Important! Change the 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 AP170 is a multi-channel mesh wireless access point with a watertight chassis that can be deployed in virtually any outdoor setting, including extreme environments.

With four antennas and the ability to provide service concurrently on both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands, the AP170 supports 802.11n and legacy 802.11a, b, and g clients. The device provides 2x2:2 MIMO and a single 10/100/1000 Ethernet port through which it is powered using PoE (power over Ethernet) that follows the IEEE 802.3at standard.

The Extreme AP170 is specifically designed for outdoor high-bandwidth wireless deployments in harsh environments. The AP170 supports a variety of authentication and security protocols, including Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ WPA™ and WPA2™, 802.11i, WEP, 802.1X, PSK, Extreme Networks’s patented PPSK, and AES:CCMP, TKIP, and RC4 (WEP only) encryption.
