The APC 5M is a versatile, very efficient, and stable 5 GHz access point. This product is equipped with an extreme output power (up to 29 dBm) 802.11n MIMO radio wrapped securely inside a robust IP-65 compliant enclosure with two N-type connectors, suited for wide coverage area applications. The robust hardware is coupled with an advanced and feature-rich operating system optimized for high performance communications which allows compatibility with older 802.11a standards while adding support for the latest in wireless communications. The APC 5M supports access point, station, and WDS operating modes and can act as bridge or as router making it one of the most flexible devices on the market.
The robust software engine running on the APC 5M provides a user-friendly Adobe Flex - based GUI with instant changes, includes useful installation tools (Site survey, Antenna alignment, Delayed reboot) and also is compatible with Wireless Network Management System for one of the most advanced management tools on the market.
External N-connctors make APC 5M a very universal device suitable for long range point-to-point (using external dish antenna), long range point-to-multipoint (using high-gain sector antenna) or hotspot application (using omni-directional antennas).

iPoll - proprietary wireless transmission protocol
Deliberant APC series products have an option to use extremely efficient proprietary point-to-multipoint protocol called iPoll™. It eliminates mediated access by polling every subscriber sequentially. The data transmission arbitration is accomplished by the access point. Proprietary iPoll™ protocol enables maximum bandwidth with the lowest possible latency.
WNMS - managing and monitoring your networks on the cloud
All Deliberant APC series devices can be managed and monitored using WNMS (Wireless Network Management System). A single software solution simplifies a large number of tasks for network administrators. WNMS Cloud version is available for those who are not willing to run it on an in-house servers.
