The OM5P is a high speed 5 GHz 802.11n wireless mesh access point ideally suited for adding robust 5 GHz Internet coverage to your existing Open-Mesh networks. Examples include hotels, apartments, neighborhoods, coffee shops, shopping malls, campgrounds, and marinas.
The 5 GHz band is less congested than 2.4 GHz, so the OM5P is ideal for offloading 5 GHz-capable clients to the faster 5 GHz band, leaving 2.4 GHz for legacy clients. In most situations, you will want to pair this access point with a 2.4 GHz model such as the OM2P or OM2P-HS.
With flat 20dBm power (2-5dBi higher than most access points) and dual receive amplifiers to boost incoming signals, the OM5P provides incredible speed with more range than comparable 5 GHz access points.
Open-Mesh OM Series access points are compatible with passive 12-24v PoE. This is not 802.11af PoE compatible, so these access points cannot be used with standard PoE switches or PoE injectors. Passive POE keeps costs low, reduces heat dissipation and allows for the most compact size possible. We sell a line of PoE injectors and power supplies to power these access points.
