The Dual Outdoor API1002We leverages the combined power of two 802.11ac Wave 2 radios both operating in 4*4:4 MIMO mode, for a total of 8 parallel spatial streams. One radio is dedicated to the 2.4-GHz band providing MIMO functionality while the other radio is dedicated for the 5-GHz band providing MU-MIMO functionality. In addition, the API1002We enables concurrent dual-radio operation without impacting the radio’s performance for an aggregate PHY throughput of 2.53 Gbps. Finally, dual 1 Gbps Ethernet ports provide up to 2 Gbps wired backhaul, ideal for mesh networks.


The API1002We is IP67-rated, designed and tested for salt spray, vibration, extreme thermal conditions, shock, and dust. This allows the API1002We to operate in the toughest environments. A compliment of mounting brackets and accessories ensures that these APs are not only aesthetically pleasing, but also quick to deploy.


The Dual Outdoor AP1002We has a proprietary and fully-integrated antenna system featuring polarization and pattern diversity for enhanced MIMO and MU-MIMO operation. The 4-spatial stream 90 -beam profile provides a focused RF signal in a defined coverage area to minimize AP-to-AP interference and maximize channel re-use. Finally, the directional antennas are fully integrated into the AP reducing RF signal loss and thus effectively increasing Tx and Rx power and maximizing data rates. The dual Outdoor AP1002We’s internet antennas also reduce installation times, costs, and errors while hardening the APs long-term solution reliability.


Upon Power-up, the Dual Outdoor API1002We is auto-discovered by Everest’s WLAN controller which performs AP verification and authorization before commencing data transfer. Once authorized, updated firmware and AP configuration are downloaded in a secured and controlled tunnel for an efficient and fast bring-up and operation.
