Moxa's AWK-5222 Provides Excellent Wireless Reliability and Redundancy

Taipei, Taiwan, Aug. 26, 2009—Moxa knows that many wireless users are concerned with the stability of wireless communications, which is why Moxa designed the AWK-5222 to be immune to disconnections caused by radio interference. The AWK-5222 is a rugged, IEEE 802.11 a/b/g-compliant, 3-in 1 industrial wireless AP/bridge/Client. The AWK offers a greater variety of wireless connection configurations and solutions to help you create the most robust wireless connection for critical industrial wireless applications.

 

To offer superior reliability, the AWK-5222 has two independent RF modules for establishing independent wireless connections for rapid failover. The two independent RF modules not only gives you more topology choices to fit different wireless applications, but also provide you with a flexible and highly reliable solution for your industrial wireless networks. In addition, it has a wireless redundancy mode to increase the reliability of your entire wireless network, and its wireless bridge mode optimizes WDS (Wireless Distribution System). The AWK-5222's AP Client mode can be used to provide Internet access in areas where cabling would be too expensive or impractical to install.

 

The AWK-5222 is also compliant with IEEE 802.3af Power-over-Ethernet (PoE). Power distribution in outdoor and remote areas has never been easier. With 100 ms Turbo Roaming™, which is great for rolling stock applications, and fast BSS (Basic Service Set) transition between access points, data transmission latency is prevented and wireless network roaming is seamless and super fast. On top of it all, the AWK-5222 is equipped with dual Ethernet ports that support RSTP or Turbo Ring™ for added reliability for your entire network.

 

Key Features:
?Redundant dual-RF design for rapid failover
?Industrial wireless AP/bridge/Client with IEEE 802.11a/b/g
?100 ms Turbo Roaming™ for rapid handover during client roaming
?RSTP for dual Ethernet redundancy
