• LANCOM OAP-1700B


Enterprise-class outdoor Wi-Fi for a large number of mobile devices

For an excellent outdoor Wi-Fi experience with a high number of wireless clients, a future-proof infrastructure is required. Based on the 802.11ac Wave 2 (Wi-Fi 5) technology, this access point provides best Wi-Fi quality in wireless networks with many parallel users (so-called high-density environments). Integrated sector antennas enable targeted area coverage. On top of that, the additionally integrated Bluetooth Low Energy radio module is the basis of modern BLE beaconing-based applications. Trust in reliable and secure Wi-Fi – "Made in Germany".

Technical features

  • Dual Concurrent Wi-Fi – parallel operation in 2.4 and 5 GHz with up to 1733 Mbps/s in IEEE 802.11ac Wave 2 and 450 Mbps in IEEE 802.11n
  • Robust IP67 protective housing - reliable even in extreme temperatures (-33°C to+70°C)
  • Integrated sector antennas for 2.4 and 5 GHz
  • Bluetooth Low Energy radio module for innovative beaconing applications
  • Connections for Gigabit Ethernet with Power over Ethernet according to IEEE 802.3at
  • Zero-touch deployment by LANCOM WLAN controller or LANCOM Management Cloud
  • Easy and secure integration of external users with the LANCOM Public Spot Option


Dual concurrent Wi-Fi with up to 1733 Mbps

The LANCOM OAP-1700B offers two Wi-Fi radio modules for parallel operation in the 2.4 and 5 GHz frequency band. This makes it the ideal choice for providing a modern outdoor hotspot in high-density environments or for professional Wi-Fi coverage of outdoor spaces in public areas or enterprise environments—thanks to IEEE 802.11ac Wave 2 (Wi-Fi 5) at a transmission rate of up to 1733 Mbps.

Maximum reliability in all weathers

The LANCOM OAP-1700B has a rugged IP67 protective housing, making it fully dust proof and water-jet resistant. It withstands temperatures between -33°C and +70°C to guarantee reliable operations even under extreme conditions.

Integrated beaconing technology

The Bluetooth Low Energy radio module integrated in the LANCOM OAP-1700B is the technical basis for modern BLE beaconing-based applications, such as push advertising services for mobile devices (iBeacon). Future firmware updates can also be used to implement additional services such as the localization of persons from objects (asset tracking / management) via partner solutions.

4x4 multi-user MIMO

Multi-user Multiple-Input-Multiple-Output (MU-MIMO for short) simultaneously distributes all of the available spatial streams of the LANCOM OAP-1700B between several Wave 2 clients, rather than one after the other as was formerly the case. The available bandwidth is used efficiently and delays in the wireless network are substantially reduced.

160-MHz channel width

Increasing the channel width from 80 to 160 MHz doubles the performance of Wave 2-enabled clients. By optimizing the use of the radio spectrum, data rates of up to 1733 Mbps are achieved.

Active Radio Control for dynamic radio-field optimization

The LANCOM OAP-1700B supports the Wi-Fi optimization feature LANCOM Active Radio Control. This intelligent combination of innovative features included with the LCOS operating system—such as Spectral Scan, Band Steering, Adaptive Noise Immunity, Adaptive RF Optimization, Airtime Fairness, and Client Steering—sustainably increases Wi-Fi performance and supports administrators with professional tools for Wi-Fi management.

LANCOM security for wireless networks

With numerous integrated security features such as IEEE 802.1X, this enterprise-class access point provides optimal security for networks. Administrators and employees alike benefit from professional security policies on the network.

Managed via LANCOM Management Cloud, WLAN controller, or stand-alone

The LANCOM OAP-1700B offers maximum flexibility in operation: Managed via the LANCOM Management Cloud (LMC), it is integrated into a holistic, automated network orchestration based on software-defined networking technology. In addition, it can be used centrally via a LANCOM WLAN controller (WLC) as well as in stand-alone mode via a graphical user interface (GUI).
