Product Description



Industrial WiFi Access Point

11ac WiFi access point for industrial applications in harsh environment and railway


The RuggedAir1000 is an all-in-one (multifunction product: access point, client, repeater, router & mesh) designed for industrial applications in harsh environments. It can be used on the ground to create a WiFi coverage at the depot or on board to connect vehicles to the ground network (trams, subways), for car-to-car communication and as an access point for passengers. It allows high-speed data transmission indoors and outdoors thanks to its extended WiFi coverage and/or from a connected mobile device. It integrates advanced security standards (WPA2-Enterprise (Radius), DoS, Firewall) as well as routing and filtering functions to facilitate mass deployments.



High Performance

High-speed 802.11ac, 1.3 Gbps (radio data rate), MIMO 3T3R.


Waterproof, IP66, with M12 connectors, 24 VDC or PoE power supply and 3 antennas to improve throughput and enhance the quality of the radio link.


The RuggedAir100's roaming performances (<30 ms) and shock/vibration resistance (EN61373) make it easy to integrate into trams, subways, trains, various machines, bridge cranes, etc.

Ease of Deployment

The RuggedAir1000 can be easily administered from WaveManager and WaveViewer. Embedded, it can be configured directly from the onboard computer via SNMP.
