Upgrade to Industry-leading WLAN Solutions
WLAN networks must now shoulder the burden of increasingly bandwidth-heavy applications, such as video streaming. Even as data traffic at the local level remains manageable, bandwidth bottlenecks may be generated from congested uplinks. Moxa's 802.11n solutions use MIMO (Multiple Input/Multiple Output) to overcome multipath interference and 40 MHz channels to achieve higher data rates. This creates WLAN networks with improved throughput, coverage, and reliability. Backward compatibility with 802.11a/b/g allows users to migrate securely to 802.11n networks.
 
  Reduced handoff time with security is essential to today's wireless LANs. Moxa's breakthrough wireless roaming greatly shrinks roaming time down to millisecond-level, overcoming the connectivity gaps that plague latency-sensitive applications. Perfect for mobile WLAN scenarios, Turbo Roaming allows clients to move between different APs with low-latency handoff across the entire coverage area. A wireless controller with WPA2 is supported by the AWK-4121/3121 to build highly secure and large-scale wireless LANs. Benefits of Turbo Roaming include higher transfer rate, dependable remote monitoring and alerts, and resilience in extreme mobile environments.
Data integrity and network reliability are paramount concerns in mission-critical industrial wireless applications. Moxa offers an industry-leading wireless redundancy solution that features dual independent RF modules with 2.4 or 5 GHz dual-band operation to ensure interference-free and constant communications. In the above application, Moxa's advanced WLAN redundancy using redundant dual-RF design works with Ethernet redundancy, such as RSTP, to achieve a complete redundant network that allows for maximum availability and reliability of the entire communications network.
  Industrial environments are rife with hazards such as water, dust, EMI/noise, and temperature extremes. To rise to these challenges, Moxa's outdoor AWK wireless devices are ruggedized with IP68-rated housing and an extended temperature design. The AWK series meets or exceeds a number of industry standards, such as EN50155 and EN50121-1/-4 for railway, EN61000-6-4/61000-6-2 for heavy industries, and UL C1D2 and ATEX Zone 2 for oil and gas. With this suite of industrially-hardened features, the AWK is a firm foundation for rock-solid WLANs that operate reliably and safely in critical environments.
