AvaLAN Wireless Systems Inc., a producer of long range wireless products, unveils a set of 5.8 GHz long range wireless Ethernet solutions that enables users to build line-of-sight, point-to-multipoint wireless connections that link “fringe” Internet protocol (IP) devices.
The type of fringe IP devices that would be linked using AvaLAN’s long range wireless solutions include video surveillance cameras or other devices needing robust and secure high data rates, the company says.
Utilizing custom AvaLAN Wireless firmware and multiple-in-multiple-out (MIMO) technology, AvaLAN's new AW58100 series delivers radio frequency data rates up to 100 megabits per second (Mbps). The subscriber unit directional flat panel antenna is a special dual-polarized version designed specifically for multiple spatial streams. The omni-directional access-point and mesh units provide two outdoor industrial 6 decibel intensity (dBi) gain antennas.
The dual-polarized flat panel antenna radios are also available as a pre-configured, matched, “pair bridge” (AW58100HTP-PAIR) for point-to-point fixed connections. Those new long range 5.8 GHz wireless Ethernet solutions are designed for applications that require higher RF data rates up to 100 Mbps and are ideally positioned to support IP-based megapixel surveillance cameras. The radios are packaged in rugged and weatherproof die cast aluminum enclosures and are available in both directional and omni-directional antenna configurations.
AvaLAN’s new mesh technology adds redundancy and distance capability, said Matt Nelson, AvaLAN’s CEO and president. “This new line of high speed, industrial wireless Ethernet products has been specifically designed to meet the needs of security integrators and dealers who need a higher speed wireless solution for IP surveillance video,” he added.
