TQ4400e

Enterprise-Class Outdoor Wireless Access Point

The Allied Telesis TQ4400e Enterprise-Class Outdoor Wireless Access Point (AP) features dual radio for concurrent 2.4/5GHz operations with a high-powered amplifier and IEEE 802.11ac 2ss technology, capable of 1175Mbps raw wireless capacity.

TQ4400e

The TQ4400e is based on IEEE 802.11ac, with two-spatial-stream Multiple Input and Multiple Output (MIMO), which can deliver more than twice the wireless capacity of 802.11n APs.

The TQ4400e may operate either in standalone or AP-cluster mode, or be controlled by the UWC controller. It is suitable for a wide range of deployments—from SMBs to large Enterprises.

In large deployments with centralized control and management by UWC WLAN controller, operating costs are kept low by making the network simple to configure, monitor and manage. For smaller deployments, without the UWC controller, APs can function either as standalone APs or as a cluster of APs. When operating as a cluster, APs are grouped to share the configuration and manage the channel automatically, and there is a single point of management for easy control of all APs. This reduces the cost for multiple AP configuration and operation management.

The TQ4400e is equipped with advanced encryption and authentication IEEE 802.11i capabilities. It protects a WLAN by segmenting public and private access with multiple Service Set Identifications (SSIDs) and VLAN Tagging. Rogue AP detection provides the ability to detect unauthorized APs, thus preventing unauthorized entry to the wireless network.

The TQ4400e can be deployed in harsh outdoor environments and is accompanied by a wall/pole mounting kit and four omni-directional antennas. Power is supplied via Power over Ethernet (IEEE 802.11at, PoE Plus).

Key Features

Flexible management

  • The TQ4400e can operate in either standalone or companion mode with a wireless access controller. This flexibility allows selection of the management approach that best fits the network.
  • For large-scale network deployment, a wireless controller offers a single point of management for operation, administration and maintenance of all APs.
  • Clustering offers a single management point, which synchronizes provisioning for a group of APs. It also optimizes wireless coverage, due to dynamic channel selection among group members.
  • As a standalone AP, the TQ4400e detects adjacent APs and acts promptly to prevent radio interference.

IEEE 802.11ac technology

  • Advanced IEEE 802.11ac technology provides a high-performance wireless link with improved bandwidth, efficiency and robustness, and allows for backward compatibility with older IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n clients. This high level of throughput and range performance supports multimedia applications such as high-definition video streaming.
  • The MIMO system improves reliability and capacity, mitigating the fading effects of a multipath environment.

IEEE 802.11e Wireless Multimedia (WMM)

  • Quality of Service (QoS) on WLAN optimizes resource use and fulfills the requirements of video, voice and data applications. Each of these applications creates different latency, bandwidth and packet error rate needs, and QoS caters to each of these needs using data traffic prioritization.

IEEE 802.11i (security)

  • This feature set facilitates strong encryption, authentication and key management strategies, guaranteeing data and system security. In addition to Counter Mode with Cipher Block Chaining Message Authentication Code Protocol (CCMP), IEEE 802.1X key distribution via RADIUS controls access to the network.

Multiple-SSIDs and SSID-to-VLAN mapping

  • SSID enables wireless connectivity for client devices that are assigned different security policies. Mapping SSIDs to VLANs creates logical network separation, which differentiates between communication by application, functions or user communities.

Dynamic VLANs

  • Dynamic VLANs allow VLANs to be dynamically assigned on a per-user (wireless client) basis. The Dynamic VLAN feature interacts with an external RADIUS server, so that user information is centralized in RADIUS for ease of management. It is not necessary to configure user information on APs.
  • The TQ4400e also supports RADIUS server redundancy, via configuration of a secondary RADIUS server.

PoE - IEEE 802.3at conformance

  • TQ4400e conforms to the IEEE 802.3at standard. This enables simplified deployment, lower installation costs and centralized power management capabilities for critical network devices.

Graphical User Interface

  • The Web-based user interface is user-friendly and intuitive, minimizing training needs.

Rugged, weather-resistant enclosure 

  • The TQ4400e is equipped with high power radio transceivers (>20dBm) for best-in-class-performance and lightning arrestors/surge protectors as recommended for outdoor installation.
  • The metallic enclosure and the plastic cover is manufactured to repel ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun; these protective measure, the extended operating range (-40°C~65°C) and the vent for internal pressure equalization, make the TQ4400e an ideal solution for any local or venue including ski and beach resorts, sports arenas, college and corporate campuses, indoor industrial environments and businesses located in snowy, rainy and arid climates.

Mounting options

  • The TQ4400e is delivered with wall/pole mounting and antenna kits.
  • The external antenna kit consists of two (2) detachable antennas for the 2.4 GHz radio and two (2) detachable antennas for the 5 GHz radio.
  • The N-type female connectors allow replacement of the supplied omni-directional antennas with the most appropriate for the use case.
