Hsinchu, Taiwan- Accton Technology Corporation (TAIEX: 2345, www.accton.com), global outsourcing partner for networking and communications solutions, today announced its newest product, the WA6102 Dual Band Wireless Access Point. Available to partners immediately, the WA6102 is the only 802.11a/g dual band wireless access point that has the security features that make wireless networking practical for Enterprise applications.
Designed to meet the demands of Enterprise applications, the powerful WA6102 is packed with features that give the mobile wireless workforce a secure, standards-based means to access corporate network resources, email, and the Internet. Fully compatible with IEEE 802.11g at 2.4GHz and with 802.11a at 5GHz, it has the flexibility to connect wireless users whether their computers are equipped with 802.11a, b or g wireless adapters.
"Security has been the main barrier to wireless networking in the corporate world," said Jonathan Cheng, Accton's General Manager for U.S. Operations. "We are pleased to be the first to have a product that overcomes that barrier with rock-solid, high-end security features."
With support for WPA (TKIP & AES) over 802.1x, the new Enterprise Access Point provides the highest level of wireless security to prevent intrusions and block entry via rogue Access Points. Strong network management security is provided via SNMPV3, HTTPS (SSL) and VLAN support, which prevents unauthorized management access to the Access Point. Features like dynamic keying and Power over Ethernet (PoE) reduce the overall cost of ownership for the wireless infrastructure, and Quality of Service (QoS) capabilities enable administrators to prioritize network traffic for optimal performance with demanding applications such as voice and video.
The only choice for Enterprise wireless, the economical and secure WA6102 Dual Band Enterprise Access Point is available now to Accton's global outsourcing partners.
