Motorola AP 621 Wireless Access Point
Cost-Efficient Single Radio 802.11a/g/n Wireless Access Point
The AP 621 combines the power WiNG 5 intelligence at the edge with the cost-efficiency of a single radio thin wireless access point. When deployed with a wireless controller, the access point offers top 802.11a/b/g/n performance along with direct forwarding, security and QoS services at the edge.
The AP 621 is a thin (dependent) multipurpose access point designed to lower the cost of deploying and operating a secure, reliable 802.11n wireless LAN (WLAN) in branch offices or headquarters facilities. The access point features a MIMO radio, superior receive and transmit sensitivity, and a GigE WAN uplink port. The AP 621 is easily managed remotely by a Motorola RFS 7000 or other wireless controller. The embedded WiNG 5 intelligence ensures that traffic is locally forwarded along the most efficient paths without sacrificing quality of service and security implemented at the access point itself.
Automatic Channel and Power Optimisation
Common problems such as building attenuation, electronic interference or sub-optimal access point placement are minimalized as the SMART RF feature of the switch/ controller automatically optimizes power and channel selection so each user gets always-on high-quality access and mobility.
The AP 621 is designed to optimize network availability through its central and pre-emptive intelligence which dynamically senses weak or failing signals, securely moves mobile users to alternate APs, and boosts signal power to automatically fill RF holes and ensure uninterrupted mobile user access.
Security includes layer 2-7 stateful packet filtering firewall, AAA RADIUS services, Wireless IPS-lite,VPN gateway, and location-based access control.
Fast and Easy Deployment
The access ports require no configuration or manual firmware maintenance. The Motorola wireless controller discovers access points 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.
Device and Network Acceleration
Device and network performance can be accelerated through a virtual LAN feature via the switch/controller. Each AP 621 access point can be virtualized into four unique VLANs which can be customized to direct broadcast traffic to the intended recipient. This reduces overall network traffic while improving device performance and battery life up — to 25%. This also reduces the overall number of access points required to provide unique device services.
