For companies looking for a solution to create a long-range industrial wireless Ethernet network, AvaLAN Wireless has released a new series of new long-range 5.8 GHz wireless Ethernet radios.
The new systems are designed for applications that require higher RF data rates and are aimed at supporting IP-based megapixel surveillance cameras, and can be used to build outdoor line-of-sight and point-to-multipoint wireless Ethernet networks, which will link the cameras — or, for that matter, any other devices that need a robust and secure high-speed connection — together in a seamless manner.
The AvaLAN AW58300 line of products makes use of multiple-in-multiple-out (MIMO) technology and feature industrial 6 dBi gain antennas to deliver wireless data rates up to 300Mbps.
The lineup consists of three products:
The AW58300HTA access point, which is a 5.8GHz wireless Ethernet radio, retails for $999.
The AW58300HTS subscriber unit, which also retails for $999.
The AW58300HTP-PAIR bridge pair unit, which is a 5.8GHz Outdoor 100Mbps wireless Ethernet bridge device, retails for $1,999.
The radios are packaged in rugged and weatherproof die cast aluminum enclosures and are available in both directional and omnidirectional antenna configurations.
"AvaLAN continues to deliver compelling new products to address the growing needs of our customers. Our new 300Mbps technology adds significantly higher throughput capability. This new line of high-speed, industrial wireless Ethernet products have been specifically designed to meet the needs of security integrators and dealers who need a higher-speed wireless solution for IP surveillance video," said Matt Nelson, CEO and president of AvaLAN Wireless.
