NETGEAR INC has launched a new wireless outdoor access point to facilitate small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and education institutes, to utilize wi fi access beyond the four walls in open environments.
The new dual band high 802.11n powered NETGEAR WND930 weather-proof outdoor access point allows WiFi access outside. It is an ideal solution for hotels, resorts, schools, healthcare facilities, multi-dwelling apartments, and other organizations needing high-capacity outdoor wireless coverage for parks, playing fields, pool areas, parking lots, and other sites.
The WND930 offers up to 500 mW of RF output power combined with a high gain internal antenna to maximize coverage. The internal directional antenna of the WND930 enables it to operate as a point-to-point mesh link between remote locations or it can operate in access point mode with an external antenna option for 360-degree coverage. It is powered by redundant dual Power over Ethernet (PoE) gigabit ports and also has the capability to directly power other PoE devices such as surveillance cameras. Designed for easy setup, the WND930 comes with wall mounting and pole mounting kit options.
"At NETGEAR , we're pleased to complement our already extensive business solution portfolio with our first outdoor wireless access point as well as our first access point using dual band 802.11ac WiFi, the next-generation in wireless technology," said Subhodeep Bhattacharya, Regional Director, NETGEAR, India & SAARC.
