This multiple antenna access point, featuring beamforming antenna techniques, provides flexible deployment options to meet a service provider's unique network requirements.
The WAP 800 with multiple antennas provides up to four times more gain in downlink transmit and eight times more gain in uplink receive compared to a single antenna system. In addition, use of smart antenna algorithms enhances the coverage and capacity of the WAP 800. The WAP 800 benefits from beamforming techniques which use subscriber feedback to adaptively direct antenna beams. Beamforming techniques not only enhance gain for subscribers, but also reduce interference. The WAP 800 utilizes eight receive antennas which provide superior uplink budgets that enable user data rates similar to the speed of cable broadband rates.
The WAP 800 has an integrated design that provides high availability, reduced real estate requirements, redundancy, and simple connections between components. Flexible hardware and software programmable radios provide no-touch software updates. Integrated RF antenna design eliminates the need for costly, heavy coaxial cables between the multiple antennas and baseband modules. This integrated design avoids power loss and tower loading issues associated with heavy, RF coaxial cables.
The WAP 800 has an IP end-to-end design. Its flat IP network architecture eliminates high-cost, centralized boxes, simplifies management, and reduces core transport costs. Connectivity to standard IP equipment allows operators to realize significant cost advantages.
The WAP 800, like Motorola's entire wi4 WiMAX product portfolio, offers ease of installation, management and operation. The WAP 800 Series features low power consumption, software defined radios, multiple regulatory compliances, small, "zero-footprint" base sites with an all-outdoors design and flexible mounting options for both the smart antenna RF Modules and the Base Control Unit.
The WAP 800 provides Non-Line-of-Sight, fixed and mobile wireless broadband connections with high capacity in even the most challenging environments. The WAP 800 can dynamically select beamforming techniques that are optimized for fixed and mobile applications. This gives subscribers consistently transparent, high throughput in all environments.
The WAP 800 (4X8) multiple antenna access point with significantly higher link budget and flat IP architecture fits well with the rest of the Motorola Flexible Access Point System and will support seamless inter-technology handovers. The WAP 800 with common IP core features low latency performance, WiMAX certified QoS (Quality of Service), traffic prioritization, and security that interoperates and provides excellent performance not only for the conventional applications but also for the next generation mobile broadband based applications.
