Plug-N-Play 802.11a/b/g Access Ports:
Securely Mobilizing the Wireless Enterprise
More Functionality for a Fraction of the Cost of Access Points
Access ports are a key component of Motorola’s award winning wireless switch system, the wireless LAN architecture that does more, yet costs less. Working in conjunction with Motorola’s wireless switches, the AP300 Access Port (AP) delivers robust and feature rich IEEE 802.11a/b/g connectivity. It can also be used as a sensor in conjunction with Motorola’s Wireless Intrusion Protection System (IPS). The AP300 can be adopted as either a Layer 2 or Layer 3 AP, supporting Layer 3 Mobility — substantially reducing the cost of deploying, implementing and managing a wireless LAN while significantly increasing features, functionality and the security of the wireless LAN infrastructure.
Virtual AP Enables True Wireless VLANs for Better Device and Network Performance
With Virtual AP, each access port can support four separate wireless broadcast domains — functionality that would otherwise require the installation of four first-generation access points. These true wireless VLANs enable separation of mobile end-users, ensuring that broadcast traffic reaches only those recipients for whom it is intended. Overall network traffic is reduced, network and device performance is improved, and device battery life is increased — at a fraction of the cost required to deliver the same functionality in a first generation access point-based network. Each AP300 supports four BSSIDs (Basic Service Set Identifiers) and 16 ESSIDs (Extended Service Set Identifiers) per radio, enabling granular segmentation of the wireless LAN into multiple broadcast domains to meet specific enterprise needs. Typical access points support only one BSSID, utilizing ESSIDs (instead of BSSIDs) to create wireless VLANs.
Dual-Radio 802.11a and 802.11g Design
Simultaneous service to 802.11a, 802.11b and 802.11g mobile devices provides high-bandwidth wireless connectivity at speeds of up to 54 Mbps in both the 2.4 GHz and 5.2 GHz ISM bands.
Thin AP Design
The AP300 requires no configuration or manual firmware maintenance. The Motorola wireless switch discovers access ports on the network and automatically downloads all configuration parameters and firmware, greatly reducing installation, maintenance and troubleshooting costs for Layer 2 and Layer 3 deployments.
Supports Mobility at Layer 2 and Layer 3, working in conjunction with Motorola’s enterprise wireless LAN switches
This unique dual-function device can execute and enforce the IDS/IPS security policies configured in the Motorola wireless switch, and can also be utilized as a 24x7 dedicated sensor with Wireless IPS from Air Defense
Load balancing, Pre-Emptive Roaming and Rate Scaling:
Increases reliability and resilience of the wireless network to support mission critical applications
Allows authentication to a RADIUS server to enable an 802.1x-protected Ethernet port
Support for IEEE standards-based security protocols for strong Encryption (AES, TKIP), Authentication and Key Management (802.1x-EAP)
Enables worldwide operation through support for standards-based dynamic frequency selection and power control
Simplifies and reduces total cost of installation through support of standards-based Power-over-Ethernet (PoE)
Plenum-rated external antenna model with metal housing is ideal for installation above ceiling tiles; the plastic internal-antenna housing allows for installation within the “carpeted-space” and provides cost-effective coverage via the integrated 2.4 GHz and 5.2 GHz antennas
Flexible Mounting Options:
Fast and easy installation with wall, ceiling and above-ceiling tile mounting options; internal antenna version snaps on to T-bars of suspended ceilings without the use of any hardware; external antenna version installs above ceiling tiles
