Buy 802.11 Wi-Fi wireless LAN switch system centralized WLAN controller appliances from Connect802 to Take Advantage
of our Wi-Fi Design and Consulting Experience
When one of your primary design goals is to create a Wi-Fi wireless network that's centrally managed and controlled but that doesn't require a network support staff to operate, the Symbol Wireless Switch system is the right choice. The fundamental design involves special Wi-Fi radio units called Access Ports which are installed throughout the building in the same way Wi-Fi access point radios would be installed. The Access Ports are controlled by a central unit called a Wireless Switch. Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) supplies power to the Access Ports so no additional power wiring is required.
Symbol Wireless Switch Appliance
The WS5000 Wireless Switch Appliance provides centralized control and management of Symbol Access Ports in larger Wi-Fi network systems. The advanced VLAN and firewall functions make this an ideal way to implement secure wireless networks in commercial, retail, hospitality, and other large deployments.
Symbol Branch Office Integrated Wireless Switch
The WS2000 Wireless Switch is priced to meet the needs of the small to medium size business. It provides integrated Ethernet switching, Power-over-Ethernet injection, and the advanced features that are consistent with the WS5000 Wireless Switch Appliance. The WS2000 features an integrated DHCP server and NAT gateway in addition to the firewall security features that are found in the WS5000 appliance.
Symbol Access Port Wi-Fi Radio Unit
Operating in the role of a Wi-Fi access point, the Symbol Access Port utilizes an integrated antenna for Wi-Fi and is Ethernet attached to communicate back through a Symbol Wireless Switch for automatic, central management control and security. Available for 802.11b, 802.11b/g, and 802.11a implementations the unit is powered through the Ethernet cable and requires no additional external power connection.
Enterprise VLAN Switch: Wi-Fi Security and Built-In PoE Injectors
Get the best of both worlds: a feature packed, managed secure Ethernet switch PLUS full PoE power injection on every port! Perfectly suited for the infrastructure in a larger Wi-Fi wireless network with up to 24 10/100 Ethernet ports plus an optional Gigabit Ethernet uplink port. All the attached Wi-Fi devices can be powered directly through the Ethernet cable with no additional power wiring for all those devices! The switch is fully managed and has many sophisticated security and control features.
Symbol Spectrum24 Series Access Points
Designed for commercial applications requiring Symbol integration but not demanding a full wireless switch system, the Spectrum24 Series access points provide the same strong security and management features found in the wireless switch systems, but in a stand-alone unit. This is the Symbol model that's commonly seen in retail stores and warehouses across the country.
MC9000 Mobile Computer / RFID Tag Reader
This wireless RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) reader allows an employee to read ("RFID interrogation") the RFID tags on merchandise moving through the inventory supply chain. As legacy UPC bar codes are replaced by RFID tags the use of RFID handheld and permanently installed equipment will continue to grow. Connect802 understands the business case and value proposition for RFID and we know how to build the Wi-Fi wireless network infrastructure that provides the "backhaul" network for communication between the RFID readers and the in-building network.
Symbol Technologies, Inc. is a global leader in mobile data management systems and services with innovative customer solutions based on wireless local area networking for voice and data, application-specific mobile computing and bar code data capture. Symbol's wireless LAN solutions are installed at more than 45,000 customer locations, and more than seven million Symbol scanners and application-specific scanner-integrated mobile computer systems are in use worldwide. Symbol and its global network of business partners provide solutions for retailing, transportation and distribution logistics, parcel and postal delivery, healthcare, education, manufacturing and other industries.
Additional Information About the Symbol MC9000-G Reader
The MC9000-G with RFID from Symbol Technologies is an elegant, ruggedized mobile computer that features integrated support for the most popular Radio Frequency Identification Standard — EPC, the Electronic Product Code. By integrating support for EPC Class 1 RFID reading and programming with a robust commercial mobile computer, the MC9000-G is able to offer an unparalleled level of functionality suitable for a broad range of RFID applications. Combining RFID, bar code reading, imaging, 802.11 connectivity, a full 1/4 VGA screen, and alphanumeric keypad, the MC9000-G with RFID has the flexibility to give your organization real-time access to mission-critical information from key points in your supply chain. Enterprise-wide management and control of the MC9000-G is easy with Symbol's Mobility Services Platform.
Many of the world's largest retailers, manufacturers, and logistics organizations are integrating RFID as part of their supply chain processes, and RFID is rapidly emerging as a key technology across a wide range of markets and applications. With a feature set that delivers superior data collection, communication and collaboration, the MC9000-G with RFID facilitates faster decision-making and increased productivity in a variety of environments — from the factory to the warehouse to the sales floor.
Traditional supply chain applications of RFID rely on automatic reading of tagged items using fixed readers installed at dock doors, mechanized conveyors, depalletization stations, and other "choke" points in the movement of goods. However, when integrated with a mobile solution, RFID technology expands and improves the general functionality and performance of your entire mobile application.
