The Alcatel-Lucent OmniAccess AP80M is the ideal wireless solution for harsh outdoor environments where conven-

tional Wi-Fi access points cannot be deployed. The OmniAccess AP80M is a dual-radio 802.11a/b/g access point that

also supports wireless air monitoring capability. Designed for extreme, all-weather deployment (such as extreme heat,

cold, rain), the OmniAccess AP80M operates as a “thin” AP, fully controlled and managed by an OmniAccess WLAN

switch. The OmniAccess AP80M’s flexible design supports a variety of attachable antennas and supports an integrated

PPP over Ethernet client for remote deployments over service provider networks.
