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 that discovers access points on the network and automatically downloads all configuration parameters and firmware, greatly reducing installation, maintenance and troubleshooting costs. The embedded WiNG 5 distributed 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.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
Powered by Motorola’s WiNG 5 distributed architecture, the AP 621 Wireless Access Point offers top 802.11a/b/g/n performance along with direct forwarding, security and QoS services at the edge.
Automatic channel and power optimization
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
Optimizes network availability through its central and pre-emptive intelligence, which dynamically senses weak or failing signals, securely moves user to alternate APs, and boosts signal power to automatically fill RF holes and ensure uninterrupted mobile user access
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
Requires 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. This improves device performance and battery life up to 25% and reduces the overall number of access points required
Full 802.11n performance with standard 802.3af
Simplifies and reduces total cost of installation using standard Power-over-Ethernet (PoE)
Supports both 2.4 GHz and 5.0 GHz frequency bands.
Supports fast secure roaming
Supports Call Admission Control for optimized VoWLAN performance, as well as video streaming and data throughput for 802.11a/b/g/n clients
Load balancing, pre-emptive roaming and rate scaling
Increases reliability and resilience of the wireless network to support mission critical applications.
