WALTHAM, Mass. -- Colubris Networks, the leading global provider of intelligent wireless LANs (WLANs) for enterprises and service providers, today announced the industry’s first intelligent enterprise-class 802.11n access point. The Colubris MultiService Access Point 625 (MAP-625) is part of the 802.11n-ready Colubris Intelligent Mobility Solution, which gives organizations the only centrally managed WLAN networking solution to enable migration from legacy standards to 802.11n without disruptive upgrades, architectural changes or additional peripheral equipment. Using dual radios, the MAP-625 provides 802.11n clients with more than four times the performance of current generation WLANs, while simultaneously supporting legacy 802.11a/b/g devices at their full speeds.

IEEE 802.11n, a new WLAN standard expected to be ratified early next year, promises to operate at speeds four to eight times faster than current wireless standards and at double the range of today’s 802.11a/b/g technologies. With the launch of the MAP-625, Colubris becomes the only company to provide smooth and incremental migration to an 802.11n network. The Colubris Intelligent Mobility Solution combines intelligent access points at the network edge – for highly scalable distributed traffic forwarding and full performance – with centralized control and management for consistent services and enterprise-wide mobility. This advanced architecture is already equipped to deliver the next generation WLAN performance levels of 802.11n. Deploying 802.11n is as simple as adding a MAP-625, regardless of whether the customer purchased its network in the past or buys one today.

“By capitalizing on its distributed data forwarding WLAN architecture, Colubris provides its enterprise customers a simple migration path to 802.11n, requiring only the addition of new access points that feature dual radios to support both 802.11n and legacy a/b/g client devices for full coverage without sacrificing n-speeds,” said Michael Brandenburg, Enterprise Network Systems Analyst, Current Analysis.
