Dragons Range Will Deploy Meru Networks 802.11ac Wi-Fi at Clubhouse to Deliver Uninterrupted Internet Access to Tenants
(Las Vegas, 6th May, 2013) The demands on network bandwidth are dramatically increasing, and Motorola Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: MSI) is meeting those needs with a suite of new indoor- and outdoor-rated 802.11ac access points (APs). Delivering faster speeds, these APs help alleviate bandwidth challenges faced by both enterprises and governments when users connect to Wi-Fi networks and access high-bandwidth applications such as mobile video and streaming media applications.
The complete suite includes the AP 8232, AP 8222 and AP 8263, offering flexible options for a wide variety of deployment scenarios. The APs also enable integrated location and security sensing for mobile commerce applications to help connect shoppers in retail stores and hotel guests both indoors and outdoors. For government workers, these can provide data-rich content and multimedia sharing across the government enterprise with high-speed 802.11ac. These APs are also backward compatible with previous 802.11 standards and will support existing clients, preventing the need to create a new infrastructure.
In addition, a new software upgrade to the award-winning WiNG 5 technology delivers mobile applications faster with video acceleration to improve mobile video streaming experience by eliminating legacy WAN bandwidth limitations.
Imran Akbar, vice president and general manager, Enterprise Networks & Communications, Motorola Solutions
“The demands on network bandwidth are on the rise, and our end-to-end solution for the 802.11ac standard, including new APs and WiNG 5.5 upgrade, increase capacity in the Wi-Fi network for both enterprise and government. In addition, the application acceleration engine with content caching helps accelerate application performance without requiring significant increases in WAN bandwidth.”
Craig Mathias, principal, Farpoint Group
“It’s now very clear that 802.11ac is the next-generation enterprise and government WLAN technology. And with this announcement, Motorola Solutions is adding system features that are well-served by the enhanced capacity of 802.11ac. Demanding retail and public safety environments, for example, are about to see a big upgrade in capability.”
