2. System Overview

2.1 Introduction of OWL800

The IEEE 802.11 b/g Outdoor AP/Bridge (Support IEEE802.11a Client Backhaul) series (referred as OWL800 or the system in this manual) is a rugged multi-mode dual-radio outdoor access point, specifically designed for building municipal or campus wide wireless networks in harsh outdoor environments. There are two System Modes that can be used for dual purposes. First, it can be deployed as a traditional multi-wireless Access Point (AP) or a Relay.

Secondly, it can be used as an Outdoor Wireless Gateway with Built-in Hotspot Access Control and Billing features (* an optional feature).

The metal sealed OWL800 is weatherproof. Coming with a mounting kit, it can be mounded on a pole or on wall. This Quick Installation Guide provides instructions and reference material for getting started with OWL800 (as well as the other two models).

OWL800’s rust-free die-cast Aluminum housing is IP68 compliant and high wind load resilient. All the components are designed to operate in a wide range of temperature. The on-board surge protection provides the device up to 15KV surge immunity. The OWL800 delivers an excellent outdoor WLAN solution.

2.2 System Concept

The System contains two radio modules. Two 100mW modules are WNC’s CM9, which are tested to be modular FCC and CE compliant. The first card is mainly used for serving clients at “b/g” mode. The second Radio module is used for building point-to-point or the back haul connection in “a” mode.

OWL800 is a cost-effective choice as well as a flexible solution for constructing serviceable wireless network. Designed by the leading hotspot appliance provider, 4ipnet OWL800 behaves more than a wireless router when it is in Gateway mode. Not only it supports NAT, DHCP and firewall, it also has AAA features of a hotspot gateway, including UAM web login portal and billing plans. Standalone it has local user database for authentication, while at the same time it can play the role of RADIUS-NAS, authenticating users against ISP’s RADIUS server in the data center.

3.2.2 User Login Portal Page

To be granted the network access via OWL800, clients have to be authenticated by the system first via entering the correct usernames and passwords in the User Login Portal Page as shown below. The local account generated previously in the Setup Wizard section is used as the example to illustrate this procedure.

Step 1:

Connect a client’s PC to OWL800 via any one of the LAN Ports. The IP address will be assigned to the PC automatically via DHCP.

Step 2:

Verify New Local Account:

To verify whether the configuration with DHCP via the Setup Wizard is done properly, firstly, connect a client’s PC from the system to LAN1 Port. The device will get an IP address automatically via DHCP.

Next, open a web browser and access any URL, and then the default User Login Page will appear. Enter the username and password of the local user account generated by Setup Wizard previously (e.g. “test@local” as the Username and test” as the Password), then click Login.

Note:

1.OWL800 supports both local built-in user database and external authentication database, such as RADIUS and LDAP. Thus, by entering the full username, the system will automatically identify which authentication server is used. Exception: The postfix can be omitted only when the default authentication option is used; “local” is the default authentication option of the system. You may therefore enter either ‘test’, or ‘test@local in the username field for the previous example.

2.The format of a valid Username is: UserId@postfix, where UserId is the User ID, and postfix is a name for the chosen authentication option.
