A42: Wave 2 Cloud-managed WiFi
The A42 is a 2x2 universal 802.11ac Wave 2 cloud-managed WiFi access point with simultaneous 2.4GHz and 5GHz radios and MU-MIMO. The A42 includes hardware watchdog, two Gigabit Ethernet ports and a USB port. The A42 can be powered by standard 802.3af PoE or passive 18-24V PoE.
Water and dust resistant, the A Series can be set on a desktop, mounted to an ethernet wall plate (EU, UK, US), installed on a wall or T-rail ceiling or fastened to an outdoor wall or pole. A universal installation kit is included for deployments almost anywhere.
The A42 is cloud managed and includes a free license for CloudTrax, Open Mesh’s cloud-based network controller. Deploy access points in minutes and build, manage and monitor your network from anywhere.
The A42 is available in a 2x2, 300+867 Mbps MU-MIMO configuration for strong performance, especially in dense environments.
The A Series was carefully designed to be installed almost anywhere. Mount the A Series indoors or out with the included universal installation kit.
Includes a license for CloudTrax, Open Mesh’s cloud-based network controller. No on-site server or controller required.
With device fingerprinting, you'll know who is on your network in terms of device operating system, name, bandwidth used and more.
Mesh technology enables access points to work together to form a self-organizing, self-healing wireless network.

The A Series is PoE only and can be powered with standard 802.3af PoE or passive 18-24V PoE. Bundle with a PoE injector or S Series switch.
Multiple SSIDs allow you to broadcast up to four unique networks, some “public” and some “private.”
Custom-branded splash pages automatically scale to fit any device, or use Facebook Wi-Fi to let users check-in to your page before using the web for free.
Automated outage alerts by email if any access point goes down and doesn’t come back up within an hour.
Authenticate users with WPA2 or WPA-Enterprise security; charge for access, use vouchers and connect to your hotel PMS system1.
Set upload and download caps on each user and block individual abusive devices to ensure there is enough bandwidth available for everyone.
Built-in firewall prevents users on the public network from seeing each other or your wired network by default.
Build, manage and monitor your networks from anywhere with free iOS and Android applications.
- The A Series is PoE only and does not include a power supply. The A42 can be powered with standard 802.3af PoE or passive 18-24V PoE. Bundle with a PoE injector or S Series switch.
- A Series access points are backwards compatible with OM2P and most later OM Series devices (requires firmware upgrade) and MR600 and later MR Series devices, so you can run them on the same network. The A Series will not mesh with OM5P, but can run on the same network.
