Motorola unveils new architecture for 802.11n WLAN

Cost-effective mobile voice, video and data services

By CBR Staff Writer

Motorola has unveiled WiNG 5 WLAN, the new architecture for its portfolio of 802.11n wireless LAN (WLAN) access points and controllers, which is designed to help IT departments provide mobile voice, video and data services cost effectively.

The company said that its new WLAN architecture offers cost-effective way to support voice, video and data applications by enabling access points (AP) to enforce security policies, provide quality of service (QoS) and mobility, and intelligently forward traffic directly along optimal paths to avoid controller bottlenecks.

The new offering requires less wireless controllers, featuring APs that cover more area and have built-in sensors for a Wireless Intrusion Protection System (WIPS) or network assurance.

It is available on the RFS 4000 integrated wireless services controller and the AP 650 access point, with phased introduction on the RFS 6000 and RFS 7000 wireless controllers and the AP 6511, AP 7131 and AP 7181 access points expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2011.
