Country Code

If your access point is configured for the World Regulatory Domain, it is important to set the country code to the country in which the AP will be deployed to meet regulatory requirements and for optimal wireless operation. To do this, follow these steps:

  • The country code selection is for World models only and is not available to FCC, CAN, and other country-specific models. Per FCC regulations, all Wi-Fi products marketed in the United States must be set to U.S. channels only.

The AP120 has two radios—one for 802.11a/n and one for 802.11b/g/n, which can both operate concurrently. Both platforms provide 2x2:2 MIMO and a single 10/100/1000 Ethernet port through which they can be powered using PoE (power over Ethernet) that follows the IEEE 802.3af and 802.3at standards. Optionally, they can be powered by an AC/DC power adapter.

The AP120 contains a 2.4 GHz radio and a 5 GHz radio that can operate concurrently through four internal antennas. These devices support a variety of Wi-Fi security protocols, including WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) and WPA2.
