Includes ADEPT antenna system and offers data speeds of up to 300Mbps
The Enterprise Mobility Solutions business of Motorola has unveiled AP 7181 access point, a 802.11n outdoor mesh wide area network (MWAN) system, which offers data speeds of up to 300Mbps and features the company’s ADvanced Element Panel Technology (ADEPT) antenna system. It provides municipalities and enterprise customers with a wireless network that supports their current and future data, video and voice needs.
According to the Motorola, the AP 7181 outdoor mesh access points provide more network capacity, enable more applications and support more users than 802.11a/b/g mesh offerings. Its ADEPT antenna system enables the AP 7181 to achieve maximum performance by communicating two simultaneous data streams in the same channel and avoiding the self-shadowing of typical multi-antenna solutions.
The company claims that it has overcome the limitations of multiple antenna sticks in a typical 802.11n access point, with antennas integrated into an aesthetic enclosure in the new offering. Network availability and reliability is further strengthened with 802.11n radios specifically designed to maintain full power at high data rates, ensuring client connections and superior mesh throughput throughout a coverage area.
The AP 7181 access point offers mobile data connections throughout a network by leveraging MeshConnex routing technology to enable efficient routing, low hop latency, low routing overhead and high-speed handoffs, the company said.
The company said that the 802.11n mesh wide area network can be accurately monitored, managed and optimised using the Motorola Wireless Manager. Offering network administrators a visualisation of their entire outdoor and indoor wireless network through a Google Map view, the new offering allows users to manage the complexities of a multi-layer wireless network by showing performance metrics, network relationships and locations of all wireless elements.
Scott French, MSSI vice president and senior sales director for emerging technologies and solutions at Motorola Enterprise Mobility Solutions, said: Working with municipal and enterprise customers across the globe, Motorola has a long history of delivering innovative solutions that enable them to leverage mobility applications to help streamline operations, increase worker safety and improve productivity.
