Detailed description

The MikroTik NetMetal Series

The MikroTik NetMetal series, encompassing models like the NetMetal 5 and NetMetal ac2, represents a versatile and robust suite of outdoor wireless solutions designed to excel as Access Points (AP), Backbone links, or Customer Premises Equipment (CPE). Each model is equipped with features that support a wide range of applications and network configurations, tailored to meet the demands of complex and dynamic network environments. As Access Points, the NetMetal series is ideal for providing high-capacity wireless coverage. Equipped with powerful radios and dual-band capabilities, these devices can serve high-density areas with reduced interference and optimal bandwidth distribution. This makes them perfect for deploying in busy urban settings or large public venues where reliable, high-speed wireless access is crucial.
In Backbone configurations, the NetMetal series shines by establishing robust point-to-point connections necessary for linking different network segments or extending the network across geographical barriers. With high-output power radios and options for gigabit Ethernet and fiber optic connectivity via SFP ports, these devices ensure high-speed, stable, and reliable data transmission over long distances. This capability is essential in scenarios requiring the integration of remote areas into a central network system or creating high-capacity links between data centers. As CPE, the NetMetal series provides reliable, high-performance connectivity to end-users. This setup is especially valuable in areas where traditional wired broadband is unavailable or unreliable. The flexibility to incorporate 3G/4G LTE modules via the miniPCIe slot allows for seamless internet access, ensuring continuous connectivity. Furthermore, the robust, weather-resistant design of the NetMetal series guarantees long-lasting operation under adverse environmental conditions, making these devices ideal for installation at customer premises in rural or challenging urban environments. With their rugged enclosures, extensive connectivity options, and advanced wireless technologies, the NetMetal 5 and NetMetal ac2 are equipped to handle a variety of roles across different networking scenarios. Whether deployed as high-performance access points, critical backbone links, or reliable CPE, the NetMetal series is built to provide durable, efficient, and scalable solutions, ensuring that networks remain future-proof and adaptable to evolving technological and operational needs.

Advanced Performance for Demanding Networks

The MikroTik NetMetal ac2 represents a significant advancement in the NetMetal series, integrating cutting-edge features and augmented power to proficiently tackle demanding network environments. Powered by a 4-core IPQ-4019 CPU from Qualcomm's Internet Processor QCA IPQ40xx family, clocked at 716 MHz, the NetMetal ac2 is optimally designed for high throughput and multi-tasking in network and IoT applications. Its 256 MB of RAM ensures effective management of the system's operating system and robust handling of data traffic, which is crucial for maintaining routing tables and managing multiple concurrent connections.
This device excels in environments that require reliable backhaul connectivity, linking remote edge networks to central data centers. With its substantial processing capability and memory, the NetMetal ac2 is especially suitable for high-speed, high-reliability backhaul applications in wireless mesh networks, facilitating efficient data transport across extensive networks. Furthermore, the inclusion of IPsec hardware acceleration is a standout feature, enabling the device to handle IPsec VPN encryption and decryption directly through hardware. This capability significantly enhances the processing speed of secure communications, reduces CPU load, and improves overall network efficiency and throughput. This makes the MikroTik NetMetal ac2 an excellent choice for network scenarios where security is paramount, providing fast, secure, and reliable connections. With these specifications, the NetMetal ac2 is poised to deliver exceptional performance in both small to medium-sized network environments and complex, security-focused enterprise settings.

Dual-Band Flexibility & High-Speed Connectivity

The NetMetal ac2 supports dual-concurrent band operation, seamlessly integrating both 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies to optimize network efficiency and capacity. This device can simultaneously handle the 2.4GHz band—ideal for better coverage and penetration through obstacles—with a speed of 300 Mbps, and the less congested 5GHz band with a faster 867 Mbps rate, suited for high-density environments where higher throughput and reduced interference are crucial. This duality not only ensures broad compatibility with diverse Wi-Fi-enabled devices but also facilitates effective load balancing, thereby enhancing overall network performance and reducing bandwidth bottlenecks.
Moreover, the NetMetal ac2's networking capability is further amplified by the inclusion of a 1G SFP port for fiber connections. This feature extends high-speed, reliable wired connectivity over longer distances, which is essential for scenarios requiring robust backhaul links or high-speed uplink connections to core network infrastructures. The fiber connectivity through the SFP port also provides the flexibility to adapt to various deployment needs, whether extending network reach or integrating into existing fiber infrastructure.

Customizable & Environment-Resistant Design

Designed to thrive in the rigorous conditions of outdoor networking, the NetMetal ac2 features an IP66-rated enclosure that offers exceptional protection. This rating confirms the enclosure is dust-tight and impermeable to high-pressure water jets from any direction, safeguarding the device against rain, snow, windblown dust, and other environmental challenges. Such robust protection ensures that the internal components remain secure and operational, even in harsh weather conditions. Despite its rugged exterior, the NetMetal ac2 maintains user-friendly accessibility. The enclosure is engineered to be easily opened and closed with one hand, enhancing maintenance efficiency without compromising the safety or integrity of the internal electronics.
Additionally, the inclusion of two RP-SMA connectors on the NetMetal ac2 facilitates flexible antenna connectivity. These connectors, featuring a reverse polarity setup to comply with regulatory standards, are crucial for ensuring reliable and efficient signal transmission. This design allows for a variety of antenna types to be connected, accommodating different range and coverage needs and making the device adaptable to diverse deployment scenarios. The RP-SMA connectors are vital for maintaining the performance and extended range of the wireless network, making the NetMetal ac2 a versatile choice for any outdoor networking setup.

Adaptable, Efficient & Future-Ready

The miniPCIe slot in the NetMetal ac2 significantly enhances its adaptability, supporting LTE or other wireless modules to extend its utility across diverse network setups. This adaptability makes the NetMetal ac2 an invaluable component in various applications, from extending connectivity in rural areas to bolstering urban network infrastructures. The miniPCIe slot, a compact version of the standard PCI Express interface, allows for the addition of specialized hardware modules such as LTE modules for high-speed internet access over cellular networks, and other RF technologies like advanced Wi-Fi cards and Bluetooth modules. This capability is particularly useful in remote or mobile environments where traditional broadband connectivity might be unavailable and for dynamic wireless communications in industrial or IoT applications.
While designed for high performance, the NetMetal ac2 also considers energy efficiency with a maximum power consumption of 28W. This balance of power and efficiency, combined with the robust design and versatile networking features, positions the NetMetal ac2 as a future-ready solution. It caters to expanding wireless networks by providing flexibility in upgrading wireless capabilities or adding new functionalities without replacing the entire device, thus making it a space-efficient choice for both portable routers and fixed network installations.
