LAS VEGAS -- Extricom, the designer and manufacturer of the award-winningInterference-Free(TM) Wireless LAN System, today announced anothersignificant milestone in the evolution of WLAN with the unveiling of theEXRP-40, the industry's first four-radio access point. The EXRP-40UltraThin(TM) Access Point brings unmatched new WLAN system capabilities tocustomers, including a quadrupling of capacity, predictable Quality ofService, and the flexibility to fully leverage all channels in both Wi-Fiunlicensed bands of operation.

The EXRP-40 UltraThin(TM) Access Point contains four IEEE 802.11 a/b/gradios which, thanks to Extricom's unique channel blanket architecture, canoperate on any combination of four non-overlapping channels in any band, inany Wi-Fi mode (a/b/g). This generates compelling advantages, including:

  • Unmatched Flexibility: By having multiple channel blankets covering anenterprise's service area, IT has the ability to allocate physical channelsand bandwidth to specific applications (e.g. voice or data), user groups(e.g. employees or guests), and device types.

  • Multiplied Capacity: With four channels available at every location,local capacity and bandwidth is quadrupled, relative to all other WLANsolutions.

  • Dedicated Security Monitoring: The 4-radio AP provides the option ofusing 3 radios for traffic (e.g. channels 1, 6, and 11 in 2.4 GHz) while thefourth radio is used as a dedicated rogue AP and Wireless IntrusionDetectionSensor. This gives the benefits of a 100% dedicated security sensor array,without the cost of a separate physical overlay of sensors.

"The trend for mobility and multi-application convergence, includingvoice and locationing, is clear," said Rachna Ahlawat, research director,enterprise networking, for Gartner. "And as enterprises come to rely moreandmore on WLAN, they will seek robust and reliable connectivity."
