Pakedge Device & Software wants to widens the capabilities of a wired/wireless network and enable reliable connectivity in situations where cables cannot be installed.
The company’s WAP-W3G Ultra-High-Power Wireless Access Point features ultra-high-power 802b/g radio configuration on a 2.4GHz frequency band that provides a wireless operating range up to three times that of consumer products.
The unit supports VLANs (virtual local area networks) and multiple SSIDs. This enables a user to segment a wireless network for different devices (computers, AV system touchpanels, and gaming systems) to provide the most efficient operation for all the connected devices.
“As today’s multiroom audio/video systems and home networks become more complex, the need for seamless integration has never been greater,” stated Victor Pak, president and CEO of Pakedge. “Our WAP-W3G is a versatile installation product that helps to make connecting even the most complicated systems easier, while providing a wide range of useful capabilities.”
The WAP-W3G can be configured to operate in Wireless Access Point (WAP), Wireless Bridge, or Wireless Repeater (WDS) mode. It offers adjustable power output and range, and is optimized for use with AV system touchpanels and control devices.
Just a single Cat-5e cable provides power and network connectivity. It is fully 802.3af-compliant, and can be powered by any PoE-compliant switch. The unit’s dual antennas ensure the best-possible reception and transmission.
The WAP-W3G can be used worldwide, thanks to its software-enabled country and power output configurability. It supports a wide variety of security standards including WPA, WPA2, AES, TKIP, WEP, RADIUS, MAC filtering, and SSID Hide.
The Pakedge WAP-W3G Ultra-High-Power Wireless Access Point is currently available and comes with dual 5dBi omnidirectional antennas, a power supply, Quick Start Guide, and Cat-5e cable.
