Motorola AP7131

Wireless Access Point


The AP-7131 802.11n Wireless Access Point delivers the throughput, coverage and resiliency required to build an all-wireless enterprise. The tri-radio design provides simultaneous support for high-speed wireless voice and data services, self-healing mesh networking and non-data applications such as Motorola’s Wireless IPS. The fully DFS-compliant 802.11n Draft 2.0 device offers speeds up to 600 Mbps per access point — six times the bandwidth of an 802.11a/g access point. And Adaptive AP provides unparalleled resiliency and flexibility, enabling the AP-7131 to be deployed as either a stand-alone wireless access point or adopted by a Motorola wireless switch for centralized configuration and management.

Part number

Unmatched RF performance
Conducted transmit power of 27.7dBm and superior receive sensitivity provide best in class range, coverage and application performance, even in harsh RF conditions

802.11n support with 3X3 MIMO
Delivers maximum wireless network throughput to support virtually any enterprise application, including voice and video

Band-unlocked dual band design
The ability to dedicate multiple radios to multiple functions increases security without increasing costs; band-unlocked radios enable 24×7 dual band Wireless IPS sensing on both 2.4GHz and 5GHz with concurrent 802.11a/b/g/n client access and mesh

Gap-free dedicated 24×7 sensing via triple methodology rogue AP detection: on-channel, mobile unit and dedicated radio dual-band scanning
Around the clock network protection through instant rogue detection

Spectrum Analysis
The ability to place a remote AP-7131 in Spectrum Analysis mode allows remote identification of local RF interference, enabling remote troubleshooting and issue resolution from the Network Operation Center (NOC) or other centralized location

Adaptive AP: extending the enterprise
Enables centralized management of mesh access points at remote sites including automatic firmware upgrades; provides site survivability for remote locations with 802.11a/b/g/n networks for unparalleled resiliency

802.3af dual-radio support
Standard Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) provides power for both radios; intelligent power management enables self-configuration based on available power; eliminates the need to upgrade the PoE infrastructure

Integrated Router, DHCP server, Stateful Packet Inspection Firewall, AAA server, NAT, and Hotspot Gateway
Eliminates need to purchase and manage additional equipment; simplifies provisioning of network services and public access

Mesh networking
Allows wireless extension of existing wired or wireless networks in remote or outdoor locations

802.11i, WPA2, WPA and IPSec encryption
End-to-end enterprise class wired and wireless security
