Overview:

The Aruba AirMesh MSR2000 delivers high-performance wireless mesh routing to outdoor environments where wired connectivity is impractical or unavailable.

Ruggedized and hardened to withstand extreme environmental conditions, the MSR2000 is ideal for deployment in metropolitan and industrial areas, oilfields, mines, and shipping ports.

A multi-radio, multi-frequency architecture and adaptive Layer 3 routing using the Aruba MeshOS operating system make the MSR2000 unique. Together, they provide unparalleled capacity, reliability, low latency and seamless handoffs for voice, HD-quality video and other real-time applications.

Features:

Flexible, High-capacity Architecture

The MSR2000 consists of two independent 802.11n radios for flexible outdoor wireless mesh deployments using the 2.4-GHz, 5-GHz and 4.9-GHz band.

Each radio may be configured to operate as a Wi-Fi access point (AP) or as a point-to-point, point-to-multipoint and full mesh backhaul. This dual-radio architecture separates client access and mesh backbone data while optimizing radio resources for both types of traffic to ensure high throughput and low latency.

Intelligent Wireless Mesh Routing

Integrated with Aruba MeshOS, Adaptive Wireless Routing (AWR) technology automatically optimizes traffic routes between wireless mesh routers and creates a truly adaptive mesh infrastructure.

With AWR, the mesh infrastructure adjusts dynamically to traffic levels and RF signal strength to ensure high availability and optimal performance across multiple network hops.

Aruba’s MobileMatrix, another key MeshOS Layer 3 technology, allows Wi-Fi clients to move between wireless mesh routers in less than 50 milliseconds, maintaining a seamless connection for latency-sensitive applications, such as video and voice.

HD-quality Video

For HD-quality video from mobile and fixed surveillance cameras, monitors and recording systems, the Active Video Transport (AVT) technology in MeshOS provides traffic management and load balancing across the mesh.

AVT uses deep packet inspection, MAC protocol optimization, in-network retransmission protocol and adaptive video jitter removal to deliver enhanced video at up to 30 frames per second.

Reduced Capital and Operating Costs

In addition to reducing capital and operating expenses by simplifying deployment, the MSR4000 eliminates the high cost of installing copper or fiber-optic cabling, as well as monthly fees for leased lines, digital subscriber line (DSL) and metro Ethernet services.
