Aruba Mesh Router MSR2000 Features
The Aruba MSR2000 outdoor wireless mesh router delivers high-performance networking to outdoor environments where wired connectivity is impractical or unavailable.
Ruggedized and hardened to withstand extreme environmental conditions, the MSR2000 is ideal for deployment in oil fields, refineries, quarries and mining sites as well as metro areas, retail centers, business parks and transportation hubs.
What makes the MSR2000 unique is its multi-radio, multi-frequency architecture and adaptive Layer 3 technology. Together, they provide unparalleled speed and reliability, low latency, and seamless handoffs for voice, video and other real-time applications across long-distance outdoor wireless mesh networks.
Flexible, high-performance architecture
The MSR2000 consists of two independent 802.11a/b/g/n radios for flexible outdoor wireless mesh deployments using the 2.4-GHz, 5-GHz and 4.9-GHz U.S. public safety band.
Each radio may be configured to operate as an access point (AP) or as a point-to-point, point-to-multipoint and full mesh backhaul. This two-radio architecture separates client access and mesh backbone data while optimizing radio resources for both types of traffic to ensure high throughput and low latency.
Intelligent wireless mesh routing
The MSR2000 leverages Aruba’s Adaptive Wireless Routing™ (AWR™) technology, which automatically optimizes traffic routes between multiple wireless mesh routers. AWR creates a truly adaptive mesh infrastructure that adjusts dynamically to traffic levels and RF signal strength to ensure high availability and zero performance degradation across multiple hops.
Aruba’s MobileMatrix™, another key Layer 3 technology inherent in the MSR2000, allows clients to move between wireless mesh routers in under 50 milliseconds, maintaining a seamless connection for latency-sensitive applications such as video and voice.
The MSR2000 employs Active Video Transport™ (AVT™) traffic shaping and load balancing technology across long-range directional links to deliver HD-quality video from mobile and fixed surveillance cameras, monitors and recording systems.
AVT delivers enhanced video at up to 30 frames per second across the distributed wireless mesh infrastructure using deep packet inspection, MAC protocol optimization, an in-network retransmission protocol, and adaptive video jitter removal.
Reduced capital and operating costs
The MSR2000 reduces capital and operating costs by simplifying deployment and eliminating the need for cabling in metro and remote outdoor environments. Aruba wireless mesh routers eliminate the high cost of installing copper or fiber optic cabling, as well as monthly fees for leased line, digital subscriber line (DSL) and metro Ethernet services.
