To include AP650 access point and RFS4000 integrated service controller
The Enterprise Mobility Solutions business unit of Motorola has made two additions to its enterprise-class 802.11n wireless LAN Smart Branch portfolio, the dual-radio AP650 802.11n access point and the RFS4000 802.11n integrated services controller with an optional integrated dual-radio 802.11n access point (AP).
The company said that the AP650 802.11n Thin Access Point is a thin multi-purpose access point that offers a 2 x 3 MIMO with 24 dBm radios. The AP650 is controller-managed and offers all Motorola Wireless operating system features, including Smart RF, security and plug-and-play (zero-touch) installation.
AP650’s multi-purpose capability allows IT departments to enable one radio for networking and another for sensing, so any dual-radio AP650 can support simultaneous access and services, including Motorola AirDefense intrusion prevention, advanced troubleshooting or vulnerability assessment..
The company claims that the AP650 offers 100% performance using standard Power-over-Ethernet (PoE), eliminating the need for costly infrastructure upgrades.
The RFS4000 802.11n integrated services controller integrates wired, wireless and security networking features into a compact form factor, enabling organisations to create survivable branch networks using a single platform.
The RFS4000 is also available with an integrated dual-radio 802.11n access point, which features 3 x 3 MIMO with 27.7 dBm dual-band 802.11n radios. The wireless services controller also allows multi-purpose capability, so it can support simultaneous access and services.
In addition, a distributed enterprise with RFS4000 services controllers in multiple branch offices can leverage Motorola’s RF Management System (RFMS) to enable central management, monitoring and policy compliance across the entire network.
Beyond offering wired and wireless networking and security services, the RFS4000 also delivers application services, including voice-over-WLAN (VoWLAN), video conferencing and video surveillance, locationing (Wi-Fi and RFID) and 3G backhaul via an express card slot.
Darryl Morin, president and CEO of Advanced Wireless, said: Motorola is right-sizing the cost of 802.11n wireless LANs, so customers can deploy an enterprise-class access point for less than $500 each without sacrificing performance, reliability or security features.
“What really sets the Smart branch apart is the ability to run troubleshooting, spectrum analysis and even intrusion prevention from any AP in the network so IT can dramatically improve user support, network visibility and security.
