• IEEE 802.11ac Wave 2

IEEE 802.11ac Wave 2 wireless connectivity delivers Gigabit performance and throughput. In crowded wireless environments, efficient bandwidth distribution is important; IEEE 802.11ac Wave 2 achieves efficiency and robustness, using Multi-user MIMO technology.
Unlike traditional Single-user MIMO networks where devices are served sequentially, Multi-user MIMO simultaneously communicates to multiple clients at once, reducing contention and improving capacity and throughput by up to three times.
Multi-user MIMO uses beamforming, where the AP focuses wireless signal towards connected devices, rather than simply radiating the signal evenly. This improves range and speed for each user, and reduces interference for the best possible connection.

• Dual-radio, with Band Steering

The TQm1402 contains two IEEE 802.11 2ss radios to enable concurrent Wi-Fi communications: one at 2.4GHz band, and one at 5GHz band. This alleviates network congestion and isolates any legacy client devices affecting performance.
Band steering prompts newly connecting devices to use a band with little current congestion to distribute wireless traffic, provide maximum throughput, and the best user experience.

• Virtual APs with Multiple SSIDs

The TQm1402 supports Virtual AP (VAP) functionality, with the assignment of different SSIDs and security policies for each VAP on the physical device.
VAPs can be mapped to VLANs for logical network separation and improved throughput. Enable communication by application, function or users.

• IEEE 802.11e Wireless Multimedia (WMM)

Quality of Service (QoS) on the wireless network optimizes the performance of voice, video, and data applications, as each has different latency, bandwidth and performance requirements. QoS traffic prioritization ensues the timely delivery of these service.

• IEEE 802.11i (security)

This feature set facilitates strong encryption, authentication and key management strategies, guaranteeing data and system security. In addition to Counter Mode with Cipher Block Chaining Message Authentication Code Protocol (CCMP), IEEE 802.1X key distribution via RADIUS controls access to the network.

• Captive Portal

Manage user access to the Wi-Fi network with captive portal. New users are taken to a login page ensuring they must authenticate before gaining access to the wireless network, and any online resources and applications.

• Dynamic VLANs

Dynamic VLANs simplify management by enabling users to be separated on different VLANs according to rules defined in a centralized user database. When a user connects, their credentials are checked and the VLAN assigned automatically to the AP. An external RADIUS server is supported and a secondary RADIUS server can also be specified for redundancy.

• Graphical User Interface

The web-based user interface is user friendly and intuitive, minimizing training needs, and allowing easy management and monitoring of a single AP. AWC enables management of multiple APs, and automatic wireless network optimization.

• Airtime Fairness

Airtime Fairness equally assigns airtime to each connected client, to ensure fair and predictable sharing of bandwidth. This feature prevents any client from monopolizing the bandwidth when transferring a large amount of data, and ensures consistent performance for all users.

• Fast Roaming

Fast Roaming with 802.11k, 802.11v, and 802.11r optimizes the process of discovering and selecting the best available AP in a Wi-Fi network, and establishes rapid connectivity for users to seamlessly move between APs.
Users will experience a consistent wireless connection as the APs exchange security keys, so the client device does not need to re-authenticate on the RADIUS server as they roam.


The TQm1402 is a two-radio wireless LAN access point that supports IEEE802.11ac Wave 2, and is ideal for small-medium business networks, providing a very low-cost price and easily deployed wireless solution.
The TQm1402 has a single 2.4GHz radio and a single 5GHz IEEE 802.11ac radios, and supports Multi-User Multiple Input and Multiple Output (MU-MIMO), allowing multiple clients to send and receive data at the same time, substantially increasing throughput. Combined with a comprehensive feature-set, the APs provide superior wireless connectivity.
Smaller businesses can operate the TQm1402 in standalone mode, using its intuitive web-based user interface. For larger installations it can be managed by Allied Telesis Autonomous Wave Control (AWC). With AWC, the wireless network is regularly analyzed, and APs are dynamically updated to reduce interference, minimize coverage gaps, and optimize performance—all with no user intervention. Allied Telesis network management platform, Vista Manager EX, has an AWC wireless management plugin that supports up to 100 APs.
Flexible deployment options enable easy installation, with the TQm1402 able to be used on the desktop or mounted on a wall or ceiling. Power may be supplied by Power over Ethernet, for the simplicity of having the Ethernet network connect and power the APs, or by an optional AC power adapter.
