The Altitude 3550 has dual concurrent radios that supports simultaneous operation of 802.11a and 802.11g/b wireless networks. Used with the Summit WM3000 series controllers for management and control, they are ideal for large-scale wireless deployments. The access points enable high-performance voice services. They can also be deployed in remote sites across a WAN link with remote site survivability. With built-in wireless encryption capability and wireless QoS priority mechanisms, it enables the deployment of enterprise-class wireless service in conjunction with Summit WM3000 series controllers and Extreme Networks Wireless Management Suite.
Altitude 3550 delivers enterprise-class wireless networking in harsh environments. In addition to a NEMA 4X-modified housing, severe-weather features include integrated lightning arrestors, surge protectors, extreme temperature range operation and an array of antenna accessories. Using its mesh capability, the dual-radio Altitude 3550 can connect to other access points for data backhaul on one radio, while providing wireless service on another radio. This enables extension of the wireless capabilities from simple point-to-point bridges connecting to wired networks to complex multi-node, multi-link networks.
