Open-Mesh A42 overview

  • 1Description

With the A42 Dual-Band Enterprise Wi-Fi Access Point from Open-Mesh, the possibilities are virtually endless. You can utilize just a single access point to provide wireless network access to a small office or conference room or add additional access points to meet the demands of more users while covering a larger space.

Setup is simple, thanks to zero-config plug-and-play networking allowing you to get your network off the ground quickly. The A42 comes equipped with two Gigabit Ethernet ports and a single USB 2.0 port plus LED status indicators so you can see the status of your network. Once plugged in, the A42 features easy scalability thanks to Open-Mesh CloudTrax software which virtually eliminates the hassle involved in configuring your network. You can also access your network while on the go with the CloudTrax app available for both iOS and Android devices. If you're concerned with keeping tabs on your network but don't want to constantly monitor its status, automated alerts notify you via email if an access point goes down and doesn't come up within an hour.

  • Zero config, plug-and-play networking
  • One USB port and 2 gigabit Ethernet ports
  • LED status indicator
  • Self-forming, self-healing mesh
  • Free cloud-based dashboard for complete management
  • Free iOS and Android apps
  • Hardware watchdog auto-restarts after power spikes and outages
  • Single point of configuration for one access point or thousands
  • Automatic reporting and alerts
  • Usage statistics and control with client device fingerprinting
  • Full captive portal / voucher system
  • Free iOS and Android apps
  • Zero cost license
  • Full CloudTrax API (additional cost)
Simplified Deployments
Simplify deployments with zero config, plug-and-play networking, automatic channel configuration, and automatic meshing to extend Wi-Fi signals to dead spots. With flexible mounting options, the same AP can be installed indoors and out: on ceilings, walls, Ethernet jacks, and more, making deployment planning easy.
Intuitive Management
Open Mesh is powerful enough for pros, but easy enough for almost anyone. With free, centralized cloud management, view and manage all your networks across large sites and multiple locations from a single dashboard. Create splash pages, manage bandwidth, reboot devices, block clients, and more in just a few clicks.
Serious Reliability
From automatic failover and safe over-the-air upgrades, to a hardware watchdog chip and out-of-band management, this solution is built to reduce truck rolls, so you can deploy with confidence. And with automated email alerts and scheduled maintenance windows you control, you can avoid disruption during critical times.
Custom Brandable
Open Mesh is ideal for MSPs, resellers, and IT consultants because it is easy to add your logo to this solution. The A Series includes a blank center tab you can swap in molded with your own logo, or with a sticker added for custom branding. Even CloudTrax can be branded as your own cloud solution.
Easy Scalability
Whether you're managing one site or thousands, CloudTrax is built to grow with you. Because there's nothing to configure on site, adding new access points and network locations takes just seconds. Create new networks by cloning existing ones and provision new access points in just a click. CloudTrax makes it easy to get all of your networks behind a single pane of glass.
Mobile Apps
CloudTrax includes free iOS and Android apps, so you can build, manage, and monitor your networks while on the go. Create new networks in seconds, add new APs by simply scanning them, and swap old APs with new with zero typing or configuration. You have access to the full functionality at and can switch between mobile and desktop seamlessly.
Multiple SSIDs
CloudTrax can broadcast multiple unique networks, some public and others private. Public networks can be customized with powerful captive portal features, while private networks work seamlessly as an extension of your LAN. Each network can be uniquely named, left visible or hidden, and left open or password-protected with WPA2 encryption.
Automated Alerts
Don't have time to check the network status every day? Don't worry. If any access point goes down and doesn't come back up within an hour, CloudTrax will automatically email you (and anyone else you designate). Outage alerts are easy to turn on and off, always keeping you in-the-know when it comes to the health of your wireless network.

    Open-Mesh A42 reviews

    A42 Dual-Band Enterprise Wi-Fi Access Point is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Steady connection With a62 and the a42 both levels of my house has wireless connection. I was not too sure about the a42 performance since I already have the a62 which is a tri-band and works great. But boy I couldn't be so wrong. The a42 is also a great performer. I have just been using Open Mesh product for about 3 months and they haven't disappointed.
