The APC ECHO 5 is a device made for cost-effective and long distance connectivity (up to 50 km). One main advantage of this new model is the unique mounting system designed to utilize standard satellite offset dish antennas to provide increased system gain and distance. These antennas are readily obtainable in most countries thereby reducing freight and inventory costs. The aluminum housing improves RF performance, allowing solid communications in interference laden environments as well as providing strength against the elements.

APC ECHO 5 is a universal device that can be used in a two different ways: with a 60 cm offset dish antenna provided by Deliberant or with a 3rd party offset dish antenna.

The product is equipped with a high output power MIMO radio (up to 28dBm) and when coupled to Deliberant’s 27 dBi dual polarized, 60 cm, offset satellite dish antenna it is ideal for long range wireless communication.

Equipped with Deliberant’s dual firmware image feature, remote software upgrades are assured even if a power failure interrupts the process. The device will restart using the prior firmware in the event of an upgrade failure.

The APC ECHO 5 uses an advanced and feature-rich operating system that supports network bridge/ router and wireless 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 Deliberant’s iPoll; a proprietary wireless communication technology that increases throughput, packet per second rate, and stabilizes 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 stand-alone and cloud based Wireless Network Management System (WNMS) - one of the most advanced management tools on the market.

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!
