Altitude 4610 is concurrent dual-radio Access Points (APs) with unlocked bands. This provides the flexibility to assign one of the radios as a sensor to scan all the channels on both bands. The bands are unlocked on each radio. The APs are managed by the Summit WM3000 series controllers. Altitude 4610 delivers full 802.11n performance and reliability.
The Altitude 4610 series APs provide flexible mounting options with built-in mounting bracket for wall or ceiling mount. Altitude 4610 comes with integrated omni-directional antennas.
Altitude 4610 APs deliver an easy-to-use, secure and high-performance wireless solution that is ideal for demanding enterprises. With the versatility to simultaneously support a wide variety of wireless needs - including video streaming, high speed data, location and voice services. Altitude 4610 dramatically simplifies the installation and operation of enterprise wireless networks.
Superior wireless performance
Altitude 4600 series APs deliver a six-fold increase in throughput over existing 802.11a/b/g legacy LANs. The 2 x 3 MIMO with dual spatial streams, along with Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiplexing (OFDM) modulation, enables the AP to deliver full 802.11n performance. An Altitude 4600 AP and an 802.11n client can bond two adjacent 20 MHz channels to create a single 40 MHz wide channel. This potentially doubles the throughput from a standard 20 MHz channel. Gigabit Ethernet connectivity to the wired network enables full speed access to the wired network. The powerful 24 dBm radio increases coverage, performance and obstruction penetration versus lower dBm radios. In addition, receiver sensitivity has been increased proportionally so users have an increased ability to maintain high-performance access through thick doors and walls to users even while on-the-move. The Altitude 4600 series APs 2 x 3 MIMO design ensures premium transmit and receive communications.
Ease of deployment and operation
Altitude 4600 series APs offer a superior return on investment when considering the total costs of upfront capital expenditure, network upgrades, installation, and operation. Flexible mounting options with built-in mounting brackets for wall or ceiling mount are available. The APs conform to the 802.3af PoE standard while delivering the full 802.11n performance. This preserves the investment in existing PoE infrastructure and eliminates the need to power each AP separately. Altitude 4600 series APs require no configuration or manual firmware maintenance. The Summit WM3000 series controller discovers the access points on the network and automatically downloads all configuration parameters and firmware, greatly reducing installation, maintenance and troubleshooting costs for Layer 2 and Layer 3 deployments. Locationing services over 802.11 networks provide the ability to locate and track people or assets, and even to control access to the network or applications. In addition, it is easy to provide hotspot and guest access and assure the user can only access authorized networks, sites or applications.
Enterprise-grade wireless services
The Altitude 4600 series APs support over-the-air QoS protocol based on 802.11e/WMM specifications. The APs also support standards-based (802.11e) Unscheduled Automatic Power Save Delivery (UAPSD/WMM Power Save) that extends the battery life of hand-held client devices like VoWLAN handsets. It enables fast secure roaming using several mechanisms including pre-authentication, opportunistic key caching, and WPA2 based PMK caching. The Altitude 4600 series APs provide low latency support for the industry-leading VoWLAN devices. The APs support over-the-air QoS protocols such as SpectraLink Voice Priority (SVP) and 802.11e based WMM specifications. Priorities can be set according to SSID, allowing critical real-time voice traffic to be assigned to a distinct high-priority queue. Interoperability with wired network traffic prioritization ensures end-to-end QoS as the traffic traverses the network. Common problems such as building attenuation, electronic interference or sub-optimal access point placement are minimized as the SMART RF feature automatically optimizes power and channel selection so that each user gets always-on high-quality access and mobility.
Comprehensive securityProduct Highlights
Altitude 4600 series APs offer a high level of security features for wired and wireless connectivity. The APs supports standards- based, over-the-air encryption schemes to protect the integrity of user data. The APs participate in wireless client authentication using 802.11i standardsbased WPA or WPA2 mechanisms. The APs also participate in its own authentication with the wired switch port using 802.1X. They can support several security profiles based on application. On-board hardware accelerated encryption engine supports WEP, TKIP and AES standards. Unique security profiles can be configured on a per SSID basis.
