APC Propeller 5

The APC Propeller 5 is a new generation wireless device designed for client and small scale base-station applications. It has a unique mechanism to do mechanical antenna parameter shifting and achieve the best performance in different operation modes (patent pending).

This product is equipped with a high output power MIMO radio (up to 28 dBm) and 15 dBi dual-polarized antenna which make the device ideal for short to medium range wireless communication.

Dual firmware image will allow safe software upgrades. The device will restart using the prior firmware in the event of an upgrade failure.

The APC Propeller 5 uses an advanced and feature-rich operating system which supports bridge/router and repeater modes (repeater mode allows the product to operate as an access point and as a station at the same time).

Deliberant OS also supports iPoll - proprietary wireless communication technology to increase throughput, packet per second rate and stabilize latency on your network. It has a user-friendly Adobe Flex based GUI with instant reconfiguration without a reboot, includes useful installation tools (site survey, delayed reboot, spectrum analyzer, ping, traceroute) and is compatible with our standalone and cloud based Wireless Network Management System (WNMS) - one of the most advanced management tools on the market.

Mechanical antenna characteristics adjustment

Propeller antenna

The APC Propeller has a unique manual antenna characteristics adjustment, which allows using the device with a horizontal orientation for client mode. This greatly reduces interference, as the main noise source is on the azimuth. Alignment is easy as only left and right movement of the device is necessary (no need to move it upwards or downwards as the antenna angle on the elevation is wide).

Usage recommendation

PTP mode (two APC Propeller 5 devices): 13 km/ 8.08 mi

PTMP mode (APC Propeller 5 as a client device): 8 km/ 4.97 mi

PTMP full capacity mode (APC Propeller as a client device): 1.5 km/ 0.97 mi

Maximum throughput: 160 Mbps

iPoll - proprietary wireless transmission protocol


Deliberant APC series products have an option to use extremely efficient proprietary point-to-multipoint protocol called iPoll™. It eliminates mediated access by polling every subscriber sequentially. The data transmission arbitration is accomplished by the access point. Proprietary iPoll™ protocol enables maximum bandwidth with the lowest possible latency.

WNMS - managing and monitoring your networks on the cloud
All Deliberant APC series devices can be managed and monitored using WNMS (Wireless Network Management System). A single software solution simplifies a large number of tasks for network administrators. WNMS Cloud version is available for those who are not willing to run it on an in-house servers.
New marged brand LigoWave

Deliberant and LigoWave Merge!

LigoWave is excited to announce that Deliberant and LigoWave are merging. Great on their own, even better together. One website combining the PTP & PTMP products, LinkCalc, software tools, and renowned support to make your job easier. The former Deliberant APC product line will be the “APC series” under LigoWave. Take a look and give us your feedback!
