AvaLAN Wireless Systems Inc. has announced its new network products that are ideal replacements for modest data-rate installations (rates under 2 Mbps) where 802.11 systems are under-performing or failing completely due to insufficient range or excessive interference. The new AW5802 products support a standard Ethernet interface and operate using a proprietary over-the-air protocol for additional robustness and additional security.
The AW5802 products also let users build line-of-sight, point-to-multipoint wireless Ethernet links that connect “fringe” IP devices, including IP access control readers, remote printers, remote PCs, VoIP phones, point-of-sale devices, digital signage or industrial control devices. There are several products in the series.
For instance, the AW5802xTR radios include a built-in spectrum analyzer and they are IP addressable with web browser based remote configuration and diagnostic tools included. The 5.8 GHz band provides up to 59 channels and less interference than the 2.4 GHz band. AvaLAN has recently added FEC (forward error correction) to provide even more reliability in harsh wireless environments.
Company products offer the ideal combination of price, range, data rate, security, interference avoidance, quality-of-service, and a simple plug and play set up with minimal user programming required. “AvaLAN continues its proven track record of innovation with the introduction of the new AW5802 family of products. These products offer customers an outdoor industrial wireless Ethernet alternative to 900 MHz with more channels and less interference,” said Matt Nelson, Chief Executive Officer of AvaLAN Wireless Systems. The AW5802 Family will be provided in a number of different configurations including the following:
