The Open-Mesh OM5P-AC is a cloud managed, dual band, 1.17Gbps (300+867 Mbps) access point that makes it easy to deploy professional, robust wireless networks anywhere.

With the ability to support up to 20-50 simultaneous users, this access point is ideal in dense environments with a large number of access points, such as hotel rooms, apartment complexes, dorm rooms, care facilities, restaurants, retail stores and offices. Pair this access point in an OM Series Ceiling enclosure for elegant in-room orceiling installations close to network users. With dual radios,, the OM5P-AC supports higher speeds available to the 5Ghz 802.11ac spectrum along with support for legacy devices that are only 2.4Ghz capable

The OM5P-AC features both standard 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE). so you can run it off a PoE switch, and passive 24V PoE, so you can use our PoE injectors. It's also compatible with the 24v universal power supply.


The OM5P-AC performs best as a wired accesspoint. .It performs well as a mesh repeater when paired with a high-power gateway such as the MR1750. We do not recommend using this model as a mesh gateway.

"802.11ac-Ready" at launch The OM5P-AC is our 802.11ac replacement for the OM5P-AN.  Future firmware updates will be able to unlock its performance potential with no hardware upgrades required. The OM5P-AC allows you to future-proof your networks with ac hardware, with no increase in price over the 802.11n version.



Dual Band 802.11ac

Deploy concurrent 2.4GHz + 5GHz ac-ready networks to let newer phones, tablets and laptops fly while still supporting legacy devices.

High performance

The OM5P-AC is available in a 2x2, 1.17Gbps Mbps MIMO configuration for exceptional speed over short distances in dense environments.


Compatible with Open Mesh's line of modularenclosures for easy installations.


Includes a license for CloudTrax, Open-Mesh’s cloud-based network controller. No on-site server required.

User insight

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.

White label

White label for systems integrators, resellers and IT consultants. No logos or links on boxes or access points.

802.3af PoE

Support for 802.3af PoE and 12-24v passive PoE to power you accesspoints up to 300 feet away over a single ethernet cable.

Multiple SSIDs

Multiple SSIDs allow you to broadcast up to four unique networks, some “public” and some “private.”

Your brand

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.

Outage alerts

Automated outage alerts by email if any access point goes down and doesn’t come back up within an hour.

Custom authentication

Authenticate users with WPA2 or WPA-Enterprise security; charge for access, use vouchers and connect to your hotel PMS system*.

Bandwidth management

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.

Mobile apps

Build, manage and monitor your networks from anywhere with free iOS and Android applications.


* PMS integration is a partner service.2 Will not mesh with OM5P, but can run on the same network.


  • The OM5P-AC is backwards compatible with OM2P and later OM and MR Series devices (requires firmware upgrade), so you can run them on the same network (they'll even mesh). The device will not mesh with the original OM5P.
  • To comply with new FCC regulations, this devices does not allow non-Open Mesh firmware or SSH access. It also requires a new approval process for files.
  • For projects requiring more range, users or speed, try the MR1750.
