- Advantech Introduces an 802.11n Wireless Access Point for High-Speed Transmissions
- The Industrial Automation Group of Advantech introduces the EKI-6311GN, an IEEE 802.11n industrial wireless access point. The EKI-6311GN delivers three times the throughput rates of a normal 802.11g. It is fully backward compatible with legacy 802.11b/g frequencies. With the support of STP, WMM, and IGMP snooping protocols, the EKI-6311GN effectively improves the reliability of wireless connectivity. The EKI-6311GN can achieve data rates up to 150Mbps, which allows high-speed internet access with various data and network video surveillance transmissions. It provides 600mW high output power for long-range deployment up to 5km. Also, a Power over Ethernet injector enables a unified supply of data and power through a standard Ethernet cable. To maximize wireless network security and privacy, the EKI-6311GN incorporates 64/128/152-bit WEP data encryption, WPA, WPA2, 802.1x, which can filter external user and prevent illegal attacking. Some other EKI-6311GN features include, embedded 8dBi directional antenna with external N-type connector, wide operating temperature range (-20 ~ 70?C), and IP55 waterproof certification.
