The CyBox AP 2-W is a member of the CyBox family – robust access points for railway applications. It is particularly designed to meet the requirements of rollingstock applications. It offers stable, secure, and high bandwidth connection sbetween the local Ethernet and wireless clients. With the assistance of the access point, multiple mobile Wi-Fi-compatible devices in a passenger train or subway have the possibility to communicate with the Internet or access local data, such as timetable information and multimedia data.
On the fixed network side, the access point features two Gigabit Ethernet ports which are, as an option, internally connected to an unmanaged switch and can be used either for redundancy to increase the availability of services, or to connect a second CyBox AP 2-W. The bypass relay option ensures a high-speed connection even if the access point is powered down.
The CyBox AP 2-W provides flexible powering options by either an internal power supply or Power-over-Ethernet (PoE+). The PoE daisy chaining offers wireless connectivity with two access points using just one cable – a noticeable cost saving factor especially in retrofit programs.
The CyBox AP 2-W firmware provides a convenient management interface via a web service. Besides global setup parameters the open source software OpenWrt allows the configuration of the radio interfaces, including provider information and the login dialog, as well as the setup of the stateful firewall. The access point and router configurations as well as the management firmware can be updated remotely. Furthermore the built-in fully configurable stateful firewall and multi-VPN support with hardware-accelerated encryption ensures communication security.
