APC echo 5

Rad 8 NR
The APC ECHO 5 is a device made for cost-effective and long distance connectivity (up to 50 km). One main advantage of this new model is the unique mounting system designed to utilize standard satellite offset dish antennas to provide increased system gain and distance. These antennas are readily obtainable in most countries thereby reducing freight and inventory costs.
The aluminum housing improves RF performance, allowing solid communications in interference laden environments as well as providing strength against the elements.
APC ECHO 5 is a universal device that can be used in a two different ways: with a 60 cm offset dish antenna provided by Deliberant or with a 3rd party offset dish antenna.
The product is equipped with a high output power MIMO radio (up to 28 dBm) and when coupled to Deliberant’s 27 dBi dual-polarized, 60 cm, offset satellite dish antenna it is ideal for long range wireless communication. Equipped with Deliberant’s dual firmware image feature, remote software upgrades are assured even if a power failure interrupts the process. The device will restart using the prior firmware in the event of an upgrade failure. The APC ECHO 5 uses an advanced and feature-rich operating system that supports network bridge/router and wireless repeater modes (repeater mode allows the product to operate as an access point and as a station at the same time). Deliberant OS also supports Deliberant’s iPoll; a proprietary wireless communication technology that increases throughput, packet per second rate, and stabilizes latency on your network. It has a user-friendly Adobe Flex based GUI with instant reconfiguration without a reboot, includes useful installation tools (site survey, delayed reboot, spectrum analyzer, ping, traceroute) and is compatible with our standalone and cloud based Wireless Network Management System (WNMS) - one of the most advanced management tools on the market.
