High Speed, Reliable and Secure Wireless Connectivity
The 3Com OfficeConnect Wireless 54 Mbps 11g Access Point offers high-speed, reliable, secure IEEE 802.11g wireless networking with speeds of up to 108 Mbps. Compact, streamlined and versatile it ships with a custom cradle for mounting on a desktop or a wall.
Displaying impressive deployment capabilities this access point features four different operating modes. Access point mode enables wireless connectivity between wireless client adapters and the access point and the client mode provides wireless connectivity to a remote access point for a non-Wi-FI equipped PC. Additionally, for more flexibility the point-to-point bridge mode can be used to link two LAN segments connected by two units and the repeater mode to repeat the signals of a remote access point to increase its range.
Enabling wireless roaming in the office this access point facilitates access to internet and network resources with speeds of up to 108Mbps and distances of up to 100 meters (depending on physical conditions, building construction, electrical devices in the area and other environmental factors). Performance-boosting features such as packet bursting and compression increase the effective transmission speed.
Compatibility with 11b and 11g wireless devices helps preserve existing wireless network investment and Wi-Fi certification assures interoperability with similarly certified products. Furthermore, this access point supports Wi-Fi Multi-Media (WMM) and Wireless Distribution System (WDS) and is RoHS- compliant.
With security in mind the access point supports 128-bit WPA/WPA2 with TKIP/AESencryption for maximum security, along with 40-/60- and 128-bit WEP encryption for legacy clients.
Dynamic rate shifting automatically matches the best connection speed in response to physical and traffic conditions so wireless connections stay reliable. Clear Channel Select enables the access point to scan the spectrum and select the least busy channel.
Supporting up to 30 simultaneous users plenty of room is left for growth and easy set up and operation make the 3Com OfficeConnect Wireless 54 Mbps 11g Access Point ideal for first-time wireless users and small offices.
10BASE-T/ 100BASE-TX port for wired connectivity|
Supports up to 30 simultaneous users, allowing plenty of room for growth
IEEE 802.11g standard supports speeds up to 108 Mbps at distances up to 100 meters (328 feet) (depending on physical conditions, building construction, electrical devices in the area and other environmental factors)
Packet bursting increases throughput by sending more frames per a given time period; benefits 11b and 11g wireless clients
Dynamic rate shifting automatically matches the best connection speed in response to changing traffic and environmental conditions
128-bit WPA/WPA2 with TKIP/AES and 40/64 and 128-bit WEP encryption for legacy clients protect the privacy of 11g and 11b wireless transmissions
Wireless Distribution System creates wireless networks by linking several wireless access points with WDS links. This type of set-up alleviates the need to connect the wireless network into a wired LAN. It is ideal for open areas where wiring (or re-wiring) is cost-prohibitive, restricted or physically impossible
Web-browser interface and access point discovery, save and restore feature and simple set up ensure ease of use
Wi-Fi certification helps ensure interoperability with Wi-Fi certified products from other vendors
