When business depends on the free flow of wireless data throughout an organization, ensuring physical security and compliance with industry guidelines become key factors in network design.


State College, PA – June 9, 2015

Physical security of wireless access points is required by industry standards in fields such as retail, government, and healthcare.  Guidelines requiring such physical security can be found in such diverse documents as the National Electric Code (NEC), Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS), Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS), Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA), and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).  Whether the goal is to prevent removal of equipment which accesses private data, or preventing ceiling gaps through which infection may be spread, the way in which access points are protected has become and important component of network design best practices.

Oberon’s Model 1077-CCOAP is a locking 2’ x 2’ wireless LAN AP mounting solution. The ceiling tile insert secures a Cisco AP via a bracket in the door, locking it in place when the door is closed. Once installed, this ceiling enclosure permits controlled access to components without lifting ceiling tiles.   The enclosure ensures the equipment is properly secured while offering a clean, professional aesthetic and simplifying future maintenance.

The Model 1077 series offers a variety of interchangeable retrofit doors to permit easy vendor and technology migrations.   The steel enclosure fits into a standard suspended ceiling grid.
