ORiNOCO® AP-4000
Enterprise-Class AP with QoS Support


High-Performance Access Point Delivers Scalability for Large Wi-Fi® Deployments

The ORiNOCO AP-4000 Access Point is the flagship solution in Proxim’s next-generation line of access points supporting enterprise voice and video applications. The AP-4000 delivers enterprise-scale security, management and QoS features, and is pre-configured with tri-mode for best-in-class performance and flexibility in large deployments. The AP-4000 is perfect for large production Wi-Fi and metro-Wi-Fi networks.

  • Tri-mode and AP-to-AP communication for deployment in large or hard-to-reach areas
  • Unique 802.11a scalability – external antenna connectors for increased transmit distance, and maximum system gain on B/G radio for repeating configurations
  • Twice the memory of competing APs, ensuring software upgrade capacity
  • Industry-leading throughput with 802.11g and 802.11a simultaneous operation, and new Super Mode
  • New level of intelligent rogue access point and client detection
  • Sophisticated hotspot interfaces with RADIUS integration
  • Pre-standard IEEE 802.11e quality of service support for latency-sensitive applications
  • Upgradeable to AP-4000M Mesh AP with ORiNOCO Mesh Creation Protocol Software download

Proactive Security Measures to Protect Your Network

ORiNOCO access points support the latest security standards, including IEEE 802.11i and AES encryption, and add proactive security measures.

  • IEEE 802.1X mutual authentication
  • Dynamic per-user, per-session rotating keys
  • Rogue access point detection, notification
  • Secure management interfaces: SNMPv3, SSL and SSH
  • Intra-cell blocking to prevent client-to-client snooping

Easy to Deploy and Manage

Ease of deployment and integration with the wired network are critical factors in a successful, profitable wireless LAN rollout. ORiNOCO access points excel with key capabilities that simplify WLAN deployment.

  • Tools to speed installation and optimization: automatic channel selection, adjustable transmit power, external antenna connectors
  • Wireless repeating functionality in areas without Ethernet wiring
  • Remote management via SNMP, HTTP and Telnet
  • Extensive RADIUS accounting support
  • Powerful group configuration, software updates and automatic alerts via ProximVision® Network Management System

Reliable by Design

With over 10 years of experience in the design and manufacture of wireless LANs, Proximunderstands that service providers and enterprises require the same uptime and reliability in a wireless network as in a wired network. ORiNOCO access points offer:

  • Robust features for enterprise, public access – compared to consumer grade APs
  • Automatic reconfiguration of security policy in the event of power loss
  • IEEE 802.3af Power-over-Ethernet, plenum rating, built-in Kensington lock and external antenna connectors
