Oberon Logo5 Model 1046-CCOAP
Locking Suspended Ceiling Tile Wi-Fi Access Point Enclosure with 12.5 x 12.5 x 3 in. Back Box / Cisco 2600, 2700, 3500, 3600, & 3700 Series AP Door
Category: Wi-Tile

Economical, locking 2 x 2 ft. suspended ceiling Wi-Tile ™ enclosure mounts and secures Wi-Fi and Small Cell APs flush to the ceiling. This steel enclosure replaces a standard ceiling tile, and has a durable white textured powder coat to aesthetically match most ceiling tiles. The interchangeable door simplifies AP and antenna moves, adds, and changes without lifting ceiling tiles. Styles available for both standard flush grid and recessed grid ceilings (-T), and for both North American and European (metric) ceiling systems.

Patent Pending
Note: The model 1046 is designed to accommodate current generation APs from leading vendors. As wireless standards evolve, APs are getting larger to accommodate more internal antennas. Oberon has designed the Model 1047 with a larger door to accommodate future generation larger APs. Oberon recommends the Model 1047 for new installations, if future migration to larger APs is likely.
