Access/One Network OWS
Access/One Network IWS

Access/One Network OWS enables the deployment of 802.11 networks across large urban areas, rural counties and entire regions — ideal for government agencies, public utility and transportation providers, and mobile users who want uninterrupted service on a citywide basis. Unlike traditional access points that offer limited coverage within predefined hot spots, or single radio/single RF mesh solutions that won’t scale, Access/One Network OWS provisions wireless hot zones that can extend over hundreds of square miles. Not an access point, but a fully integrated and coherent wireless network system that delivers intelligence, scalability, security and unrivaled performance to the outdoor environment.

The Future Is Now
Access/One Network OWS delivers any mix of backhaul and client services in a single form factor to simplify planning and installation, reduce deployment costs, and deliver a high performance wireless mesh networking system.

Access/One Network OWSAccess/One Network OWS builds on our proven indoor distributed mesh architecture by offering backhaul and client services in a high performance 802.11a/b/g model, unlike competitive solutions that offer either a single wireless technology or require third party APs to provision client services. The roles of specific nodes within the network are determined by the mix of modules mounted in the enclosure and how they are configured—either client connect, network connect, or network server. The Access/One Network OWS can support any combination of 802.11 a/b/g, both to the client and in the mesh backbone, dedicating modules for specific functions within a node. Supporting up to 6 radios in an Access/One Network OWS node means maximum flexibility to deliver multi-radio mesh backbones, and multi-RF client connectivity.

Download our System Description Brochure to learn more about how the Access/One Network delivers the highest performance multi-radio, multi-channel, and multi-RF wireless mesh networking system for outdoor deployments.

Access/One Network Module with Palm for SizeAccess/One Network IWS achieves fully wireless connectivity by incorporating mesh topology. The Access/One Network mesh framework allows for wireless backhaul. Wireless backhaul frees the network from the ties of Ethernet cable. By removing the wires, the Access/One Network is infinitely easier and less expensive to deploy and scale than so-called wireless networks, such as point products and wireless LAN “switch” systems. Both of those solutions require that Ethernet cable be run to the access points. And unlike point products and WLAN “switch” systems, the Access/One Network has no single point of failure that can disrupt the network.

Access/One Network delivers innovative, intelligent management functionality. Access/One Network has distributed intelligence across the system by implementing management software at the node level. Each node is an independent thinking machine, yet all nodes work in concert, constantly inter-communicating to optimize network operation. Access/One Network Nodes self configure, self discover, self tune and self heal.  While Access/One Network self-manages, the same management functionality is available via the Manager/One software interface, giving the IT manager complete manual control over Access/One Network’s operation.

Not only does Access/One Network deliver an easily managed, truly wireless LAN system, it does so in a small, light-weight, modular design that’s easy to deploy. Every Access/One Network Node supports multiple RF technologies, giving you the ability to build the network that’s right for you. Access/One Network can accommodate any combination of 802.11a/b/g.

Modularity offers the ultimate in flexibility. Changing RF technology configurations is as easy as replacing modules. Strix Systems’ future proofs your investment, too. As future RF technologies become available, Access/One Network is ready to adopt.

IT managers demand comprehensive network security. Access/One Network delivers with a full suite of standards based security options for authentication and encryption. Learn more about Strix Systems’ security by reading our security recommendations paper.

Strix Systems further lowers the costs and hurdles to implementation by creating an open standards-based wireless LAN solution. Access/One Network works as a stand-alone network, but easily integrates into any existing LAN environment. There’s no need to integrate new applications or invest in costly hardware add-ons.

No Wires – A truly wireless networking solution
No Waiting – Fast, easy deployments
No Worries – A wireless networking system that is secure, easy to manage, and built to grow with you.
Network Server
The Network Server is a critical component in the Access/One Network.  It consists of a hardware platform and base software, plus additional optional software modules.  The hardware is an Access/One Network module and can be installed into any Network Node within the system.  The software running on this module provides much of the intelligence within the system and facilitates most of Access/One Network’s unique features and functions.

Overseeing management and control of the system, the Network Server provides distributed functionality that enables the Access/One Network to function as a secure wireless system that scales as the Enterprise network grows.

Some of the key features provided by the Network Server are:
• Advanced Security (standards-based and enhanced, system-wide) 
• Dynamic Operation (self-configuration, self-tuning and self-healing) 
• Network Management (monitor, configure, diagnose and meter) 
• Traffic Prioritization and Control (switching and routing) 
• Enhanced User Mobility and Tracking

Network Server options are:
Network Server Module
Bluetooth Mobility Software
Strix Network Server
Client Connect
Client Connect is the system topology that enables Access/One Network to support and provide access to client devices using any wireless technology.  Consisting of a series of Access/One Network modules supporting 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g, the Client Connect choice enables you to customize each Network Node to support the wireless technologies you need in the enterprise locations you need them.

Strix Client Connect By providing the widest mix of wireless technologies available in a single system, Access/One Network enables end users to connect to the network no matter what standards-based wireless technology they use.  Any mix of these technologies can be supported within a single Network Node or across the entire Access/One Network.

Whether users carry a notebook, PDA, barcode reader, or other WLAN or Bluetooth device, they are able to stay continually connected to the network as they move about the building.  No special software is needed on the device. No special configuration is needed to remain connected.

Access/One Network was designed to be modular and flexible, and each Network Node is capable of supporting one, two or three Client Connect modules of any type and mix, providing you with the configuration options to meet all your user connectivity needs.  In addition, support of future Client Connect wireless technologies, such as 802.16a or Ultrawideband, is as simple as adding the appropriate module to the Network Nodes where needed.

The Client Connect category of Access/One Network enables you to provide secure network access for any type and mix of wireless users within your network infrastructure.  This enables support for diverse wireless user requirements at all levels of the organization (corporate, divisional, departmental and group level).

Client Connect is available in these configurations:
    802.11a Client Connect
    802.11b Client Connect
    802.11g Client Connect
    Bluetooth Client Connect

Network Connect
Network Connect is the system infrastructure used by Access/One Network for wired or wireless connection to the corporate LAN. Each Network Node within the Access/One Network can utilize a wired 10/100 Ethernet or wireless 802.11a/802.11g module as a method of Node interconnectivity or connection to the enterprise network. Providing this wired or wireless choice for Node connectivity to the network achieves the ultimate in network flexibility and control.
Access/One NetworkWhen Nodes in the Access/One Network are equipped with the wireless Network Connect option,
the system provides several distinct advantages over a typical wireless network that uses wired connections, including:
    •    Secure Networking – LAN connection has strong encryption by default
    •    Self Tuning – discovery of optimal path for greatest performance
    •    Self Healing – failure conditions are routed around with no user intervention
    •    Highly Scalable – system grows without the need for infrastructure changes
    •    Simple Installation – system self configures itself, no additional wiring
    •    Cost Effective – high costs of pulling Ethernet cables are avoided

Unlike traditional wired 10/100 Ethernet LAN connections used by Access Points and WLAN Switches, the wireless Network Connect option for Access/One Network provides an advanced level of security between the Node and the corporate LAN. Utilizing AES encryption with a secret key by default, the wireless Network Connect link is secure and cannot be  compromised.

Access/One Network also supports a Network Connect via 10/100 Ethernet. When configured with this option, the Network Node connects to the network via a traditional wired Ethernet link, much like other Access Point and WLAN Switch solutions. The difference is that the Node is part of a cohesive and scalable wireless system, taking full advantage of the benefits that Access/One Network brings.

Support for Power over Ethernet (PoE) is included as standard when using wired Network Connect, with three different types supported in all products, including IEEE 802.3af and Cisco’s two proprietary versions.

The Network Connect category of Access/One Network provides you with the most flexible networking options.  Choose from traditional wired 10/100 Ethernet, or a revolutionary method of wireless connectivity that brings unprecedented system features and capabilities.

Network Connect is available in these configurations:
    Wired Ethernet Network Connect
