HotPort 5020-E/ER Infrastructure Edge Node
HotPort 5020 infrastructure nodes bring cost-effective edge-level connectivity
solutions to Firetide’s core wireless infrastructure portfolio. Operators can now use HotPort 5020 to connect their edge devices onto existing HotPort 7000 series based mesh networks. The 5020 infrastructure node provides an optimum balance between cost and performance for data connectivity applications such as ITS, sensor backhaul, Wi-Fi offload, and broadband extension. Additionally, the HotPort 5020-ER model offers reliability by using intelligent link switching between the two radios on the boundary of a core mesh network.
HotPort 5020-LNK Point-to-Point Node
Firetide HotPort 5020-LNK infrastructure nodes provide low-cost, PTP connectivity between two locations. The 5020-LNK utilizes the MIMO technology to provide better throughput and performance for a backhaul link. 5020-LNK deliver up to 50 Mbps of UDP throughput with data rates of up to 300 Mbps. With pre-packaged software licenses, antennas and other accessories, the HotPort 5020-LNK is optimized to provide high capacity and low-latency point-to-point connectivity right out of the box.
Privacy and Security
HotPort 5020 nodes supports the industry’s highest level of security to ensure privacy for communications and reduce liability for service providers. Like all components of the Firetide wireless mesh and access infrastructure, HotPort 5020 nodes offers WPA2-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access) based authentication for an unmatched, solid, and trusted network.
Quality of Service
Firetide’s patented AutoMeshTM platform supports advanced load balancing and congestion control mechanisms for optimal routing within the mesh network. The HotPort 5020 infrastructure node also provides extensive VLAN capabilities critical for deploying a multi-service network on a large scale.
All models of HotPort 5020 infrastructure nodes are software configurable to operate in 2.4, 4.9 and 5 GHz. The PoE powered HotPort 5020 nodes eliminate the need for running both data and power wires to the nodes. HotPort 5020 infrastructure nodes can utilize channel widths of 5, 10, 20 and 40 MHz, with 5 and 10 MHz channel widths only available on the 4.9 GHz band. Dynamic Frequency selection is available for approved list of countries.
Easy to Use and Deploy PTMP Connectivity
Point-to-multipoint connectivity is a cost-effective means of interconnecting edge devices or office buildings right out of the box. Using a HotPort 7000 as a base station, multiple HotPort 5020s can act as customer premise equipment, creating point-to-multipoint connections.
5020-LNK utilizes the MIMO technology to provide better throughput and performance for a backhaul link. It can deliver up to 50 Mbps of UDP throughput with data rates of up to 300 Mbps.
The HotPort 5020-ER infrastructure node features dual radios with one active radio and one radio dedicated to the backup link to the same or different node. For mission critical applications where redundancy is not only important but highly essential, HotPort 5020-ER will intelligently re-route the network data through the redundant backup link in the event of a failure.
5020-LNK provides true bridging functionality and is agnostic to the types of client or protocols on the network. It supports transparent overlay of multiple subnet (VLANs) over the point-to-point link. It also provides seamless transport of multicast and broadcast traffic over the point-to-point link, including IPTV distribution, video on demand, video surveillance and video conferencing. In addition, to prevent bandwidth abuse, 5020-LNK provides advanced tools such as multicast rate limits.
Complete Infrastructure Solution
5020-LNK is a natural expansion of Firetide’s core wireless infrastructure technology to PTP applications. Firetide’s expertise in large-scale wireless mesh networks for video, data and voice applications in harsh environments ensures that its point-to-point solution is optimized to provide the best-in-class performance, ease-of-use, and security in the industry.
