Siemens Releases Outdoor AP and Latest WLAN Software

Siemens Communications released a new HiPath Wireless Outdoor Access Point (OAP) and V5 of the HiPath Wireless Convergence Software supporting Voice over WLAN and mobility-enabled FMC applications.



The Siemens HiPath Wireless OAP is designed for outdoor and industrial environments and supports Wireless Distribution Service (WDS) technology, which enables the OAP to operate without a wired Ethernet network connection. Siemens said its access point is resistant to both freshwater and saltwater, fog, humidity, dust, and dirt and has a broad operating temperature range.

The release of HiPath Wireless Convergence Software V5 offers three key elements:

  • WDS, which enables the OAP and existing HiPath Wireless access points to operate without a wired Ethernet network connection - delivering wireless backhaul capabilities.


  • Opportunistic Key Caching (OKC), a secure, fast-roaming technique that allows access points to share authentication credentials to accelerate client roaming and prevent delays in voice calls.


  • 802.1x AP authentication, which provides secure wired network integration through access point authentication.


The Siemens HiPath Wireless OAP and V5 of the HiPath Wireless Convergence Software are the seventh and eighth major releases to the HiPath Wireless portfolio in 24 months.

The Siemens HiPath Wireless OAP is available now in two models - the 2650, which has an internal antenna, and the 2660, with an external antenna. HiPath Wireless Convergence Software V5 supports the HiPath Wireless portfolio of WLAN controllers, access points and management software.
