connecting two wired networks to complex multi-node, multi-link networks, this feature offers a simple way to extend the network to outdoor or remote locations. The self-assembling and self-healing aspects of a mesh network make the network flexible and easy to manage. This, combined with the straightforward configuration interface, makes deploying and maintaining a secure wireless network of access points almost effortless.
  • Engineered to withstand the elements
    ecause the AP-5181 was specifically designed for outdoor use in harsh conditions, it can withstand wind, rain and extreme temperatures. It comes standard with integrated lightning arrestors and surge protection. The optional protective heavy weather mounting kit is designed to protect it from windblown debris at velocities of up to 130 mph, while the surge-protected power tap kit converts high voltage on light poles to low voltage to run the AP. In fact, Motorola offers everything required for a full outdoor AP solution, including a host of outdoor dual-band antennas and outstanding support.
