High-performance outdoor wireless for hazardous locations

The Cisco Aironet® 1552H Outdoor Access Point is the hazardous locations model in the Cisco Aironet 1552 Series. It is Class I, Div 2/Zone 2 certified and specifically designed for hazardous environments, such as oil and gas refineries, chemical plants, mining pits, and manufacturing yards. The Cisco Aironet 1552H Outdoor Access Point offers a flexible, secure, and scalable mesh network for high-performance mobility. It supports multiple-device and multiple-network application delivery, such as real-time easy-to-use mobility, video surveillance, and public and private Wi-Fi access. Designed to provide reliable service under the most demanding conditions, the Cisco Aironet 1552H Outdoor Access Point offers the following benefits:

     Flexible deployment options: Access or mesh network, extension of an Ethernet network, and Ethernet, fiber, or wireless backhaul.

     Cisco CleanAir® technology: Integrated spectrum intelligence to detect, classify, and mitigate RF interference from unauthorized wireless bridges or malicious devices.

     High-bandwidth video surveillance: Video transmission over Wi-Fi without the high cost of installing cables over long distances.

     High-performance, multipurpose network: Provides both low Capital Expenditures (CapEx) and Operating Expenses (OpEx).

     Integrated wired and wireless: The Cisco® Borderless Network Architecture provides cost savings with end‑to-end network access solutions that include wireless, switching, routing, and security.

Flexible, high-performance mesh

The Cisco Aironet 1552H Outdoor Access Point offers a flexible, secure, and scalable mesh platform as part of the Cisco Unified Wireless Network. The access point enables high-performance mobility across large oil and gas facilities, chemical plants, manufacturing yards, and mining pits. The 1552H provides high-performance device access through improved radio sensitivity and range with 802.11a, b, g, and n Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) technology with two spatial streams and contains a dual-radio system (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) with three N-type female external antenna connectors for dual-band omnidirectional and directional antennas. For more information, including antenna patterns, see the Cisco Aironet Antennas and Accessories Guide: https://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/wireless/ps469/index.html.

Multiple uplink and power options are available with the 1552H. The 802.3af-compliant, Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) output port makes it easy to connect IP devices, such as IP video cameras. The Cisco Aironet 1552H Outdoor Access Point is certified for Class I, Div 2/Zone 2 environments and provides a rugged design suitable for the most demanding industrial applications. Lightning arrestors for surge protection are also supported.

Cisco CleanAir technology

Cisco CleanAir technology is a systemwide feature of the Cisco Unified Wireless Network, which improves wireless network quality by detecting RF interference that other systems can’t recognize, identifying the source, locating it, and then making automatic adjustments to optimize wireless coverage. The Aironet 1552H Outdoor Access Point uses chip-level intelligence to create a spectrum-aware, self-healing, and self-optimizing wireless network that mitigates the impact of wireless interference.

RF excellence

Building on the Cisco Aironet heritage of RF excellence, the 1552H delivers industry-leading performance for secure and reliable wireless connections. Industrial-grade parts, enterprise-class silicon-level intelligence, and optimized radios deliver a robust mobility experience. The access point provides a set of tools that deliver the robust, scalable wireless foundation required to realize the true potential of outdoor wireless mobility:

     Cisco ClientLink technology to raise uplink and downlink performance of and coverage to existing 802.11a and g clients

     Radio Resource Management (RRM) for automated channel selection and power setting management of access points

     Advanced capabilities to select data rates, adjust power, and manage Quality of Service (QoS) for access points

Centrally managed mesh network

Central management and troubleshooting of the Cisco outdoor wireless access points prevent costly maintenance service calls to outdoor locations. The Cisco Prime Infrastructure works in conjunction with the Cisco Aironet access points and Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers to configure and manage the wireless networks. With Cisco Prime Infrastructure, network administrators have an all-in-one solution for RF prediction, policy provisioning, network optimization, troubleshooting, security monitoring, and wireless LAN systems management. Cisco CleanAir technology is integrated with the Cisco Prime Infrastructure to provide real-time information on your outdoor network. Wireless network security is also a part of a unified wired and wireless solution. Cisco wireless network security offers the highest level of network security, which helps ensure that data remains private and secure and that the network is protected from unauthorized access.
