NETGEAR (NASDAQ:NTGR) has released its new feature-rich dual-band wireless solution designed for small and midsize businesses. ProSafe 802.11n Dual Band Wireless Access Point (WNDAP330) offers enhanced speed, coverage benefits and supports existing legacy devices.
The new product leverages Power-over-Ethernet support to eliminate power cables and simplify installation, and is ideal for deployment over large areas with support for point-to-point and point-to-multipoint bridging. It secures the wireless network with Wi-Fi protection access, rogue access point detection, and RADIUS (remote authentication dial-in user service) support.
"The promised benefits of Wireless-N networks are not being realized in many companies due to the existence of 11b and 11g clients in the network," Peter Newton, NETGEAR director of product marketing for SMB security and wireless products, said in a statement. "To achieve full Wireless-N performance, companies are moving APs and clients to the un-congested 5GHz band where there are fewer legacy devices."
