Enterprise Wireless Networking with More Security, Power and Memory for High-Performance Mobility

IEEE 802.11b Ethernet-Speed Connectivity for High Performance Wireless Mobile and Portable Computing

Symbol Technologies' AP4131 Access Point provides wireless LAN performance required for advanced mobile networking and business-critical wireless voice and data application support, including 10/100 Base-T Ethernet connectivity, the industry's most open and advanced security solution, and the Motorola 855T processor.

Operating in the 2.4 GHz band at speeds up to 11 Mbps, Spectrum24 mobilizes today's fast-paced workforce with instant, secure wireless access to corporate intranets, and the Internet - while eliminating the expense and time of wiring when your information system requirements call for temporary and ad hoc networking. The result is greater productivity, improved communications, and better customer service.

Scalable Connectivity for Laptops, PDAs, Desktop and Mobile Clients

The AP4131 Access Point supports up to 127 clients with Wi-FiTM certified 802.11b client cards, including Symbol's PC and CompactFlashTM format Wireless NetworkerTM cards for laptops and PDAs, and Spectrum24 Universal Serial Bus for desktop and other USB-enabled equipment. Mobile voice and data devices with embedded wireless connectivity cards also communicate with the AP4131 Access Point. Adding more access points scales your Spectrum24 wireless LAN to support additional users.

Symbol Security Suite: Multi-Option Security Including Kerberos and KeyGuardâ„¢ for Advanced Data Protection

The AP4131 Access Point features Symbol Security Suite, Symbol's comprehensive security suite designed to meet mobile data protection requirements including: industry-standard 40 and 128 bit WEP encryption; KeyGuard, Symbol's TKIP encryption implementation based on the forthcoming 802.11i standard; Kerberos V5 based mobile security; EAP/TLS with 802.1X port-based Network Access Control; RADIUS; or a combination of these choices.

Security intelligence in the AP4131 Access Point also detects the presence of unapproved access points on your network as a potential security breach. For protection against "man-in-the-middle" and denial-of-service attacks, the AP4131 Access Point detects the presence of hackers' rogue and unauthorized access points close to your facilities.

Public/Private WLANs and Class/Priority of Service with Wireless VLANs

Symbol's AP4131 Access Point supports the capability of multiple Extended Service Set Identification (ESSID), which, when mapped to a wired VLAN, extends VLANs to a wireless network. Network administrators can now support multiple user types based on class-of-service, security type and QoS required, all on the same 4131 Access Point. This feature supports both 802.1p/Q standards.

Dynamic Rate Scaling, High-Speed Roaming for Maximum Range and Throughput

The AP4131 Access Point dynamically rate scales, transmitting data at 11 Mbps then automatically scaling to 5.5 Mbps, 2 Mbps, and 1 Mbps to ensure best range and throughput. As signal strength decreases, the transmit rate also decreases, ensuring maximum range while maintaining data integrity. Highspeed roaming additionally ensures Spectrum24 High Rate clients seek the best possible data rate for fastest throughput.

Mobile IP, International Roaming

Mobile IP functionality allows the AP4131 to seamlessly roam across routers as clients physically move from one subnet to another. This ensures uninterrupted connectivity as associates move throughout your facility. Support of the IEEE 802.11d standard for international roaming enables simple, easy operation for international use—the AP4131 Access Point automatically adjusts to local country and regulatory requirements.

Plenum-Rated Metal Housing

Plenum-rated, the AP4131 Access Point meets fire retardant standards for placement in ceilings and other areas throughout your facilities.

Bandwidth Management and Quality of Service

The AP4131 features a packet engine for classifying video, voice and data, and Quality of Service manager for packet prioritization. Class of service solutions enable organizations to protect multimedia applications and contain those that are less urgent.

SNMP V3 for Secure Management; Tools for Easy Administration

The AP4131 Access Point is administered using SNMP v2, HTTP, Telnet and Serial UI. Plus the AP4131 Access Point features SNMP V3, providing enhanced network management security. Administration is supported with a number of bundled management tools for quick install, maintenance, and upgrade. In addition, you can manage your entire WLAN installation using Symbol's suite of wireless management tools, including software for monitoring and controlling network activity and performance.

Cost-Effective, Easy-to-Deploy Power for Wireless Access Points

The Power-over-Ethernet Hub from Symbol Technologies delivers operating power and data to AP4131 Access Points via standard Category 5 Ethernet cable, eliminating the need for 110/220 volt AC cable and power converters at each access point location. This significantly reduces cabling and outlet requirements.

Selection of Antennas

Symbol's selection of high-performance omni-directional (360°) and directional (20° to 90°) antennas provide different coverage patterns to meet site, application and power requirements.

End-to-End Wireless Mobility—Just Add Symbol. And Go.
